Utah....again!! {trip #2}

I decided that I wanted to print all of mom's story in one book, and I decided that I wanted to document EVERYTHING, no matter how many pages it takes. {Sometimes I edit and condense for the sake of space and money because I know I take a lot of pictures}....but, I don't care this time! I want it all! Every picture, every memory, every story, everything.

Processing all of these pictures and editing all of the journaling has been hard. It's heart wrenching to go back and look at how sick mom really was, to see the pain and anguish in her face. It's hard to know that she's not with us anymore and to process that I won't ever see her again in this life, but it's also therapeutic to look at the memories, to remember the good times, and the bad, to document and preserve our story. Because that is what it really is, it's our story. It's my story, and I want to remember it.

Again I used the same kit called "She's a Fighter" by Kristin Cronin-Barrow from Sweet Shoppe Designs for most of the pages. {I added a few other elements from my stash}.

All of the templates are from Yin Designs, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her templates!!

I can't wait to print it!!
