A Note from Melissa

As a huge fan of journaling spots, I was immediately drawn to Autumn's layout when I spotted it in the gallery. I love the way she uses a separate one for each item on her list. (Lists—there's another favorite.) I maintained the same basic design but reversed it, since I was facing the opposite way in my photo. I also changed the number to 9 in order to play up my pregnancy theme. (Or perhaps I should say “no more pregnancy” theme. Call me crazy, but I really will miss it. :)

May Fun Fact

I secretly dream of singing our national anthem at a sporting event.
