project life 2013 : weeks 3 – 4

February 13, 2013

Thanks for all your comments and encouragement on my last post. Each one meant so much to me. I’m feeling a little better about things and I know it will keep improving with time. But now on to Project Life. I’m playing catch-up right now (what else is new), but I’m still loving the whole process. It’s therapeutic for me.


I relied heavily on my notes for this spread because the weeks have been blurring together. I’ve been tweaking my note-taking process so I’ll have a separate post on that soon.


Week 3:

This was the rough week where Meredith was throwing horrible tantrums every  night and we were just doing what we had to do to get by. My niece turned one and we celebrated her birthday. We took some family walks because it was one of the only things that calmed Meredith down. My mom had a birthday, and I made mother/daughter friendship bracelets.


Loving black and white photos these days.


Oh David, I guess it’s a good thing you’re not up-to-date on women’s fashion. :)


The walks were one good thing that came out of Meredith’s fussiness.


Week 4:

I took a day off work to take Meredith for her 18-month checkup. I used the opportunity to have coffee with a friend while my mom got some grammy time in. I had a sinus infection that just wouldn’t go away on its own. Meredith had returned to her happy self, the weather was beautiful, and for the most part it was a pretty fun week.


This is probably my favorite pocket and one of my favorite photos recently.


I included some highlights from this post, and thought the close-up of her face went well with it. I just want to smoosh her.



Look at her little legs hanging down!


There were a bunch of little things from this week that I didn’t have photos for, so I did a “week in review” card. I did these every week last year, but I like this approach better.

On to the next…

    From Mindy:

    I am so impressed that you keep up with this every week…Meredith is going to LOVE flipping through this someday. So cute. And the tunic/jeggings…haha…sounds like my R. His response would’ve been, “…blink….blink…”

    From Sarah:

    Do you have any tips of taking photos of your pages without a glare? Also, I guess I need to do more closeups! I’m posting my first 2 weeks tomorrow, although I am still missing a few pictures!

    From kapachino:

    I can’t always avoid all the glare, but I try to take photos of my pages with indirect natural light and that seems to help a lot. I usually have to move the camera all around though to find the best angle, and sometimes I have to move the album to different places in my house.
