Today marks a new chapter, it is currently filled with boxes! We are finishing up packing and we will be picking the UHaul up Saturday morning. With the help of our friends we will be loading everything up and moving to New Hampshire. I am excited, so excited. It is also kind of bittersweet. I know half the people in my program I probably will not keep in touch with, but I really hope to keep the bonds between my professors and classmates that I was closest with.
Change is scary and exciting all at the same time, but I am ready to embrace it. I am ready to be in NH and I am ready to finish my clinicals! I am excited for the road ahead and I am excited that my husband and I are on this journey together, he will be done Monday! I'm cherishing this time of change right now and thankful for all of the opportunities I have had. Thank you to everyone of you who has supported me on my journey.
Happy Wednesday, friend.

It really can be as simple or as complex as you make it. I loved working from both the turquoise kit and seafoam kit this year, the colors worked pretty well together and I was happy with how most of my spreads ended up coming out. I tried out a few different page layouts over the course of the year, my favorite being Design A spreads. I just loved the ease of Design A and I always had the right kinds of pictures to fill them. I was also a pretty big fan of Design F pages. I used way more iPhone photos than DSLR photos, most likely just because the ease that comes with having my phone constantly with me.
I started out sharing my spreads on Sundays, that way people who wanted to see them could, but I slowly fell behind and then always forgot to take pictures and post them! I hope to post some of the most recent spreads soon. Most of the pictures included in this years spread were everyday moments that I captured, I tried to be real with what I recorded. I also did a lot of journaling, which I loved and I tried to capture at least one main story per spread, as well as a mini recap from the week. I did manage to tackle this every week, with the exception of one week in February, I combined 2 weeks, I just did not have enough pictures for 2 separate weeks!
So what did I love?
- Design A pages
- The ease of PL
- Capturing real every day moments
What did I not love?
- Falling behind
- Some layouts not looking cohesive
- Using my iPhone more than my DSLR
There are so many things I will be changing for tackling PL in 2014, I will be sharing my goals and aim for that soon.
Did you tackle PL this year? What did you think about the year and how it went?
