A real joy of Project Life is that you can do what you can, when you have the time. Something documented is so much better than nothing at all. It is so easy to go back in time when you feel the urge to do so, and cover a memory in more depth.
Well, I had the urge to jump back in time.
I had not done anything special with our family pictures that I had taken for our 2012 Christmas card. I put my favorite family shot in our 2012 Project Life album (Week 42) and moved on. I was happy I had that, but knew that I could easy come back to that day if and when I felt the need to add a few more of my favorite shots.
I am so happy I saved this little memory until now. Jumping back only a year and a half ago in time, made me smile to see how much has changed in our little family. With the new addition of a lucky number 5, it made me think how our Christmas cards will never be like this again. There will no longer just be the 4 of us, but 5.
I know I am not good with getting my feelings out on to paper and into words. I just know that it was such a ride to go back in time looking and playing with these pictures again.
Yep, we are no longer this family of 4.
We are now a family of 5.
... and I am going to get the chance to change up our usual positions to make room for one more.
This makes me smile.
I am blessed.
