NUMBER OF PHOTOS FOR SUNDAY | 63
I love Sundays.
Sundays are for hanging out.
Sundays are for taking a little extra time over that hot cup of coffee.
Sundays are for stocking up.
Sundays are for organizing.
Sundays are for giving thanks.
Sundays are for choose-your-own-lunches.
This Sunday included documentation.
Sundays are for quiet times in the afternoon for reading or working in a work book or maybe taking a nap.
Sundays are for long bike rides.
Sundays are for swimming.
Sundays are for taking care of things.
Sundays are for family.
As Sunday night comes to a close around here I’m feeling calm.
I’m ready to be released from the constant thinking about documentation and get back into my regular flow of photos and words.
Obviously, I love this project but by the end I’m ready to wrap it up.
I’m thankful for this project. There are so many things that are the same and so many things that are so very different from year to year. Reflecting on that and seeing the passage of time is always something I enjoy and look forward to from year to year.
I hope you had fun this past week. I hope you didn’t make it too complicated. I hope you learned something about yourself. I hope you saw something special and found something to celebrate in your everyday.
SHARE YOUR SUNDAY HERE
I’m looking forward to this week of bringing it all together.
The process of gathering your content is one thing. You’re busy living and busy trying to remember to use your camera and get it all written down.
The process of actually creating something with all those photos and words is where a lot of the magic happens. I always learn a few more things about myself as I go back through the photos and read back to myself the things I wrote down and see them all together in one place. There’s something amazing about the compilation of those seven days – no matter how they went for you or your family. I so look forward to beginning this next phase of Week In The Life.
I’ll be back in a couple days with more information about my process for taking the collected content and putting it all together in an album, including a video tutorial for working with the layered templates. And in case you missed it, here’s my basic design plan & supplies for 2011.
