I only did 6 days because I had my first night away on Saturday, so I wasn’t home!

Inspired by some fabulous ladies, mainly Georgia from Documenting Delight, I’ve decided to dive head first into the 365 project.

A photo a day, for all of  2014. 2014 is going to be a big year for us, the Hubs is starting to work (like.. for money), the Imp turns two, I turn 27, we’re going to welcome another little girl into our family.. Big changes people, big changes!

So here it goes.. Week One, Day 1-7

1. Bath time at Grandma and Grandpa Lepine’s   2. Helping with after dinner cleanup   3. Waiting for Dad to come home for lunch  4. Taking a break after a naked dance party

5.  Learning to Sew with Grandma Cervo   6. iPad Time after a long night of sleeplessness   7.Tea Party with Mom & Dad

So there you have it, days 1-7 of the 365 project.. I really hope I can keep this up..

Are you doing a 365 project? Leave your blog link in the comments section so I can check it out!
