The complete title to this LO should be “Getting My Shit Together”, but I’ll stick with the shortened version. I had a completely different idea for this kit, but seeing the word strips took me in a whole different direction. I love it when products inspire in that way, making you think of a story you might not have otherwise told.
Journaling reads- I SO did not have my sh*t together this morning. We’d been crazy busy the past few weeks with Charles and John visiting, Christmas, recovering from Vegas and a cold, etc. The vow renewal felt almost like an afterthought. I was so stressed out and didn’t feel like myself at all. It was a challenge getting into that right, loving headspace. At first I was thinking of 100 different little annoyances, from not having my nails done to my hair blowing around, to the freakin’ sun, who was NOT cooperating! But once we were there, in front of each other, all my stress started melting away and I began to really enjoy myself. And to remember why we were there in the first place. It had nothing to do with my hair, or the tractor that kept going up and down the beach, or that the sun was hiding behind the clouds instead of providing a nice backdrop for pictures. It was about sharing something special with our little family. It was about smiling and laughing together like we do every day. It was about celebrating ten years of marriage, and many more to come.
Sidenote- Who else starts out wedding layouts by talking about how junky they feel, and how their stepson is trying not to throw up? Apparently I do, LOL. Next up is a page about how we only spent $15 on new wedding clothes! (I’m totally not kidding) It really was an amazingly beautiful day though, but also so “us” in that ridiculous things happened. And yes, I will eventually get to the tractor story.
