So many missing pages
Recently I went back to look through my journals because I was curious about my word for the year and the ways that God showed up for me in 2023. I dug a couple of cute notebooks and a planner out from under my bed, paged through, and…. nothing.
Planner was from 2022. Journal entries were from 2022. So I deduced that my reflections must have been written somewhere else. I dug through bags and bins and closets, finally finding a couple more journals. Paging through, I found… nothing! What?!
Then it dawned on me.
Let’s just call 2023 the year of the baby.
Of course I didn’t write in a journal, I could barely get my kids out the door with brushed hair and teeth for school in the morning. And let’s be honest, that didn’t even always happen.
I was in survival mode as new mom’s generally are. Truthfully, most mornings I slept in while my husband took care of getting our older kids off to school -because I was up with baby Joseph during the night. A lot.
Point being, 2023 is a blur. But, I still somehow managed to illustrate a book!
It's been awhile since I've mentioned this book and illustrations. The illustrations have been done since this past November, but turns out the whole process is a bit more involved and time consuming than I thought it would be. We are getting close though! Expect more updates very soon. In the meantime, I would love to know...

Have a great Thursday!
