PROJECT OBSERVATIONS | One thing I haven't really focused on this year is the collection of stuff. For me that usually translates to receipts, written notes, grocery lists, etc. I've been grabbing a few here and there but not nearly in the same quantity as in the past. I'm totally fine with that. I've loved having the stuff component in the past. This year I might just use my email archives and include some of those snippets if I need filler content when it comes to filling the divided page protectors.

    Love everything that you captured for the day. You have a nice mixture of all of the family members. That's my problem, I always seem to get more photos of some and less of others, despite my best efforts. I am doing my week in the life starting on Sunday. I had a crazy schedule this week, but it's fun to see everyone else's photos-it's making me really excited ot start!

    The weather here is getting warmer which means outdoor fun. Water + pools + kids = fun times

    Great stuff Ali! I have a kitchen question. Do you like your butcher block/wooden counter tops? Do they require much upkeep? We want to switch, but I'm NOT interested in oiling them or doing anything special to them once they are installed. Thanks!!

    Love your chalkboard wall and still enjoying your pictures every morning. I decided to start blogging my "adventure" yesterday and also breathing life back into my blog!!

    Okay, I love the picture of Anna in the sink. It made me think of my 4 month old and how much fun she will have one day doing that same thing. Also love the story about her hiding her paci-- so clever!
    Thanks for mentioning that the magnet wasn't strong enough on your chalkboard wall. Getting ready to do this same thing and will now rethink the magnet paint.

    Hi Ali,

    I love your work. I have been doing WITL since I started my journey of fertility issues with my first child. Now, we are a family of 4. :) You mentioned on Monday (i think) that you wanted to add more videos to your posts and I'd like to share my experiece with you.

    I found Picasa will convert almost any format of video (.MOI from my camcorder and .QTM from my digi cam) from their program (which is a free download) into blogger (which is what i use for WITL) with the click of the 'Sync To Web' button. It's so much less work (for me) than converting each video into something web-friendly, then adding it to my WITL blog.

    The only draw back: the vid doesn't play in the blog, when it is clicked, it takes you to the picasa album and plays from there.

    This may not be the solution you are looking for, but its what works for me and i just wanted to share. Thanks for all you do!

    I've had my in-laws staying for the last week and haven't quite got into the routine of taking photos as I would have done in past years, felt a bit uncomfortable doing so. Now I wonder whether I should start again another week or just go with what I have.

    I love seeing all of our lives on the blogs. I hop from germany to australie and back to Indonesia. I love it. Love seeing everyones take on this week. I get a lot of inspiration from it. This is my first WITL and totally enjoying it. I think I will mix it with my Project life next time.

    Anna is turning into a little girl, not a baby or a toddler any more!! How fast it happens!

    I love your photos today. Anna is soooo cute! I am amazed at the number of photos I'm taking and now my older daughter has jumped in and is also taking photos. I used to think POTD was hard but after this experience I will never find it hard not to take a one picture daily.

    Your daily moments are the memories that are captured forever. I LOVE it! We get so caught up in our daily routines, we don't remember to stop and enjoy the moments like this. Thank you so much!
    Right now, I'm stopping and thinking about what's important and have committed to stop, inhale and enjoy the moment more often! <3 it~
