The beginning of a season. And the end of a year. A time for shopping, decorating, wrapping, parties, traditions, and more. But most of all it’s a time for hope. Examining those areas of our lives where we need to focus more attention. Our families. Our children. Ourselves. Our faith. This December I dedicate a little bit of time each day to document in words + photos how we are preparing our hearts and our home for the coming of Our Lord. It is my hope that we enter this season with grace, and slow down to enjoy the time together. A time of joy and wonder.
December Daily 2009 is here! Last year I watched wistfully from the sidelines of all the scappers who partook in this project inspired by the blog of Ali Edwards. I hoped this year I would be brave enough to jump in with both feet. And here I am! I've already gone ahead and designed all of the pages for each day of the month. Quite a feat! Hopefully they easily fall into place once the day comes -- we have no idea what we'll be doing on what day! I've promised myself not to be a perfectionist and simply document. It's the moments that matter, and worth capturing.
My goal is to snap pictures & journal each day, and then quickly grab a JPEG of the page to share with you. No promises! So no complaining if I miss a day or two.
