It was a good day.
It was a painful day.
Even through the pain we could celebrate the season.
Jeff went alone to his company Christmas party. The company held their party on the Savannah River Queen - a floating restaurant. He had a really good time. He is well liked within his company so going was a nice change of busy pace.
I stayed home because my mouth was in pain. It began earlier in the day and didn't let up until after he left for the party. Up until then we'd had a good morning. Jeff and I shared a hearty breakfast and I read this days advent reading from The Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp.
For the left half of the two-page 6 x 8 spread I kept it seriously simple and used a Paislee Press template. I did enlarge the photo and word art to fill more of the white space (as white space is difficult for me to handle).
I'm thrilled with the right side of the pages, using mostly One Little Bird journal cards and an AE Merry and Bright stamp and a photo of the River Queen (as he was departing).
