This was the week that 'summer' started for us...the weather got REALLY nice, it was the long weekend in May, the kids used the kiddie pool for the first time, the flowers started coming out...I had my first photoshoot of the year (well, besides a winter session), and we had some visitors (if course no pictures of that, I am the WORST at photographing 'events' like visits, trips, etc.) 

I like how some layouts end up being a certain colour or theme...this spread has a lot of yellow in it, which works out well with the start of summer theme. 2 Instagram collages this week, our Weekly Review spread out on 2 small cards, a journaling spot with Dan's handwriting on it (!), and lots of journaling spots/labels, as usual. My think my favourite part of this week might be the 2 photos of the kids in the pool on the 2nd page, I put the "&" Thicker between them on top of the page protector and added "lamb" and "lioness"with little letter stickers. Pretty much sums up their personalities ;)

Seems so long ago already, so happy to have these memories written down!

Alright, confession time: I've fallen off the Project Life wagon. As I predicted at the beginning of the year, as soon as things started to get busy for me at work, I completely got out of the habit of taking photos at home. I haven't done any spreads for July yet so I'm about 3 weeks behind, and for one of those weeks I don't have any photos except Instagrams...oops! Trying not to freak out about it, going to attempt to catch up this week, but the layouts may be quick bare from here on out (which is totally ok, it's the big picture that matters in the end...) We'll see how it goes, wish me luck!

Anyway, I'll keep sharing what I do have, since I'm so behind in that too! This is Week 20, way back in May, holy! Springtime, things were just starting to warm up and grow in our yard, we were very excited about it :) Nothing really special on this layout, one funny thing though: the card I wrote TO Oshi, in 2nd person...I have no idea why I did that, as if she would one day come back and read it like the kids, lol. I also included some quotes from my Twitter feed as a filler; gotta love social media for randomness like that!

Here we go!

Week 21 comin' right up!
