Peaceful Bliss


Still nice and quiet in my world. Just a whole lot of show and tell going on around here. Been busy digging into some kit goodness the past few days. I have some ideas for a mini album rolling around in my head, thinking that will be my next task. Until then, here are two LO's with my beautiful Jan. Poppy Ink Kit. Loved the gold ric-rac, and really enjoying putting a twist on my own handwriting. I have always avoided my handwriting, and therefore journaling. Ironically, I actually believe journaling to be a super vital part of preserving memories. So with that said, I am challenging myself to go beyond my comfort zone and get my write on. 'Dream with Faith,' was inspired by Jill and her ultra awesome handwriting, I loved the curly-Q style on her recent LO's. Just had to give it a try myself, needless to say I have decided to try it more often.
We took a much needed day out yesterday. My Mom, Bella and I strolled around the UOP campus, it was such a beautiful day to be out and about and the sky was the most vibrant shade of blue. The campus tower never looked so amazing against the sky.

You know me, I never can resist fun photos of little miss Bella, and of course I have to share them with you. It has been so cold lately and yesterday was such fun. Besides, it had been breaking my heart to hear a girl say, "Peas go owside Mama."



Sweet Dreams...

There you go again...
Just when I think your latest LO is my fave, you pull out two more masterpieces!

I adore them both.
I also believe our handwriting is an integral (big word for the day) part of our layouts.
Just think how much Bella will treasure having Mommy's hand on them when she is older.

Love the photos.
She is so photogenic.
Takes after her mommy!
