Week In The Life 2011 | Friday Words + Photos

NUMBER OF PHOTOS FOR FRIDAY | 98

Before this week began I'd intended to focus more on the words this year. As it unfolded I found that for me it was easy to rely on the Daily Sheets for basic documentation and I actually wrote less than I might have without the sheets. That said, it will be interesting to see what happens when I go through the process of bringing it all together next week. It might be that by having the basic documentation on the Daily Sheets I'll be prompted to tell more stories because I have more starting points.

Or maybe for this year the Daily Sheets will be enough.

Katie and the kids adventured to the coast today and she took a bunch of photos along the way. She's been awesome throughout this whole week writing things down and taking photos.

    I think this is the first time I am seeing a photo of Katie! Great idea to include the care-giver in this adventure. I love that photo of Anna in front of the red door.

    What a blessing Katie is for your family. It is so apparent that your kids love her, and that she loves them too.

    That posed picture of Anna by the front door is too adorable. My favorite. You capture so many random and candid moments it's refreshing for that little pose!!!
    Thanks for sharing your life with us!

    Love you pictures. I can't believe I am still taking part in this, even though some days have been a little slower (with less pictures and less documenting) than others.
    I was wondering, do you edit any of your pictures? Adding maybe a little extra color here & there?

    I have to say I love the daily sheets you made this year. They have really helped me document things better and have everything in one place. In years past, I have had little notes everywhere. Thanks again for this project, Ali.

    Love this day of your photos. Sweet Shoppe Designs is new for me, but definately will check them out. The colors & design on the tag layout really caught my eye/interest! Thanks, Ali.

    This is my first time doing WITL, but unfortunately this week didn't work for me. I am feeling a little sad that I'm not in on the excitement! I'm going to start in a couple weeks, and in the meantime, I am so much enjoying soaking it all in as you post it. I can't wait to start mine! And hopefully I don't feel too lonely while I'm doing it on my own!

    Love the beach pictures. I'm in Southern California and the beach isn't warm either! The sun does not even come out til noon at the coast most days, unusual for July.

    The pic of Anna in front of the door is a KEEPER.

    Do you print your WITL layouts in glossy or matte finish? Thanks.

      I can go either way - I think last year I did glossy.

    Is that Lily running out to meet Simon? It's lovely to see her.

    Those pictures from the beach are so lovely. You're lucky to have an accomplice :) I'm realizing that my records are very much from my point of view and there are things that I'm not there for that I miss.
