Its always a bit tough for me after a big holiday week with lots of hustle bustle and excitement to put something together. Instead of forcing it to be something other than what it truly is, I find it best to just stick to the photos and let them speak for themselves. Forcing it never works for me. Sometimes taking a step back and taking a deep breathe helps. I like to think weeks after holidays are for that, getting back to basics, living our day to day and embracing it for what it is.
Here is the full spread
Simone's second trip to the dentist and she did great. They had taken xrays on her first visit 6 months ago and when the doctor put them up on the screen to talk about them I did snap a photo but it didn't turn out well at all. /So on this visit I asked if I could have a copy and she was more than happy to oblige. I love that it shows Simone's adult teeth waiting in the wings. My new profile pic that was in my This is Me, a happy nap snuggle that is so not the norm these days, so I sat and didn't move until she woke up. A favorite, 'we had a big, late lunch' dinner for us. We had a second Easter on Wednesday evening with our extended family, a good time had by all including a yummy dessert that begged to be enjoyed from the mixer.
I wanted to balance out the pink on the other side in someway and had a different version of the title card made using some left over confetti but it just didn't seem right. So late Monday evening this happened instead. Its a pattern I've been seeing a lot lately and loving. Simple cuts really and a simple calendar stamp (Amy Tangerine). I used a pink highlighter to mark the days. Our blueberry bush is ready to explode, hoping the birds don't eat them all again this year. A new store opened in town, yay! A bit about my Becky Higgins moment. My 2,000th upload to Instagram, my This is Me book. My sister in law turned me on to this crossword app and I've been going back doing older puzzles and loved this clue. It was space week at school, so happy to find a place for the constellation card from the February Studio Calico kit. And Mad Men is back, did you watch? I like to think I'm smart enough for this show but sometimes, I have no idea what's going on or where its headed. I guess that's the beauty.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
