I'll be taking a photo for each day of the year and posting it here. I'll be looking to shoot daily life, big events, little events, odds and ends, ones I love, favorite things, and beauty in the ordinary. So if you see me pointing my camera at you, smile! :)

Day 365

365 pictures in 365 days. Wow. I can honestly say that I took a picture every single day this year. I'm shocked. I half-heartedly started the project and thought I'd be doing well to get to March. But then I got really into it. What a fun way to document life. And a really good way to force me to use my camera (especially early on in the year- it's hard to know what to take pictures of when it's just you, your husband and your dog). I compiled a few of my favorite shots from the year on my other blog. Go check them out. But now, one more photo- number 365 of 365. I was thinking that I needed to come up with something really great or profound. Well I wasn't thinking about it too long and what I came up with isn't profound at all. But it is the perfect end to the year and to the 365.......
Drinking mocha in a snuggie with good friends on New Years Eve. And likely toasting to the end of Project 365. It was fun while it lasted but this year my goal is to want to pull my camera out and capture life with feeling- not just pulling the camera out because I have to. We'll see how that goes! :) For everyone starting the 365 in 2011, have fun with it!

Day 364

Look, ma- no socks! Can you believe that it's December, it's Iowa, and it's really warm out?! (I'm not exactly sure how warm it got to- I'm on break and haven't watched the news or checked in with the real world all week- but it's really warm!) And all of our snow is gone which means no sledding with the boys tomorrow. I heard (okay I saw it on facebook) that the weather is supposed to get bad again so we'll definitely take today as a blessing!

Day 363

Other than the actual taking of photos- I sat in the basement at this desk pretty much all day. I edited, scheduled, replied to emails, etc, etc all day long- and still have a lot of catching up to do! I am so thankful that my 'real' job has these breaks throughout the year or I'd never been caught up! (As if I ever am anyway.....)

Day 362

Some friends came over for the (late) Iowa game. R&I were cheering for the Big 12 team but our friends were 'behind' the Hawks. In the 'tail end,' the Hawks pulled it off. Lucky Hawks.
PS- Yes we had another round of "Birthday cake." :)

Day 361

I'm seriously terrible at getting pictures of life lately! Maybe my new year's resolution can be to do a better job of it. Once again, my 365 photo was taken at the end of the day (just a couple minutes ago actually) as I realized I forgot to take a picture of anything today! Our good friends (the P family!) was over tonight. We hadn't seen them since before Gabe's birthday (forever ago) so I slaved in the kitchen all day and made him this birthday cake- unless his brother happens to be here tomorrow and I pull it out tomorrow saying I made it just for his birthday.
In case you were taking me seriously (though it is day 361 so by now you should know better), neither of those scenarios are true. My SIL brought the cake over and I'm trying to pull it off as my own. Just like I did with her rolls. :)

Day 358

Mo talked about candles at church all day. She kept asking if she was going to get to hold a REAL candle this time.

Day 357

R's last day of work for the year. We headed south to beat the snow that was forecasted to come in later that night. It didn't show up for another 24 hours which meant we were able to drive to pick up our nephew then niece after school. We even got to Maddox's school in time for the Christmas party. Lucky us. :)

Day 356

I was off work, R was still working. I had a day of appointments and errands. Unfortunately, I took my book out of my purse so my day of waiting on appointment after appointment got really boring- thus the feet photos of the day.
