Sometimes when I'm colouring the border on a new page, getting it ready to photograph, the joints in my knuckles will start to ache and I'll realize that I'm gripping the marker with ridiculously unnecessary force. Ditto for the pen on my pen tablet when I'm drawing new borders.
Sometimes when I hug the kids, I'll realize (or they'll tell me with a yelp) that I'm squeezing too hard.
Sometimes when I'm thinking about new prompts or searching for quotes, I'll realize that I'm clenching my teeth together so hard that my head is beginning to throb.
Holding on pretty tight over here. Not wanting any of it to slip away before I've had the chance to breathe it in, write it down, snap a quick shot, and give thanks for every moment, every smile, every kind word, every connection.
Love this place and so happy to be back with a new journal page. Now if I could only get it to sit still for a second . . .
There we go. Sort of.
You'll find the mid-July journal page here (border-free and waiting for your creative embellishments) and here (with a colour-free border, waiting for your colourful embellishments) and here (with a colourful border and still plenty of room for your creative extras).
Happy weekend, friends!
