My day today was a whirlwind of travel and exploring. Two things I LOVE! Having not been to the DC area before, I must say I'm pleasantly surprised with what I've seen. I'm in Old Town Alexandria, which is quaint, cute and full of unique shops and eateries. Just today, I fulfilled my cravings for fried pickles (hard to come by in AZ) and tasted my first Guinness cupcake -- a recipe I must learn myself. Amazingly good!
Since my body is accustom to AZ time, I'm having a hard time fall asleep, so I thought I'd put together a post on the pages I created to document the memories of my birthday last month. In all, I ended up creating three layouts, each using some amazing new (and new-ish) kits from JessicaSprague.com (credits below each layout).
35 | This was a quick and simple page, created to document the memories of my 35th birthday on June 22. I'm quite happy with the way this one turned out. It's simple and sweet, with emphasis on the photo (taken by Nate, edited by me) and the journaling, which I copied from my blog post here.
GOT YA! | Sneaking in a quick kiss while Nate and I attempted some self portraits after my birthday dinner. I love the expression on Nate's face. He's such a cutie!
SODA STREAM | This layout highlights my favorite birthday gift from this year...a Soda Stream! I'm not a soda (pop) drinker, but I do love my bubbly water. Now, I can have club soda anytime! I'm so happy to finally be able to reduce the amount of plastic bottles in our recycling bin (and not have to lug home liters of soda from the store). All of the papers used on the layout are by Carina Gardner and are new in store Monday 7/18!
And that my friends, is my birthday documented! I hope you all have a great week :)
