Looking Back

With a new computer comes all the joys of reinstalling all your software. More of a hassle than I joy I should say. I did however, have some fun backing up and reloading some older digital photos. Looking back through them made me nostalgic and more than a little shocked at how quickly time is passing by.

Over the weekend we had some exciting news. My son proposed to his girlfriend in a hot air balloon Saturday night. We are so happy for them and looking forward to their big day. But I have to ask… How can I be old enough to be a mother-in-law?!

Here’s a photo of their hands that I snapped on Saturday night…

Flashback now seven years to the summer my youngest was born. It was a busy crazy summer and I was so thankful for my daughter’s help with her little brothers. Her love for them hasn’t changed and she has the biggest heart. Today’s layout is about that. She doesn’t care for the photos but I think she was so cute in that red surfboard tshirt and her mirrored sunglasses. So glad I found the photos.


Today’s layout was created for the Lily Bee Blog sketch challenge. It’s a wonderful sketch by Cindy Liebel and you can join us for more details here.

Quick Tip: It’s never too late to go back and scrapbook those older memories.

Happy Monday!
