Day 365....end of a project


When I started this project 365 days ago, I wasn't sure I would finish

I wasn't sure if I could....

...but I have surprised myself,
and it has been one of the best things I've done in a while.

Here are some fun facts:

59+ pictures were of food (priorities ya'll)
20 pictures were taken in my kitchen
15 pictures were taken in my dining room
(seeing a theme here?)
and 13 pictures were of feet.....mostly mine.
(I'm not sure what that tells you!)
There were many duplicates
(some exactly the same but different months!)

And as I went back through them,
there were at least 5 that I had totally forgotten about!

That is the best fact of all and the reason I am so glad I did this project. There are things that happen in your daily life that you will never remember unless it is documented....what better way to do it than with pictures?!

So, won't you join us for 2010?!
We would love to have you with us. We post on Sundays.... the whole week's pictures. Come back here and link up with everyone else and share a piece of your life, make new friends and document memories!!

Grab our NEW button (on my side bar) designed by Edie at Rich Gifts and put it on your side bar so every one knows you are participating.


But remember....there is NO pressure.
If you miss a day, week, even month, jump right back in. We all agree this should be fun, not a chore!


Happy New Year!!!!
And happy picture taking!!

I am in for 2010! I did this, but did a different take in 2009. . . 365 folks to pray for, and felt I probably should not post those on my blog. . . ready for 2010!! Loved watching your photos!

LuAnn said...

The button looks great!!! Can't wait to start this project again for 2010. 2009 was too much fun.
Thanks!!!!

Cathy said...

Okay Sara, I didn't complete 2009, but I think I'll try again in 2010. I've really enjoyed looking at your pictures all year. Love the new button too.

Happy New Year to you and your family.

Love the button, maybe 'cause our Basque teen, Amaia, is featured int he middle top pic! And, she is coming back in 2010!!! We are sooooooooo excited!
Enjoyed your Fun Facts! Great idea to analyze my photos like you did. Could be interesting!
THANKS, Sara!
I'm going to add the button ASAP!

You know what? I may have totally lost my head for doing this, but your facts inspire me to give this a try (emphasis on try). Sounds fun!

Jamie @ Six Bricks High said...

Ha...I had to laugh that so many pictures were of food. If I did it I would probably have half the pictures of food and half of a cute little grandbaby. Looking forward to another year of your pictures.

Elizabeth said...

I am totally in for 2010! I think I may do things alittle differently but hopefully I will be more organized!
I love the new button... I added it to my blog and I am ready to start :-)

Edie said...

Thank you for hosting this Sara. It really was great fun. Even though I missed a few months when life got a bit out of hand I can't believe I stayed with it almost all the way through.

Looking forward to 2010!

Edie said...

Just a note...
...I was worried when I stopped watching the girls so much that I wouldn't have anything to take pictures of but I think I can do food and feet! LOL!

H-Mama said...

59 pictures of food. Love it! I'm so glad you're doing this again. I would love to join in some time. Such a great project... to preserve for your family.

Karin said...

Hmmm...I just might join. :) I LOVE the new button. It's soooo cool!

Abiding Branch said...

I absolutely LOVE the new button! I am going to give it another "shot" (pun intended! lol)
Thank you for your encouragement this year, your prayers most of all, and providing a fun way to connect with others!! God Bless You and may 2010 be filled with all the God offers!

I'm going to try! But I'll have to post on Saturday (I'll link up on Sunday). I already do a "Sundays in Zambia" post & I don't want to have to change my button - how's that for lazy?

The DG Family said...

This is such a neat idea! I am behind but I think I will join for 2010 :D I enjoyed reading other blogs who participated in this project.
