An oldie but a goodie... December Daily 2011
In November, I reminded myself just how much I love seeing how much the boys have grown...in something tangible, not on Facebook or online...so I committed to doing the December Daily for our second December together. As last year's December was a bit more "exciting" than anticipated with Alexander's early arrival...I was excited to refocus and spend a few minutes each day documenting what is happening.
My last full December Daily was in 2010...when we had just one Wee Ski (here are a bunch of pages from it). I looked at my 2011 files on my hard drive, and realized that I had about 10 pages to finish...and I decided to do just that. I took my first "free" evening in weeks (since my time at my computer has been nonstop editing and designing for Finian Road)...and made this just for me.
I sent it to Shutterfly, and last night the familiar orange box showed up on my doorstep.
AND I LOVE IT.
They offer lay-flat pages and I upgraded again to the padded cover, and the boys were thrilled to go through things, page by page. They were pretty confused by how it was John Paul as the baby and not Alexander...so maybe by 2015, I will have last year's done too. :) I had read the quote "perfection is the enemy of completion"...and it couldn't be more true than here. I chose to not worry about missing a day or detail. I just wanted to have it in hand. I AM SO GLAD I DID.
This should be a link to the full album.
It's now a little "blast from the past"! :)
