Using Calendar Grid Scrapbook Pages to Record Historic Events

I like to think of my scrapbooks as more than just a collection of photos that highlight our family events but rather as my own personal diary that tells the story of my life.   So I like to include mention of significant local and world events in my albums along with commentary of how the events impacted me and my family at the time.  This expands my role from memory keeper to history keeper.  Essentially my albums have become a snap shot of history in the making.

Argyle Border Punch Ideas

New Year’s Resolutions with the Assistance of Daily Docket

I love my family and spending time with them, I also love a house that isn’t in complete chaos, I love baking, I love my hobbies… the list goes on. There’s a lot of love, but  only so much time. It’s hard!

Balance is key, and I’m still in pursuit of it, but in the meantime I am going to work on priorities.

This means letting the dishes wait until the kids are in bed and choosing to build couch cushion forts instead. This means hiring a babysitter and going on date nights. This means being present in the moment – even if we are just walking home from school or shopping for groceries – memories can be made anywhere!
