Thankful for These...

I made these layouts for MWL recently using lots of Crate Paper's Restoration series. Love them as they represent what I'm thankful for: a great relationship with my in-laws and a fab family.

The first one is a glimpse into our reunion dinners every Chinese New Year. We always eat too much during these feasts! LOL.

 My husband and I just celebrated our eighth anniversary this year. Just like any marriage and relationship, we've been through ups and downs, learning to work through differences along the way and yes, we've pulled through so far.  And we havn't scratched each other yet! It's also great that we can still steal moments away from the children on trips like this one to Rome.
