A Note from Diane

With the theme this month I thought it would be fun to reflect on where I've been since I was a little girl and what I wish I would have done a little differently along the way. I hope this layout will give future generations a better idea of what I find important.

The journaling pulls out from the envelope and reads:
Looking back I never knew that shy little girl in the picture (me) would…grow up and move so far from home, marry a boy she met in the 6th grade, get to work for an airline and do cool stuff, be a creative soul, have a family and group of friends that support me, have it so good!
Looking back I wish I would have…taken more chances, had more confidence at an earlier age, didn't worry quite so much about what others thought of me!

September Fun Fact

When I was a little girl, my parents took us on two week long summer vacations by car. It brings back fond memories for me and is probably why I love road trips so much!
