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 357 - Listography

A family friend is having a baby shower next weekend and they requested that guests
Bring a book to help grow the baby's library
I loved the idea but took a slightly different take on it...

I brought the mom and dad-to-be a Listography book from Barnes and Noble
(Note: these books make the best gifts and there are all different kinds of them)
The book is an autobiography made up of lists (list your favorite song, websites you go to most...etc.)
I though that if the couple filled it out now and really captured who they were pre-baby
Then when their child (children) are all grown up
(And can't imagine their parents were ever people other than "mom" and "dad")
They can read through this book and get a real sense of who exactly their parents were when they decided
It was time to open their hearts and lives to children

(I love the list subjects and illustrations in this book!!!)
