So loving this. Have wanted to do Project Life, but know my limitations on time and that I would just feel like a big fat failure. Your idea seems much more doable to me.

THanks for sharing the Day One app. That looks so awesome!

When I was a little girl, my grandma used to take me & my brother fishing with her and her sisters. We did that a lot. I remember the excitement of getting ready and making our lunches, which were sure... Continue reading

This picture is pretty, yes? But wait…there’s more. This picture represents something to me. It’s like a diary entry. Yes, there are beautiful landscape scenes that stir our souls. We capture sunrises, sunsets, beaches, water…things that make us sigh from... Continue reading

One day recently, I caught myself. Doing that thing that we all do. I was living in the future instead of the present. It's very embarrassing, really...what I was doing. But I will share this with you, anyway. It is... Continue reading

These are my four-legged babies. They love to sun-bathe. I love finding them like this, enjoying the sun coming through the windows. Usually, when I take out the camera and try to get a photo of them, they start wagging... Continue reading
