Well, I guess I'm following a weekly spread concept...but loosely...meaning that if my daughter sends me 4 cute pictures of herself doing her everyday things like walking on campus, or studying, I might put some in the week it happened, and one or two in the weeks before or after it. I'm just going to go about it in a much more "it's all good" approach.
I'm also not trying to catch Every. Single. Thing. anymore. That's a relief, that was overwhelming and kind of busy/ugly ;) On the other hand, If I decide to take a photo of the same succulent every week just because I like it, that's fine too! Much more relaxed.
I wasn't at this baseball game, but a friend whose son was playing on the opposing team (our boys played together for years previously) was thoughtful enough to take some photos and sent them to me. Love that face above haha. Anyway, I decided to use them all, so added a 6x12 insert. I filled the backside with pictures from my daughter's weekend volunteer committe campout and a journaling card with a post it note to have her write on it what the event was, or whatever she wants to remember from the weekend.
I'll tell you, one thing this documenting does is make me aware of how fast time flies. And how much we do do, and to notice and celebrate someof the small things that would likely be forever forgotten, like dinner at our friends' house.
I've been going pretty plain, not so much embellishing, and filling the pockets with mostly photos. That feels more my style. I love the little cream on white arrow above. Subtle. I think it will have a more timeless appeal. I'm trying to write a little more too, not just let the photos do all the talking.
Like I said before, it all works and I'm glad I'm doing it, no matter which way I choose to go about it. I've decided my plan so far is to have no plan. So far so good!
