A year in pictures...

I'm excited to share something that I will be working on this year. It's called Project 365. I knew it would be something I would enjoy, since I love taking pictures. I'm sure everyone around me tires of me taking their picture, but that's the price you pay for being my friend. :)

Project 365 is where you take a picture every day in 2009 and write a little note about what happened that day. I'm sure by Dec 31st, 2009, my photo album will be a great testament of just how boring my life really is! ha!

I actually like this though...we forget so many things that happen throughout the days, weeks, years. Documenting the special times, as well as the ordinary times in our life is a perfect idea. For instance, January 1st is a picture of me and Alex in our pj's (which I stayed in all day and it was fabulous) reading our books, drinking coffee. I'm happy that I have a picture to remember that ordinary, yet lovely day, with my sweet husband.

Love to all,
Jill

Oooh, you should create a separate blog to post your 365 pictures! I know I would love to follow along.... of course, only if that wouldn't be creepy.

I'm so glad you are doing this... I read about it the other day and considered it for a minute then realized that I will probably never remember to take a picture each day, I can barely remember to fix my hair! :) Anyway, can't wait to see how it turns out for you! Love you! Oh, and I will mention the pony thing to Jared - I'm sure he'll think its a great idea! :)

Oh, you should've posted this before the new year! I love photography and scrapbooking and everything in between. I think this would be a neat thing to do, but now I feel behind! It's okay, I'll think of something. Great idea!
