12 on the 12th...er...13th.

Inspired by Miranda who was inspired by this site. I've always thought this looked like a fun project, but it took me until May to actually whip out my camera on the 12th. I may just do it again next month.

A Day in My Life: (un-chronologically)
01. Lilies from Mom's Day opened today. Thats what I love about them. They take a few days to strut their stuff. It's always a welcome surprise.
02. Cute little toesies. These digits receive thousands of kisses a day.
03. Papa! My daddy arrived from Hawaii.
04. Meet my dog, Maggie. She's a character and enjoying the sunshine.
05. Rows of pretty buttons. Spent some time organizing the colorful buttons I inherited from my grandma in cute little IKEA spice jars.
06. Dad shot this picture of me and sleeping Baby D per Great-Grandma's request. I'm not sure why I keep posting my unmakeuped self on the internet. Maybe because pictures of me a few and far between. (I think about 6 were taken of me in 2009.)
07. Crazy son received a black eye from doing a daring stunt. He is very proud. I keep catching him smiling at his reflection in the bathroom mirror.
08. Proofs! Went into the office to review the July issue of CARDS. It is a fabulous issue!
09. Bought some fabric at IKEA. Actually, they are dishtowels, but I am going to use them to sew something else. Maybe a bag?
10. Stopped into Michaels. Looking for something that wasn't there. Bummer.
11. My princess. She is really into dressing herself. Wish you could see the whole ensemble because it is a sight to behold!
12. Came home from work to find a fajita dinner prepared by my husband. What a sweet surprise. Delish too!


  1. I love this idea. Maybe next month I will do this too.

  2. I love your 12! Did you have fun? I think it is such a fun way to document life. And don't worry...I always post my pictures on the 13th. I just take them on the 12th. :)

  3. I love this idea too! Maybe I'll do 9 on the 9th to make it easier.

  4. What a great idea for a post! And your unmakeuped self is beautiful!

  5. Oh your sweet kids. They look adorable! May is filling up for me, but I think I'm going to the CBC- maybe I can see you there? And definitely a get together when Mel's in town, so the first part of June?

  6. such a sweet glimpse into your life. great idea. i would SO love to know how to get pictures to line up in rows like you have them here! is there an easy way to do that?

  7. This is such a fun idea. A neat way to share a piece of you with your blog readers. The black eye - is adorabl...and funny tha the keeps looking at it...so proud - LOL

  8. Love your pictures.
    What a fun idea.

  9. Hannah can you tell me what tool to use or what it's called when you want to create one image using multiple pictures so I can look up how to do that? I love when you incorporate several pics of different sizes into one image too. Same process? Thanks!

  10. Barbie...it isn't really a tool. I have each image in a different layer and then resize them. Email me if you need more information.

  11. Oooh I have lilies from last Sunday which are only just opening too! It's so exciting to watch them bloom. :)
