Last year I remember seeing lots of mamas I follow on the internets participating in a weekly project documenting their children every week for the entire year. I clicked around a bit over the weekend and finally traced it back to Jodi of Practicing Simplicity (I have been out of the blog loop for-ever!). So here we are, almost the first week of 2014 has passed, and just in time I’m starting.

I’m excited to have a little project for this blog and one that makes me use the big camera once a week. I’d love to turn this into a tiny photo book next January. We’ll see if I can stick with it. I will probably always be a bit behind, but I will do my best.

I’d like to think that this will keep me focused on what’s important for reals, vs what appears to be important on the internet. Which is kind of weird since I’m posting on the internet. But it’s going to be real life, you know? The stuff that has always been interesting to me, before everything had to be perfectly styled and professionally photographed and Pinterest worthy. Don’t get me wrong… that’s part of my job too, but it’s not my *life*. I’m going to try my best to remember that in 2014.

Anyone else joining in?

    Yes! I’m going to do this thanks to this very post. What a great idea and a reasonable goal every month. Since #2 came along 18 months ago, our family blog is lucky to be updated once a month. Our family blog isn’t public but if you are interested in seeing it, I’ll send you an invite. : )

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    oops, reasonable goal every *week* not month. was that my subconscious sneaking in there?

    These are gorgeous – I was excited when I saw you mention this over on Instagram.

    I’m starting too. You Are My Wild was my main motivation, and I really just want want to get out of the habit of always picking up my phone for personal pics rather than my camera just when I can be bothered!

    I have a failed 365 behind me (the commitment!) but this should be much more do-able…?!

    I think I’m going to do it too! Thank you for the inspiration and the “real life” approach.
