Handwritten titles - go for it

I had a lack of mojo yesterday and was frustrated.
I forgot all about this page as I try to add them to my album immediately.
When I was adding another page to the album I found this one.
Geez. Talk about oldheimers. 
Love this photo of Connor and Christopher and wanted to make it special.
It was also Christopher's birthday on the 30th and wasn't I surprised.
Even after I had been warned by my calendar notifications for a few days in advance.
Sigh. 
Heavy Sigh.
Love the Studio Calico and bits and pieces of Basic Grey
and Pink Paislee AND Simple Stories.
I wanted the title to be simple so I handwrote their names and
called it a day.
I have a love/hate relationship with my handwriting.
When its not important - my writing rocks (say that 3 times fast)
and when I put it on a page - my writing stinks.
I decided to roll with it anyway.
Whenever I find handwriting from my ancestors, the first thing I do is swoon.
And then I felt so thrilled to have that connection.
Back in the snail mail day, I couldn't wait to get mail from family
and friends and I would always recognize their handwriting
without looking at the return address.
Always and it never failed to thrill.
NOT ONCE, NO NEVER have I ever said 
OMG...their handwriting stinks.
It never occurred to me. 
Because to me it was beautiful. 
So I decided to throw caution to the wind and hope somewhere
down the line, my kids will recognize my writing and be 
thrilled too. Not only that it totally worked on this page.
Therefore, in addition to handwriting your journaling as much as you can,
-----go for the title as well.
