I haven't shared any of my Project Life pages since the beginning of March, so I thought I'd take a moment to update on how it's going. Mostly for my own record-keeping. For me, it's a way to make sure the simple every-day things are accounted for. Sure, we all remember the major events in our lives, but the little things are important, too. So truthfully, all of this will be completely boring to anyone reading this. But it's what makes me me and my life my life.
Here's a quick rewind of Weeks 7-37:
Week 7: Valentine's Day. My SIL's bday. Lunch with my other SIL near Delores Park. Bay Bridge Lights were turned on.
