Thinking of you,Dad!

Hello everyone,

Hope you all have a nice day! For me these days are a bit emotional cause tomorrow it would have been my dad’s name day (which,in Greece where I come from, is almost as big a celebration as someone’s birthday )…but it’s the first year that I can’t send him my wishes as he is no longer around us. He is always in my heart and in my thoughts though…so I’ve decided to make this journal page for him.

Hope you like it! (unfortunatelly the camera couldn’t pick the colors very well …but they do look really nice in real!)
