Day 1 - New Beginnings

Hi all!  This is the start of a new year, a new blog and, I am sure, many other new beginning. I have never blogged before but I have so enjoyed reading other people's that I thought I might start my own.  Hopefully this will bring me some enjoyment and keep others updated on our day to day goings on.

The thing that prompted me to start a blog now was this project I heard of online a few days ago.  It's called Project 365.  It involves taking a picture every day for a year.  These pictures can be of anything you want...daily life, treasured objects, strangers on the street.  It doesn't matter so long as you take a picture every day.  The idea is to document your life in a way that you don't usually do, as well as improve your skills as a photographer.  I'm hoping that posting my pictures on this blog will help me to keep at it.  I also want to scrap the pictures each week and hopefully make a photo book out of them.  I want to try to post the pics a couple times each week and thus remind myself to keep on.

Without further ado, I would like to present day 1's photograph:

I know, I know, it's a little cliche (or a lot) but really, January 1st is all about midnight and the start of a new year.  Since I was starting a new project, I thought that cliche was OK.  Besides, this clock was what we picked out with a wedding gift card so in the grand scheme of things, it does have some meaning.  I kinda liked how this turned out, too.

Since this is my first post, I hope everything posts OK.  I'll learn more as I go on.  Have a great and blessed 2009!


  1. Good job!! I love the picture and I LOVE the idea of the 365 photography. Oops, already missed yesterday - how to make it up? Keep up the good work!!

  2. Great Sandra- I'm excited to have another blog to follow. :)

  3. Does this mean I can't post pics of your adorable boys anymore?! I LOVE the picture. I'm gravitating more and more to pics like that one, close ups of objects to tell the story instead of just people. Hopefully I'll learn some things from yours! Welcome to the blog world!
