So I scrapbook to capture all the fun and sentimental moments in life. Most of my pages communicate how happy I am and how blessed I feel. But I also believe that scrapbooking can be an outlet. A way to explore my feelings. I think we should scrap about our fears, our disappointments, and our moments of sadness. Let's keep in real. I created this layout after being inspired by the Creative Therapy Catalyst #10. The prompt was to create something about someone you miss. I scrapped about Steve and I-the couple we were before we had kids. The journaling speaks for itself.
It reads: Sometimes I really miss the carefree me & you, how we were before kids. I love those babies more than life itself & know that they are the product of our love for each other. I wouldn't trade being their parents. But I do miss how easy it was between us before our life became stressful & demanding. We give so much to them that we sometimes don't have much for each other. I miss long hikes & going on vacation, random naps on the weekend on the couch. That feeling that I can sense you anywhere. I've been thinking & just wanted to say that I really love you & the life, the amazing life, we've made. But sometimes I miss just you & me-"us". Sometimes...
Does anyone else feel this way too sometimes?
