This year, each month, I will be collaborating with my dear friend Jenny to bring you a desktop background, 5x7" print, and bookmark printable each month (similar to the calendars I did for Blog a la Cart in 2013).
Each month, I will create a design around a quote that speaks to me ... Jenny will make the designs and printables available on her blog.
I was a little slow getting going this month, so January's went live on Jenny's blog, the PRETTY blog, yesterday. You can get the image above for your desktop background, and you can download a printable PDF that has the 5x7" print and bookmark.
This quote really spoke to me for the journey I am currently on with my family. It seemed especially appropriate for January, a time where we tend to reflect on the year past and make plans, cement hopes, and craft dreams for the year ahead. I try to live present, enjoy the present, and not live in the future at the expense of appreciating the now. That can be difficult. And, this quote makes a good point about all that. We don't know what our future holds; sometimes everything turns out how we expect it to, but other times it doesn't. Those other times can turn out to be so much better than we ever imagined.
So, this quote acts as a reminder to me ...
