December Not So Daily

December has not worked out as I planned. Life does that sometimes.

It was my intention to document each day, adding a fourth book to my December Daily collection. Life had other intentions.

We’ve been balancing the busy calendar of December with multiple medical appointments for my husband. Specialists, tests, procedures. On many days I’ve had enough energy to take a few photos and that is where it ends.

We believe we are very close to having his medical issues resolved. Most likely surgery and recovery will lead him back to good health. We are extremely grateful for our health benefits and a diagnosis that has a resolution.

It breaks my heart to think of the photos I’ve missed and the photos I’ve taken haphazardly while my focus is someplace else.

Thankfully he’s had many good days allowing us to add in some of the usual Christmas for a very excited six year old in our house.


Anna’s Holiday Template Album has become the perfect solution for me this year. I intended to use it daily to document my month, but will now be using it as she created it, a beautiful overview of our month. I’ll fill the 20 templates with my favorite photos from the month. I’m planning on using a simple white background breaking with my December Daily tradition.

Thank you for your support and kind comments on Facebook and via email. I’ve appreciated each and every one.

Happy Holidays!



  1. This year’s album may not be quite what you planned, but I can’t wait to see your pages and photos. This may turn out to be a favorite album for you, especially with the unique and simple organization Anna’s templates provide for this Christmas season. Thankfully the prognosis is good for your husband, so I pray for his continued recovery and that you have a wonderful holiday with your family!

    • Thank you Linda. I think you may be right. Anna’s album is completely my style. I am beyond grateful that my husband will soon be on the mend and this chapter will be behind us. Thank you for your kindness and support!

  2. Your husband & your family are in my thoughts & prayers! 🙂

    Thanks so much for all you share here at your 365 blog.
