First Post!

I have been thinking about blogging for awhile. Not that I necessarily have anything important to say! But I thought this would be a nice way to stay in touch with people that I dont always see or talk to. Like most things in my life, im sure this will be completely random! I am hoping to start with at least one post a week. We will see how it goes!

For this first post I really wanted to talk about something I have recently decided to do. I am a member of ClubCK and one of the new challenges this year is called Thanks Living. It is a year long challenge (more of a life changer really!) to change the way we think of things. It is about being thankful all year long instead of only on certain holidays. It is about being thankful for even the smallest things rather than just the huge ones we so often take for granted. But it is also a way for us to learn new things and put them into action. I am very much looking forward to sticking with this all year round and becoming more positive in my life about all the wonderful things that i have to be thankful for. I am hoping that each time i have a new post on this blog that i will remember to post a few things that i am thankful for and maybe get the few people who might read this to think of things that they are thankful for as well!

For this first month's challenge, i created a layout with a photo of my husband and I from my best friends wedding this summer. On the LO i have written a few of my Thanks Living Journal Entries. I am so thankful for my husband and all the wonderful things about him. The ones listed on the LO are only a few of the many wonderful things about him.

I really wanted the focal points of this LO to be the Title, Picture and the Journaling. Because of that i wanted to keep the LO fairly simple. A few different papers and design elements without too much embellishing. I embossed thankful on the top for the title to give a little bit of texture and interest and to showcase the true point of this LO.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look!
