Woohoo! I finally got my Morocco album delivered! Aaaannd it only took 7 months. That may seem like a long time to you go getters, but in my world anything under a year is impressive. It takes me forever to put together vacation albums!! On top of my normal procrastination habit I also take a lot of photos on trips. I’m glad that I capture so much, but it takes forever to filter through them all. Then I have to put them together and add in all the fun notes and stories. You can read about my travel note process here. Then to top it all of I then somehow always manage to delete hours of unsaved work. It’s a tough process, but when the hair pulling is done and the package shows up on my step, it’s all worth it.
I love having these albums to remember my favorite adventures. For the past 6 years I’ve made Shutterfly 8 x 11 album for every international trip I go on. They are usually around 50 pages, depending on how long the trip was. Good quality photo books can be a little pricey but Shutterfly always has great coupons so I just wait to click submit until I get a good deal. Once I get them they sit neatly together on a bookshelf until I pull one down to relive the fun. Here are a few of my favorite pages from my Morocoo album.

I’m so obsessed with our little fluff ball! We were at Stagecoach this weekend and I missed her so much. I’ve heard of crazy cat ladies and f I’m not careful I might put crazy dog lady on the map! But seriously, that face ^^
This little pup loves adventuring around dtla, especially when she gets to chase birds. Or leaves. Or anything that moves- she’s not picky. She even chases after large dogs, until they try to play or chase her back. Then she runs between my legs and hides until they start walking away, and then starts chasing them again. Textbook Napoleon complex. So bossy.
These are some shots Steve snapped at Grand Park just a few blocks from teh pad. Fun to have green space in downtown. Just hanging out with the fam in the park with some sunshine. Blessed. And yes, three weeks later and I still have pink streaks in my hair from India. Oops.
