Taking Me Back

I feel like its been ages since I sat down and scrapped our pictures.

I can't live like that. I was tired, burned out and cranky from not taking the time to do the things that I love.

Hopefully, this is the first of many pages to get done this week! I'm embracing the "just get it scrapped" mentality, so the page is far from perfect, but it's done. And I personally think it conveys the message I want it to.


text reads: It’s been really cold in Utah lately. I normally can’t stand the cold. My toes are always frozen. This picture was taken on a cold April day. I was angry all morning because it didn’t feel like spring time and I was ready for some sunshine. The clouds were upsetting me and making me wonder if Utah even remembered what warm felt like. As I walked out to the car, the wind bit my nose a little bit and it took me straight back to when C and I first got engaged. I was riding in the beamer with the top down, amazed at the fact that this amazing man wanted me. I was alive, excited, anxious to see him. I felt on top of the world. I felt beautiful. I remembered what it was like to be all lit up inside. Suddenly my day was just beginning, I knew I was adored. The air was excited. It’s funny that the weather I was so angry with brought me the most cherished memory I have. The beginning of me and C. The beginning of my life. Our life together. I wish I could bottle this feeling.
