Project 365

ok, i know it has been a horribly LOOOOOONG time since i blogged, but i have a great excuse… 6 kids, the last 2 twins. nuf said!

 

well, those twins are now 13 months old and i lament at the goobs of stuff that i have not documented of our small little lives since they entered the picture.  if i think about it too long it makes me sick to my stomach… so i won’t dwell on that.  instead, i look to the future…

 

i have embarked on a HUGE undertaking, well, it is huge for this busy mom of 6.  this busy mom who used to take pictures like they were going out of style. this little mom who once started a very teeny, tiny photography business only to be brought to an abrupt halt at the news of twins growing in her soon to be large tummy.  this mom who has not wielded her camera near enough in the last 13 months (i’m getting that sick feeling in my tummy right now)! 

 

all of this has been mulling around in my brain;  how i need to document our lives like i used to, how i have missed so much of what we have done (and believe me there have been HUGE changes since i last posted, HUGE), how i have forgotten how to use my camera, how much i love taking pictures, how i used be an awesome photographer (hehe), how much i love to go back and read my blog and laugh at all the stuff that i otherwise would have forgotten had i not written it down, how this all needs to change!

 

i found the solution in Project 365!  i’m sure you have heard of it before! it’s been around for some time now.  in short, i will take at least one photo a day, plain and simple!  no themes, no restrictions, no rules.  just pure photography of whatever!

 

i am excited and scared. it is a big deal!  i will be carrying my camera just about everywhere with me.  capturing whatever i want to.  then i will share, at least, one of these photos from each day here on my blog.  i will add little tidbits, or big tidbits, of my life.  in this way, i will solve many of my concern that i mentioned above.  i will NOT be blogging everyday, but i will blog at least once a week the pictures from each day of that week.  it may be more often than that, but i hope to blog at least once a week so i don’t get too behind. of course, things happen, so i will be flexible.

 

so, there you have it!  i started on january 1st and so far i am 6 for 6!  not bad for a girl who was gotten VERY rusty and out of the habit of taking pictures!

i am excited to see what happens to my photographic abilities in the next year, but i am even more excited to start writing my history… AGAIN!

 

--------------------

and while i am at it i think i should update my blog header to include my other 3 children and the photos on my sidebar to include a current family photo with our twins…

ya think??!!

 

i’ll work on that…
