Just like that week 2 of 2018 is complete. While time is truly flying by, I did get my first taste of this being a challenge. Sick kiddos, hockey tournaments and my own minor leg procedure last week kept us busy and distracted. Luckily I remembered my camera for the hockey tournament which is a good step but choosing a great picture each day wasn't always easy. I promise these won't always be filled with hockey, but I want these pictures to be telling of our daily life and in the Winter that means a lot of hockey!
Hi friends! Hope you're enjoying a relaxing long weekend! One of our favorite brands and a local brand for us here is Maine - L.L. Bean is offering 25% most clothing, outerwear and footwear through tomorrow (Tuesday 1/16). I've rounded up a bunch of my personal favorites from sale items, but this only scratches the surface. You can also check out my previous post of L.L. Bean favorites from the fall as many of these items are still available and on sale again. You can't be the quality and costumer service of L.L. Bean, and these are great prices.

Week #1 of my 365 photo challenge is complete. I'm definitely still a work in progress, but I'm hoping each week it feels a little more natural. I think my first step is to buy a camera bag I love! I still find myself forgetting to bring my camera to events and forgetting to snap the little details and simple moments instead of waiting for a big shot. My goal with this project is to capture the simple moments of our day to day in addition to big happenings in our lives. Tons of room for improvement, but off to a good start - below is a look at the 7 photos for this week.
Thanks so much for following along! I'm going to try my best to post my 7 pictures on here each week, but you can always stop by my Instagram page to see the latest. Anyone else attempting a 365 project?
