I fell off the bandwagon for The 52 Project in 2013. Thankfully, the start of 2014 offers a fresh chance to start anew and make an effort. And, I am a bit late for 1/52, but here it is, barely a day before 2/52 is due to be revealed! My, oh my, how this January has gone fast, in a whirlwind of road trips, family gatherings, fresh food shopping expeditions, and late summer evenings punctuated by the song of cicadas.

For those of you new to the idea of The 52 Project, I am joining in with Jodi of Practicing Simplicity. Pop over to her beautiful online space with a cup of herbal tea, and perhaps you will be inspired, too.


“A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2014.”

/ taken on the 4th of January, Miss Alira is a few days over 8 months old and has begun to slither… Whoops, backwards! No doubt aided by the lovely soft cotton dress (a special Christmas present) and the smooth floorboards at Nanna V’s house. We’ll be learning to move and navigate intentionally soon. Time to baby-proof the apartment!
