I really love looking through all of my Take Twelve layouts to see how much our lives have changed over the past few months. I know that once 2012 comes to an end, our family will truly cherish these memories.
This June 12 marks the our first month back in San Diego after a wonderful "sabbatical" in Newport, Rhode Island. Although Justin is gone on training (and eventually deployment immediately afterwards), having family and familiar surroundings around us has made the transition as smooth as it could possibly be.
This layout reflects the new daily routine with just me and Charlotte. None of it is particularly exciting but I think it's important to document our everyday moments - making the lunches, eating breakfast, going to work, playing after school, and the bedtime routine. While I know that my past few blog posts have been reflective and often sad in their tone, I wanted to focus on celebrating the new chapter in our life with bright and fun colors. The digital papers from Echo Park Sweet Day were perfect for this!
