Last weekend was my first weekend all by myself. In a way, I was actually looking forward to it. Of course, I missed my husband and friends, especially after my NYC visit the following last weekend. It was just refreshing to go around town and be on my own for a bit. I used the time to get started on something I committed to doing while my husband is away and that’s starting a duty station scrapbook.
I went to a local diner to have a quick breakfast. Afterwards, I went to Target to take a look at their scrapbooking section. Last time I was there I noticed a lot of cute things. Well, I didn’t really like the actual book selection, but was able to grab scrapbooking pages and sticker letters. I knew I had a lot to work with in regards of items to fill it. I plan on starting with putting pages together and go to another craft store for additional accessories and look at books.
My husband and I have been lucky to spend a lot of our time together exploring around the Fort Belvoir area. Every time we went somewhere new, I managed to collect brochures, tickets, maps and other miscellaneous stuff. All great mementos for a potential scrapbook!
We’ve really been enjoying ourselves here in Virginia and plan to make the most of anywhere else we go. Putting together a book with all our fun moments is a great way to preserve the memories. This new activity is a great way to spend my free time too. It keeps me busy and it’s also nice to recall all the exciting trips and things we’ve explored together in just our short time here. I’m looking forward to when he gets back to continue the memories!
