What a difference a year makes....

After not doing anything crafty for a while following the move, I'm finally getting back in the swing of things, making layouts (that I'm so excited to share soon!) and catching up on over two months of Project Life. I get the "don't catch up, just move forward" philosophy, but since I have so many photos and written down memories of these months of E's first year, I just can't bear to leave them out. While going through some photos to add to my album, I came upon this one, taken on June 2nd:

If you're been around here a while, you may remember me writing about last year's June 2.

As S and I unpacked our apartment to move to the house, we took down this card that I had made for him the year before, to tell him the good news:

And realized that it was just about one year since the day we found out E was on her way.

Just 365 or so days later, and we had a beautiful, smiley baby girl in our arms.  G-d has been so good to us.

Amazing what a difference a year can make, right?  I hope I always remember through the hard times that life is always changing--for the best.


  1. How very touching! This brought tears to my eyes!! I'm so very happy for you and your family!! What a precious gift you have!

  2. Sounds like it was a wonderful year!

  3. I'm glad you were blessed with such a happy year!

  4. Beautiful!
    I say this all of the time.
    I think we need a little bit of the hard times so we can appreciate when things are good :)

  5. What a sweet baby. Love the pic of you two.
