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 295 - Crystal Clear

I am one step closer to getting the antique chandleier Adrienne gave to me hung up
Today I spend my afternoon cleaning every nook and cranny, getting all of the crystal to shine again 
I loved this thing when I first got it...but I really love with it now that I can atually see it

There were also some hanging crystals that had fallen off, or had broken or missing wire hangers
So Steve and I went to Ace and found some new brass wire that was the same gauge as the existing wire
It's a lot brighter than I wanted, but I think with a little time it will patina and match all of the other brass
The hardest part was working the wire hanger to loop and match the original...but I think I got it right

Coming up tomorrow...Hanging of the chandelier!!!
