One thing is the same about these two groups of people; they all have tons of photo boxes with pictures not in albums and tons of pictures locked in their computers.
Project Life is one of my new favorite things. I first came across it in January when a Facebook friend made a post about starting her 365 project...a picture a day. This intrigued me. But we were already into January and I thought to myself that I am already behind with my kids scrapbooks this would be in addition and I can't take on another project. Then months past and another friend told me about Becky Higgins' website. I watched her videos and loved her thought process.
It kind of falls in line with Gretchen Rubin's quote, "What we do everyday matters more than what we do once in a while." So I started taking pictures of our everyday: Shannon making pumpkin bread on a Friday afternoon, organizing our legos, place cards on our Thanksgiving table, and alligators in the bathtub. My thought process had started to change. I look at our day a little differently now.
With my calendar and camera I can document our everyday life before it is forgotten.
Sometimes simplifying your life can enhance it tremendously.
