The Weekend | Feb. 26-27

JOURNALING | february 26-27 | I suppose it was bound to happen sooner or later, especially since I had just recently commented on how Nicholas hadn’t been sick in quite a while – famous last words. On Friday night he had a persistent cough and by Saturday he was running a fever of 102 degrees. We postponed “taco bravo night” with friends that night because no one was feeling up to it, but by Sunday he had recovered enough to be bouncing around again and we even had Grandma and Grandpa over for dinner. If a 48 hour cold is the worst we see this winter I’ll count ourselves amongst the lucky ones, but not before I knock on every piece of wood furniture in the house.

About This Project: A Year of Weekends is an ongoing album project that embodies my desire to stay grounded in the everyday unsung moments that make up the weekends of my life while also giving me a playground to express myself through design and storytelling – without any pressure to be poignant or a trendsetter. My goal is to always design these pages around products I already own or designed myself, which allows me to revisit some of my favorite kits and products and either use items for the first time or see previously used products in a whole new light. Sometimes the pages will be irreverent, other times they’ll be serious or emotional, but all of them are created in celebration of the extraordinarily ordinary moments that fill the 48 hours of each weekend.

Feel free to join in and post links to your own pages in the comments. Don’t worry about what products you use, all stories are welcome.
