Project 365

Starting with January 1st, I embarked on a year-long scrapbook project where I plan to take a photo a day, write a little bit about it, and stick it in a photo sleeve in an album. The goal is at the end of the year, I'll have a pretty good representation of our day-to-day lives around here.

Once per week I'm going to aim to post the photos and notes for the week. I'm sure I'll get behind, skip weeks altogther, etc. but hopefully it'll all add up to something pretty cool in the end.

Here's week 1


On January 1st we were in Michigan having just arrived 2 days before. It snowed the night before and Jim was out early clearing off the driveway. This is his once yearly ritual. He puts on his dad's old hunting jacket, his mom's gloves, and his not-made-for-snow boots and gets to work.


January 2nd was the Fuja family holiday gathering. There 20 of us for dinner! My sister was also in town from North Carolina and came to the Fuja's as well. It was great to spend a couple of days with her.


On January 3rd, Jordan and I met my sister and some extended family (Loralee Johnson, her daughters Christa and Michelle and grand-daughter, Hunter) for lunch at Somerset Collection mall. I was bummed that I had not brought my camera. It was great to see all of them for the first time in several years. On the way out, Jordan and I bought a couple of these yummy gourmet carmel apples. I took a picture of them once we got back to Jean's.


The snow softened up enough to make snowmen! This one looks much better than the puny, little one we were able to make in Kingwood.

Since this was just a partial week, that's it for this post. Here's to a great 365!
