I was born + raised in what was then known as Czechoslovakia. When I was 10 my parents (along with me) fled the then communist country and through a host of twists and turns we ended up in Australia. I grew up here getting to know a life of freedom and opportunity. We currently live in the Sunshine State of Queensland.
My family now consists of my loving & supportive husband Lincoln. Aussie born and bred. And my 3 gorgeous kids April 8, Calvin 6 & Mackenzie 5. We also have 2 dogs, Abbey & Lilly, and 5 guinea piggies - one named by each member of the human family. They are Lucky, Shaggy, Feather, Fudge and Snowy.
The way I use Project Life is to document the big and little things that document our lives. I use a 'hybrid' form of Project life combining both digital and physical elements to complete and print photos for weekly layouts into a physical album. Becky Higgins Project LIfe is like a tried and true recipe. You know if you follow it exactly you will get a great result. If you have the time and courage to tweak it you can give it your own spin but this can't work without that base recipe to build on.
To me, documenting life is a a record of journey of discovery and rediscovery. It's a record of our life. All of it. Not just the big things.
Three things on my bucket list are:
- Take my kids to Disneyland in the US
- Learn to play the piano
- Take a cruise on a fancy liner with my family.
Cultivating a good life means: loving your life and the people in it, being thankful and always having a positive outlook. Laughing, making effort and not sweating the little things and of course taking the time to see and enjoy it all.
