So I might be a little crazy for this but I am finally committing to doing a 365.
As in one photograph a day for 365 days.
One whole year.

So, it's official... I have already started this journey.
I have thought about doing this for about a year now and all I needed was a little, tiny nudge.
And really,  I almost take at least one photograph a day already anyway.
But not quite and that's the part that counts.

I am excited about this for  a few reasons...
* I think the timing is perfect. I just had my birthday last week so it seems like a
 great time to start. I can look back at this whole year in pictures on my birthday next year.

* I have a friend that I know will inspire and encourage me to keep going.

*I need this to push me into really, truly learning how to use my camera.

* I just realized  the other day that this time last year I started this little blog of mine.
When I look at my photos from one year ago I feel like I have grown and improved quite a bit.
I can't wait to see what this year brings as far as improving my skills even more
and learning more about photography, my camera...and myself.
So, wish me luck!

This morning I am sitting here drinking super-hot coffee and eating toast with apple butter.
I am so happy the weekend is here!
Although there are many, many things we should be doing around here this weekend,
 instead we are headed down to the Cabin for the night.
I really need to get packing.
It's been a while since we have been down there so
we are all excited and the weather is cooperating,
it should be perfect sleeping weather.

*        *        *
The first full week of Kindergarten was a success.
When asked how the first week went Wyatt says; "great" or "fantastic".
I must say, I am so relieved to have that week behind me.
Much more on that later though  along with pictures of my little big guy.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
I'm looking forward to fresh air, walks in the woods and being unplugged.
How about you?


  1. all i needed was that little nudge from maegan, too. i'm so excited to begin this project with bloggers like you who i know and enjoy reading! what a fun group project.
    i'm so glad to hear that kindergarten was a success. enjoy your weekend, friend.

  2. Good Luck! I have a lot of admiration for people who commit to this kind of project!

  3. breakfast sounds awesome. super-hot coffee and apple buttered toast? yum. can i come over?? please??? :)

    the 365 is a great idea! sweet!

  5. Good luck with your new adventure!! You'll do fabulous, and I can't wait to see where your photos take you.

  6. i think this is great! i tried to do a 365 beginning in january and petered out half way through the year. but before i did i could see my photography skills really change. maybe i should try to start up again? maybe you and feather would help to keep me on track...that accountability thing again. hmmmmm.....

  7. Good for you!

    I'm part of a 365. I love it. I know I'll appreciate the little snippets of mundane at the end of the year.

  8. Good luck - I'm so looking forward to watching your journey. It's going to be incredible.

  9. oh my gosh, those balloons!!!

    We took a walk in the woods today and it was perfect--and the subject of my first 365 picture; I'm joining in the challenge, too. Looking forward to seeing your beautiful and inspiring pictures as we go!

  12. I think those are four very good reasons for doing the photo challenge although I for one think you are already an amazing photographer. I look forward to seeing a photo every day. That is wonderful that Kingergarten was such a success for your little man. A weekend at a cabin in the woods sounds just wonderful. I love the balloon photo.

  13. I can't wait to see your photo a day. What a fun idea! Your photos are amazing! I'm glad the first week of Kindergarten went so well. :) I hope you enjoyed your weekend at the cabin.

  14. Can't wait to see what you post each day! I started my photo blog with the intention of taking and posting a photo a day, but I fell short. Maybe I'll try it again sometime in the future!

  15. It is great to know some of you are (or might!) joining in on this journey....BUT, I won't be posting a picture a day, I think i will probably post more photos but I can't commit to every day. You can always see more photos on my Flickr though! : )
    Thanks for the encouragement!

  16. ooooooooh this is so fun! I just love your photographs so I cannot wait for this! That balloon shot is gorrrrgeous!!!

  17. Good for you! I tried to do it starting on Jan 1, but I couldn't keep up. I checked out your friend's blog, thinking I might restart, but she's hard core and doesn't want anyone who can't keep up.

    Enjoy your journey! You're already a fabulous photographer. :)

  18. will be checking in lots...love your photos...


leave me a comment...you know you wanna.
