Project Life Week 2

Happy Monday friends,

What a full weekend we had here.  Friends, sushi, football, shared meals, ice skating, working, church.  Feeling loved, and oh so very blessed.  I'm still not great at remembering  to take photos during all.  Really hoping to get better at it as the year goes on.  I've been using an App for my iPhone called Momento, that's been really handy for documenting moments in our days  and weeks.  It's pretty great actually it automatically draws any info you've shared on Twitter or Facebook, or  Instagram right into it's calendar.  It also allows you to keep notes that are important to you for that day, and upload photos that go with the day also.  So, if I forget to take a photo to serve as a memory I simply 'create an event' in Momento to remind me of it, when putting together my Project Life for that week.

For this week I decided to use two different style page protectors.  I had several photos, only a little time,and there really wasn't much out of the ordinary that had happened during the week, so quick and easy was what the album called for this week. 
You'll notice that not all the pictures flow in the same direction.  Normally that would drive me crazy.  I've decided not to sweat the small stuff with this project and  concentrate on why I'm doing it, and stick with that theme as I assemble my album.  The point of it all is to recognize, remember, and cherish, the moments in between the big events.  The fact that not everything is match-matchy, and that we're going to have to cock our heads from one side to the other from time to time, and the fact that some pages will just be plain boring is NOT the point, and will have zero lasting effect on how we enjoy the album in months, and years to come.  As long as I keep reminding myself of these things, I think I'll be able to see this project through to the end.

Thanks for peeking in to my corner of the world today,

I wish I could comit myself to doing a project like this, but I know I would quit after three weeks *lol* May be another time? I have taken a photo a day on occational weeks, but that's it. I don't think my life is boring, it's just that I forget about the details....
I'm crossing my fingers for you on the CS call. I would love to see you on their DT, I think you would be a great addition!
