Paying it Forward

I have a confession. And a request. What seems like a long, long time ago, I jumped aboard this thing called "Pay it Forward." Now let me assure you, at the time I had every intention of making something cool for Whitney when she commented on that post, but then {insert excuses}, and I'm sure the year in which I was supposed to complete the project came and went.

Luckily, she has given me a second opportunity to help her out. You see, she's a grad student {I remember that all too painfully well} and she is collecting data for her thesis. And guess what her thesis is on....blogging!

If there's anything I like more than blogging it might be talking about blogging.

If you would like to help her, you can visit here. And please do it. Send in your questionnaires. Remember, I'm trying to redeem myself. I know I'm no cjane, but 12 more responses is 12 more, right? {Even if I am one of them.}

October, what??

So I'm trying to get caught up on my digital scrapbooking 12 of 12 pages, but it is slow going. I want to keep doing it because I love looking back through my pages and seeing little snippets of our young, married life, but at the same time, I don't have the desire most days to sit down and actually devote time to it.

And that is why I am writing a post about October in March. One disadvantage to making the page so far after the actual day is that the details are foggy. For example, why was I blowing my nose? Was I still getting over my September megacold or was it just allergies? Don't know. Oh well, better late than never I guess.

The Results

Sadly, we've had our new canvas for three weeks now, and I'm just getting around to posting the pictures. Life has been as busy as usual, plus I'm trying to spend less time on the computer and more time reading scriptures and other good books.

But without further ado, I present to you the picture we chose to print on canvas:

The waterfall picture!

We ultimately chose it because the focus of that photograph isn't just on us; it also had the pretty nature scene too. As cute as the other options may be, Henry didn't feel comfortable hanging a photo that would make us look larger than life, and I can understand where he's coming from. It is a 24 x 40 inch canvas...that would make us look like we have big heads...literally and maybe figuratively too.

Anyway, I LOVE it. I'm so happy with the way it turned out. And who knows, maybe I'll be able to convince Henry to make small canvas prints of the other photos someday soon. =)
