As I mentioned in this week's podcast, my decision on whether or not to do A Week in the Life along with Ali Edwards really hinged on whether the album I wanted was available at my local Michael's or not. Guess what? I found it. I stopped in the store and bought a couple of these fabulous 8 X 8 albums and a couple of the inserts that you can see below. Other than these items, I don't plan on buying anything else for my WITL project. Instead, I'll use the materials I have on hand.
Take a look at the photos I snapped over the course of the day. Of course, I won't be able to use all of them, but I thought I'd share them all with you in case you want to compare the finished version with the 'in progress' version at some later point.

Slightly demented looking studio selfie
Overall, I'm happy with the amount and variation in the photos that I shot today. I'm already thinking about what kind of pics I might want to take tomorrow and am excited about having some other people take the pictures for a change of perspective. I def need to get better with my self-timer and the angles I shoot for this to be a collection of photos that I truly like.
I'll check back in with you tomorrow to show you what my Monday was like. Who else is planning on doing WITL? Will you do it this week or later? What choices have you made about size and album and that sort of thing? I can't wait to hear all about it. :)
