The Goal: to take and post at least one picture each day for the entire year that I'm 27.

I find that I rush through the day, to rush through the week, to get to the weekend...just to find that an entire year goes by in the blink of an eye. So, on the eve of my last day as a 26 year old I decided to make a change. I challenged myself to take the time each day and find at least one moment worth remembering, hoping that in this way I will learn to live each day for what it is. For regardless of how uniform the days may feel at a glace each one is truly unique and worth cherishing.

Day 175 - Winner!!!

I slept in an extra hour today and didn't get up until 9...but once I got up I destroyed the day!!!

I got sick the day after Christmas and believe it or not, this is my first weekend being healthy since
So today I wanted to get a few of those chores done that were supposed to get done before New Years

First I "killed Christmas" (Steve's term for taking all of the Christmas decorations down)
Then to put the Christmas storage bins away I cleaned the garage and storage shelves
Then we went to Home Depot and bought a metal rack, came home and built it, and then loaded it up
With the rest of our garage storage (and the tools that make up our little home workshop)

(During this time Steve was working on refinishing our stair hand rails....that is going to be a huge project!)

Now back to me : )
So after the Christmas de-decorating and garage clean up victory I was pumped to do more...
So I cleaned out the down stairs hall closet and finally got some of my Christmas present put away
(My brother's girlfriend Nickee got me 16 red chargers and my mom got me winter appetizer plates)
Anyway the hall closet is my "party closet: full of extra wine glasses, decorative plates, disposable plates and Napkins, table clothes, candles, glass vases, and some gift wrapping supplies...and now it's all organized!


But I wasn't done yet!!! There was one more closet I wanted to tackle...
The upstairs hall closet is full of decorative pillows, extra bedding, drapes, picture and drape
Hanging hardware, chandelier light bulbs, candles, and a few unused storage bins waiting for more stuff
And now it too is perfect!  So take that cold, bronchitis, sinus infection, and year 2011 - I win!!!
