This girl inspires me.
Heck...I think she inspires everyone that comes across her.
I think she is a fantastic human being.
I have never met her, emailed her, or had a cup of coffee with her...but I adore her.
I had an unexpected internet break...exactly four weeks - and I wasn't really full force before I went without it.
It was a beautiful break - put lots of things in perspective for me.
(and found lots of hours in the day - that I never knew I had!)
There are so many things I want to do - both in life and creatively.
I write in my journal almost daily - and I truly try to snap photos of all the little things.
After being offline - and then reading Ali's entry, I realized its EXACTLY what I need.
A week in the life of me...I think its the best all around thing for me.
The photos, the writing, the slice of life.
I will update on my blog daily - to stay accountable to myself - and then make an album when the week is over.
I'm excited - I truly needed this.
Its what I'm all about.
I am not the best photographer - God knows I've tried to learn the technicalities...but I have yet to master the camera. But I document the things that matter -so who cares they are imperfect?
So everyday I shall update on my day!
(which totally keeps me up to date with the ole blogarooski)
So this is today.
September 30, 2008.
Halloween is approaching...and this little dude hangs on our front door.
Julian's lunchbox. Julian the Pokemon nut. I truly, truly enjoy making Jude's lunch every morning. Its one of those "Mom" things that I find joy in. The baggies, the fresh fruit, the peanutbutter and jelly sandwiches cut out with fun cookie cutters. Sweet & Thoughtful notes. Occasional stickers. I want him to look forward to lunch and snack time - never knowing whats in there....
The cute, new phone that makes me feel like a teenager when I text. (and I'm pretty fast too - so all you young bucks BRING IT ON)
