A Note from Valerie
I planned this layout in Silhouette Studio, loaded an 8.5 x 11 sheet into my Silhouette SD to cut out the title and phrase and built the layout around those two elements. I threw around the idea of adding photos, but decided to leave them out this time and make the layout completely about the journaling.

Being a mom is such an incredible blessing! How lucky am I to have one super amazing crazy smart little boy!? And to have gotten the chance to love the sweetest set of newborn twins this year. It was so bittersweet. Sometimes I think I'm crazy for thinking it after such a heartbreaking experience, but I can't wait to do it again.

January Fun Fact
I'm so proud of my mom. She lost almost 70 pounds last year! Way to go, mom!
