This is my Before/After Theme Challenge... BK: Before Kids.... I'd still like to add some creative "arrows" from my before shots to my after shots... any ideas??
Journalling: People so often make the comment "I can't remember what life was like Before Kids". I do. I'll be honest, there are times when I am sad because I don't have that BK life anymore... I loved exploring the Island on my motorbike, which we painted orange and named "Cheeto" (in honour of my favourite snack). I felt great wearing clothes a "few sizes" smaller... I worked so hard to get there. Ahhh... BK.
This summer (2006) we sold my motorbike and bought a tent trailer. I cried when I heard the rumbly purr of my Beemer bike drive away for the last time. But I wouldn't trade my life for anything. I'm a wife and a mom. We will create new family memories with our tent trailer and, really, does it matter what size I am?? One day those other things will come back. For now though, I'm going to eat my cheetos in my tent trailer and enjoy my kids! Life's too short to dwell in the past.

I love your page, but more than that, I admire your honesty. I feel the same way about the BK life. My four-year-old DD is the sweetest and I am glad for the gift of her in my life. I do miss some of the freedom of life BK.

Great job here. I love this color combo - very bright and cheery and the stamping is great. I like your layout and your photos add to your journaling. But the journaling is the best part here. I love the details and that you did a page about you.
