It Takes Two

It takes two people to build a life and family together. And its just 2 more days until Easton comes home. WOO HOO! The countdown continues.

I made this one page layout last night. After cleaning from 10 am to 6:30 pm (I mean REALLY cleaning) I needed a serious creative break. So, this is what I came up with.

I fell in love with the sketch 96 at Got Sketch. I had to improvise a tiny bit because my main photo was vertical, not horizontal. But I think it turned out fine anyway. Feel free to click on any of the photos to see them larger.

I DIED when I found these photos as Kori and I were cleaning and organizing this week. This was Dan the Man's 10 year high school reunion. We had been married for five years at this point. WOW, were we skinny or what? This was many moons and many lbs. ago! I'll never forget this night. We had such a nice time and came home and were talking about how happy we were in our marriage and with our two children (Kori had just turned 4 and Easton was 1 1/2). We decided we wanted to have another one. One month later we were pregnant with Tannon. I can't believe that was 20 years ago. Where did the time and skinny bodies go? And now, here we are anticipating the return of our 21 year old son, Easton from his mission (Did I mention he gets home in 2 more days? Oh yeah. I did). At the age and point in our lives that we are in these photos, I would NEVER have imagined how quick this time would come.

What a great layout! My husband also graduated in 1980, only his OLDEST child is 10. Hope that makes you feel young. We'll be actively parenting for a LONG time, yet.
