I need to start this post with a confession: October kicked my butt. It began with travel, was filled with sleepless nights due to colds & teething, and I had SIXTEEN photo sessions to edit and get out the door.
All this to say… Project Life took a backseat.
But it’s all ok. That’s why I love this simple system– I was able to pull together everything you see here and knock out an ENTIRE MONTH in TWO HOURS!
September 29 – October 5. Colin & I traveled to Minneapolis for my Minnesota Mini Sessions. We visited with BOTH Grandmas and fit in a few playdates with friends. Since it was a busy week I didn’t take many personal photos. I used snapshots taken on my mother-in-law’s phone and added in a couple favorite photos from my mini sessions. I don’t typically include my client work in Project Life, but since this trip was all about the mini sessions & I had a shortage of personal photos, I decided to include a few. Oh, and since the horribly inaccurate weather forecasting played a big role in the weekend, I included a snapshot of that as well. Anything goes.
October 6-12. Back in Seattle, we celebrated our FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! My cousin was able to babysit [hooray!] and John took me to a fancy steakhouse for dinner. We also got back into our weekend hiking routine and explored Twin Falls. All photos taken with my iPhone this week.
October 13-19. The highlight of the week was our family trip to the apple orchard. I had so many favorite photos that I decided to dedicate the entire week to this event. I snuck in two iPhone photos on the right side [our Franklin Falls hike and my official LLC paperwork from the state of WA!]
October 20-26. Again, most of this spread features pictures taken with my big camera. On the left, a few fall memories [we are loving fall in Seattle!] and on the right are Colin’s 11 month photos.
October 27 – November 2. Colin’s first Halloween! Left side is all iPhone photos, right side is all big camera photos [from our trip the aquarium]. Even though it’s a bit of a hodgepodge, I’m loving how the bright colors really tie everything together.
Whew! What a month! Like I said… it kicked my butt. Excited for a November that’s slower-paced and includes a bit more rest [or so I hope!]
