Photo A Day Project

I'm looking for a new project... I think... I mean I feel loyal to the group I started out with in January, mostly because I 'know' the members and we all had something in common. I just feel like I'm struggling to get a photo a day. It's hard when there is so much going on. I have some great ideas and if my kids were more cooperative I would be posting some great stuff, however, they don't want me to take pics of them and secondly they don't want to come with me when I want to go somewhere and take pictures.

The other thing is I feel like I'm struggling in general; life has been so hectic and any little time I have to sit down and do something for me feels like stolen time. For instance, right now, at this moment I know I should be doing laundry and vacuuming the house, not to mention the yard... it's a total nightmare! I don't feel happy go lucky right now but I do keep telling myself it could be worse, there are a lot of people out there a lot worse off than me. At least I exercised this morning... yep got up and walked a mile. It's a start.

So, if any of you have a suggestion for a new group, maybe a picture a week or something I'd love to hear it, and for now here are a couple of pictures I did yesterday with the kids. Syd was off to celebrate one of her friends tenth birthday, Syd and Mason have been friends since Pre-K... it is so amazing to me that they are literally growing up together and I love, love,, love this picture....



Mason has a hammock in her yard, yep, it was just too irresistible for Ash... who wouldn't want to relax here?


Have a lovely Sunday y'all !!!!

The photo of the two girls is great. I think they look like they are posing in the shape of a heart. You could draw a heart around them or put the pic in a heart-shaped frame. It would fit beautifully.
As for picture-a-day, I dropped out long ago. I still visit and have posted 3 or 4 pics recently. But I understand the time and inspiration thing.
(and my husband just hollered down, "Barb, just FYI, there are 8 clothes baskets in our room." (all clean. just need to be put away!)

Great pictures and beautiful subjects.

You are not alone! I, too, have chores awaiting and care not one whit whether they are done or not. Sometimes we just have to chill.

Enjoy your day.

ask barb why her husband had to bring the laundry to her attention instead of just doing it himself.

Id LOVE to do a pic a week. the daily thing is just too hard to keep up with. Im 100+ days behind!!!

Oh, no! I'm suffering from hammock envy! Another photo project in the works - I can't wait to see what you choose. Cheers~

a picture a day might have me running for the hills. there's the corner view, and there's soule mama's "this moment". both with less pressure.
