Project Life 2017

"We take photos as a return ticket to moments otherwise gone."

This is my second year doing Project life, last year I complete a full year doing 6x8 layout albums in a monthly format.
This year I decided that I needed more room to be able to tell more stories, to be able to record our lives in more details. To remember no only the big things in life but also the small funny or hard moments.

I have loved being able to look back out our lives and remember simple things that we may have done one day or remember how cute Chris looked fallen asleep on the couch- I tend to take a few photos of him fallen asleep on the couch after work, he just looks so cute lol.

So let me share my first layout for the year.

Week 1: 1st-8th Jan 2017


We celebrated the new year with my brother in law and his wife, and my father in law. It was a nice relaxing night. At midnight we cheered to the new year and played with sparklers.

This week was a somewhat quiet week, I was still pretty sick, so there was a lot of Dr's appointments and resting. in all honest it was a very hard week being sick, I was able to finally find out, after a week and a half why I was so sick. Ended up being withdrawal symptoms from a medication change that they had done in December, my old medication as I Found out has some nasty withdraws.


On one of my good days, we were able to head down the coast to meet up with my sister and the rest of the Kokoda challenge team and their families for a post training BBQ. It was really good to catch up with Steph again- she did the challenge last year with Cass. And it was also good to be able to meet the two new team member husband and wife, Allen and Jenny. 
They are all really awesome nice people and great to be able to hang out and have a nice relaxing afternoon with them.

The week we also went to see Star Wars: Rouge One with John, Tim and Crystal. Chris & I didn't tell John that I had actually seen it already down in Hobart, but I was more than happy to see the movie again. I still can't believe that my husband has gotten me into Star Wars. Seeing that before we started dating I had never seen a since movie! Now well I even enjoy watching the cartoon series Rebels.

This week we also took down the Christmas decorations, which I hated. December was a very hard month for me I felt like it didn't really get to enjoy the month and do the normally Christmas things that I like to do like baking etc. But they had to come down, I didn't want to be the crazy couple in the apartment complex with their Christmas tree still up.

Also as you can also tell. Chris is excited about the next Star wars... he has already started to send me the countdowns!

So each week I like to include the same format of week title card, the "this week" card where I give a run down of things that also happened that week that I may not have photos for. And I also like to include the Gratitude card, making sure that each week I focus on the things that I am grateful for. with all the negative things happening with my health I need to focus on the positives, as hard as that can be this gives the a good reason to really focus.

I will be sharing Week 2 with you soon :)
