the beautiful years >> a guest post.

In my grateful post earlier this week I mentioned that I was making a journal out of an old book I found, and I am so excited to show you the final product today. I found this book last week titled "The Beautiful Years" and if that isn't the perfect title for a journal then I don't know what is! Just another reminder that life is only as beautiful as we make it, and to just enjoy the present. In a few years I know I'll look back on this time with the fondest of memories.

To read more about why I love journals and to see how I made this one, be sure to head on over to see my guest post on Kelly Ann's wonderful blog and check it out! Big thank you to Kelly Ann for her sweet words and for inviting me to do a guest post! She is seriously the best. <3

  6. This is such a great re-purposing of an old book! Not only a great journal–but an ideal sketch/watercolor book.

  17. I'm just getting into my DSLR and wondered if you'd share what type of lens you're using here. Obviously something with a big aperture, but I'm wondering how big. Thanks!
