Month 5 of my Project Life for 2016. Creating a two-page layout of our month is working out swimmingly. Overall, it isn't too taxing on time constraints and I still am able to cover the broad highlights of the month documenting most of the 'big stuff' of life.
I am still creating simple and fairly clean pages with little embellishments but words on the page. Photos + Words and a touch of cohesiveness through digital products by Paislee Press, One Little Bird, Ali Edwards, and the 12 x 12 templates are Cathy Zielske.
It was a fairly busy month:
I read 7 new books in the month of April. I am enjoying this endeavor greatly and have found some wonderful reads.
I began my 50 States 50 Recipes project with Alabama White Gold BBQ Sauce with Grilled Chicken. It was delicious.
A Journey Build Low Country Boil. Jeff and I attended a Friday evening Journey Build dinner where all the builders gathered to receive their team assignments and teams. Each team is responsible for project management from start to finish. It is a great way for the Worship Arts ministry to give their Journey Build volunteers ownership of the projects and work that need done. It was a great evening of fellowship, amazing food, delightful table decorations. I got to catch up with a dear sweet friend...it was so good...and we had excellent conversation at our dinner table.
One weekend we headed south to my Mom's for our annual Spring clean-up. Mom lives on an acre of land and each year all of us kids, and this year a slew of grandkids showed up, to clean up the property and the house. It was hard work but good camaraderie.
We gifted a neighbor couple a date night (with money envelope) and kid sitting. We gave them 6 hours and Jeff, John, and Jarrod had a ball! It was a great afternoon and evening.
We celebrated Joan's birthday at Red Lobster and she enjoyed receiving her gift.
The boys and I began a new Bible study, Children of the Day by Beth Moore.
Jeff and I, on the last day of the month headed to Landrum, South Carolina and the Red Horse Inn for an early anniversary weekend (separate post soon!).
