Bloom Where You're Planted | Scrapbook Layout

I'm so excited to share this fun scrapbook layout with you! Years ago when I lived somewhere I thought I hated, was going through a negative time, and was basically an angsty teenager, my sister told me these words: "Bloom where you are planted." At the time, I of course refused the advice and went along my grumpy way. Over the years, that saying became one of the most important reminders for myself. I'm always reminding myself to make the most of what I have, where I have it, and be thankful for the opportunities (no matter how much I think I don't like them at that moment). I know one day I will look back on each and every one of them and be so grateful. - I know this because that place I once "hated more than anything" became my home (Monterey) and the place I miss most now that I no longer live there.

So with that little back story, here's the layout:
