It’s my 30th birthday year. As part of my celebrations, I thought I would take my birthday month to reflect on my life. To help, I am using some of my scrapbooked pages to illustrate my life. For each year, I’ve chosen a few pages to highlight that year. I hope you enjoy my look back as much as I do.
2002: Big changes abound…
Page 1: My mom got married. It was a small ceremony attended by close family and friends. And then she held a smallish reception with cake and snacks. I loved that myself my two new stepbrothers were the sole attendants and well wore blue-gray clothing.
Page 2: Annika was growing up. Six months already. She lived (and still lives) in Chicago, but we had a great time playing at a summer visit.
Page 3: On Christmas Day, my Great Grandma Helen celebrated her 95th birthday. We held a huge party at her retirement home. I just loved her cakes: one showing a pic of her now and one showing a pic of her as a little girl. (Btw… You can’t tell because there are no pictures, but I was 6 months pregnant at the party)
Page 4: Christmas with family. Some great pics of Annika, Cole, and Mallory.
