Passover is still going on and we have been enjoying the time together! I've been off this week and little E has started to become acquainted with her "baby school," which I'll talk more about in a later post if y'all are interested. I have a lot of feelings about sending her to someone else's care, but I do think this is the best arrangement for us for now, and I'm trying to follow my "one little word" and actually take things one day at a time.
I wanted to share some older layouts today that have been sitting around gathering dust. This first layout is about the different seasons in life--at the time I created it, I was struggling with infertility and job-hunting. Now I have a baby and a job, so the season has definitely shifted!
There's a pull-out pocket containing more journaling. Man, I love those Lullaby thickers. Need about 700 more packs.
This next layout is about one of the items on my unofficial "bucket list," which is writing a book. One day, one day. Maybe when E starts napping?
This last layout documents our "second wedding." See, we were that unorganized couple that realized two days before our wedding that we needed to fill out forms and all for our religious ceremony to be legally valid. Oops. Add to that the fact that it's considered a special thing in Judaism to not see each other the week before your wedding (maybe it's a "protect the groom" maneuver--ha!), and I didn't want to risk losing any specialness, so we decided to just do a second wedding at City Hall after our first wedding.
Sounds like a great plan, but just try to get married in the 3 days before the deadline for filing taxes jointly. Long lines, people. But nevertheless, we got civilly married, jeans skirt and all.
I used Lawn Party, my most favorite Studio Calico kit to date, on this one. Yum.
Before I go, I wanted to answer a few Passover questions. Many of you wanted to know what's up with all the tinfoil. Basic answer is that the surfaces you eat and prepare food on during the year aren't kosher for Passover. So unless you get all new countertops (which might not be the worst idea, come to think of it....) you just cover up the surfaces with foil, and you have yourself a nice and kosher, albeit spaceship-looking, kitchen for Passover. We block off cabinets and fridge shelves so that we don't accidentally eat something tasty looking that's probably better than matza:) And we do keep special dishes and platters and everything just for Passover.
And before I really go, I couldn't leave you without a picture of the munckin. Here she is looking all business with her stuffed bear. Oh my heavens.
So tell me, how many old layouts do YOU have lying around?
