Wow, just Wow
Your layout is quite beautiful to look at, but it's the journaling that brought tears to my eyes. Love the "real-ness" of it, yet how much love shines through.
I like the pictures, but your journaling really evokes emotion with me about remembering to find those "places" that give us peace and joy and let the rest go. thank you for sharing.

**journaling** One of the blogs I read challenged us, the readers, to post a photo of the things that make us happy today. These are the photos I chose. Maybe it's because I'm consciously choosing to smile instead of snapping. Maybe it's because I'm focusing on their good behavior rather than their naughty tricks. But lately, I have felt *JOY* when I think of them. And I love my children dearly, but I'd be the first to acknowledge that they are less than perfect. They're full of energy, quite creative, loud, mischevious, and altogether annoying sometimes. But, they're also helpful, motivated, charming, full of love, and each one holds a piece of my heart. For so long, I've felt like a spring, coiled too tightly, about to snap from the pressure of parenthood. Lately, that feeling has eased, the tense coil has loosened. I've found a peaceful place- a happy place- and I never want to lose this.
