My Heart is Full

Right now, my heart is full. Full of excitement, gratitude, worry, a little fear, anxiousness...the list goes on. Luckily this weekend I had a bit of time to reconnect back to a place where I can just relax, enjoy, and be in the moment. Ahhh...scrapbooking. Can anyone else relate? I actually have not had a chance for some time now to just play around, as stuff was packed away, and then unpacked...and then find that was another issue! However, I could definitly tell that I needed some time to just get back to doing what I love. It is amazing how awesome it can make you feel when you just take a little moment to do what you love. It really felt great. So here is what I came up with. A layout documenting a time, where Matt and I had officially jumped with both feet in, turned our next page and began the next phase of our journey. I remember this moment exactly. How I was feeling, how we were feeling together...the way our old house had started to look as bits and pieces had begun their way back into boxes. What made our home, home was now slowly being packed away. Even though it seems like ages ago, it really has only been over a month. Sometimes I look at where I was in September and where I am now in December, and it literally boggles my mind. So many things have changed. It is so overwhelming. But of course, all in a good way. I am trusting in that. Photobucket I have also been thinking alot about gratitude. How important it is to be grateful and recognize all of the amazing things one is blessed with. I have always wanted a place to jot down thoughts, clippings, photos etc. and the other day I decided to make myself a little Gratitude scrapbook/journal. And thanks to House of 3, and their awesome Gratitude printables, this is what I was able to come up with. I have already started placing some of my favorite quotes, phrases, emails etc. in it along with some photos and it is really turning out to be the cutest little book. This will definitly be an ongoing project, a place where I can continually add things here and there, but I like the fact of always having a "home" for things in my life that I want to recognize, document and celebrate.

Love your post. And love everything you've been doing!! It's so good to remember all the things we can be thankful for...and I love how you're even including emails in your little book! Fun idea. Change can happen so quickly...but like you said a lot of it is for the better.
