a week in the life

So this Ali Edwards project is all about documenting. Basically you document a week in your life through photos and words. She posted this quote by Anna Quindlen. And I love it.

"..but the biggest mistake I made is the one that most of us make...I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of the three of them sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages 6, 4, and 1. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in a hurry to get on to the next things: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less."

Since I have a little break from school, I figured I'd give it a try. I'll be putting all my words and photos in a mini book...but I'm going to try to update this blog with some of those words and photos throughout the week.

Check this out if you want to play will be really really fun! :)
