For Julie's Month in Numbers, I am stepping back in time. During the month of February, my blog has had a family history feel about it due mostly to this anniversary. While sifting through some family boxes looking for photographs for that blog post, I found a collection of old coins that fascinated my grandchildren.

In a recent post here, Alexa shared a gorgeous layout and offered the hexagon shape as a free download. It was an opportunity too good to miss. I love hexagons and I had been thinking for some time how I could use the chalkboard paper collection from Kitchy Digitals. Then it hit me that they were both perfect for this project. An added bonus is that Julie has been running a Month of Sunrays on her blog during February and, although I haven't been participating, I thought it a good idea to offer up this splash of yellow before the month runs out.
I haven't blogged as much as I had intended this month. A variety of illnesses struck most of the family for the past couple of weeks. My elder daughter broke her little toe. Her foot was blacker than the blackboard above. Both grandchildren have terrible coughs and have been off school and away from nursery. One of my son-in-law's also has the bug. I had a chest infection for two weeks but on a brighter note, my younger daughter is now on a steady 10 mg a day dosage of her steroids.
Let's hope March leaps into action and clears away these winter germs. We sure could do with some spring around here!
