this is project life 2013 | week one!
week one was a fresh start — not much changed or restarted, though.
i didn’t think i’d have enough photos. and then i did. and i realize i didn’t use many extras or really any journaling. but that’s what makes me most uncomfortable about the whole thing — the words. the photos don’t put me all out on the line. i did include a little bit, and my new year’s resolutions.
we rang in the new year at my brother steve’s house and played this game called hedbandz. EP and i got chinese food at a place i’ve never taken him. it smelled like a pet store, but the tofu in garlic sauce was delicious.
we sold my baby — the 1992 honda accord. not as heartbreaking as it could have been, with my brand new 2013 hyundai sonata limited. :-) i included too many self portraits, but I straightened my hair myself for the first time!
EP and i went to his mama’s for dinner on saturday. it was more relaxed than i thought it would be. and we had delicious moonshine — it tastes, no lie, like apple pie. sunday we had a delicious diner breakfast, walked around for a little while. we had a big chat in the afternoon. but we followed it up snuggling on the couch with his puppy and starting season two of madmen.
thoughts | i’m so excited to have started the project! i think i’m referring to it as “the binder” in real life conversations. it’s too much to explain the scrapbook/no scrapbook thing sometimes. it wasn’t as hard as i thought it would be. and the weekly monday night trip to target to pick up photos might be my new favorite thing.
so far, i am loving it. i’d like to include a little more journaling next week. i love the
limitations to the layout. i think it will keep me from feeling overwhelmed. :-) no more exclamation points unless i’m quoting and something was actually exclaimed. and it was tougher than i thought to take photos of the actual binder. i’ll work on that.
I forgot I like my handwriting so much better without cursive. and I considered planning to reprint and redo the ones that aren’t perfect or that I changed my mind about. and then I decided it will be good for me to leave a few imperfections right there on the first pages. like the first scratch on a new car. it’s not perfect anymore. it’s time to just jump in and enjoy it.

about project life 2013 | project life was created by becky higgins. i was inspired by elise, and ali edwards. it’s more about documenting the everyday than it is scrapbooking, cutting + pasting. it’s sort of between private journaling + public blogging. different from photo albums [which i’ll still keep]. this is a snapshot of my whole year through daily life. click here for my introduction post.
