LOAD Day 30

One more day to go. And if you know me, you know I'm scrambling! It is the day before Halloween and costumes are needed tonight for Trunk-or-Treat...and they're not finished yet! Yikes. I work best under pressure (read - procrastinate until the last possible moment) but this year takes the cake!! I don't think I've ever NOT been done so late.

I wanted to use the new Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend woodgrain alpha for the title - turns out there is no "Z"! What's up with that?!!
BTW, I love CC. And the new Nutmeg line is darling. But really, no Z??

LOAD Day 11

Reflecting a little on how fast time has gone. I took Matthew to pick out and pay for his Homecoming date's corsage yesterday. How did that sweet little boy grow up so fast?!

A friend of mine has been taking senior portraits for some of the kids in our ward. As I looked over her website with lots of gorgeous proofs, I told her she needed to do Matt's. NEXT. YEAR. That shocked me. It hit me, hard. He will be a senior next year. The very last year that he will for sure be living in my home, directly in my realm of influence. I suddenly felt like I had so much left to do in the raising of my oldest. And yes, for those who know me, lots of tears were shed while finishing this page.

Studio Calico's Fountain Square kit + add-ons from November 08.

Grrr...I could not find any good light for getting good photos of these layouts. All of my favorite places around the house just ended up blah and dark. Obviously, autumn is going to require some searching and revamping of layout photo shoots.
