About This Beautiful Mess

I got the idea from another blog to be a part of Project 365 - to take one picture for each day of the year. Here is my year in pictures...this beautiful mess.

Project 365 - Day 1 (and 2!): Princess for a Day/Grading and Other Distractions

I came across this great idea on Nicolasa's blog and I knew I had to jump in. It's one picture for every day of the year. What a cool way to chronicle a year!

I am already a day behind :(

But, thankfully, yesterday was New Year's Day and I took some pictures! :)

So, just for today, I will cheat and post two.

And although the last thing I need right now - between teaching, prepping for the Regents, getting married in less than three months and buying a house - is another diversion and another excuse to procrastinate, I am so on board with this!

So here we go....

We had New Year's Day at my parent's house. It is sort of a big day for us - my birthday is December 31 and my grandmother's was January 1, so we always celebrated both of them on New Year's Day. Even though my grandma is no longer with us :( we still had the family there. This is a picture of my uncle with my sister's youngest daughter, his great niece. His family got Gracie all the princess jewelry, which he dressed her up in. This is Gracie looking all beautiful and sparkly with Uncle Lou. I especially love how she is holding his hand!

This is what I spent my day doing. You can see my gradebook with all the papers I should be grading...with everything else besides. Yes, this sums up my life just about now. The computer is a CONSTANT distraction, but I can't help it. OK, after this post, I am back to the papers.


  1. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! Blogging is addicting, wouldn't you agree?? lol Love the pic of my Gracie too. :)

  2. aaaah the second picture I can so relate too! I am so glad you're joining in!
