Day In My Life

This is my personal project and one that is very close to my heart: Photographing one whole day in my life, 1 day a week, each week being the following day until I reach 52 weeks. I am now in my second year of the project which first began on Monday Jan 1, 2018. Hope you enjoy following along!

I looked up into the tree and saw a lone crow staring back at me. I have always loved crows and got really happy and took a few steps closer and looked into her eyes and invited her to come down to us, I even said to you Nixie how I wished she would just come down and say hi to us! And I kid you not about 10 seconds later that is exactly what she did (you insisted this crow was a she)! You had some crumbs in your hands from Forrest's biscotti which the crow loved, she was even eating directly out of your hands! …

It's our 4th proper Wednesday together and I am really loving this one on one time with you. And it's also really great for me too, to be able to have some me time during the day while you sleep.
