It used to include a stop at the Starbucks inside Target to get me a soy chai, but I'm not allowed those anymore on my recommitment to Paleo eating.
Each week, I think I don't have a story to tell, or enough good photos. Invariably I end up printing more photos than I need and have plenty to write about. Ordinary details become worth recording when I keep up with it weekly. I love it! (Click photo for a bigger view)
|Project Life, Creath 2012, Week 4|
The last week of January was pretty run-of-the-mill. We went to Little Gym, Ella came over to play (and share a gluten-free, vegan cupcake, which was about as tasty as it sounds), and we lounged around the house. I finally made a bound book of our holiday cards.
What I've noticed while doing Project Life is that by capturing the "ordinary", I'm painting an accurate picture of our day-to-day life. Looking at the pages from the first weeks of the year, I'm reminded of stuff I'd ordinarily forget about. I think that's pretty neat.
It's also reminded me on more than one occasion to ask TJ to get a picture of Trillian and me, since I'm always the one behind the lens. I've also remembered to take my good camera with me on most outings, so I can get some nice shots if we have a chance (especially with the welcome winter sunshine we've had the past week!)
I've actually got Week 5 nearly done, but need to do the journaling and put the date marker card in. I get to use some fancy paper this week as well, to commemorate our Valentine card-making and cookie decorating adventures. It's funny how easily I can create a new habit if it's something I *enjoy* doing!
