Sailing through marriage?

Grr...blogger is being really difficult. I keep losing my post...so for the third time....here is a layout (above) using a photo taken by one of those throwaway cameras which were all the rage in the 90's. But I love it. It makes me happy. Reminds me of family holidays in France. I used the cute pic over at Punky Scraps as inspiration and used the muted pastels and polka dots and way more white space than I usually do. Sometimes simple is best! Love the song. Decided to do some candid journalling about my abilities (or inabilities) as a wife. The things I miss about being single. The things about marriage that drive me (and us) up the wall. But overall a positive message about being in it for the long haul and *trying* to be better! Thanks scrapping the music (cannot link to your blog -is anyone elses blogger being difficult??) I trust that you all had a fab weekend!?


  1. Love love love the canoe page - the title is awesome! and I think simple definitely worked best for this page, it made me teary eyed thinking about all the fun holidays!
    I like the heart idea for the marriage layout, By's advice (after I read out your journalling to him) ...buy a bigger bed! xxx
