It's a grand long weekend for us, we celebrate our nation's 43rd year of Independence (yes, we're young!) tomorrow, tonight the Olympics starts, and the boys have two birthday parties to go to, and we an old freinds' get together BBQ.. phew!
Weekends are so precious. Recently dh and I have been recalling how when we first got married, we were working so hard at our young careers, that weekends were all we had time for each other. One day back then we calculated how many weekends we'd have, if we lived to a certain age, and were shocked to find it was only about 2,500 weekends!! And now we only have 1,700 or so to go!! Besides worship at church and visiting my mom every sunday, at one stage we used to bring the boys out somewhere different every weekend, at another we had a schedule of speech & drama and Mosaic classes, hhmm... now we are basically doing the library and piano class routine... still, as long as it is family time, I guess it's time well-spent. How do you spend your weekends? May we all spend them thoughtfully. :)
Finally got the layouts done. Was not 100% pleased with them, but Im stopping myself from being too perfectionist, and focus on scrapping and recording memories. I still have Orlando pictures to go! And then I would have spent the entire year just scrapping last year's trip!!! Urgh! I'm glad I did the Everydaylife album (by Ali Edwards) starring our everyday life circa 2008, that covered a lot of ground quickly!
Here's all our night shots in NY, I had great fun putting the fun, whimsical touch to this!Credits:Skyline by IKDesigns, everything else from "Paint the sky with stars" kit by Lazy Kitty, loved it!
And this is us at the Natural History Museum.. i'm trying out a 'straight' style, hehe, I'm actually a linear and minimalist girl at heart, though I have recently been having lots of fun with 'skewed' photo layouts. :)
