A Photo A Day

Okay, I am stealing this idea straight from my November issue of Creating Keepsakes (LOVE LOVE LOVE this magazine!!!). It will be a fun scrapbooking layout and also a nice way to play with some photography. The theme is "Daily Thanks". EVERY DAY of November I will take one photo of something I am thankful for. Some days may be something profound and important, while other days it may be something simple and basic or anywhere in between.

Here is today's photo:

Family Dinner - something that I used to take for granted as a daily occurence in the house has become a bit of a special activity the past 2 months. September and October have been extremely busy in our household with me starting a part-time job, Tom taking on a new position at work, family travels, coaching Madison's soccer team, school open-houses and meetings...... I think you get the point. Between all these things the family dinner has not been happening as much as I would like. Tonight we were able to sit down to a nice relaxing dinner, discussing our favorite parts of the day and ending with a family game of Uno. I was so appreciative of this quality time for our family. November should be a bit calmer for us and I look forward to many more family dinners in the month.

I won't bore you with every day's photo but will share some collages of the photos I am taking. Does anyone want to play along?

I'm in... I love that magazine too. I am a BIG scrap-lifter. I have a huge binder filled with magazine pages I call "inspiration". Saves me time to let someone else come up with designs :) I love this idea!

I gave you a shout out on my blog for this idea. It's a great way to be mindful of all the small things for which we are thankful.
