starting a monthly photo series of the kids to serve as title cards in this year’s Project Life using these templates from Paislee Press. enjoying the extra time at home I’ve had this week due to Liam’s most recent illness (virus turned secondary bacterial sinus infection). putting the last of the Christmas decorations away. attempting to unsubscribe from the Madewell newsletter, because they send promotions every day and I’ve been unable to keep myself from buying these and these (but my unsubscribe attempts don’t work for some reason). drinking cafe mochas. researching what to make with fresh lemons since my  neighbor gave me a bunch she cut from her tree (thinking about trying this). planning Liam’s birthday party which is in just…

project life 2014 : weeks 51 – 52

January 8, 2015

Finished up 2014! Even though this time period included Christmas I didn’t even do an insert because I will be putting together a holiday minibook (eventually). I really just wanted to get this done, and I did. I definitely didn’t feel like doing an end page but I hated the look of the empty page protectors, so I did this. And now I’m thinking I might do something similar for my 2015 title page because I really don’t have time to get creative or take additional photos just for that. We’ll see! 0 Like

what i read : october to december 2014

January 6, 2015

I meant to post this last week, but totally forgot! So here’s the reading I did in the last three months of 2014, and tomorrow I’m going to talk more about my reading plans for this year. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart – I loved the friendship between the four main characters and they were each so well-drawn. The setting was a character in itself. I was really into the mystery aspect and the way hints were dropped along the way was well done. I didn’t try to guess the end so when the truth came out I had to reorient and then the book became even better to me. Hard not to immediately re-read. (4 stars) Attachments by…

january 2015 goals

January 5, 2015

Here are my first set of monthly goals for the year! I am choosing one goal for each of six categories that I want to make progress in. As I wrote about in my personal planning post, these do not include big, serious subjects (like health, spirituality, finances, etc.) but are nonessential tweaks I want to make to add happiness to my life. I think they will also help me on my journey to feeling light. Nagging task: Clean the car I keep my car fairly uncluttered and don’t leave trash in there, but I’m not the only one who drives it and lugging around two kids just begs for crumbs and random toys to be left in there. Purchase: Running…

project life 2014 : weeks 49 – 50

January 2, 2015

Happy Friday! The kids and I have had a fun (although lacking in sleep and too quick) trip to see friends and we are headed home today to settle back into routine. We have a busy January but after that I’m hopeful things will calm down! My memory-keeping projects are all still in progress. I’m on track with Project Life, but this weekend I need to wrap up 2014’s album and put together a title page for 2015. I am slowly working on my Week in the Life album, and I plan to share each day here as I complete it. Once that is done I’m going to work on my December Daily album. If it’s summertime before that one…
