9 of 09

So I had intended to do several days worth of "best of 09" type posts, but it hasn't happened. I've been to busy enjoying my last week of the decade and not worrying about the blog. So, here it is, one giant recap post.

First up, top 9 scrappy pages of 09. While there are a few other pages I really love, as I was narrowing down my top choices, I realized most of my favorite pages are pages about me. Not sure what that means. Maybe, after a rough 08, I was focused on making 09 better for me and did a lot of self talk. Maybe I just do more meaningful pages when they are pieces of me...I don't know. Anyway, I decided to make the 9 of 09 all pages about me:











Next up, favorite 9 favorite photos of 09. One thing I realized while looking through last year's photos is that I absolutely do not take enough photos. Especially everyday photos. For someone who loves to scrap the everyday moments, I certainly do not capture enough of them on film.

1. He really does smile:


2. A sister photo shoot in the mirror


3. Our Christmas card photo taken in Chicago in August


4. The way things really are between the two of us


5. My girls


6. Me and Jess, taken by Nicole


7. Silly shadow photo that took forever to capture right.


8. I was hoping for a good photo of my parents, but sadly I have none from this year. I do love this in the moment photo of my mom and I at Kellie's birthday dinner


9. Halloween fun. The first Halloween Jessie and I have spent together in 10 years!


Good bye 2009!

I had missed some of those layouts! Especially lovin' the Me layout - the way you used the alphas was brilliant! And what a great set of photos...and by the way, I now have Straight No Chaser downloaded from iTunes - yeah, all your fault. But love their version of I'm Yours.
