december daily - day one

Here we go...a little late in the day but I still did it! I spent way too much time working on this instead of finishing up my decorating so now I'll be up late tonight but oh well. I work 12 hours on Wednesday so I'll post Day 2 and Day 3 sometime Thursday.

I'll also be sharing about my album and plan later this week. Here's Day One...click image to enlarge.

Journaling says...

"Hello December! I have been greatly anticipating your arrival. After all, you are my favorite month of the year! I am looking forward to all December holds for our little family of three. I already feel so much joy. Today, Caroline and I wore smiles for no reason. In the car, running errands, we grinned as we drove along. There was an undercurrent of joy riding with us. We have both caught the Christmas spirit. Christmas carols play in the car and the stores and it makes me feel peaceful and happy. While shopping, Caroline said, “It’s the first day of Christmas!”  I felt peace. I felt thankful. Tonight, we got the trees and decorations out and I got about half of the decorating done…pretty much everything except the ornaments on the trees. My favorite part of unwrapping everything is seeing all the little faces of the snowmen, nutcrackers and Santas. All their happy faces reflect mine and my baby girl’s. So much joy. We are so blessed to live this life and we are going to savor this season. Bring on the happy, December! We’re ready!"

Here it is in the album...

I have picked through one million tiny items and kept telling myself, "Keep it simple!" That's going to have to be my mantra if I'm going to get it done. I'm hearing Ali's voice in my head. 


Thanks for stopping by! Happy December!

This is completely adorable -- love all those faces. I don't usually do collage prints in my DD, but this is *perfect* for showing ornaments, etc. :)
