I uploaded about 200 photos to to Shutterfly to print recently and realized that the for about 2 months just about the only photos I took were ones while I was on the road to and from work. I have an hour commute both ways so some days, that’s the only time I had to grab that moment.
While I’m happy to have some of these photos — like the barn out on Hillsboro, or the Nashville I-65 North sign at the highway entrance — to remind me of my life here, I realized that I need to do a better job of getting out the camera when I’m actually doing stuff. In the middle of grocery shopping and running errands and at the library, etc…. I always remind myself to take the camera and then I return home without having taken one photo.
For anyone doing Project Life, you can run out of photo taking ideas fairly quickly. It is my plan this year to bring a once a month photo pictorial of the random type things I’m taking photos of to help everyone out there generate some ideas. Today was the day I was going to try and start (and as I am writing this it is still Thursday — my birthday) but something happened that stopped all other planned activities. I don’t have a real photo of it yet, but with the help of Photoshop Elements I can share this with you:
Yeah! The offer for my house finally came. It may be premature to announce, but I’m too excited to resist. We are under contract and the one contingency is the inspection which will be on Monday. My only birthday wish is already coming true!
My temporary job has been extended so I’ll be renting my own house for about 6 weeks which gives me plenty of time to pack. Come mid-March, I’ll be headed back to the sunshine! And reminding myself to take plenty of photos along the way.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you all have a fabulous (and crafty!) weekend!
