hello hello & happy monday!
i am feeling about a million times better than i have in a while. i think a lot of that is thanks to a low-stress weekend with my extra special visitor…
we were home all weekend and got to spend lots of time with our mom and other family, too. it was perfect.
today i am definitely back to reality (and ridiculous amounts of soul-crushing stress…), but i would like to delay that for another 15 minutes and share my latest project life spread with you all!
this layout is from monday, october 1-sunday, october 7.
i didn’t have a whole lot of photos from this week to choose from (thanks to doing not much other than sitting at my computer & working…), but i like it!
there are definitely every-day moments that are worth capturing, even on an uneventful week.
for the date card, i stamped a plain sheet of cardstock (from the 4×6 solid cards – clementine edition) and then stamped the date on a circle cut out of craft paper. simple simple!
i also added my october goals from my blog post – it seemed appropriate in the october 1 layout.
i did one other fun “new” thing this week and used one of the free quote card downloads from becky’s site.
i loved this “hello everyday life” card and thought it fit well in this week.
i also had to use this quote this week.
we love the decemberists and as soon as i heard this song on pandora, i printed the quote out!
the other side of the layout is a little less exciting for me.
i used two journaling cards as well as another quote print-out. i printed this for one of the small frames in our office and accidentally made the margins too small. i didn’t want to waste it, so into the album it went!
this page also got a photo of our tasty csa cherry tomatoes, a picture of capone, and one of me with my new scarf!
this was my 4th week and i am hooked even more each layout!
especially right now, when i have so much on my plate, this is the perfect fun thing to squeeze into my couple hours of me-time each week.

who would you pick to be your extra special visitor if you could fly someone in for a visit right now?
obviously, i’d bring my sister back! i can never get enough time with her.
