I much prefer this monthly approach to Project Life. When I was working weekly, it felt like a crunch. And I’m much more likely to have good photos to choose form over the course of a month than over a given week.
It was also a fun exercise to go back through my photos from the past month. Sometimes it feels like nothing is going on. But when I go through these photos, I remember, oh yeah, Michael learned to crawl this month. And he started eating apples and clementines. And Kate barely went to school (because of snow and ice), so I taught her to play Go Fish. And how we all made a big effort to eat more real food. And that I picked up BodyPump, so I launched three formats this month.
Part of the reason I like this project is how it forces me to review the month – the real good stuff and the real challenging stuff. All that stuff of life stuff.
Are you doing Project Life this year? Are you taking a weekly or monthly approach?
