At the end of last year, I quietly chose my One Little Word for 2014... thrive. 2013 for me was all about just making it through day by day - surviving - and as I got ready to turn the page over to a new year I was feeling really ready for something more.
Part of thriving for me is revisiting some of the things I love that I let fall by the wayside over the past year. Memory-keeping is one of those things. I have found that when I am actively recording my story through pictures and words, I tend to find more joy in everyday living and actively seek to live a more purposeful life.
And so this year, I'm back to doing Project Life. I let it go last year, and I missed it. Not to mention, my girls also noticed there was no album for 2013. I am following Cathy Zielske's lead and going super simple this time around. I am doing things 100% digitally, and so far I am loving it. Here are the first four weeks of the year (you can click each layout to see it larger):
Here's to thriving in 2014.
