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, it began a few years ago on Monday Jan 1, 2018 when I did 1 day a week switching days each week which I did for two years and then for year three I only did them for each full moon and changed the format of them. Now for my fourth year I'm doing them every week but only our weekends and have returned to my original way of doing them which is choosing 25 images for the day. Hope you enjoy following along!

Week 3 Year 4

Week 3 Year 4

What an incredible day we had! It is day three of our five day holiday to the Isle of Wight and our day started with a little adventure at the beach and then we headed to Blackgang Chine for the second day in a row. We ended our day with another evening at the beach exploring the low tide. An absolutely perfect day! This is also my entry for Artefact Motherhood a project shared with other international female artists who are documenting our journeys as mothers and creating memories for our children through our photographs and words.

Week 2 Year 4

Today was Father's day so it was all about celebrating daddy! Our day started at home opening presents and just playing together and listening to music. We headed out in the afternoon for a little adventure amongst the heathland where we ended up getting stuck in knee deep bog! But we also found lots of elderflower which we were all so incredibly excited about!!

This is the start of year 4 of doing this project but this year I'm attempting a 52 week DIML where I'll be choosing my favourite 25 images for the day! This was a great day too, we did lots of creative stuff for the first half of the day along with some chores before heading out for an evening low tide exploration and dinner at our special little spot. This evening was all about the scallops! We kept finding them everywhere even alive ones which was so exciting!

Pink Moon~ April~ Year Three

This is the first time since I've started this full moon diml project where I missed doing it on the actual full moon and am a few days late. It's been such a full on month and if I'm honest I have felt emotionally and mentally drained and just in survival mode.

Worm Moon~ March~ Year Three

Today was one of those days where we didn't really get up to anything overly exciting. Just a few outings to free a frog, to get some plants at the garden centre, some baking and some gardening and lots and lots of lounging around!

Snow Moon~ February~ Year Three

At one point you (Forrest) wanted boob again and climbed on top of me so I just laid down on the earth and just enjoyed a bit of forest bathing. I felt so at peace. All my worries from earlier in the day just seemed to seep out of me. It was a beautiful 10 minutes that I didn't want to end.

Cold Moon~December~ Year Three

Cold Moon~December~ Year Three

Today was all about nourishing ourselves. Our minds, our bodies, our spirits and our souls. We headed to Milford on sea to go for a walk by the sea and what a gorgeous morning it was, the sun came out and was shining down on us and it felt so incredibly blissful. You and Forrest had fun throwing stones into the sea. I had fun taking some photos of the sea and enjoyed some moments of just being able to listen to the waves. I love how soothing the sea can be. It's always exactly what I need it to be.

Our day started with an early morning outing to the heathland but then we ended up having a cosy day at home. We made some moon spell cookies and added some cinnamon to one batch for success and love and orange peel to another batch for joy and good luck...

It was a day that started out with some crafts at home before heading out to spend the day with some of our friends. We took them to one of our new favourite places in the forest where we had a picnic and played amongst the trees and the ferns.
