Day 1 & Day 2

Here we sit at the beginning of a new decade, a new year, a new start and while I’m not one for resolutions (just one more thing to manage in a long list of To Do’s)…I was intrigued to take on Project 365 by Miss Hannah of honey & jam. And, may I say that you MUST, absolutely, hurry on over to her incredible website. Her photographs are beautiful….and she’s only 19…or something like that.

I plan to post one photo representing every day in 2010 on my flickr page. I may post them one at a time or they may come in a flurry…but by the end of 2010, I hope to be able to look back at a year that took me, you, our fragile country in a new direction and I thought you might enjoy knowing about this little project. If you would like to check in and see how I’m doing, just click on the “flickr badge” on the lower right-hand side of this page. From there, click on the set of photos, entitled, “2010 at a Glance” and you can see my ever growing bunch of pictures.

And, let me not allow another minute to pass before I say that I would never have felt inspired to post even one picture, let alone an entire year of photos, if it weren’t for your kind words and gentle encouragement, dear friends. Thank you. I hope to follow in your footsteps and be more forthcoming in my sincere and genuine compliments to others because you never know how it may change their lives.

Du Puy lentils
Day 1
The day is misty. A lentil soup is on the stove. The Rose Bowl is on the TV and my sweetie is in front of it. The children, still in their jammies, ramble about the house amongst the strewn gifts. I sip my wine and contentedly stir my soup.

Tazza latte
Day 2
A rare day indeed. Just me and the middle child. We lapse in and out of silence en route to the library. I enjoy my latte. The topic of his chatter is lost on me. I’m simply soaking up his presence.

  1. Ha! Great minds must think alike 🙂 … I just started a second, photo-a-day blog yesterday. Speaking of which, I'm so impressed with your food photos. Food is the hardest thing for me to photograph–I'd love to find out your secret (all that light!).


  1. […] year ago, I published a post about the hows and whys for taking on this project. Click here if you’re curious to read those musings. Below is a link to my entire collection of photos […]
