There are some action items that seems to linger on my “to do” list for longer than others. Somehow “do the dishes,” “put the clean clothes away.” and “pay bills” push out “call cousin Marie,” “finish T’s wall hanging,” and “design 2008 photobook”. Well, not this time, not today! Today, I finalized and pressed Confirm Order on a photobook made from our photos taken in 2008. Yes, 3 years ago. And, it feels successful, like today, I really accomplished something. It is something, right, when it’s been on my list since the beginning of 2009, when I’ve made baby steps a long the way, every few months or so? Sort photos one day, and then get back to it a few weeks later. Upload some, wait more, resist the temptation to throw the computer out the window when it “can’t be completed.” Start again a few weeks later. But, then, finally, the fun part arrives. The creative and contemplative, the design and the story. And, here now, after a few weeks of living in 2008, its reflection is finally here.
So, since I am so thrilled about it, I thought I’d share with you, too. It is entitled “Back Together” in remembrance that we had spent most of 2007 apart and were ready to truly bask in all of our moments together.
You can find it here. Enjoy!
(Oh, and as a fair warning and partial disclaimer, 2008 had 366 days, 52 weeks, and 12 months packed with activities and friends and family…therefore the photobook has 75 pages!)
