simple moments

what is simple moments about?

i originally started it as a personal photo project to get my creativity sparked again and so i could start documenting the ordinary moments in my ordinary days. because really, those little ordinary things will later be so extraordinary to us when we are gray and old and our kid's kids have kids.

later, i needed more of a challenge to spark creativity and to keep the need to document my days, because let's be honest, i can get lazy in my photo taking and journaling. so i now have weekly prompts, which you can find on my right sidebar.

simple moments is about finding the small things that make up our everyday, things we want to remember and be thankful for. it's the little bits of our lives that might not be remembered when we are gray and old. so we document it, on paper, with a photo, in a journal, through a blog.

if you join in, your photos don't have to be artsy fartsy, they just need to be something you want to remember. in fact, you don't even need photos, write about it if you're more of a writer. you can even video it instead. we all have our medium that we prefer, i like using my camera with a few words. your kids will thank you later in life, promise. these will be the sweet little memories that will be cherished for a very long time.

a few things:
1: anyone is welcome! document your marriage, family, kids, yourself. the point is to document your life, the simple, ordinary things that are often taken for granted, that one day, you'll want to look back on and remember.
2: please link back to me somewhere in your post. you can use the simple moments button, it's the easiest way.
3: please add the link to your actual simple moments blog post, not to your entire blog.
4: please be sure to visit others around your entry and leave a few kind word
