Hello 2015 and Hello 40

Happy New Year!

I'll make it brief so you can get back to fulfilling your New Year's Resolutions. I am just here to share this month's layout for Write.Click.Scrapbook's January gallery. The theme, as it often is for January, is "Decades." And since I turned 40 just a few days ago, it seemed pretty fitting to scrap about that.

Leading up to my birthday, I didn't really have all that much to say about the number. I have been pretty busy with Bar Mitzvah planning, so the big birthday was just at the back of my mind. But then there it was, 11:30-something PM, on December 26th, and suddenly I felt a little sad that I will never be in my 30's again. Not that it matters much, but still. You just get to do it once.

So that little moment,and the thoughts that followed make up this page:

At first, when I wrote out the journaling, I thought, "That's it? 10 years, and you can sum it all up in 14 lines?" But the topics covered there are family, work, scrapbooking, and Israel. So, yes. That pretty much sums up everything I do. (Except for some synagogue work, but that is a longer story, so I decide to leave it off this page.)

Thanks for stopping by!
