Wasabi, Eloping and Sketchbook Project 2012

I'm slowly but surely filling up this "Encyclopedia of" themed sketchbook.  I think I'm going to try and have this in the mail by Jan 2, 2012.  These are the latest sketches and thoughts that I've added since October.  Excerpts from each hand-written page follow each image.

Fork and Spoon and my memory of telling my parents I'm moving in with my boyfriend.
More than 25 years ago, my husband and I eloped.  Before eloping, we lived together for about a year. I remember what my Mother said when I told her I was moving in with my boyfriend (now my husband).  She said, "Hay Muchacha!"  Then she told me to tell my Father.  Darn, I thought she'd tell him for me.  My Father said, "I guess that's how it's done nowadays."   After we eloped, I told my Mom that we had gotten married.  She said, "Gracias a Dios."  I'm thankful that my parents gave me just enough freedom to make the choices I felt strongly about making.

Nice journal pages - I like how you sketch and journal on opposing pages. Cool that you will complete your journal. That much feel great.
Blessings,
Tricia
