Scrappy almost-Mother's Day

It's late on a Saturday night, and I'm letting my husband do the dishes and clean up for Shabbat and talking to y'all instead (bad me).

I had the most wonderful, lovely Shabbos (that's usually how I say it, so I'll go with that here) ever. Nothing too exciting or special, but very restorative. We spent Friday night eating just the two of us and talking, having the "2 a.m. meaning of life" type of conversations that were such a part of dating but can be hard to make time for now. And today, I got to talk scrapbooking with our guest and her eight-year-old daughter, and connect to spirituality again. It was so, so needed and so good!

But, for those of you who came here for a scrapbook page, you're in luck!

This layout was made for Jessica Bree's Be Inspired class at Scrapfreak.com. I was asked to make a page with an interview style, so I interviewed myself--it was the easiest to schedule. And I'm generally a cooperative subject.

I've lived in three places over the three years of law school, which led to many good times, such as interviewing for law firms while the apartment had nothing set up except for a couch frame with a suit draped over it. And moving all my belongings from one place to another the day after exams. Good times.

And one last page for those of you brave enough to read for so long?

An ode to The Body Shop body butters. If I were very, very rich I would have a vanity set up (in my giant marble bathroom, of course) with each and every flavor of this lotion. And pick a different one every night. And it would be awesome. But, alas, we're in reality.

And that's all folks! What are your Mother's Day plans?
