All my friends know that I have to get a picture of the day when I go out with them! I am always looking for a moment which I can get a picture of something we have done together, and a moment to sum up the day.

Why you may ask? I do it because I am taking part in the Project 365 challenge, it means I must choose 1 photo to sum up our day, or a moment I want to remember. I don’t upload them into a blog post anymore, but I always upload onto my Instagram account.  So you will find a mixture of pictures on my account, and you won’t find a pretty theme to my account, but you will find our life!

I started doing this at the start of 2015, and I cannot believe that I have nearly completed 2 years. By the end of this year I would have uploaded 731 pictures of our life! A lot of older people say to me they hate digital photos, it means they never get printed out, and never get shared around with family. Well not me!

At the end of 2015 I got all my project 365 pictures together, put them in order and created a photobook from PhotoBox.

I also take part in the Me and Mine project with Dear Beautiful, which is all about getting monthly photos of you and your family. I love this project as it makes me think about getting a photo of all of us as a family. I then use this picture to mark the first day of the month in the photobook.

I love that I can pick up this book with the kids, and go through it together. It is so easy when your busy to forget about all the lovely moments you have together, of all the nice places you have visited and for the children it keeps the memories alive.

I can get it out to show family and friends, they can see what we have been up to, and as it is little pictures, with little moments it is easy to go through our whole year quickly!

We had a giggle at some of the photos that we had in the book!!

This year I have made sure I have uploaded a square image each day, so this book should be a little neater than last years, but keep an eye out as I am going to show you 2016’s book next year!

I hope you join in with this photo project in 2017, it is tough sometimes remembering to get that photo each day. However when I get all my images together, pick up this book and look through it, I know I will keep going with this project and create more memories of our life.

My photos are shared on Instagram and Facebook each day, if you want to keep up with us.




  1. We’ve been making a DIY photobook each year, but decided to order one online for our travel photos. The quality is so good, we have decided to order our yearly photobook online now. I haven’t heard of this brand yet, so will take a look.

    That’s such a good idea! I love that you’ve created a book with the images.

  3. I love picture books. I was meant to do my own ones a few times this year but I just don’t get the time or don’t make the time. It started off good.

    This is such a fab idea. What lovely memories to have to look back on. I may give this a go next year x

  5. Such a great idea! I always fail when I try 365. Might try again in 2017!

  6. I’ve tried twice before to join in with this project but i usually only last a month or so…i’m useless at remembering to take photos some days. Having the photos put into a book is such a wonderful way to recap all those little moments though!xx

  7. I really need to have a go at 365 days project and do more linkys. I love the photo book idea for each year.
