Recently Andrew has been bringing me *stuff* and sending me photos without prompting – his input has really helped me from getting A) burnt out with Project Life and B ) too far behind.
In the spreads I’m sharing today, he definitely had an input.
And I LOVE that.
I love that Project Life provides a super simple platform for my husband to share in our family’s memory keeping …. without making him sit down to cut paper or choose stickers with me
Here is my Project Life spreads from the end of June to beginning of July – June 25-July 8 …. My weeks run Monday to Sunday – which I love, because they keep the weekends together in a chunk. So the images are *roughly* arranged from Monday on the left to Sunday on the right.
(if you’d like to see the images larger, you should be able to click through to view them on Flickr)
Week 13: June 25 – July 1
This week was mostly low-key with a bunch of family get-togethers mixed in
The Sunday before I found out my beloved friend Miranda got engaged (she’s the best) – so Monday morning we texted about wedding plans and dates back and forth. I don’t know when the last time I was this excited for someone else’s engagement – so in it goes to Project Life.
The Green Day stuff ….. The photo of the band, and the article text below are from Rolling Stone. Andrew works in a mixing studio, and the band was in the studio for about 3 weeks in June – so in it goes to Project Life. The t-shirt photo is from a wardrobe selection the boys did, and the paper photo below is (blurred out) lyrics to one of the songs from the new album.
Yea, Andrew is pretty cool He Xeroxed the Rolling Stone article for me specifically for Project Life
Andrew’s mom and grandma came over to see
us the kittens one morning, and the rest of the week we just snuggled with the kittens.
Sunday was a full day – drove down to Long Beach to pick up a friend at the airport, then visit our nephew (in Long Beach) then home then a family birthday dinner ….
Just lots of little things that probably wouldn’t get a scrapbook page on their own – but can absolutely warrant a photo pocket in Project Life!
Week 14: July 2 – July 8
This week we had a friend stay with us most of the week! That + the 4th of July holiday make this a little out-of-the-ordinary week….
Since our friend Liz was in town this week from Wisconsin, Andrew tried to take more time off than he otherwise would have. On Monday, she wanted to see the beach so the 2 of them went hiking in Malibu (while I went to work like a chump). Andrew (bless his heart) brought me a copy of the trail map for Project Life.
I’m telling you, without him to remind me there would be no *stuff* in my album!
4th of July fell on a Wednesday this year – I LOVE days off in the middle of the week! Andrew happened to have the day off as well, so we had a relaxing morning at home, then invited ourselves over to our friends’ house for an evening BBQ. Neither of us are super interested in fighting crowds to see fireworks at home, so it was the perfect way to spend the holiday …
One of our ‘family portraits’ Liz took while she was here …. and a selection of the Wisconsin beers she brought with her for Andrew to try! Such a fun little gift
She left Friday morning, so our weekend was pretty simple and quiet…. just the 2 of us. Napping with the kittens, taking our first walk around our new neighborhood ….
And I started working on 30 Days of Lists in earnest.
(the photo on the bottom right of Khaleesi on her back? Andrew calls that the “drunken puppet” …. that cat LOVES being on her back!)
