November 2019 - Challenge #1 - Anticipation!

It's time for Challenge #1 today and it's all about the waiting
The excitement
The "how many sleeps until....". 
The build up to the main event!

So let's see what I challenged the Master Forgers with this time around as my favourite month progresses!

"For many, November is a time of anticipation - before the fun of Christmas begins, looking forward to - or maybe dreading - the weather turning colder and winter showing its face,  or the year coming to an end. Or, like me, it might be a time full of birthdays, wedding anniversaries and family visits. Whatever it is you're expecting, waiting for or feeling excited about, be inspired by the anticipation of something today!"

"Anticipation…many are anticipating Thanksgiving, Christmas, or the New Year at this time of year. Not me. Not this year. I am anticipating a move that will almost be exactly a year after our previous move. This is the quickest move the US Military has ever bestowed upon us! I find myself scrambling to make sure I have purged the things that need to be purged, but also making sure that I don’t over-buy things for our pantry this time. It’s crazy to have this sort of anticipation at what is already a busy time of the year for us!! The journaling on my layout that I created for this challenge talks about the anticipation of new memories to be maid and the addition of new friends and community to be added to our “tribe”."
