Week in the Life: Playing catch up

So. I had this goal. I have been planning it all out in my head, for months now. I told all my friends, for accountability purposes. I recently made some notes, printed worksheets.  I gathered a few supplies. I charged my camera battery and wiped all the pictures off my SD cards.

The  project; Week in the Life 2011.  The goal; make it to the finish line.

On Sunday (official start day was Monday but I like to draw things out as much as possible) I started (along with scads of other dedicated folks and the projects creator, Ali Edwards) a photo journaling/scrapbooking project called 'Week in the Life'.  I have done the WITL project in years past but have never seen it to completion.  For one reason or another, I take off running then fall flat on my face.  This year, I decided, would be different.  This year, I decided to finish. I made it a goal.  I am determined.  Part of my determination was to post everyday during said project and thus far I have failed miserably.  I am late (I was born late, seriously.) to the party. Again. Still, I shall not be dissuaded.


Being that this is the week of my second 'Wedding Photo' gig, I am slightly stressed out.  I am shooting and researching. And researching and shooting. And stressing. (Also, having night mares about being late to the wedding. Not good.)

Again, I remain determined.

Notes-to-self for this week:

     *Relieve stress by digging hands in the warm dirt of my garden, breathing in the wonders of this life I have been given-taking pictures all along the way.
     *I will not beat my self up over being late.... again. 
     *I will take amazing wedding shots tomorrow! I can do eeeet! (Thanks so much to Joy for volunteering to be     my assistant. Joy, you rock!)
     *Determination Station, here I come!

    Today I am posting a few shots from the last few days of WITL+ Words.
