SMASH Book of our Travels
I’ve been “smashing” up our memories lately and putting all sorts of loose little pieces into SMASH books. I especially love our book of travels. I scan everything I can that I collect on trips so I can use it on digital scrapbook pages, but I don’t like to throw these types of treasures away. I’ve found Smashbooking to be the perfect answer for me and we all love to look through these books. I even bring them with me on vacation sometimes. You can read more about the beginning of this project that started with a December trip to Disneyland over on Capturing Magic.
I just continued on filling up this book with our travels from 2013 and 2014. I plan to finish it up by the end of the year with some upcoming trips. Then it will be time to start a new volume. So fun!
If you are looking for more ideas on how to use these clever little books (or any type of notebook scrapping), be sure to download my free pdf list. It’s been pinned and repinned thousands of times on Pinterest!

Documenting Senior Year
I shared this photo yesterday on my Instagram account, but so many people liked the idea that I wanted to post about it here. I totally fell in love with the hashtag sign idea after seeing it in this post over at The Daily Digi. Hashtags are definitely having their moment in the sun and I’m sure my daughter will always associate them with her high school years since that is when they became part of our everyday lives. Love them or hate them, they are so 2014.
I wanted to do something special to mark the first day of her senior year because this is an important milestone. It’s a big year for her! It’s also pretty amazing for me since I’m not homeschooling her AND she can drive herself back and forth to school each day. Yay!
I have a lot of ideas for capturing the memories of this coming year and we are both excited to use some more hashtag signs in the upcoming months. I’ve got my eye out for scrapbook projects related to high school seniors and I have been thrilled when some of my digi friends have even sent me links to some great ones. Here are a few that are really inspiring me:
Cathy Zielske’s graduation book for Aidan. I adore this!
Stacy Julian’s 180 days project for Clark. So very meaningful.
Eleven tips for high school senior photos from Digital Photography School
If you have any other links or tips to share with me, I’d love to know!

Thank you summer for bringing me flowers, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, green grass, long days, and beautiful sunsets. I’ve enjoyed our landscaped yard so much this year. I’m sure going without a yard last summer has increased my appreciation, but I hope to always feel grateful for this blessing in the future.
Thank you summer for the extra time with my children. Even though my daughter Riley went to a lot of camps, I still had time and experiences with her that would not have been possible during the school year. We are both very aware that our time together in the same house is winding down as she will leave for college in a year. I think that has made us feel closer.
 I also had wonderful time with my son Alex in a more relaxed environment. No school, just hanging out together. With my daughter and husband both traveling a lot over the last few months, there have been a few weeks where it has only been the two of us together. We love to be together and have had many long conversations about everything from Harry Potter to the Muppets.
Thank you summer for giving me travel time. We went to Lake Tahoe, Reno, Cedar City (twice), Logan, and even spent a night in downtown Salt Lake City. We visited a national park, saw world class theater, and watched fireworks from a boat on Lake Tahoe. Pretty amazing! We also made a lot of memories together during long car rides and sharing new experiences.
Thank you summer for all the photo opportunities. Lots of daylight and plenty of great subjects made the season a photographer’s dream. I took 467 pictures in the month of July alone. That’s pretty hard to do in January!
Thank you summer for fresh food and outdoor eating. Grilled pineapple spears, barbecued hot dogs, roasted marshmallows, and picnic lunches are so tasty and the stuff that good memories are made of. For some reason, it all seemed even more special because we had a new picnic basket.
Thank you summer for good music. We went to three live concerts and rocked our hearts out. We saw One Republic with The Script and American Authors at Usana Amphitheater in June. In July, we saw Foreigner and Styx perform at Usana. We finished the summer concert rounds with a bang in August when we saw Paul McCartney at the Energy Solutions Arena. All three concerts were amazing, but the Paul McCartney one just blew us all away!
Thank you summer for sleeping in, taking naps, and staying up late. We’ve had all sorts of strange schedules and it’s been a bit crazy and a lot of fun. 
Thank you summer for wearing us all out enough that we are actually looking forward to the back to school routines that will be starting today. I love summer, but I honestly couldn’t keep up that pace all year long!

What would you like to thank summer for? Why not write a thank you letter to the season to record your memories? It’s a fun and meaningful exercise!
