Ekolu Kai Mini Take Two!

The mini album continues with more favorite pics of the girls. I might be biased but I feel pretty lucky to have such great models for testing out my amateur photography skills.

My reason for scrapbooking

Ekolu Kai. Ekolu meaning 3 and Kai is the beginning of their names ... they make me happy.
Every year for the past 5 years now we have been participating in Ever After's Survivor Crop. We stay up for 24 hours to raise money for Susan G Komen's Breast Cancer Foundation. Make n takes are part of the event and this is my twist on the minibook we created there. Breast cancer can and probably has touched us all in one way or another. It's a good reminder to get our mammograms and live life fully as we never know what surprises life may bring us.

What better way to remind myself to live life to the fullest than these 3?

The 3 C's ...

... of life speaks to me. You're probably wondering why I chose to start over with this blog. In the year of less, I felt it appropriate to have less in my digital life. Would like to focus on real life now, scrapbooking it more and enjoying it more.

I'm making a choice to take a chance in order to change.
What change means to me right now ...
*less emotional (do I really have to act so tough to avoid hurt?)
*less fearful (try to avoid insecurities about what others think)
*less busy (if I'm spending quality time with the kids, does anything else matter?)
*less productive (things will not be better after my work is done, things are good right now!)

This might take me right out of my comfort zone ... but isn't that what taking chances is all about?
