Week In The Life 2012 | Sunday Words + Photos

Week In The Life 2012 | Sunday


We've come to the end of another round of Week In The Life.

I'll admit I've felt more motivated in the past to undertake this project. But, but, but...as I round out this week I've got a really good feeling in my heart. A feeling that I needed. A feeling that I didn't really expect or don't remember experiencing to this degree in the past years I've done this project. A lot of my life right now is about creating new pathways. The act of taking on this project at this time has created new pathways and encouraged me to take a look at the choices I'm making and the choices I want to make. It makes me more aware of the possibilities and that I don't have to continue doing things the same as they've been done in the past.

I'll be taking the next few days to get my photos and words into my templates and hope to share them later this week.

Here's a look at some of my Sunday photos:

I'd love to have you include a link to your SUNDAY of words and photos here. Please link directly to your post vs. your general blog link. Thank you!

We enjoy sharing fresh monthly kits with thoughtfully selected paper and embellishments. Not only is each kit filled with the most current products available, each of our kits includes a custom Scrapbook Circle printable. We love sharing and creating with others who love preserving memories as much as we do.


SPONSOR GIVEAWAYS | I'll be going through all the sponsor giveaways from the past week and organizing them into a post today that includes all the winners. Hoping to have that all ready to go for tomorrow morning (Tuesday).

    Lovely! Thanks so much for sharing. Your home "feels" so peaceful. Just curious - what's the book you're reading? Seems to be about artisan baking. How fun"

    I love that Annna always seems to be in costume. Simon was usually in costume at that age too, right? I remember a lot of Tigger!

    I adore that picture of Anna playing basketball and those lights on the side of your house look lovely. Happy Monday - so enjoyed following you and your precious littles this past week.

    Wonderful pictures, Ali. I found a "semi-solution" to getting my boys (15-1/2 & 19-1/2) let me take their pictures...I use my iPhone. I was very surprised that they were okay with that - I'm guessing it's less intimidating than pointing my DSLR at them. You might give it a try, if you haven't already!

    Anna's princess dress is sure getting a lot of mileage! Also, I still use California Baby shampoo/bodywash on my 6yo. Have a happy week.

    P.S. Forgot to add to my post above...Thanks for sharing your week with us. Lovely. As usual, I'm inspired!

    I think we should all wear our princess dress or super woman outfit out in public. That would be great!

    Congrats on seeing things with new eyes and making new pathways!

    The picture of your daughter playing ball in her princess dress is worth the entire week of taking photos! What a hoot! And so like girls of a certain age. Thanks for letting us share your week.
    Aloha, Kate

    Thanks so much for sharing Ali. The ways in which you inspire are really more than you can know. I love that you are really LIVING life.

    You might need to start sharing recipes and cooking ventures as I see that making things from scratch is something you are doing lately. Hope that bread tastes as good as it looks (following Twitter).

    Anna + Princess Dress + basketball = classic!!

    Hi Ali :) Thanks for sharing your week. It has been lovely to see photos from around the world and to see so many similarities. Last year when I did this project I had my parents staying with us - I love that I captured those moments. When I started this year, I thought my week would be boring, but I have really enjoyed seeing how a regular work week routine is important to me. Thanks again.

    Well i did it. I have to admit I waivered a little over the last two days but I'm not beating myself up about it. First year I have given WITL a go and it was fabulous. Now I want to see the progress I make in putting the words and the pictures together. What was really fun was coming up for other layout ideas for my class with Stacy - Twelve - some of the everyday things we just kept doing was so cool that I want to use these ideas for a page on their own! Thanks so much for inviting me on this journey.
