A Day in the Life!

Day in the Life 11.9.13

After my last post, I just couldn't wait to finish putting this page together! Ever since I got started in this whole Project Life business I would browse blogs and pages and occasionally would see mention of "A Day in the Life" - a lovely idea from Ali Edwards in the blogging/scrapbooking world.

It's another idea of something to scrapbook. You tote your camera around all day and take pictures of the "everyday." You don't have to do something special on the "Day in the Life," the whole idea is for years from now to look back and see how life and your routine really was at a particular point in time.

I had so many pictures that I didn't really add much text (other than the times) but it's still lovely! I thought about adding in another insert of just text for the day but honestly, I probably won't. Most pictures are self explanatory.

I, of course, had to get Mr. 246 involved otherwise there would be no pictures of me at all in our scrapbooks. So there were a couple times I had to say, "Hey, come take my picture of me doing this really mundane thing!" and it felt a bit silly but I am happy to be included.

Here's the back page:

Yes, I already broke out the Christmas decorations. I just couldn't help it. I am excited! As a kid I would literally listen to Christmas music all year round. I just love Christmas. Last year I kept our tree up until March/April because I had such a great Christmas season I never wanted it to end. (There may have been a slight bit of laziness in leaving the tree up, but not much, I swear!)

I really enjoyed the whole process and I'm glad I have a record of this random Saturday in November, 2013. Years from now Luna can look through the scrapbooks and see what she was up to on a normal day. And I think that's really neat.

 I think I'll definately do this project again. Maybe make it a monthly thing? We'll see how busy I get. Haha. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Ah, this is so awesome! I love the way the time stamps look on the photos, and I love the little tests scattered throughout. Luna is so cute!
