About this blog

Below is the reason the blog was started...a 365 project was the goal

My Shadow in Time......

I find that my days tend to blur together and at the end of a year I can only really remember the big moments and the little ones tend to get lost somewhere.  It's those little moments that combine to form who we are and what we leave behind.  I often forget to appreciate each day that I have and I forget to reflect on the beauty of life's simplest moments.  Those moments are why I am starting this blog.

This year I will be taking at least one picture a day to represent whatever did or did not happen.   It will be a photographic project 365. I don't have a theme planned and hopefully the lack of a theme will not be my demise.  I just want to simply have a reflection of what each day meant even if it is random or rather insignificant.  Hopefully some pictures will be breathtaking and awe inspiring but I imagine most will be ordinary and some even mundane but that's life.  It's not always beautiful and exciting and sometimes it lacks thrill.  I ask ahead of time that if you follow my blog you forgive me those days of mundane distaste and hold out for those few days that have that certain spark.

The blog today- 01/14/2012

I just finished  organizing the blog into tabbed categories to bring a little more organization to the new year.  I'll see how they work out for me but I wanted a tab to organize different aspects of our lives that I post about.  Here is the breakdown:

  • Random DAY's- I needed somewhere to put everything that doesn't fit anywhere else.  Also somewhere to put all the posts from the 365 project.
  • HoliDAYs and BirthDAYs- I like to reflect on these often so it's nice to have them in a single spot that I can scroll through.
  • Baking and Making- This is something I have always done but in the last few months Ava has really taken a bigger interest in helping.  I find it's also a great way to teach her simple math skills like counting and measuring.  Not to mention being a great way to bond as Mommy and Daughter.  We plan to share our baking fun more often. 
  • Learning Fun-  I have always tried to make sure to teach Ava and do simple activities throughout our day.  Now that she is 3 I find it's important to work on the basics and she really likes all of our activities.  I'm hoping this section will be a big part of the blog this year.
  • Photography Fun- My hobby which was part of the inspiration for this blog.  I wanted somewhere to post specific photography posts without making this a photography blog.  
  • About the blog- what you are reading now :)
So there you have it....our Day family blog.
