right now | december + january

I have to be honest...2013 is shaping up to be a very good year. Yes, I know that we're only 3 weeks in, but I can feel it...life is great and I'm open to embracing so many things. There really is nothing like feeling good and I want to hold on to this feeling for a long time.

I began documenting my right now moments back in December when I created this mini album for my Mini Albums with Monika feature at My Mind's Eye. I printed enough pages to last me for two years and will continue to add new MME collections as they debut.

  1. I love this project... It is very inspiring! Love the bit about eating all the cookies and not sharing (I have been know to hide things deep into the pantry;)

  2. Dreaming of fun in the sun - you can come to Sunny SA. We have a house at the beach and you can visit any time. Great weather nearly 365 days a year. Come on - would love to have you and your family. See U soon!
