I've missed you

I think its funny, how even though I do not know WHO reads my blogs...I still feel very connected to you.  The feedback I do receive has been so much fun , and learning about how determination can move mountains moves me as well:)  Thanks for all that you do!

This morning, I want to focus on the future.  Sure, looking back at past photos and memories can be wonderful but not for everyone.  There can be pain, loss, struggles and hardships, disconnect and more.  I want to respect the fact that not everyone has enjoyed the past and chooses to move on with a smile instead. I am introducing a new part of my business which I am calling "Celebrating the future".

Encouraging others is something I love to do , and with goals and dreams in place we can move on to those together.  Achievements, celebrations, events and more are just a start to how this idea of making more memories, NEW memories has come about. 

Ask yourself one simple question...what are you looking forward to remembering?  Might there be a new grandbaby coming soon?  A move to a first home?  Graduations?  How about summer family time?  It can be simple, such as baking cookies with a neighbor or gathering with friends for ice cream in  the summertime.  These ARE memories, they just have not happened yet.  But looking foward to them can be planning to remember!  Focusing on the future memories is powerful and can really enhance your days.  THESE are the  memories I would love to help you remember, not just the ones in the past.  Plan for future memories, and be ready to look back on them with wonderful thoughts! 

Take lots of pictures, and if you cant...grab someone to do that part for you!  Take everyday photos of the things in your life to remember.  And create memories each and every day!  Celebrate life.

Professional results

My little boy is growing up!  Yes, thats right...Mikey is graduating from High School in just two short weeks.  I am excited, but as a Mom looking back with smiles.  He is a GREAT kid I am super proud of.

Just two weeks ago, a good friend Joy Augeson took his senior photos and boy did he shine!  How I choose to showcase these professional photos looks awesome in predesigned pages from Creative Memories.  I picked the page, dragged in the photos and added text where it said to click and do that.

Surround yourself with a smile

What inspires you to smile?  Friends...Family...shiny new toys?  Whatever it is, celebrate it!  I was so blessed to have two special friends visit us for the past few days.  We had a blast yesterday as I hosted a party featuring Heathers buttons and the jewelry she makes.  Here is a digital page I made today in less than 5 minutes using the STORYBOOK CREATOR software and of course, a predesigned page for speed!

So I ask again, what do you want to celebrate?  And how are you going to showcase that?  Let me help!  Graduation, weddings, family and friends, businesses, personal growth, sharing ideas?  Surround yourself with things that make you smile:)
