New Year, new challenge {Project 365}

Happy NEW YEAR!!!
I have so many new photos to share (Christmas, new house, etc.), but today I am starting a new challenge!
My sweet friend, Bethany, has encouraged me to join her in a "photo a day" adventure!
Share one photo from each day of your 2012--I guess I'll call it {Project 365}

It can be someone...something...perfect and edited...simple and captured with your phone...

I am excited! I feel like I really failed capturing 2011. I used to take (and blog) my everyday/personal photos all the time. BUT I just got so busy with my business and client photos in 2012, I fell behind. So, I am ready to join in on this new adventure! Like Bethany said on her blog, I will sometimes take my photos with the 5D and edit. OR I may sometimes just snap them with my iPhone. I doesn't matter, I just want to capture our everyday life! COME JOIN ME!! Start your challenge too! It's only January 2nd! It will be fun to put the 365 photos into a book at the end of the year!


Home improvement fun with my hubby! We spent most of New Years day in Wichita, shopping for our home (shelving, towel bars, etc.). Then Mimi kept Barrett overnight, so we stayed up until 5am working!! We had so much fun, and I will remember this night forever! We sang along to Pandora. We talked about how much we LOVE our new every step of this journey has been guided by God. All along the way, we thought we knew what we wanted, but He always had bigger plans. 

We put a second coat of primer on our Master Bath. It had wallpaper, which my mom (bless her heart) peeled. The walls were in bad shape after that, so Justin patched them with sheetrock mud, sanded, and we primed. Two coats of primer and two coats of paint later...I love it! We also painted the mudroom close and gave it a makeover! Will share that later! AND we put together a shelf and bench. We had a blast, and at 4:58am, we crashed. 


  1. What a fun challenge! Can't wait to see your photo a day! :) You guys are too cute!
    When we let God lead's amazing! :) Congrats on the new house!!! :)

  2. I did the 365 challenge in 2011. I didn't miss one day. I had them on FB.
    This year I'm doing a 52 week challenge. One photo a week with a theme for the week. I enjoy doing these.

  3. First of all, 4:58?????? Oh dear me!!! I can't even fathom!!! :)

    I am so glad you are joining in on the fun with me!! I still need to investigate the link thing...

    I PROMISE you will look back and be so so so so so glad you did this. Fancy pics or iPhone pics, you will treasure them. I absolutely adore what I took the time to capture last year and am excited to dive into this again!!!

  4. This is a great challenge. I have neglected my blog photo wise...seems like life is so silly-busy I haven't enjoyed my camera like I want.

    Love the work pic! We worked all weekend on our bedroom, mudding, painting got our new bedding and I LOVE it now. I must admit, we didn't work Nearly as LATE as you two! ha ha

    Can't wait to see the before/after pics of your new looks beautiful. We drive by every Sunday on the way to church!

  5. Looking back at these types of projects are so much fun. And making it the entire year is rewarding! Good luck. I've started one of my son. I did it back when he was 2, and I adore the photo book I made from the pictures.
    Btw, I absolutely LOVE the story behind your blog title. And your little boy is so cute.


I LOVE reading comments, so thanks for stopping by :)
