I saw down on the weekend and spent about an hour putting together the August pages in my year-long memory keeping project based on my Scrapbook Your Year online class. I really love this simple collection of photos and a handful of words to show me what my year looked like.
Number of Photos Taken in August: 497. More photos this month than last, but honestly, most of those were either numerous shots of cards or scrapbook pages that eventually got deleted from my library. Once I culled them down, the number for the month was 233. I take a ton of shots for blog posts that involved crafty stuff, so this always skews the photo count higher at first.
Number Used: 26
The title pages is just a few shots that I love from the month, each month. And the photo of my girl in the lower level is her attempt at a Collin Kartchner earlobe grab. Collin, who has the silliest Instagram account in the land, has used that silliness to raise well over $1ooK from his followers to give directly to those who lost everything in Harvey down in Texas. That photo of Aidan reminds me of how much good is out there. Note: Collin is still raising funds and still helping folks in need. Please follow his story and see how you can help!

Highlight of the month? Cole’s haircut. Am I right? I have to tell you guys, this kid has saved me SO much money over the years by choosing Great Clips over a swanky salon, and last year, he got ZERO cuts. He also buys all of his clothes at the Goodwill, too. He’s a thrifty one, that boy.
If you’ve followed me since the olden days, you’ll remember my daughter’s childhood best friend, Nicolette. We recently got together with their family for dinner. And yes, that sound IS the bullet train plowing through my heart, Inception-movie style.
And that wraps up the month. Aidan heading back to school for her last year as an undergrad. Dan starting to prepare for his new job as a 6th grade teacher. Cole preparing to start his senior year. And me, well, you know me.
