TBT ~ Looking Back At My ‘New Year’s Resolutions’

Hello my lovely friends! ๐Ÿ’•

It’s been so (too!) long that I sat down to write a post, and share it with you all. In my mind I’ve written a few ๐Ÿ˜, but somehow I ended up in an endless loop of wanting to put fingers to keyboard, putting it off…just to start the same process the next day.

But, enough excuses – we’re all here now, and I thought writing a ‘TBT’ post is a good way to get my creative (writing) juices flowing again. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The ‘New Year’ Resolutions…well, even though there weren’t many, I pretty much failed each and every one. ๐Ÿ™ˆ

  1. Sharing photos – Nope, did not happen  ๐Ÿ˜” It’s still in the realm of possibilities though…see ๐Ÿ˜…
  2. The ‘Weekly Gallery” – Nope ๐Ÿคญ See above
  3. A steady writing schedule – Nope…this is getting old ๐Ÿ˜ฌ see above

My biggest goal for this year, and I didn’t even write it down, was getting my US Citizenship  – that I did. ๐Ÿ˜Š

As of July 24th, 2019 I am an American citizen. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
It was a very moving ceremony, and I met a lot of lovely people from all over the world. ๐Ÿ˜ It was wonderful to share this day with all these amazing people. We were so many (321 new and proud new citizens), that we even made the news. ๐Ÿค 
Here’s hubby and me after the ceremony

 That was it for my ‘Throw Back Thursday’. ๐Ÿค— I will be back soon to tell you all about my new journals… (here are some examples) ๐Ÿค“

…hoping to inspire and maybe even help you through the first steps of creating your own ‘Junkjournal’.

Until then ๐Ÿ’•

      Thank you so much for your lovely & sweet words, Kathy! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿค—
      You should give junk journals a try ๐Ÿ˜Š You could make it a โ€˜Garden Diaryโ€™, and decorate every page with fun & colorful scraps of paper ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ’• See where that takes you. ๐Ÿค
