week in the life 2014 : tuesday in the album / kapachino

Hi there! Just want to quickly share my layouts for Tuesday of the week in the life album I have in progress. This one came together faster than Monday since I knew what I was going for.

I’m starting every day with a full page photo with date stamped on the gold foil labels. I also plan to do a rundown of my meals on this narrow 3×8 page for each day.

On the back of this one I wrote out a few Meredith quotes. The right side is some morning photos.

The below layout encompasses the bulk of my day. Work (with pumping) and running on the treadmill after. It’s funny because I really can’t document much of what I spend most of my time on – work – because of patient privacy reasons. My job is super important to me and very fulfilling, but almost all of my memory keeping is family-focused and that’s okay.

I loved this little photo of me picking up Liam from daycare. He always clings to me as we walk out to the car and I usually spend a few extra moments hugging him before putting him in the car seat (which he hates).

On the last page of the spread I wrote my gratitude list and included a couple of evening photos. The one of our family dinner is a favorite. Then again I wrote out all the happenings of the day.

Slowly this album is coming together and I am really enjoying the process!

link roundup / 23

January 22, 2015

I’ve been somewhat sick this week and am running behind on things, so today I’m sharing some stuff I found around the internet. None of it is super recent but I liked it all enough to share. Enjoy! >I want to get my home to a place where even the messes are beautiful (see above photo by Amy Johnson; also read more of her beautiful blog). >Keeping this article in mind for the time when I need to start convincing my husband to have a third baby. ;) >I’m in love with this photo series. My parents always, always walk us to the car when we leave their house, and my mom always stands on the sidewalk waving until she can’t…

race recap : 2015 aramco houston half marathon

January 20, 2015

This past weekend was so crazy for me. It was Liam’s first birthday (and his party, which I will share more about soon) and my first half marathon. In addition I had a work dinner to attend and my niece’s 3rd birthday party, so all in all we had very little time at home. I overextended myself because I ended up catching a stomach bug on Sunday night, but thankfully the rest of the weekend went fairly well. Today I just want to recap how the race went! Start time was 7:00 a.m. so my friends picked me up at 5:00 a.m. We got to the convention center in plenty of time with no stress and just got ourselves ready,…

week in the life 2014 : monday in the album

January 14, 2015

Well two and a half months later and I’m finally putting together this album! Before I share more I have a few thoughts: >I love this project and definitely want to participate each year. I bought and used the kit, but had to put together my own album since they had sold out. This year I’m pretty sure I’m going to buy all of Ali’s kits and albums because I don’t have a huge stash of my own, I love her style, and having it on hand really helps me get it done. >I do hope that the official week in 2015 will be earlier in the year, because this was right before the holidays and there was just no…

2015 reading plans and goals

January 12, 2015

I feel like I’ve been talking a lot about plans and goals lately. I guess that’s normal around this time of year, so just call me cliché! I’m not done yet, either, so I hope you like this kind of thing. (Personally, I could read about other people’s goals and plans alllll day long, ha.) I want to read more this year. Last year I read 20 books which was a huge drop for me. Obviously it was a year of adjustment and that’s fine, but I’d still like to read more. I intend to do monthly book reports this year and hopefully there will be at least three books on each one. Here’s what I’m thinking: Reading challenge: First of…
