Did you notice we are almost one quarter of the way done with 2014! How are you liking your resolutions setting and achieving so far?
Me? I’m loving it. I mean, I love that I’m not feeling guilty at all. This is a big achievement for me. During my blog updating yesterday I noticed some goals I didn’t even remember I had set. Crazy, huh? Well, I’m getting them all back, March is a great month to analyze and replan. But there are two things I’ve been very focused on: Project Life and One Little Word.
As I mentioned when I introduced my one word for the year, my idea is to enjoy life and every moment, life is crazy and time flies and I want to feel as I lived it to the fullest. Project Life is also part of it because I feel like enjoying to capture and then I can pay attention to it at the end when my pages are done.
Here’s Week 3 of my PL, its photos and memories brought a smile to my face and I realized a simple visit to the mall was fun. I took so many photos that I had to make a different template to fit the 10 I chose to add. The greatest is some photos tell different stories because I was observing everything around, specially my silly little daughter. I love observing things around me because it makes me live the present.
I was observing the way she was holding the hanger. It is one of those moments that I feel she is not my little girl anymore, sometimes she acts like a teenager and I get mixed feelings about it.
I can’t get happier when I get the camera and she starts making those silly faces. In these moments I feel she still is my little girl and I get so happy. Besides that it’s a moment I can play around with design. I love cuts in photos, half things, half faces. I can’t wait to have a professional camera so I can play even more. It’s a dream!

And in our album I included a picture of MC Donald’s box, not because we are fan of it but because it reminds me my daughter’s resentment about toy giving policy there.
Our short (plus funny!) conversation went like this:
Little Girl: Mom, Kids Sandwich is too small. I want another sandwich
Mommy: Ok, which one?
It takes her a while to choose because of onions and pickles (things she doesn’t like), after choosing she starts talking about the toy she’s getting and I immediatly say:
Mommy: Dear, you’re not getting a toy because toys are only for KidsCombo.
Little Girl: What?! It’s unfair!! I am a kid and they should give me a toy. They should give toys for Adults Combos when they are bought by kids.
I was speechless, I could only laugh.
Well that’s it for March OWL Update. Are you doing any project for this year? Photography, One Little Word, Project Life? How are your plans going? I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to share in the comments below.
