this or that thursday: a day in the life

Ali Edwards issued an invitation this week to join her in documenting a day in your life on Wednesday, February 8th. All you had to do was commit to taking notes and photographing the course of your day.  I decided to join in and be deliberate about documenting the happenings of a typical day. All photos were taken with my iphone and edited with instagram.


So here's what some of Wednesday looked like...
This was a fun project. I'll be printing out my collage to include as an extra page in my project life album for this week.  I think I'll try to do it all over again a few more times this year. Check out Ali's blog for lots of inspiration on documenting everyday life. She is a wonderful source for creative ideas and tips.



What did you shoot this week? I hope you'll join in today and share whatever that might be! Here are the rules...
  • submit the url of your blog post, not your home page
  • link up a photo that was taken by you
  • include a link back to my blog in your post (you can use the button or a text link if you prefer)
  • visit a few other blogs and leave some comment love 
Okay, just link up below!

  3. Neat collage of your Wednesday. I had to giggle over the first one of your dog at the window. That's where my dog always is. Only she puts her nose right up against the glass.

  4. Deb,

    I love this and your project life. I hope to start working on project life when I am done with my 365 in a week or so. You do such a great job at getting pictures of your boys...I hope I can do it too (of my boys:).

    I love this meme! it's so low key and relaxed. . .I think that's what makes it so fun. Uhhh, unless I'm doing it wrong. If I am thanks for not telling me. :) LOL!!!

  16. I think Day in the Life photos are so much fun. I did it last year and had the hardest time picking which photos to keep (too many memories attached to each). LOL It looks like you had a fun day.

  17. I loved seeing your daily photos on Instagram yesterday. So much fun! I keep planning to do the 10 on 10 again, but somehow it's hard to do. But it's tomorrow so I'm hoping I can get it done!
