Well, this is it! A whole year of pictures. I started this project a year ago on my birthday and tried to take a photo each day to document the year. Some photos were exciting, some were a little boring, some were pretty, some were entertaining but I absolutely love looking back on them and remembering where we were in that day of time. One of my favorites is from Day 30. It is the day we found out I was pregnant and we had dinner with friends. Gino and I were so excited with our big secret and just couldn’t say a word to anyone. It’s also neat to see how our life has changed since we found out we were adding one more to our family.
I am going to make a photo book with these photos and it will be a nice keepsake for Luke to look back on so he can see what our life was like the year he was born. I am sad to say this project ends here, but I will continue to take photos and share them when I can.
