365 Photo-A-Day Challenge!

Okay, I was flipping through my Creating Keepsakes magazine and found a 365 photo challenge. You are to take at least 1 photo everyday. The intent is to scrapbook these photos, but you could also choose to put it in a blog or even email daily (or weekly)...the point is to capture moments in your life. I think it would be VERY interesting to look back on it in a year to see how I have spent my time. It's a daily diary entry! I'm all over this project. So far, I have been able to take a photo everyday.....it's really not as difficult as it sounds. At least I know that I've got my battery charged and a backup battery ready to go as well as a spare memory card.....and hopefully, if anything, I can't say that I missed a photo opportunity because my battery was dead or my memory card was full.

Here's some cool links:

Wow, it was so nice being able to JUST WATCH TV....I mean REALLY WATCH. No interruptions, no whining and fighting, no "mommy" repeatly in my ear until I answer......wow. Very cool. I just needed 1 day of this and I was RECHARGED!
