Day in the Life JANUARY | These are the Days 2017

Last year I did a photo every day for a year (you can see my year in a slideshow HERE), and this year I am doing something a little different! Every month I will be doing a 'day in the life' session for my family to challenge myself a little more. This was my very first one EVER. And picking the photos is just about impossible! I also think this was the most boring day...I promise next time I will try to pick a more eventful one! Ha. 

Winter is so gloomy here in the Pacific Northwest! Our day (January 25th) consisted of breakfast, destroying my bathroom while I got ready, school drop-off, second breakfast, saying bye to dad, laundry, dishes and of course Costco. After Costco it was time for school pickup, and we went to the park for a little while after. Once we got home we wound down with a show, did some painting, had dinner and got ready for bed. My mom made a few appearances (she lives next door), and the kids did bedtime stories with her over Skype with their cousin (who had just lost his first tooth). Our day ends with two sleeping kids and one little reader. Then mama gets to unwind with some editing and a HOT tea. Ahhh. 

When you're done here, head on over to Laura's January "Day in the Life" with her adorable little boy!
