It's official: I'm still in love with Project Life.
Why? Well, namely because I want a record of daily life and this seems to be by far the easiest way to do just that.
I'm planning more scrapbook pages in 2014. I am. Really. But I've been trying to knock one out for the past week, and yet sitting down to do Project Life? It's done in 30 minutes and I move on with my life.
I'm just sayin'.
Here are my pages for Week Two.
Ahhh. White space. If you listen, you can almost hear the pages breathing.
This weekend, Aidan was in her room putting some make up on and I grabbed my DSLR to shoot some portraits of her in her space. How I wish there were portraits of me at 17 in my room. Honestly. I love this idea so much. Shoot people in their rooms.
Plus, I love that girl. It's crazy. She's not going to live here next year. As happy as I am for her blazingly bright future, I don't know what it will be like to not see her everyday. I've been experiencing some real sadness when I connect to this. Big deep mama breath. I'm working through it.
I included an awesome shot Dan took on his phone (upper right, antique store). I want to include shots from the whole family, not just my own perspective. Note to self: take a shot of Dan. It appears he doesn't live with us in 2014 and I'm pretty sure he's still here.
I'm still giving myself permission to do single pages if that's what's called for.
It's all about the do-ability factor. My favorite card this week is a simple list card (part of my Right Now card set):
Just a simple list of verbs and who is doing what. Only trouble is, Cole and me? We have the same initials. I figure we'll know who did what. I'm pretty sure he's the one playing Xbox. But you never can be too sure.

And that's all I wrote for Week Two, 2014.
