So 2014 arrived somewhat fast, it did not make itself wait. I would have loved to stall it a bit and take a moment to think of the year that had passed and wait for the new one with open arms, organize my thoughts, give it a welcome party along with a list of things that we'd tackle upon its arrival. But no, instead it found me in my pj's, with a messy house while making preparations for a birthday party that was already two weeks late. I hope it didn't mind me not paying much attention to it. I am now trying to catch up with the new year, get him up to speed with all that's happened, share resolutions and mostly start a new and positive friendship, with lots of projects and good stuff ahead of us.
I've never had a chance to start a 365 photo project. I've thought about it but, at this point in my life, I don't think I'd be able to follow through. A photo a week seems doable and so, I'm joining the 52 project: one photo per week of each my children. It will be a way to document their days, growth and changes in the course of a year. Below, week 1.

My firstborn, very focused as she paints (using her favorite color).
