Single! Well, for this Weekend...

So, Steve is camping with the guys this weekend. I am single, for a few days. Can you believe that he would go away on National Scrapbooking Day? I am going to try to squeeze in as much scrapping as possible, but the two wild ones are running around...This is a layout that I made for the HOF contest. It was for the assignment on color. The challenge was to use color to convey an emotion or mood. It is pretty obvious here that I used red and pink! The journaling here is pretty raw. I think I learned a long time ago to shatter all the illusions of marriage and be real about it. It took some tough lessons to get me there, but I got it. So Steve & I try to live in the moment and the reality of things. It would be unrealistic to have all soap opera layouts of the two of us. This one is an honest look at us! And in the end, it is about how much we love each other.

Journaling: On my way home from work one day, I saw your truck on the road ahead of me. Thinking of you, I got that goofy smile-it was such a natural reaction. It is a moment that I remember often. I am fully aware that our relationship has its flaws. Our negative and recurring dynamic repeats itself & we have rough times. Yet, I still get that smile & take comfort in the fact you still get it too. As long as we have that, we have love!

By the way, ScrapStreet is holding their NSD activities all weekend. There will be great prizes and awesome challenges. My first challenge for them will be posted for tonight! Come and check it out!
