January 1, 2023


The challenge #631 at  "LASTING MEMORIES"  is Firsts.    So I made this layout about how we spent our first day of 2023.     We went out for a nice meal on New Years Eve, so New Years Day was spent quietly at home.     We had leftovers from the night before and lots of snacks, this was what I was enjoying while watching the Chiefs win and play the next last game of the regular season.     It was the perfect  FIRST DAY OF A NEW YEAR.

Happy 2023!  The new year is here.  This month we are focusing on the year that has passed and the new year that's ahead.

Our first challenge of the new year is:

LM #631 - Firsts - Since January is the first month of the year, this week we are creating layouts about "firsts."  Maybe it's a first birthday, first anniversary, first time visiting a restaurant, or new vacation spot.
