project life // week five.

Dated: January 27 - February 2. This is the fifth week of project life and I'm still so happy to sit down and document the little things in life every week.What I did this week: Back to work after California, which was brutal in terms of weather. It snowed while we were gone twice and the climate change really hit me hard. I mentioned this last week as well, but I'm so moving to California, and I feel the urge growing more and more every single day. I started a new project, which will be up on the blog in the first week of March, and I took a photo shoot of my puppy, Lucas. I also made grapefruit margaritas for a girls' night out; recipe will be up soon!About this spread: I went back to using just the design A pages for this week, but I love the look of last week's spread with a bit of variation, so I am considering trying another 12x12 design in the future. This is a pretty basic, everyday moments type of spread, which I kept simple with only a few embellishments and some journaling.Thoughts, concerns + details: I decided that since it is the end of the month that I would record January's best moments (see below). I liked doing this because I feel like it made me truly reflect on the month and include a few things about January that may not have appeared in the album. I also used a polaroid this week of me and my best friend, Meagan, and used a five w's card from the seafoam kit to journal about the photo in a different way. I used a studio pebbles card and journaled around it's edge a little bit more to spruce it up, and as usual, journaled right on photos (with an amazing new marker; listed below).
