Dreaming of Warm Weather and Sandy Beaches!


Anybody else dreaming of a vacation?!  My first choice would be the ocean.  Ahhhh, the beach…  My second choice and true love is the mountains.  Beautiful, glorious mountains!  Where would be your ideal vacation?

The other day I told my husband we should make a trek to Yellowstone this summer.  He looked at me like I had lost my mind…he gives me that look often I’m afraid!  We seriously talked about it, but decided maybe to stay closer to home this summer and try for Yellowstone next summer.  Give the girls another year.  I will have to share my “Yellowstone Vacation” story with you some time. 😉

Beyond just dreaming of a big vacation I am dreaming of small vacations on the weekends – going camping!  I  I can’t wait until it gets warm enough to start packing up our gear and camping for the weekend!  Seriously, one of my most favorite activities!

I am inspired to make a quick album about our camping trip last fall.  And it just so happens I have a coupon for Shutterfly which expires tomorrow.  (Am I the only one who puts these off until the last minute?)  So, off to document the girls fishing, J eating the worm dirt, s’more making, and memories!



Project Life


Becky Higgins has long been one of my favorite scrapbookers because of her simple and manageable approach.  I absolutely love her Project Life project.  If you haven’t checked it out, you should!  You can use the kit to document an entire year, a lifetime of pictures, just anything you need!  It’s now available in digital or traditional — how exciting!!  Tater Tots & Jello is providing the chance to win a starter kit!

I have wanted to do this project since the first year she developed it…but I was scared I would spend the money and not stay committed to finishing the project.  Well, this is the year!!  A friend and I are going to both do the project and keep each other on track!  Yay!!  I feel as though I let life get away from me and don’t take the time to appreciate the blessings of our every day life..and this is my wake up call to myself — to make me open my eyes to the beauty of our every day life!

Seriously, you just have to check it out!
