On Thankfulness, and A Week in the Life

I decided to do Ali’s Week in the Life this year because I hadn’t done it for a while, and because I wanted to get back in the habit of taking pictures.  We’re 3 days in and I’m LOVING it.  So glad to be behind the “lens” of my phone, and snapping pictures throughout the day.  I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve watched Ali do it for years, because I had a trial run a couple summers ago, or because I’m in a new space this year, but something is clicking in the best possible way, and this project is making me think a lot about life right now.  Deep, I know.

When I see Ali’s daily posts, I sometimes get bummed that my photos don’t look as great as hers.  But then I remind myself that Ali has done this project in some capacity for 10 years.  Her job is taking photos and telling stories with them.  And she uses a DSLR.  Someday.

In the meantime, I’m looking at my photos from the past three days, seeing some true favorites, and realizing how thankful I am for the people in my life.

Making the bed.  Whoever wakes up (gets out of bed) last has to do it in our house, and the season is changing.  It’s about to become my husband’s job again.

Lunch smorgasbord with friends who are willing to combine whatever’s in their fridge, with whatever’s in mine.
