happiness is . . . traveling!

Ohhhh, how I love to travel! I love a good adventure and see places I’ve never been before. Sadly, due to a couple of work conflicts, we couldn’t take our summer vaca. Oh the agony! And not getting to hang with my dear friend and her family….which I was so looking forward to….dang it.

Add to that, our neighbor heading to Amsterdam for work (I looove Amsterdam!!), Kass talking about seeing some photos of London and Edinburgh (also love), and yesterday at a neighborhood birthday brunch–discussing the fabulous Oregon Coast, where a few of us had been.

Sure. Rub it in. Just keep piling it on.

The travel gods are against me right now.

Curse ’em.

And, oddly enough, look what little Miss Nichol sent me!

Oh the irony of it all!!!

Salt anyone? :)

love it.

love the combinations of all the different kits. love the striped paper she used to cut with. love the signage.

just love.

For Nichol:

One of the things that makes me happiest is traveling. Whether it be as a family or just my husband and I, I love to visit new places or even old favorites. As my husband and I prepare to go on a little weekend away here in a couple weeks, it’s gotten me excited for the pictures I will no doubt be taking and it reminded me to get finishing scrapping last fall’s little jaunt down the Pacific Coast. I absolutely love how Kerri’s photo templates make fitting several photos on a layout so simple and easy. Travel photos + photo templates = happiness!




I also wanted to say thank you so much for al the birthday wishes! You guys are so danged sweet!

Caroline? How was that piece of cake? ;)

Cathy…totally understand the two tuitions for college!

Denise…hope you had a lovely birthday yesterday. September is a great month. :)

Nancy, the stack of packages come from the T+T Christmas.

I had a lovely day. My bestie Kristy picked me up at “9:16” to get me for breakfast. We won’t talk about the ‘yellow-ish’ lights she went through to get there on time. lol Did a little window shopping and saw a movie. Had dinner with hubby (mine, not hers). Saturday was a beautiful day–72 degrees for the high and a skiff of snow on mountain tops. Soooo felt like fall! We won’t talk about the BYU-Utah game. Invited Dan’s parents over for dinner Sunday–for our birthdays. ;) And yesterday our neighborhood had a brunch, which also happened to be scheduled the same day as our little friends birthday lunch–Lisa Bearnson, Kristy Banks, and Vivian Grothe. Loni Stevens wasn’t able to make it. I think the five of us need to get together more often then every four months or so. ;) Love those girls.

Anyway, I think yesterday was the end of my celebratory ‘week’.

The princess now needs to get back to work, I guess.

reality . . . ;)

    I sooo have to agree with Nichol about the photo templates! Just love them. And it does not hamper creativity at all. Just wish I was smarter at using all the yummy dies in such creative ways. I just love your design team.

      GIRL! Don’t taunt me that way! I looooove Scotland…you know I do! :)

      And Dolly, sorry you haven’t gotten a vaca for a while either. No fun. We haven’t had one for a couple years now either. And comin’ from a travel-crazed family (it doesn’t even have to be any place fancy), it’s been torture. :)
