Photo Project 365 And an Award

Have you heard of the Photo Project 365? I hadn't really until yesterday. The idea is to take at least one picture every single day, that way time doesn't quickly pass you by and you realize you have missed months if not years of your life.

Well, you all know how I love taking pictures... but I also did not want this photo challenge to take over this blog, so I have started a second blog. Emmy Mom's Photo Project 365, it can be found here.

I must admit, I already missed a day... but that was because I didn't know about this project.. but that will hopefully definitely be the only day I miss. So I would love for you to check it out... and feel free to follow it, as I know if I don't follow it I often forget to check it.

And join in the challenge, at the end of the year you will be very glad you did.


Yesterday I got an award yesterday!

Maggie at "I'm just sayin'" awarded me this
Maggie recently discovered my blog and I am glad she did, even though she calls herself my heathen friend :)

She is a mom who is honest and open and sometimes very honest with what she is thinking, but I can't help but get a good laugh from her blog. (Be forewarned--she sometimes uses dirty words)

So thanks again!

And I would like to pass this on, in no particular order:

1) Fruit of the Carolyn-She is beautiful, she writes beautifully--even when she is complaining it almost sounds like poetry, and she has goats. Gotta love it.

2) The Meanest Mom- Funny, funny funny... and she really isn't so mean.. at least I hope not or I must be pretty mean too

3) My Trendy Tykes-Linda's blog is one of those blogs that always makes me laugh. She is honest and edgy I love reading it. She is also doing the Project 365.

4) Mindi's Manic Meandering's-Mindi, Mindi, Mindi--what can I say but so funny, so honest, a bit rough around the edges herself at time-but she will tell you how it is and I love her for it.

5) Glamazon Mormon Mom- I found this blog around the same time I found Mindi's.. these two are friends in real life and I feel like the third wheel trying to sneak in their lives through the blogging world. Her blog is also honest, real and so fun to read.

6) CA Girl-Yes Lourie is my husband's cousin, but as she has continued to blog I have seen her blog progress more and more and have really enjoyed reading it.

7) One Foot in Front of the Other--Mrs. Montoya sometimes feels like a kind bigger-sister who is so kind and such a great person. I enjoy reading about her life and the stage she is in as I know I will be in that same stage before I know it.

So thanks--there are so many blogs I love. But had to pick 7.. and the rules for the award:
Additional responsibility includes nominating seven blogs for this award. And, once you receive this award, the rules are as follows:

1) Add the logo of the award to your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you (as shown above).
3) Nominate at least seven other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.


  1. Congrats on your award and thanks for giving it to lil ole me!!

  2. What a beautiful new background! And the 365 project sounds so fun, I may have to join you. But I think my 365 days is going to start next week and not on the first. It is my anniversary next week so I can start and end on that day.

  3. Congrats! And thank you. Don't say too much my head might get too big to fit through the door. ;) I like the idea of the pictures. I think I will do it. It could be very educational.

  4. Congrats on the award and thanks for giving one to me! I am so excited!!

  5. Good luck on the challenge - I've heard of it before but thought I just couldn't handle the task... good for you!

    Congrats on the award, you deserve it.

  6. That would be tough...a photo every day. I'm sure your record will be beautiful.

    Complaining...like poetry? This may be one of my favorite compliments ever!

    Thank you. And thank you for the award.

  7. Yay. Thinking of Project 365 Blog name now. What a terrific resolution.

  8. In it's purest form, Project 365 is a self portrait every day forcing you to get super creative and try out all kinds of different techniques to continue coming up with new and different photos. I only lasted a few days because I hate pictures of myself. This way will be more fun. Enjoy yourself!
