365 Project: Day 5 – Coffee House

Day 5

I went to Rev Coffee tonight. I LOVE Rev Coffee. I had a meeting with my co-teacher for the yoga class I am teaching with the homeschool co-op beginning next week. I got there early with the grand plans to try and get some reading for school done. I read an entire page, realized I didn’t actually absorb any of it and decided to ditch that plan. I enjoyed my latte, called The Razz.  Raspberry and white choclate. Umm, yum. Plus, a walnut brownie. The brownie was gone so quick I didn’t catch it on camera. 😉

365 Project: Day 4 – Sour Skittles

Day 4

Today, we got to class orientation for the Atlanta Homeschool Cooperative early. Sister was sleeping, so Haden & I decided to hang in the car, eat sour Skittles and jam to some music.

The holiday break seemed long and we happy to get back to classes! I am also happy because it makes me feel like I am doing something proactive with Haden’s education, where many days now I feel lost. I guess I am still struggling with myself about what I feel like I “need” to be doing. And I know that is really just because I have to adjust my perception and my need to control. Easier said than done, I guess.

365 Project Kickoff!!!

I have made my decision! For my 365 Project, I am taking a photo a day.  Sounds so simple, right?

My goal for this project is to try and tap into my inner photographer. At this point in time… we aren’t all that in tune with each other. 😉 Each day I will take a picture that will offer a window into my life but I am going to try my best to think outside of the box here. My usual picture taking style lends more towards family snapshots of activities and while those are fabulous to have, I want to try and come at this from a more creative angle. At least on some days!

Also, I am going to use this project to learn how to actually edit photos. I seriously NEVER edit any of my photos. I am not planning anything too fancy. I will likely never take on learning something like Photoshop, but iPhoto does offer  a good bit of editing options for simplistic me and I am ready to start using them.

This blog post is where I got the idea from and it offers a lot of good ideas on how to go about doing a Photo a Day Project. – Project 365: How to Take a Photo a Day and See Your Life in a Whole New Way

I also found this one. There are lots of good ideas and links for 365 projects. – Project 365 + Other Alternatives

 

Day 1

We spent our New Years weekend in Chattanooga enjoying some family time. This picture will alway serve to remind me of our visit to Ruby Falls and the fact that it maybe isn’t the world’s greatest idea to take a cranky toodler on a long guided tour through underground caves. 😉

ONLY 364 more to go!

2011 has been a year for some of our lowest lows personally but our highest highs financially. I am happy to say that we managed to end the year  from a mostly positive place and I hope to see things stay that way for 2012. My goal for this year is to follow my instincts and follow “the happy”. I do have more defined goals for this year but I feel like to write them out would be jinx worthy. 😛

BTW, Happy New Year!

What Should Be My Project 365?

WordPress sent me an email the other day asking…

If you were going to blog about one thing for an entire year, what would you choose?

 

It highlighted  some cool blog projects from people that decided to take on a project for the past year. One guy, a big fan of soccer, decided to approach people on the street wearing soccer shirts, meet them, photograph them and then blog about them. Another person made a piece of burger artwork for every day of the year. Another blogged about 365 breakfasts. Another person blogged about people and their spaces, mainly through the use of photography.

I think you get the idea.

So, going into 2012 I would like to take on a Project 365 but I honestly don’t have a clue as to what I would like to do.

What do you think my Project 365 should be?
