A few months ago when I found out I was expecting my third baby I approached Kristen about coming on board and helping me with the Ten on Ten project. I honestly cannot thank her enough for the ways that she has inspired and encouraged me through her gorgeous contribution in this space! About two weeks ago my first daughter, Josie was born. I have been flooded with the blessing that is new life and savoring the special bonding moments while falling in love with her more and more each day. Her birth makes me think a lot about this project and remembering why I started it in the first place. I had a just had my second child and was looking for a creative outlet that would be easy enough to do with young children and challenging enough to cause me to look outside the box for beauty among the ordinary things that go on from day to day. It has been almost three years now since this project began and last month we had over a hundred participants that linked up in some way or another. I can not tell you how much that blesses me, that so many of you are excited about looking for those gracious moments in our day that deserve to be forever preserved through the camera lens.
So for the month of November Kristen and I will be doing an extra special little side project along with the regular installment on the tenth. Each weekday during the month we will be posting a single image from both of our days. A moment that might seem ordinary to some but to us a chance to pause and enjoy the blessings and gratitude we have for the lives that we have been given. A very similar idea to one that Amanda Soule started called this moment as well as the 3191 Miles Apart diptychs by MAV and Stephanie Congdon Barnes, and also Andi's 30 Days of Gratefulness. Once a day a wordless way to note our gratitude.
If you would like to join us please do. On each Friday for the month of November a linky will be posted for you to sign, feel free to link it to your favorite moment from the week so that all of us can enjoy. Get creative and have fun!
Thank you to all of you who regularly participate in the Ten on Ten project and for making it what it is. You guys are such an inspiration to both myself and Kristen!
