Welcome to Week In The Life™ 2020.
A few thoughts on the process from today:
- I almost felt like today was a warm-up. I feel rusty with my DSLR but super happy I've chosen to use it this week. I love the practice of playing with settings and seeing what happens when I try stuff. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and I'm here for all of it.
- I reminded myself multiple times today that I don't have to scramble to get a photo of every single thing today - that whatever I ended up taking photos of over the course of the day/week is going to be just fine.
- It's quiet when the kids aren't here and I definitely want to capture that in my images. They'll be back here again on Friday and this might be the first year I have more photos on those weekend days vs. during the week.
- I felt super comfortable using the "loving" story lens today and I really enjoyed thinking of things to add to my list. I don't feel at all like I have to have photos to "match" each one of my journaling numbers to my photos. It's all of it coming together that tells the story of my day.
Here's a look at my Monday journaling (this is a printable from a download that was included with the Week In The Life™ Prep Day):
I might journal more or I might just make this be the bulk of my journaling this year for this project. When flipping back through my past albums I definitely liked when I added text to my photos so I might just do that at the time I print them out (add a bit more context or tell more of the story).
Here's a look at my day in photos:
