There was a time in my life where I was a single teacher. I thought the only stories I had worth telling were about the children in my class. It's sad really. All those years of my life I thought weren't worthy of documenting. It would have been nice to have photos of my life before I was married. It's over fifteen years later and now I make sure I am in my albums.
I love to tell my own story. What I love, what makes me happy, and to share my thoughts about life for my children to read about later when they are older. Most of all, I love to scrapbook because it's easy to remember those hard times. It's harder to remember the good - those little things that make up everyday happiness.
Maybe you can understand. Life isn't easy. Remembering life can be even harder (especially if you are a mother of small children). I think a good memory comes with a full nights sleep and that doesn't happen until your child is a teenager! Ha! It is one of the reasons why I love memory keeping and this holiday! It's a way to celebrate documenting the everyday! It's also a way to connect with other friends who "get you", like the Bazzill Basics design team. I love Kelly who is next on the hop! Not only is she a sweetheart in real life, but she is so inspirational! Head over to her blog now to see what she has created!
