out of the comfort ZONE...



when i look at these two LOs i have made in the last couple of days - it is like i hardly recognize myself or style. could i have really made these? it makes me think about how i am changing, how my style is changing.

kind of on a related topic, i was at the hollister store a couple of months ago - i thought they had some cute surfer-ish clothes and i started to look around at the people shopping there. i suddenly realized that i could be some of these kiddos' parent! so i put away what i had in my hand and i haven't bought anything from there since.

but changing - it is all good. i have to embrace it. it is so easy to cling to the status quo. but that is how you get left behind (or you leave yourself behind). change is never easy. it is uncomfortable. it is what keeps you up at nights or wakes you up early or forces you to take a nap. but it is ALL good.

i definitely don't think that every LO i make will be the best ever but i see them is part of a path i can trace to show how far i have come.

i wonder what is next...

the layouts are awesome! I like the one with the KI papers a lot, it fits the theme of the photo perfectly! =)
