JFC - Day 17 Beautiful

I'm so sorry for the lack of posting! I've been so busy with work (but PTL for that!) that I haven't had the chance to keep up with my journaling! Yesterday was the last day, but I'm only up to Day 20. I'm playing catch-up again here on the blog. Here is my Day 17.

Day 17: Focus on something beautiful
She's the strongest person I know. My mother is the epitome of beautiful, inside and out. She's selfless and loving. I only hope I'm half the mother to my kids as she is for my brothers and I. I'm blessed to be able to call this beautiful lady... my mother.

Wishing my amazing mom and wonderful husband a fantastic and blessed birthday! I love these two so much! I'm so fortunate to have them in my life. PTL!

JFC Day 16

For Day 16, we were prompted to dedicate a whole page to our pet or pets. The hubs and I have a doggie and his name is Mushu (but we usually call him Moosh, Mooshbud, Buddy, and Pumpkin).

Day 16: Pet Page
Mushu: This is our cowardly dog, Mushu. When people hear that name, they usually think of the food dish...but he was actually named after this little guy from Mulan (for sentimental reasons). He's a big pansy, but I really can't imagine our lives without him. He's become our four-legged child. ♥

Playing Catch-up

Man, I've been slacking on my journaling and posting! (There went goal #1...) But thankfully I have caught up. I left off at day 3 and it's now day 14 (!) of the challenge, so I won't bombard this post with all of my missing journal pages. You can check them out on my flickr set. I'll leave you with 3 of my favorites.

Day 4: What does happiness mean to you?

Day 7: Today I am thankful for...

Day 13: Childhood Dreams

Please go and check out the rest of my entries on flickr. I'd love to hear what you think! =)
