Here’s a video preview of a few random shots from Project 365. I’m trying to find a tool to use that can accommodate all of the images. Stay tuned.

This concludes Project 365! I think there is almost one photo per day. Some days have more. I learned a lot of things, especially that I have a great life and a lot to be happy about and grateful for.
Think you could do it? This kid did. This was kind of the idea with Project 365 – more uploads coming later today, hopefully. After my old lady class at the library. Hey, I’m turning 27 next week. This is what we do.
Here’s the article
Clearly I need to turn my selfies into a video.
It’s almost May and I haven’t uploaded any photos since New Year’s Eve! Kit and I went to Nashville on the 1st. Here are some photos from that. Also, no idea what day it is but I know I’m about halfway through the project already. So crazy!
On Broadyway. We had amazing nachos at Tequila Cowboy. The boots I bought. Being silly in the candy store. Honky Tonk!
We loved exploring Brodway. We met some fun people and saw some good singers! We went to Burger Up in Franklin and the Opryland Hotel the next day. Burger Up was so good! The food was awesome and the place was really cute. Our waiter was nice too.
Bridal shower pics. The one my family hosted was at Villagio right on Lake Street. It was lovely! We played the “Almost Newlywed” game where we asked questions and they put the owner’s shoe up in the air for who they thought the answer was. It was funny!
me and Kit at the rehearsal.
Dana’s wedding was so fun! I’m really glad everything went so well. It was a beautiful ceremony and reception. We’ve gotten a lot closer too. Now we only live 20 minutes away so we can see each other more often! Kit and I got a place in 4 Lakes in Lisle. We are enjoying it so far! Can’t wait for the pools to open. Happy spring!
