I decided at some point earlier this year to divide my Project Life 2014 into three books. One for January through May, one for our five weeks with the Little Man, and one for the rest of the year. These pages will mark the end of my first book!
The first two pages are a mix of everyday photos.
Journaling reads- This week I hung up pictures and decorated our bedroom. We ate out a lot- Joe’s for pizza, Crocante for dessert, D’Apple for breakfast, and Larry’s for ice cream. We also checked out Barnes and Noble and bought new tires for the car. On Friday night we stayed up late and snuck into the park to try and catch the Camelopardalids meteor shower. We saw “something”, but not sure what it was. It was fun to sit outside and look at stars though! On Sunday we went to the RC track for the first time.
I took a ton of pictures of Miss Kitty the night we stayed up late to watch the meteor shower, so I added them all in a page.
But those pictures don’t compare to the sheer number I took at the RC track. Maybe 200? So yeah, those needed their own page too.
The last page for my book was a partial week, the last couple of days before we went to North Dakota. I relied heavily on my Momento app to remember things I didn’t have pictures for. The blurred out square is a picture of my sister’s new apartment complex we took from their website.
Journaling reads- This was our last few days before going to pick up [Little Man] for the summer. The most exciting thing that happened this week was that Jamie and Ryan got approved for an apartment! So happy for them! C sent us some silly pictures, we went for walks, and my seedlings grew. I finished Gone Girl. Maya Angelou passed away. The #yesallwomen hashtag blew up in response to the shootings in Santa Barbara last weekend. These few days were filled with cleaning, packing and planning for Summer of Awesome 2014!
And that wraps up my first book! I feel very accomplished! I probably won’t get it printed for a long time, but it’s a great feeling to see them all together on my PL2014 page. Tonight I’m going to sit down with Jason and force him to scroll through them all. He’s super psyched of course 😛
I’ve already started working on our summer book. I had initially thought of doing a “summer daily” book, similar to everyone’s December Daily. But I take way too many pictures and have written way too many words for that to be feasible. (Some days will probably have five pages). I can’t wait to start sharing them next week!
