life is lovely update.

I am bad at keeping up with much of anything when life gets so busy and stressful. Friends, tv, journaling, sleep, life in general. I have basically just been throwing stuff in my 2011 book. Pictures, tickets from events, notecards, etc., but it is seriously lacking in the journaling/storytelling end of it. I don’t know how much that really matters to the memory of things, but the book itself needs some words to set off the jumbled mess of everything else. I love the mess, don’t get me wrong, but some scribbles, thoughts, quotes, whatever are welcomed.

It starts NOW!

p.s. excuse the craptastic pictures. I took them on a gray day with barely any light!

life is lovely.

Lots of color, lots of pattern, lots of pictures (to come of course), lots of love(ly).

I love when an idea feels good and gets me excited. I have been waiting around for something to get me in gear on this 2011 Life is Lovely book, but nothing did. Until last night. Luckily, I’m only a month behind and not six. It’s hard to catch up once you’ve got 6 months of pictures and mementos stuff to get into a mini.

I bought the paper at Big Lots during the summer, and I didn’t have any idea what to do with it. It was more than worth the 5 bucks I paid for it. It’s bright and cheerful and optimistic, and that’s what I am hoping the rest of 2011 is too.

It has to be. Stay tuned.

Also, happy birthday to my sister today! Love you Darcy!
