Project 52

This last year I came across a fabulous Mommy-photographer-DIYer-and all around great person that opened my eyes to the Project 52 idea. Thank you Shawna from styleberryblog. What a beautiful way to chronicle the year and share the feelings that only motherhood can open your soul to. I want my daughter to know what joy she brings into our lives and the lessons she teaches us. I don't want to miss one minute of it or let these sweet memories fade. This is for you Aubrey... My daughter, my joy, and my life.

Project 52:4 | breathtaking

Breathtaking... Simply breathtaking. These eyes are beautiful... and kind... and intelligent... and they look at me with such love that I thank God each and every day. They also have a feisty side that's pretty fun too!

Project 52:3 | a photographer in the making

I decided to give Aubrey my very first digital camera. She's already following in mama's footsteps... Nothing is safe from her lens! We've come a long way from when she was an infant and would stop smiling as soon as I pulled out my camera. Now it's her saying "let's take pretty pictures please". I love it. I love the idea that she will hopefully one day cherish our photos as much as I do and find joy in capturing memories.

Project 52:2 | sweet

I made orange sweet rolls for after Aubrey ate a good breakfast. She had other ideas :) It's moments like this that I know I can't control everything no matter how big or how small... and it makes me smile. I'm grateful that I have this precious little person that teaches me as much as I'm teaching her. Right after I snapped this photo she turned around and said "Mama taste this!" Her generosity warms my heart and her words make me laugh... "Cinammon roll" became "casserole".

Project 52:1 | persistent

She's 2 1/2 and knows what she wants. What can I say? She's her mother's daughter. Her current fixation is the pair of shoes that match her Christmas dress. A pearlescent ivory pair that she wants to wear EVERYWHERE. It won't be long before mama doesn't have a say anymore. She's growing up so fast but each day brings more joy and wonder than the day before. Slow down baby girl... Just a little...
