I know what you're thinking... February!? It's May!
Well, I am a busy girl so getting it photographed and posted was not an easy task. It seems so long ago, February. It was about 3 months ago. So much has changed in three months.

I spent my first Valentine's Day alone since high school and it was just fine. I was never a huge Valentine's Day girl. Steve and I had always kept it pretty low key so it wasn't a big deal to spend it alone. At the time, I had convinced a friend to go see Safe Haven and he hated it, so did I though haha.

Friends kept me busy.
I became close with friends in grad school. We went out to dinners and laughed in class about who knows what. I felt like things were getting back to normal and my life was starting to look brighter.

I started doing yoga. Since then, I stopped haha. But I constantly workout throughout the week. With the dog and school, yoga needed more time than I could afford. Now that my parents are home and school is basically over with, I think I can spare some time. Fifa kept me sane on my lonely nights.

Words. Of. Wisdom.
It kept me sane.
My friends kept me sane. Quotes, words, hope. It's what helped me believe I was better off and it wasn't the end.
That blog post helped so much. I couldn't believe how true it was for me at the time.

The best part about February?
I got to watch my best friend get married. I got to take pictures for her to keep. I got to be her witness and sign her marriage papers. It was amazing.
I could not be happier for her. She deserves it. And although the distance sucks, we won't let it get in the way of our friendship.
It had been a while since I spoke to her so I called yesterday. I realized her husband, J, had left for a three week training. Even though she knew it would be like this, military life, it doesn't make it any easier. So we chatted for an hour and caught up.

I finished March this past weekend and will post that sooner than I did February.
I really do love this project. It has worked so much better for me doing it month-at-a-glance than doing it weekly. Especially since so far this year my weeks have been pretty boring with school.
Looking back on 2012 and 2013 when I'm older is going to be interesting. I will be glad I did it.


  1. I love your pages, you have a great style. I like the month-by-month approach also, I'm doing it weekly this year but I don't think I will stick with that next year, my life just isn't interesting enough.

    1. thank you! :)
      seriously, my life isn't that exciting this year to do a week-to-week. all I ever did was study haha I enjoy the months!

  2. Looks great Sammy, I'm glad you're still sticking with it :D I'm doing it bi-weekly or monthly next year too.
