  1. Jen! They’re great! They’re funny and sweet and someday she is going to cherish those. Once the year is up you can always use one of those online photo print sites and make a book out of them. Very cute. Keep it up!

  2. I love this. The photos are amazing and I love the messages you included. She is going to think this is perfect when she is 18. Good luck with the project!

  3. I’m going to agree with everyone else: beautiful, she’ll love this and I’m inspired! I saw your page for this a couple days ago and have been contemplating starting this myself. I’ve always wanted to do SOMETHING like this for both my kids. I guess there’s no better time to start than the present 🙂

  4. I love this idea! I know your daughter is going to really appreciate these one day. I’d like to try something similar. I don’t know about everyday though.

  5. Awww….how cute. I’m trying to blog 365 but I’ve already missed a few days. I do keep a journal for Moo that I write in everyday but I’ve been doing that sine she was born now. Looking forward to reading what kind of advice you give J.

  6. This is perfect. I often try and get my mom to tell me stories in detail about her thoughts as a mother raising me and being a wife but I can’t never get the details I am looking for to learn from. Great way to capture your thoughts for your daughter real time so you can share them one day. I guarantee you all will have priceless moments reading them together.

  7. Aww Day 6 brought tears to my eyes! It’s beautiful, and i love the fact that’s it’s her chubby little fingers holding the frame!

  8. I love the idea!

    I wouldn’t put the book away until she’s older. I’d let her look through it any time she wanted. I’d also get a couple copies because you know they are going to be well-loved and well-loved books don’t last forever.

  9. This is soooo the sweetest idea! I got a little teary eyed as I read these little notes (love letters). i think this idea will get copied A LOT! Thanks for sharing your experiences, I love reading your blog.

  10. Oh my gosh! This is such a great idea. And these photos are priceless. I love that with each photo, you share something with her — be it a lesson, something about your family history, or how you feel about life… and her. This is awesome.

    Oh, and ditto on the cooking thing. I’m not a cook either, but slowly and surely, I am learning for my son. 🙂

  11. I love your day 6 photo! That’s so cute! I wish more parents felt that way. I’m white and my husband is black and my family sure did have a hard time at first!

  12. happy to see im not alone! i also started doing a 365 photo project on the 1st. mine is just pictures. Love the fact that you have added words and some lovvely styling to yours 🙂

  13. This is amazing! What a great idea and gift for your daughter! And I think if you can, keep up the prettiness of them, it will really make them special!! 🙂

  14. What a wonderful inspiration! Help a non-techie…how do I add the text over the photo?? Thanks, awesome blog!!!!!


  15. Thanks for your kind words! I use Photoshop to add the words Candice. But sometimes I’m not on my laptop all day so I’ll use an iPhone app called ArtStudio to do it all. Enjoy!! 🙂
