Welcome to the 2nd Annual “A Day in the Life of…” photography project! The concept is simple, but the results are awesome. Take one picture every hour, for one day, and an unique hour by hour snapshot of your day is created. I hope you enjoy my pictures and I look forward to seeing yours!
A Day in the Life of Rebekah – January 18, 2012
8:00 AM – Grace just woke up and we are cuddling in bed. This is very normal. The fact that I’m already showered and dressed is not normal, but we have “moms’ group” at church this morning. I love Grace covering her eyes!
9:00 AM – We are on our way to “moms’ group.” We just happened to pass a horse and buggy right at 9:00.
10:00 AM – COFFEE!!! The decaf coffee definitely makes it on my short list of things I love about my moms’ group.
11:00 AM – I just picked up my little pumpkin from the childcare.
12:00 PM – It is lunch time and Grace is enjoying a peanut butter sandwich. I usually wait to eat until she goes down for her nap. I love those quiet moments, eating lunch alone.
1:00 PM – Time to go to sleep, little one. Time really does go by so fast. This picture is already outdated. Just this weekend we took away Grace’s pacifier. She has handled it much better than I expected. She misses it, but is sleeping very well.
2:00 PM – Answering some emails. Do you have something you want to talk about? You can contact me anytime.
3:00 PM – Grace just woke up from her nap and I was rocking her in her room. Grace loves to rock with me after her naps. I have no idea how often that will be able to happen after baby #2 is born in April, so for now I am trying to soak in each and every moment. This picture is actually of a lamp I made out of a wicker structure, Christmas lights, and a dimmer switch.
4:00 PM – I’m cleaning up the kitchen. Yes, those are lunch dishes. That is just how I roll.
5:00 PM – I was kicking myself when my timer went off to tell me it was time to take my next picture. At that very moment I was looking under the couch for a missing library book. I didn’t stage my photos throughout the day and this is proof! How boring!!! For the record, looking under your couch is very difficult when you are too pregnant to lay flat on your stomach. I did find the book, but only after Nate came home later and moved the couch for me.
6:00 PM – I was putting some finishing touches on supper. We tried something new that was awesome. I might need to add it to my collection of simple recipes.
7:00 PM – I have been devouring oranges lately. This pregnant lady could probably eat five in one sitting.
8:00 PM – Nate was giving Grace a bath and had a few quiet moments to myself. I turned on the TV and enjoyed feeling the baby moving. In this picture I was 26 weeks pregnant.
9:00 PM – Getting my social media fix.
10:00 PM – I do most of my blogging at night. This evening I was working on my post 20 Green Things I Don’t Do (Part 1).
11:00 PM – I am embarrassed and appalled that my day ended with paying bills. I almost never pay bills before going to bed. Ironically, in 2011 this was my 10:00 PM photo. I hate paying bills (even though I used this amazingly simple method) and I hope this type of photo doesn’t show up in 2013!
