Before we talk about today's W, I just want to say THANK YOU. It's been fun to share this week with you, and I've gotten so many great ideas from your comments. Sometimes it just takes a different perspective to get the creative juices flowing!
So...our fifth and final W word....WHY. I love this one. It's so inquisitive. It's about finding answers and thinking things through. It can be answered definitively, or simply with "I don't know." It can be about deep thoughts or silly observations. It can both explain and persuade (speech geek alert...I kicked butt in oratory). It's the classic essay follow up (if you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be, and why?). And it's just so simple...
*WHY I scrapbook...
*WHY I love you
*WHY I chose you
*WHY I'll always believe in you
*WHY you make me laugh
*WHY you made that face
*WHY, why, why? (fill in all the why questions that your preschooler asks you!)
*WHY? Because I said so.
*WHY this makes me happy (and *this* can be anything!)
*WHY I need coffee (make a list of everything you need to accomplish in a day. then pour yourself another cup!)
I'm going to leave you with one of my all-time favorite layouts. It's quite simple...no fancy techniques going on here. It's a note to my daughter about the reason for some of the choices that I've made. The last line of journaling says it all..."So, if you ever question why, just know that YOU are the reason. I love you."
