In My Happy Place

7 Jul

In between packing and organizing and tying up loose ends on the moving front, I have been squeezing in as many trips as possible to Disneyland. So far I’ve been twice in less than a week, which just might be my personal record. Coincidentally, my annual pass expires the same week I am moving, so I am trying to milk that baby for all it’s overpriced but oh-so-wonderful worth! Here are some of the highlights:

I keep feeling an overwhelming mixture of sheer excitement and sheer panic over this move. The panic usually sets in when I’m trying to sleep and I start running through the seemingly insurmountable list of things I have to get done. The excitement sets in as soon as I wake up or read home design blogs or shop for apartment wares or think about how much I am truly looking forward to starting my new job or think about how insanely awesome it will be to begin this new adventure. So far the excitement is winning out over the panic by a landslide. And I intend to keep it that way.

I also intend to hit up the Land at least one more time 🙂

Happy Thursday

18 Mar

So as it turns out, this week has been quite good.

First off, I managed to track down this month’s issue of Creating Keepsakes and was psyched to see what was inside:

EEEEEEEEE!!! You would not believe how excited I was! And still am! I submitted it, along with a few other layouts, back in November, not anticipating it would ever be chosen. But when it was, I was blissfully surprised! Waiting to see it actually come to fruition has been the hardest part! I have a few more layouts that will be published in the coming months and I’m feeling super grateful for this funny little hobby called scrapbooking…

This past Saturday was my mom’s birthday, so the two of us spent some time in one of our favorite cities: Pasadena. I would pack up and move there in an INSTANT! Something about it really resonates with me. Maybe it’s because of the proximity to Dots Cupcakes. Quite possibly it’s because of the cupcakes:)

Then on Sunday, John and I woke up early so we could get breakfast at Disneyland! It turned out to be a gorgeous spring-y day and I got to wear my new giant hat!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
