Hello and welcome to another story.

My ‘test’ if you will, to knowing if I’ve succeeded in my quest to capture the story, will be that if I can just quote the journaling I’ve used on the page and not need/want to add anything here in the post to explain it further, then I have done it, I’ve got all the bits of the story down.
Here’s the story from this page –
This Pasadena hotel was out first proper stop off. Pasadena! Yay. We loved it here and I adored that view from the breakfast spot. It was surreal that we sat down to have our ‘made in the machine’ pancakes and looked out to those mountains. A ridge of glorious mountains surrounding the sprawl of LA and its nearby towns. Loved it so.
The takeaway from story number fourteen/would I add anything more?
This is another photo from our trip to the US last year. I take lots of photos and sometimes I wonder why I take what I take. Random scenes. But this one although it is a random scene is so meaningful to me. Now I don’t think the story on the page conveys that with as much passion as I felt when I sat in that spot or even feel right now as I look back.
However, to my mind it does tell the basic story and it does mention how amazed I was by the surroundings etc. I think I need to invest some time to dig deeper into my feelings and express them in a different way occasionally rather than opting for the easy ‘I loved it’ route but overall not bad.
52 stories is a year long series or adventure in my story telling. Can I get the whole story onto a layout? Am I telling the stories I want to tell? Read the inspiration post here.
