SUMMER FRIDAY TRAVEL JOURNAL SERIES: A Normal Old Scrapbook

My in-laws live in upstate new york. I'm still feeling pretty chill after returning from an amazingly peaceful trip to visit them and other family last week.

Visiting my in-laws house is like taking a retreat in the woods.
It's peaceful. There's lots of out-doors stuff to do. Especially if we head up to the family's camp on the St. Lawrence river.

So in honor of visiting family, out-door fun, and all other distracting happy summer things:
I celebrate the NORMAL OLD SCRAPBOOK.

These pictures are from a NORMAL OLD SCRAPBOOK I made from a trip to New York in 2005.
Not a very revolutionary scrap-book.
But special just the same.
The first half is almost all photos of family. No writing. Just happy memories.
The second half is from a week I spent in NYC at the end of the trip looking at art (still in 2005, not from my recent trip mind-you).
Here's an idea for your journals: progressive postcard pages, laid out in an overlapping flippy-book way.
Not exactly connected to the pictures of me fishing.
But who cares? Same trip, same journal.

Does this post sound lazy and summerish? I hope so.

To be honest, even though I've been feeling pretty chill, I'm still working like crazy. I always am. That's the way I am.

It's just nice to have an super active mind and still feel pretty peaceful. You know?
