  1. Jessica, what a wonderful idea! I love how capturing the ordinary moments makes them extraordinary and special…I might have to give this a try 🙂

  2. I love looking at your photos on your blog. I have been inspired lately to start taking more pictures of my family. Thank you!

  3. What an absolutely marvelous idea!! Although I think if I did this right now I would get so sad. My kids are packing up to head back to college.
    But I could start something like this when they come home next summer, and then go summer to summer.
    Fabulous idea though, especially if you have little ones. Precious!!

  4. I don’t know if this is where I’m supposed to write what I wrote on the plaque. I wrote: To my favorite golfer-You are my hole in one…I love you.

  5. Lovely post.
    Those memories are so precious and I love anything that helps capture the little moments you might otherwise forget!

  6. I make it a practice to be grateful every day for the little things. Liked your post — I am so far behind on Project Life.

  7. This is such a great idea! Not just for ourselves to have perspective day-to-day, but for our kids when we are old or gone. I absolutely love seeing my messy room as a kid in my mom’s old photos. Or my grandmother watching TV with that look I totally remember about her. It’s so worth doing this. Thanks for the reminder!

  8. What an awesome idea. I have been procrastinating about purchasing a digital camera. You see photography is my passion. I love taking pictures but my old 35mm film camera has been collecting dust lately. Too many other things going on in my life. But this idea of yours has given me the initiative to start again!!

  9. Project365 just gets more wonderful as time passes.
    I did my first in 2007 as a digital scrapbook.
    My 2nd and 3rd in the next two years as paper projects (although they were both in a weekly, not daily format).
    This year, I’m doing a blog post daily.
    Now that I’m in my 4th year of a kind of photo journalism of my life, it’s apparent that the real benefit is the long-term documentation of all the blessings I have.
    Anyone who does this will love the results and so will those around you.
