I love this project. With that said, every year, I get really excited, I get overwhelmed and I rarely finish.
This year, I even purchased the first ever, Ali Edwards (& Studio Calico) Week in the Life kit. I knew whether or not I actually completed WITL, I'd always use these fabulous products.
After much inspiration and little plan, I committed myself to taking pictures. And I did take pictures, lots of them. Buddy even asked on Wednesday, what's with all the photos? to which I replied, Week in the Life. He accepted this answer and knew it was some crazy scrapbooking thing.
Not having a plan was freeing. Not having a plan makes completely the project a little more difficult.
At week's end, I have to decide what I want to do with all these photos. What do I want to share? What do I want to say? Because unfortunately I took no notes, not a single quote, timeline, nothing.
NO WORDS is a regret.
Up until Saturday, I had no idea how I was going to wrap up this project, but I read Ali's blog post and realized I could simply answer the question, WHY? Why did I take this photo. What am I trying to capture. What do I want to remember.
And that's it….WHAT DO I WANT TO REMEMBER?
So with that question, I give you a few photos from each day.
Because I seriously need to start blogging again and need to share.
