March skies – an instagram project 365

Have you been following along with my #365daysofsky project on instagram? Another month has gone by and it’s time for the recap collage. I am completely hopelessly impatient with a lot of things in my life – and as of right now the thing I’m most looking forward to seeing is this entire year in one giant grid. The big nerd in me just can’t wait! For now here’s just a snippet – one from each day in March.

This post is the third in a set of monthly recaps of my instagram daily sky series. If you missed the earlier months, don’t forget to check out January and February.

March skies – an instagram project 365

days 81-84 {and now it’s time to rest}

It’s funny – as a school kid, a college kid, a working adult (pretty much my entire life) Monday was always a day to dread. The hectic return to real life after a lazy weekend (sleeping til 10? yes, please!). But as a mom it’s kind of the opposite. Not that I don’t look forward to the weekends, I do. It’s just that the weekends tend to be the crazy part of my week. All sorts of spontaneity and nap-skipping and not a lot of picking up. By the time Sunday night rolls around it’s all I can do to collapse in a heap on the couch after the kids’ bedtime. But Mondays now are always so restful. Pick up the house, open the windows, do some laundry. A fresh start to the orderly and predictable part of our week. Is it weird to love Mondays?

PS – this set includes a vertical shot, I think maybe the first one all year. I find myself only wanting to shoot horizontally because I prefer the way that they look on a screen. The verticals don’t fit as well. How’s that for a silly reason not to shoot vertically? This one shot is a teeny tiny step outside my safe horizontal comfort zone (if Tara can do it on instagram I can do it here)

days 77-80 {what a week}

What a busy week! It’s been a bit of everything – so far we’ve had a doctor’s visit (yet another ear infection, we’re getting awfully close to ear tube territory) grandma in town, car accident (not me, my mom – and thank goodness she’s ok!) and a sleepover. It’s been a big one and let’s just say I’m glad it’s almost the weekend. Hopefully things will settle down a bit in the next few days. On an unrelated note – day 80! Can you believe it? I haven’t actually finished a proejct 365 since 2008 (pre-kids if you hadn’t noticed the correlation) so I’m excited to have made it this far!

January skies – an instagram project 365

Have you joined instagram yet? I’m such an addict, I just love being able to document everyday life with my phone and share it with friends and family in a blink. I still love my “real” cameras too, but instagram is such a different animal all together, and one I can’t seem to leave home without bringing along.

I absolutely love taking pictures of the sky, but was feeling a bit silly posting them all the time to instagram without a good reason (does anyone ever really need a good reason to instagram?) So at the beginning of the year I decided to dedicate a project 365 (one photo a day for a year) to the sky. That way I get to take and post a sky photo every day guilt-free. Because it can’t be insta-spam if it’s for a project 365, right?

Here is the first month, all wrapped up in a pretty little collage. I can’t wait to have the whole year in one place, it’s going to be so cool!
