12 of 12 recap

I LOVE this project that I started from Amy Gretchen. Her blog is
I started this in 2013 and I am in LOVE. Being able to focus on 12 things for each month has really made me more aware of our everyday lives. Sure, we always try to document the big things, birthdays, holidays, school, vacations, BUT being able to slow down and become more conscious of our everyday life. It's fantastic! A great way to document your life and small moments. 
It's helped me try to be more creative with my photography. It's great to be able to look back throughout the year and see what we were doing on the same date for each month. My boys LOVE reminding me that it is the 12th. They give suggestions on what my 12 for the day could be. :)
I love being able to capture our lives. It goes TOO fast.
Here are my 12 of 12 from 2013 (top) and 2014 (below monthly 2013). I'm excited to see what next year looks like!
