When we all begin to scrapbook I believe we all do the same thing, making pages about the places we've been, the people we've visited, the things we've done.

It's very easy to get caught up in organising the photos and scrappin chronologically so that every thing runs smoothly and to a greater plan.
But, we're never going to get caught up and therefore we're always going to carry the guilt, we get stuck on creating the baby's first year - for a child that's already 5 (or 10!) Meanwhile we're missing out on the memories of NOW.
If we're always tied up in knots about the the things that happened last year how can we ever be really free to just create with what inspires us today?
Sure, the places, the visits, the achievements, that's proof that we're here, we've lived and we've taken the kids to all the right places, but what about all the other things in between, the stuff that really matters, the stuff that will be remembered?

* weekend breakfast rituals
* just woken up faces
* books & favourite toys
* a certain brand you always buy
* things they say
* how someone always sits or stands

It IS the LITTLE things that are the BIG things.

I could't agree with you more, you know that already though! Wonderfully put!
