As I mentioned back in January in my goals for 2016 post, one of my goals for this year is to take more pictures. As a blogger, you'd think that would already be a given, but as a working mom, I feel like most of my pictures are taken on the weekends when the "bigger events" happen. There's plenty of stuff that happens during the week as well but it just gets... missed. Enter The Picture Perfect Project. I've been making a real effort everyday to make sure I take at least one picture. The problem is, when I get home from work, it's dark. So that doesn't leave me any time to take pictures outside, so I have to get creative. My goal for myself for The Picture Perfect Project is to take at least one picture a day. It doesn't matter what it is of, just as long as I take one picture per day.
As of today, February 11th, I have to admit... that I've failed! I was going through my photos the other night and realized I didn't take ANY pictures on one specific day. I was so mad at myself. Although I'm sure I took some sort of photo on snap chat, that picture is now long gone and I can't go back and save it anymore, so alas, according to my rules, I have failed. However! I don't consider myself a failure because I am actively trying to achieve this goal and now I just know that I need to double check my phone at night just a little better.
I think I've finally figured out how I want to share my photos. I think I'm going to show my collect app progress (the full past month and the partial portion of this month) as well as breaking them down so you can really see the pictures better. This might make for a long post, so bare with me, but if you're anything like me and love pictures, believe me, this will be picture loaded.
