Hello Everyone! 🙂
I have been inspired to take on Ali Edwards Challenge of Documenting the Week In My Life. I felt like its a really good way to share and document just bits and pieces of my life for my family and just for me to look back on. I USED to be really big into journaling and since getting extra busy with life, that’s fallen away a little bit, so. Here is a great snap shot of a week in my life that I would like to try to do for myself every six months to a year. Ali gives all the details of how she creates this journey at her blog which you can see HERE.
I started this over a week ago, but wanted to share and post for you all right now exactly what a week in my life includes! 🙂
I’m took over 600 photos, so I’m going to give a VERY Brief overview summary of things I did everyday for 7 days…I hope you enjoy and you feel inspired and when I am ready to scrapbook this week, I hope to share just a few things with you, however I am sure its going to take me a few weeks to even get to film anything I do with these photos 😉 FAIR WARNING :)…. Hey…. at least I am sharing something 😉 😉 lol!
So Day One:
We will start with my breakfast and just move through my day with several images of things throughout my day.
So this is day One of a Week in MY Crazy Life! I LOVE it though! I will be posting a Day in the Week Every Monday over the next few weeks 🙂 That way you know what is coming up when 🙂
Hope you enjoy and join the challenge to document what you do on a daily basis in your life! 🙂
Have a GREAT Monday and see you tomorrow for Tuesday Tutorial 🙂
You have worn me out!!! Keeping a journal like this will help with a lot of things. Remembering the best. Great job.
Busy busy busy 🙂
Thanks Megan what a great idea. I wish I had discovered this earlier in my life So much has been lost (I’m 63 ) that I wish I had captured for the future. I plan to share this with all my family and friends. You are awesome!
Megan, this looks like my life, only I don’t have the little ones, only when my two year old granddaughter comes to visit, and like others said I wish I had captired this ideal . Keep up the great work , you are doing a great job!! email@example.com
Wow! Your life and mine are so very similar. Thanks for the inspiration on documenting just one week. I plan on doing this next year when I turn 39–to document my last year of being a 30-something. This activity will definately help me get an idea of what to expect! But I look forward to the challenge!
Love the pictures but don’t envy the busyness. Did you mean to have 2 identical pictures? Or was that to indicate the repetitiveness of some activities in your life – like washing dishes? 🙂
That is so funny Meagan I was on Ali’s site last night learning about a week in my life. I plan on taking the challenge.
Great job. Sounds like a daunting task to me. Gotta check it out. Thanks.
Megan, just looking at the pictures reminds me of one of my days!!! Only thing is I’m much older and am suppose to be retired. I wouldn’t trade it for anything thou. I think I have less time then I did when I worked if that is possible. I have twin granddaughters that I now sit for while Mom and Dad work (and any other time I can get them). They are 9 mos old and rule the roost around here. My hubby and I have gotten so attached to these little darlings. But, they do keep us busy and I do share your busy life style. We think that this is what is helping to keep us young at heart. I might have to try this project. It would definitely be fun to look back on. TFS
Megan, I just shared your “journal idea” with my sister! She & as I think it’s a very cool idea. She is a lot busier than I. My life at home is not near as busy as hers. I have no children or grandchildren of my own and they don’t live near me of stepkids/stepgrandkids! Looking forward to your photos!
What a fun challenge! I think I’ll try it, too.
