How I love rainy Friday evenings. They make me nostalgic for the week that has been, and excited for the weekend ahead About forty minutes ago, we finished eating out roast chicken dinner, and the boys are now tucked up, all cosy and warm, into their beds. Rick has already cleaned the kitchen and the meals area, which means we now have an entire evening before us – free to do whatever we want. Sounds amazing, I know, but the reality is that Rick needs to keep working and I will be filing, budgeting and reconciling bank accounts. (Yay! Not.) I’m also hoping to draft up an action plan in preparation for Bear’s baptism and first birthday celebration in a week’s time. I’ve already snuck in a power nap, so hopefully it’s all full steam ahead for this cold Friday night. (If I don’t procrastinate, I get to eat a Ferrero Raffaello. That’s the deal.)
Anyway, ever since I broke through that wall, I’ve been able to re-establish a good rhythm with our Project Life album. I’ve even managed to catch up on two months of journaling and photos for each of the boy’s individual albums, so I’m feeling pretty happy about my memory-keeping efforts as of this moment. Definitely looking forward to taking it a bit more easily this month…
What happened in Week 8?
Pete’s fourth birthday! I baked a cake, and we had grandparents over for a celebratory afternoon tea. The day after that, it was the Lens & Layout workshop, so I guess you could said it was a pretty big week.
How were the photos taken and processed?
All photos were taken with my Fujifilm X100S and edited using VSCO Film in Aperture.
Favourite photos from Week 8?
Definitely the top two photos of Pete on the first page. It was Rick’s idea to cover him up with streamers, and I thought he looked so very cute. Gosh I love that boy.
Number of pages and inserts?
I had four 8×10 inserts and one 8×8 insert.
I love all the pops of colour against the white backgrounds. The spread looks very fun, and it’s one that always makes me smile when I’m flipping through the album.
