Live the way you want to be remembered

When I looked in the background of that picture of me in my college dorm room in my previous post, I saw a note/sign I made that I had hung with my pictures.  I haven’t thought of this phrase in a while, but it was my mantra then and it still is now:  Live the way you want to be remembered. I want to be remembered not only to those I come across from my blog, my neighbors, school, and church. But more importantly my children, husband, and family.  My children are my legacy, and I want to live in such a way that they will remember our time fondly. I don’t want them to remember me always on the computer, but spending time with them or reading to them or taking them on adventures.  I decided I’m going to make a 16×20 and hang this in my office (that I’m currently in the process of sprucing up) so thought I’d share with you. Since I am decorating my office in the colors of these here blog, these are the 5 colors I’m decorating around.

Click on the images above to be taken to the download zip file for all of them. I created it as a 16×20, but if you wanted an 8×10, they are the same crop ratio and you can still order that way (or re-crop to smaller). They would look great on a canvas wrap or framed.  If you print at a local printer, just make sure you turn off the color correct option when ordering so they will be true to size. Enjoy!
