January really flew by, didn't it?! These days it seems that I can barely keep up with how quickly the time passes!
I also remembered why January is probably the worst month I possibly could have chosen to start a Project 365! Almost immediately after starting this project last year, one of my kids got sick and the last thing that I think about is taking out my camera! This year, I powered through it and while it wasn't a perfect month of picture taking, I did keep up with it most days. And of course this year, both of my kids got sick. We spent a lot of time cuddling on the sofa and watching movies and I did snap a picture or two of them during this time.
About three quarters of the way through the month, I found this little gem of a printable photojournal so I could keep track of why I took each picture. I have to say that taking a picture almost everyday, particularly when you're stuck in the house most days is an interesting way to keep track of your life. It felt good to capture the every day life of my kids and I'm looking forward to the inspiration that February brings!
Some highlights of January: Three fantastic photo sessions - two with newborn baby girls and my niece's 4 year photos! My family celebrated my Grandmother's 90th birthday! The very fun photo shoot for Valentine's Day that I did with my kids (check out my Facebook profile to see that craziness)!
Here are just a few of my favorite photos from January.

This is Ben watching our new popcorn maker. You wouldn't believe the amount of entertainment this machine provided my kids in the month of January!

I hope you all had a happy and healthy January!
