2011 Blogging Challenge!

Our 2011 running goals list..on our chalkboard door.

O.K. so it is clear that I have needed to decide "to blog or not to blog"...that is my question for the day. It looms over me...knowing that my last post was in NOVEMBER and before that who knows. Talking it over with my we have covered every topic known to the human race in the past week (lazy, pajama days with nothing that has to be accomplished...sitting on the couch talking...talking...talking...laughing....crying...he is the best of friends a person could ever have....the best gift ever). We have come to a conclusion I needed focus...a challenge...a goal...set before me...cause see I love the idea of blogging and love being a reader but...needed some direction...and so now I have it. My blog will take a new direction for 2011. My brother (I have 2 older and the one i am writing about is the younger of the 2 older)...Several years back he had heard of a guy (no idea who so let me know if you know who) ...who took one photo each day of his life to chronicle his life. I always thought...what a great idea...but never took on the challenge. So along with a few other challenges for 2011 this is one I am taking on. One photo from my day...and a blog post...I see it as a great marriage. The post might be of a new decorating project, a finished recipe, the kiddos...or a bird...a plane...superman...who knows! Now for someone who has been so inconsistent...this truly is a challenge. I am excited to see what God decides to show me through this very specific lens of creativity. So cheers to the challenge! Have a great New Years Eve...I will see you in the New Year!

The Eve of day 1!
Love and Challenges!


  1. Tracey,
    Can't wait to see this challenge develop! I love some of the ideas on your 2011 wall/door! We should sit down and do the same thing as a family! Thank you for the inspiration!

  2. thank God.
    do you need a friend to hold you to it cause I'd be the perfect one for the job. :)

  3. Good luck with your challenge! I know how hard it is to regularly blog. I've developed an editorial calendar for myself this year...hoping I'll do better.

    BTW, I love your style and your cottage! Happy New Year!


  4. Followed you from Between You and Me and can't wait to make the minestrone. I love this challenge--and your chalkboard door. I was going to try Project 365, but forgot my camera on the first day, so I invented my own Project 52 for my blog. It's a random collection of our week. Check us out at if you want. blessings!
