Flowers & Journal Pages!

Today, our family received the most beautiful flowers from my niece, for Christmas. I love it that she does this for us and look how cute the vase is, too! Thank you Jackie~!

I also got some soul journal pages done! First, the Web of Love. We were prompted to think of how we weave our own lives....the good and the bad, and to think of how it's all inter-connected and how the way we our lives effects others. I began with titles... Wife, Mom, Step-Mom, daughter, sister, etc.... and then added other descriptions from there. I'm happy with the "appearance" of the page, but I could have dove deeper into my choice of words in the web.

And also Trust the journey....... I like this page! The background started with some circles and swirls, just like we often feel our personal journeys through life feel. I picked several quotes that spoke to me, and added the strips to the page, and a flower to soften it all up a little. I'm glad I have this page to look back at and remind myself, that the sometimes rough journey helps my growth. If I don't grow... I just die. Right?
