Creating a photo journal

If you’ve have read my “About” page, then you know I love pictures. I love to take them of people, things, events, everything that I want to remember or what’s important to me. The down fall to that is because I’ve always been the one to take pictures, I’m rarely in them. If pictures are taken it’s because I took them.

When it really started to bother me, is looking back at places we’ve gone and things we’ve done with our boys, if you didn’t know they had a mom in the picture, you wouldn’t think they had one! That seriously broke my heart. The really sad part about that is our oldest son is 23 years old. So many years with hardly a photo with me in it.

So here I am, all of these years later trying to figure out a way to fix that. I’ve been into digital scrapbooking but that didn’t fix the problem. I feel like my life’s story was literally slipping away with no documented legacy to leave behind.

I decided I needed to follow some daily prompts to help get my wheels spinning. There are so many different lists out there so I did my homework. This is the site that had the monthly lists that work for me. Capture Your 365. I may not stick to the words everyday, but that’s ok. The point is I’m taking pictures and it’s about me. I’m going to leave behind a legacy of love, hope and faith for my kids and future grandkids.

Now that you know what I’m up to, what’s your story? I believe we are all here for a reason, so why not show that you’ve left a mark on this world! So what do you think? Try it out with me!

Until next time,

Have a beautiful day!

I am a mom, who is lucky enough to be married to an amazing, handsome, funny, talented ( i could keep going with this ) husband. And we have 4 amazing boys, and a fur-baby named Pippin. My passions are my family, friends, photography, scrapbooking, trying new recipes, reading, sports, the mountains, I'm a closet Lord of the Rings nerd... my list is long, so let's just end it here! :) This blog is to show you the world through my eyes. I hope we can help add that little bit of sunshine to your day!
