thankful thursday {link up}


{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below...}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Getting our January cards in the mail.  Woop!  Woop!  Every year my "January cards" get closer and closer to turning into "February cards" ...and this year was no exception.  Which, now that I think about it, this is pretty much why we started doing January cards to begin with... because we couldn't seem to get our act together for Christmas cards.  But never-the-less... they.are.in.the.mail.

2) My new Project Life kit.  Last year I started using Becky Higgins' Project Life system as an attempt to preserve my memories... and while I may be just a tad behind (try April) on last year's album... I am still feeling confident enough to try again for 2013.  This year I went with the Seafoam edition designed by the very talented Elise Blaha Cripe... and I can't wait to start playing with all of this pretty paper!!

3) Friend's birthdays.  Especially when they turn the same age as me and I'm no longer the lone-31 year old in my friend group:)  This past weekend, we celebrated my dear friend Amanda's birthday, with a fun girl's-night-out dinner... a tiara and necessary birthday sash... and some mad Mexican train dominos.  That's how we do it.

You always make me want to play with pretty paper! One of these days, I'll be ready to take that plunge. Maybe.

I've been considering doing Project Life because it seems like a very doable way to scrap our lives. Perhaps I'll start this year! :)

Friend's birthdays are always fun -- especially when they catch up to the age you are!
