I spent a lot of time traveling in September, so when October came along I was ready to slow down a bit and just enjoy life. I’m happy to say that I was able to do just that. My scrapbook memories for October includes lots of fun events and times with friends and family.
The month started off with Homecoming festivities in my hometown. Go Knights! I even got to “crash” a friend’s class reunion as the official “photographer”. This was actually lots of fun since I know a lot of people in that class . . . most who I haven’t had a chance to see since high school.
One big October event was the beginning of construction for my new studio at home. It will serve a lot of purposes for me and my creative endeavors . . . scrapbooking . . . building dollhouses . . . etc. I’ve been planning it for a long time so it is super exciting to get started!
In the midst of all my travel for work I had a chance to decorated my front porch for the fall. This was a first in the 3 years I’ve lived in Kansas City, so I was pretty happy I made time to get it done.
Speaking of Kansas City . . . I got to enjoy the city’s excitement to be playing in the World Series for the first time in 29 years. I’m spoiled being from the St. Louis area and being a Cardinal’s fan . . . 29 years would be a long dry spell.
October also marks my first guest blogging opportunity at VisitGalena.org/blog with my post about my Galena Girls Weekend. Next year I hope to enjoy Halloween with friends a little more . . . we were a little too busy seeing family and working on the studio this year.
I’ve had lots of people ask me why I bother printing out my photos and recording memories in a scrapbook. I really believe it’s important to document life. If you only post pictures on Facebook, but never print them out, your children and grandchildren may never get a chance to see them and know who you were and what your life was like.
Do you agree? Do you print and save a few memories to share with family or friends? Do you have other ways your record your memories? I would love to hear your ideas!
