A Week in Your Life

As I was hopping from blog to blog the other night, something caught my eye. The queen of crafty, Ali Edwards, was talking about documenting a week in your life through photos and words. I don't know why, but this really interested me. Maybe because I love photography and when I don't have my camera, I feel kind of naked. I'm always pulling it out for pictures of the kids and their sports and when Reagen has a cute little bow in her hair. Never to just document life in general, my life. So guess what I have committed to do for 7 full days? 


This isn't easy because I am really good at starting things and not so good at finishing things, but I'm doing this and I would love for some of you guys to do it, too. Don't think that you don't have enough to document, snap pictures of what you have for dinner, playing on the computer, your messy kitchen, potty training. 

I keep my camera out all the time so that I can see it and remember to take pics. I even took it to work today. The pictures aren't all great or real interesting, but my life isn't always real interesting either. I've kept a notebook out, too, so I can jot things down that I want to remember. I think it will be fun to look back in 10 years and see a whole week of our lives. Here is the link for Ali's website and more ideas if you want to try this. I will try and post some pictures tomorrow. My plan is to get the whole week in a little album, eventually. 

I have completed a few days and it is actually turning out to be a fun little project. I hope you guys will try it and share...all of you.

I saw this the other day too and was interested, but I haven't been motivated enough to start it. I think I'm waiting for a week that seems exciting enough to warrant documenting- that could happen maybe never.

I read this too and thought it sounded fun. Next week, yeah, next week for sure. I am excited to see some of what you've done. Maybe it will motivate me!

I'm seriously tempted....it will be incredibly difficult, but I think I'm going to give it a try.
