I got a bit of joy today in looking back at my April 2010 Week In The Life Thursday post. It was fun to see what was different and what was the same.

    Happy Friday Morning Ali,

    Ok just have to start by saying HOW THE HECK DID YOU GET THE SHOWER PHOTO, REALLY YOU ROCK AND ARE SOOOOO INSPIRING!! Seriously love this one.

    I love seeing Chris in there again and Simon's striped pj's are always cute. We are getting ready for a garage sale too, it's a lot of work but the best part is meeting and talking with the families that stop by. We also put our vegetables from the garden out there and the same families come back each summer just for that alone. Good luck and have fun with yours.

    Thank you for your visit on my blog, was going to share the news with you this morning because your kids would love this idea too. It really made me feel better about our days and not so worried that this years WITL isn't as packed as last years was. So thanks for the comment and it made my day.

    I'm so glad you put Thursday of 2010 in for us to peek again, I remember that day and love it. Also made me realize I miss your quotes and they helped me along. Everyone reading this today make sure to go peek at her link, it's well worth it.

    Another question if you have the time Ali, after looking at my low amount of pictures for the week on changing my album format, not sure if there's enough to fill up each day. Since your week has been kinda slow are you changing your mind or rethinking anything now??? Thanks for the help if you can.
    Happy Friday everyone and if you need an idea to entertain the kids check out my blog at http://everydaymemorieswithprojectlife.blogspot.com I threw a Christmas in July party for my kids and we loved it.

      Not rethinking at all - the templates I'm using should still work for the number of photos I have (remember that I'm not sharing them all here - I still have more to add).

    Loving this project. My first time and will definitely be joining in again next year. My 4th day was a little bit of a lousy one - but captured it warts and all for my W.I.L album.

    I started on Saturday, so I am a little sad that the week of documentation is almost over, but I'm excited about putting it all together. Thank you so much for another year of motivating us to keep up with WITL.

    My 'week' is finished and I'm creating the final pages (posting them to my blog as I get them completed). I ran into a hitch with attitude issues, but once I gave myself permission to just do what works, I'm falling in love with the templates. Of course, your photos are SO very inspirational. :)

    Your photos are very inspiring and really making me look at capturing things i would not normally take photos of.

    I always end up with less day time photos as I keep forgetting to take photos until it is time to go home... do you have any tips? I find this experience a bit more challenging than the December Daily because I don't seem to get enough photos of kids in it except in the evening...

      I think that's pretty normal if you are a working mom :). I felt like that yesterday and since it's my reality right now I'm going with it. Remember that this project can be more about you and less about them - my albums are from my perspective and is really more a week in my life. A week in my life includes my kids and what's happening with them but it's more about what's happening with me - does that make sense?

    I love all the (self?) portraits you ve included of yourself this year!

    I started on Sunday and yesterday was my least documented day. It is harder than I thought to keep this project present in my mind while on vacation ;-) But no stress over here. It's all good.

    Particularly liked Tracey Clark's WITL disclaimer yesterday: http://www.traceyclark.com/blog/2011/7/27/week-in-the-life-tuesday.html

      Where is the linky tool for today? I loved seeing the list of of people's posts from each day. I haven't had a chance to check many of them out, but really love seeing the different and similar directions people go with their Week in the Life.
