Week in the Life 2014 | Wednesday Words + Photos

October 30, 2014


Number of Photos taken today: 144

DJ spends Monday and Tuesday with his grandparents, so for the past two days it felt super strange documenting life without him. There was no doubt in my mind that when he was back home with us that I would be taking a lot more photos.

Here's a peek at our Wednesday.

Snack with daddy.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Groceries after the dentist.

 Pumpkin patch!

Despite it being a work day, I feel like I did a much better job of photographing the day than I did yesterday. Day two, feeling great! Here's a peek into my Tuesday.

Shower time.

Number of photos taken today: 33

What a day! I had so much to do, and I'm happy to say that I was able to get the vast majority of it done, all while playing along in the #weekinthelife fun. Here's a little peek into my day:

"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week in 2014"

It was such a natural moment, the way it came together. I turned the corner and there they were, reading together. I was thankful to have my camera nearby so that I could snap the photo before DJ even realized what I was doing. These days, if he sees the camera, he comes running for it.

Things I'm Working On

October 22, 2014


I'm working on preparing for Week in the Life beginning next Monday by gathering supplies and compiling a list of photos I might like to capture, and things I want to be sure to record during the week.

I'm working on not sweating the small stuff, which is actually turning out to be quite difficult.

I'm working on being more patient with DJ and remembering that he's still so little and doesn't understand a lot of what he does and why he cannot do it.

I'm working on getting myself back into the habit of writing every day as Nanowrimo approaches. This will be my eleventh year writing, and coming off of my win last year, I'm hopeful that I can give it a good shot again next month.

I'm working on organizing my scrapbooking stash, and using up what I have before purchasing anything new (with the exception of the binder and page protectors for Week in the Life). I have so much stuff, some of which I won't ever use, so I have been organizing everything into piles and will be mailing some out to friends around the States to use. I love that nothing will go to waste.

I'm working on keeping the kitchen table clean. It seems to be the dumping ground for everything and I really can't stand how cluttered it makes the room look.

I'm working on my knitted blanket, mitered square by mitered square.

Project Life 2014 | October Two

October 20, 2014


This October 2 spread covers the week of Oct 6 - 12. A lot of cool stuff happened this week, most notably my husband's 20th high school reunion bar night, and the start of my (I really need a better name for this) happiness project.
