As someone who moves every 2-3 years you would think that packing up and moving our lives, including moving away from friends, would be old hat by now. Very much not so.
I miss my friends. The friends that know me. The ones that don't care that I'm inappropriate, have the sense of humor of a 14 year old and enjoy brainless tv on occasion. Those friends.
Sure, I'm meeting some incredible ladies here that will also go in this category, but it always takes me a few months to "feel people out" so to speak and figure out who I gel with. I'll get there; I know I will.
In the meantime though, it gets lonely.
Creating has always been therapeutic for me, but especially so during moves. I find myself reaching for photos of family and friends and laughing while I cut paper!
I never know what to do with vellum so I decided to wing it and stitch a little envelope for my journaling tag because I knew I wanted more than just a few words for this layout. I needed more than a few words and I'm so happy with how it turned out.
