A Note from Katie
This layout is all about me on 12/12/12. I took this photo at exactly 12:12pm and knew that I wanted to use it in my note to me layout. I love the touch of sparkle American Crafts POW papers and the sequins add, and it complemented my theme of joy.
On this day, December 12, 2012, I will choose joy. I will choose joy because I have two little girls and a husband that I love. Because I know where I have come from and where I am going. Because I am finding balance. Because I finally know what I want to be when I grow up. Because I am realizing how quickly this one life will go. Because I am only in control of myself. And I choose joy.
January Fun Fact
I love snow for Christmas. But after Christmas, I’d be perfectly happy if it was 70 and sunny everyday. Too bad for me, though, because I live in the great white tundra that is Michigan, where winter lasts half the year!
