Great Book

I went walking with a friend last week and she loaned me this book.  I loved it!  

So simple and so true.  It's very common-sense, but easier said then done sometimes:)

Week 15

I have finally found more of the "look" I want in my digital pages!  These templates from Tracy Larsen's designs are so nice and bright white.

I try to always keep funny things the kids say but wasn't sure how to incorporate them into the Project Life pages.  I love the white boxes with the light gray text.

The down side is that all these layers of 3x4 templates and photo boxes get very confusing and therefore it takes me longer to complete the pages.  I am hoping that as I find my groove, it will speed up.  But I am really happy with how these turned out.

When my parents were visiting this past weekend, we did enjoy looking through the pages I have had printed out.  While it is neat to look back, chronology still is not my preferred way to document.

For now I am using Project Life as a way to get pictures and stories down, but I could also see that these pages will show me patterns that I can later tell in a time-spanned story.

Week 14

A 4-day weekend trip with my parents to the beach gave me the opportunity to take pictures of our favorite things to do while we're there.  The kids loved the hot tub and some of our favorite restaurants, and of course special activities with the grandparents.  My parents have always loved the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  We would go every summer for a family beach week.

Once I was older and started going to the beach with other families, I realized that some families switch it up annually and try out other beaches.  So that's kind of what we've done with Adam's family.  I go back and forth- not sure what we'll end up sticking with when it comes to our little 4-person family.

I will say that the weather near Spring Break was SO lovely at the beach that I would prefer to take that week and just skip a summer beach visit.

Week 13

Happy to have these pages done and then I uploaded my folder of PAGES TO PRINT to Persnickety Prints.  They print 12x12 sheets for 1.99 each and I'll have them in a couple of days!
