When thinking about starting a new 365 day project this year, I was not sure what direction to take. I have tried the 365 photo project many times and could never complete it. Along came this inspiration! This is exactly what makes sense to me this year. A way to express daily gratitude and take some pictures (when I feel like it!)
My plan for this little book is to compile everyday moments (good things), daily gratitude, photos, and quotes. A little bit of a simple mixed media journal I guess.
Here I compiled a memory I want to remeber with a new recipe that we tried one day for dinner. I used some old scrapbooking supplies that I had lying around to make the page a little different than just writing straight on the page.
I am super excited about this little project! Check out GypsyForest if you want to follow along.
I have noticed that many others around the blogosphere have been posting year end reviews. Since last year was a year that bought our family so much pain, loss, grief, and sorrow I have decided to forgo reflecting and instead focus on the year to come instead. I don't have many resolutions this year but I do have a word.
I want to feel more comfortable in my home. I want our home to reflect us as a family; our beliefs, values. I would like to only surround ourselves with things that are beautiful and have meaning to us. Everthing else be gone.
I want to work on my home keeping skills, spend more time at home instead of out and about, cook nourishing healthy meals for our family, become more friendly towards the earth and perfect our rhythm.
This is where I am at now.
I can see 2011 as a year of comfort. Lot's of time spent as a family reading, baking, learning, and creating together. Taking nature walks close to home. Planning and planting our first garden together. Beautifying our surroundings.
