52 weeks of my girls

So besides my emotional state putting a damper on my blogging, I also started having a hard time coming up with topics. 

I've been thinking a lot recently about some things I want to do this year on my blog. 

Last year I attempted a 52 week project on my photo blog.  I made it through 35 weeks.  Life got in the way and I also starting feeling pressure to get a photo.  The group I was with had a theme each week and although you were not required to follow the theme I chose to from the beginning and wanted to keep it that way.  Well, they started getting kind of difficult and I was stressing to come up with something each week.

So this year I want to make it a bit easier for myself and a bit more meaningful.  I was looking through pics from last year for a project I was considering for a Christmas gift and realized I had very few pics of my kids in 2011!!  That made me sad. 

My oldest will be off to college in about a year and a half.  I want to start making the most of that time until she leaves.  So I decided this year I will do a 52 week project of my girls. 

Even though it's a photo project I'm choosing to do it on this blog because it's my family, my life. 

The first week will be Jan 1-7.  So at some point during the week I will post a photo of my girls.  I haven't decided if it will be a specific day of the week.  Probably not because it will depend on the timing of the photo each week.

So feel free to join me and share a link if you do.  If you don't have kids, use your spouse, your pet, yourself....self portraits are always good!
