I have so much to share from the past few months, but since we just returned from a trip to Norway and England and I have been awake since 2 am thanks to jet lag and the return of raccoons nesting under our deck and I have no brain power but am desperately trying to stay up at least another hour or so and am obviously writing even longer run-on sentences than normal and am probably not making much sense, I am just going to share some scrapbook pages for now.
These were all made for Ali Edwards’ Creative Team, because she was the only one who could motivate me to scrapbook through morning sickness. For reals. First up: documenting JK’s volcano climbs. I joined him on Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams, but he added Mount Baker, Glacier Peak, and Mount Rainier to complete all five Washington volcanoes. That deserves a scrapbook page!
Next is a gushy page about Nora, our greatest adventure so far. Aaaww.
Back when I put together my hiking/memoir album, I wrote a list of must-make layouts, and TNAB was at the top of that list. We may not be TNABing much these days, but we have a lot of good memories from those tipsy evening summits.
This one documents Nora’s transition from womb-dwelling hiker via various carriers to her current status as a legit biped. (She even hikes with a BACKPACK, which is pretty much the cutest thing ever.)
I participated in Ali’s Day in the Life in April (egads, I just realized that I failed to include a date on this page!) but instead of making a mini album, I just made a spread that will go in Nora’s album. I definitely want to make more of these as our lives and routines change.
This last one is from my birthday trip to Hood Canal, a last-minute adventure that ended up being one of my favorite vacations ever. Seriously, it’s right up there with St. John! Therefore it deserves a spread in the vacation album, even though it was only a weekend trip.
Now I will attempt to make friends with Pacific Standard Time and hopefully return with exciting tales of nauseous hiking and growing bellies (is it chocolate? is it a fetus?) at some point when I start feeling vaguely human again.
