Month by Month: May
BE SENTIMENTAL. With Mother's Day and Memorial Day among its numbers, May is always a thoughtful month for me. It makes me want to stop and take note of relationships past and present, and it inspires me to focus on the relationships I want in the future.
This month's layout from my Month-by-Month Scrapbooking book features a single picture of my mom and me. Since we live in different states, we don't see each other as often as we'd like. That's why it's important to me to make sure to document the time we are able to spend together. The key word here is "together." Too often, my pictures during my mom's visits are of only her and my boys. I don't get in the picture. I'll do better!
