Thanksgiving Mini Album {Scrapbooking + Photography + Chicago + Adventure

Yay Wednesday!

This year, I wanted to create a Thanksgiving mini album about all of the things that I am grateful for in my life.

I thought it would be fun to share the pages this week and next week in honor of Thanksgiving.

Of course, I had to include scrapping and photography. I am so grateful that we have the resources for me to  have this as part of my life. And of course, I am grateful to have a fiance that doesn't mind the scrapbook paper and embellishments all over the apartment, or having his picture taken all the time!

These two things kind of go together, so I put them on pages next to each other. The adventure that we are on with AJ's job is what brought us to Chicago. I'd always wanted to live here, but never thought I'd have the chance after deciding to stay in New York for college! There are so many times that I look around and say "Wow, I can't believe that this is where we live!"

I'll be back tomorrow with the next two pages of my album...and a hysterical picture of AJ, that I'm sure he won't mind if I share on the blog...right? :)

If you missed any pages along the way, you can stop here:

Can't wait to see the rest of it!
Chuck doesn't read my scrapbooking blog, so I can put goofy photos of him there without worrying. :)

Where'd you get the metal Sears Tower embellie? We took a long weekend trip to Chicago 10 years ago that I want to do a mini about and that would be perfect!

This looks awesome! Two things we are all grateful for, I'm sure!

So much fun! I may have to try one of these books for my next 30 days of lists!

What a beautiful idea! So nice to remember what we're thankful for. Scrapping will definitely help you remember all of it! That's so cool about always wanting to live in Chicago!
Oh no! About the photo of AJ! He's going to let you? :)
