Why I quit my Project 365. AKA: Project 52 | Week 1.

I quit. I'm done with my Project 365.... That's the project where I shoot daily and share an image from each day for an entire year. But I'm not quitting for the reason I thought I'd quit. I thought I'd get too busy, too lazy, too burned out. But really, it wound up being the opposite. I shot daily and LOVED MORE THAN ONE IMAGE. Or I'd shoot daily, but not love anything I got on Thursday, but nailed like 10 images on Friday! So, since I was already blogging images weekly, a Project 52 seemed like a logical choice. 

Added bonus: EVERYTHING is better with friends. So, I'll be having fun with a group of friends who will also be sharing their P52s every Friday. Please check out my new friend's Meredith's post here. Her image took my breath away!

So, you may see only one image per week, or you may see 20. But regardless, you'll see only my favorites from the week that sparked something in my heart. 

So.... Introducing Project 365 - Week One!


I love your blog comments! Which image is your favorite? How is 2016 treating you?

Birthday Bowling

We do birthdays pretty low-key at our house. Rarely do we throw parties and the gifts are relatively few. This morning, when Josh came home from PT, he brought presents upstairs and Kate got to open her gifts in bed! She got a doll and a few accessories that she thought we had picked out for someone else at Target last week. She was SUPER thrilled to find out today that they were for her!

Later in the afternoon, we celebrated with some ice cream cake and then met up with Kate's uncle and cousins for some birthday bowling fun! Kate lost, but didn't seem to notice. I guess that's the beauty of bowling with preschoolers; They don't care how many pins they knock down as long as they had fun throwing the ball! 

However, there was a pretty intense rivalry going on between Josh and Autumn for 1st place. In the end, he won by a few points, but only after I encouraged him to play for real and not intentionally let her win. She was not a happy camper, but at least she did better than I did!
