entertaining journal





I used to keep an entertaining journal that documented each party we had at our house, or sometimes just a record of food that I made for someone else's party. The middle three images are from a 'dog days of summer' birthday party I threw for my two labs (really just a good excuse to have people over), as well as a friend. I still refer to that binder- I would put recipes of things I made as well as 'reviews' of them, invitations that were sent out, etcetera. I'd like to think I will do the binder again- but I think it's a long shot with how full life feels these days. The only two resolutions I've come up with this year are: 1) don't use a paper or plastic bag all year and 2) start back with pilates 1-2 times a week. I've got many, many more to make- but I'm starting with those for now!

I love the party binder. I have a bunch of sheet protectors waiting to be put to good use. Great idea!

Good luck with your resolutions. Great focus.
