Welcome to the end of August...
did I just say that out loud???
Big sigh...because I had such a great time with my Memory Planner this past month.

For me a theme is always the way to go for the numbered list on the first page. And I just went with the quotes that Heidi designed on the page...Fill Your Days With Laughter...
so my list is #onelittlethingeveryday that would make me laugh.
O.K...ignore the day that is missing...because let's be honest...some days are just relentless-no- laughing-matter kind of days.

Interactive pieces added to the pages add a lot of interest. Some of my notes I prefer not to have out there for all to see so easily. So I sort of cover them up. But I will tell you, under the 'smiles are free' free printable from Heidi I  share my heart as to why laughter needed to be a theme for the month. Shared why things had seemed so hard. Who knew this little planner would also serve as a cathartic to emotions that needed to be worked out. Oh how I have loved this planner this year.

The top edge is attached and my thoughts hidden underneath. Love.

The page protector side is all kinds of fun for me. Celebrated that baby boy's 4th birthday this month. Oh how I love summer birthdays. We had so much fun. Lots of laughter and celebrating and being together. You can catch a peek with the QR if you are interested. It's my heart.

Left one pocket open so our group pic could be seen from the other page. Framed that baby up with a Hello Today frame. Added another free printable to a pocket. The die cut heart paper is from the JoAnn collection. And I loved the calligraphy of Anchor and Ink pinning the words of Micah 6:8 from the She Reads Truth Bible study earlier in the month. That was a must have.

The upper left photo of my youngest daughter starting a new school. Will show in a bit how I made that a mini accordion and added additional photos.

A business card for the local ambassador of Noonday Collection. And another free printable with some important events listed for the month rounds out the backside of the pocket pages.

I loved these photos with her and all that this new beginning for her entailed.

Added a few extra pages to the binding. So thrilled by that group photo of family and friends that celebrated the life of Sawyer with us.

How great is this space to simply add this and that. All the little things that make up my life. All 8 months of this year in one place. All the one little things everyday. I am so thankful for this process.

So here is to a new month. A new season. And continuing to capture the blur every. single. day.

Now go. and create.
