Where Have You Been?

I’ve been poked on Facebook with friends asking, “Where have you been?” I think my head has finally stopped spinning after an incredible and crazy month of July. My husband and I packed up our four kids and took a camping road trip out to Yellowstone National Park. The week before we left was as crazy and insane as the actual trip. The trip was amazing, and overall it went better than I imagined. The biggest surprise of the trip was getting my Manuscript re-read back from my editor. I was told to expect an additional two week delay to the already several month timeline. It was a shock to see it land in my email while we were in the Black Hills, SD. Needless to say, my manuscript became my main focus when we did get home. So there was an unanticipated time lapse in returning my life to a normal routine.

*Anyway* Let me share one of the fun things I did on the road. I took a medium Close To My Heart storage box and filled it with a Crush Book, some Project Life cards, Washi Tape, My tube of Ranger Distress Markers, Glue Dots, and an Old Creative Memories Trimmer. I tucked this box of fun among our camping gear and used it journaling about our road trip. I used post cards, pamphlets, and stickers I found in gift shops or stores along our way.

Here are a few samples of pages I made:      

This was a fun way to journal our trip. I’m happy to be home, and even happier to settling back into life as usual.
