365 Project: Day 1 – Purple Hands and Feet

by

Handprints and Footprints

Today is Day 1 of the 365 Project. These are BabyGirl’s hands and feet. It was a gift for Father’s Day 2004. I wanted to do something special that we’d be able to do every year. This one is a bit messy. But you try wrangling an 18 month old with paint on her hands and feet!

This artwork hangs on the wall, framed, in the laundry room. It’s right above the alarm panel. It’s one of the last things we see when we leave and one of the first when we come home. It reminds us to appreciate the child inside.

My friend Kate is joining me on this yearlong journey through photographs and on February 1st she also chose her word for 2011.

Feel free to join us. Sure, we’re a little late to the party. But we’re fashionably late!

I haven’t yet figured out how I’m going to organize these photography over the next year. When I do, though, I’ll let you know.

What a wonderful picture…something you’ll treasure for life. I love where you hung it too….what a great way to always be reminded of your greatest treasure!
