Scraps [14]

I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.
While that happens the blog has taken a back seat, and I'm sorry.
Scraps is really special this week; it comes with some pretty neat news!

Way back in 2012 Fred and I took a trip the the Door.
This was our second or third time there together.

We walked around both Peninsula and White Fish during my spring break.
I marveled at the rock formations and, as always, the water.
It's all so beautiful up there!

I really like how this two page spread turned out!
I was able to use a bunch of photos without compromising the feel of the design.
This layout also allowed me to keep things minimal, but still journal what I needed to.

Fred and I will be making another visit there this weekend.
This visit will be a bit different though.
Fred now works at White Fish Dunes State Park.
This will be my first visit since he's taken the job, and I'm really excited!

I hope you have a great weekend.
Enjoy your adventure.

Monday Morning Card #62

I completely fell in love with this teal color when I first used it.
Whimsical moss.

Is that even a color?
I'll make it up-like I always do!

Monday Morning Card #61

This owl is still my favorite.
He's so cute with his little nose.

It's what everyone looks like now with the cold weather.
It's one of my favorite parts.

I went to Big Falls in my freshman year of college for a geological field trip.
After we went the first time I always wanted to come back on my own time.

The rapids, falls, rocks, and surrounding forest were breathe taking.
I was so glad I could take Fred with me.

After our adventures in Door County it was fun to be the know-it-all on this adventure.
If you ever get up to Eau Claire in the warmer months check out this park.
It's a real treat.

Thanks for a new year.
New inspiration.
New colors.
New challenges.
New ideas.

New beginnings.
New futures.
New starts.

Scraps [12]

You know the song from White Christmas "Sisters?"
Sometimes Claire and I are that song.
Really, we're more like the song when they guys sing it though.
Barely rehearsed with a lot of glaring looks.
I love it!

Claire wasn't always my friend, but I'm so glad we are now.
We get together every week to talk about life and the people in it.
It's my favorite day of the week.

I wouldn't be who I am today without my sister.
I love her.
