My mom came on Saturday - she'll be staying with us until Friday or Saturday
I love capturing the 365 (or in the case of this year - 366). While this is my 3rd or 4th year starting it, I'm hoping that this will be the first year that I actually capture all 366 days. So far so good....92 days in. This is about the time of the year that I begin to struggle. That many days will be right before midnight shots....
but so far so good!
What I find really helps keep me on track with my 365, is sharing and playing with others who are also doing the same thing - and I love prompts. I check in every day at Capture Your 365, and my album there is up to date. Katrina posts a prompt list each month and you can see Aprils list here. Do I use the prompts daily? no. Do I use the prompts on the days they are supposed to be used? Sometimes yes and sometimes no.
What I love about the 365 is that I'm photographing things I might otherwise have not. A bit of home, a daily routine, a bit of my bike, grandma on her Kindle - as well as the events, the visitors, the change of seasons and at the end of the year I notice the growth and the routines.
Sometimes I'm artistic, sometimes I'm prompt motivated, and many times I'm racing the clock to get a photo before midnight. What I love is the end result. Multiple times I've used my 365 albums as a visual reference to help me quickly remember when this or that happened - a missing tooth, a broken foot, and that sort of thing.

eta: since several of you have mentioned the pvc shoe storage already - I was inspired by one I had found on Pinterest, but I don't believe there was a tutorial with it. A few notes - while I like it - it wasn't cheap. I think we spent over $80 on what you see here, and while it works well for the kid's shoes and my sandals or thin dress shoes, I can't fit a pair of my husbands shoes or my bigger shoes into one tube.
I'll share more about it later - on the run right now. :)
