Day in the Life, February 1, 2015

Two years ago I started documenting the first day of every month by taking one photo every hour.  I can't believe I'm now starting my third year with this project.  I'm so thankful to have these days documented - I love going back and looking at all the ways my life has changed (and stayed the same), and it's unbelievable how much Jack has changed in just 2 years (go check out  my very first post in the series here to see just how little Jack was back then).  I know I slacked off a little with posting every month here on the blog, but they're all on Instagram.  Just like the last two Februarys, I'll be linking up with Simply Rebekah.  I always use #dayinthelife on Instagram, and this year, Rebekah added her own hashtag, #1photoeveryhour if you want to go follow everyone who took on this project.

We were out of town the weekend of the first for our godson's birthday.  Jack slept in bed with us (while we mostly tried to avoid toddler kicks and punches - I woke up with baby feet in my face more than once, lol), so when I woke up I snuck out of bed so I could have my morning coffee in peace.

Shortly after this picture was taken, we got back on the road.  It was dark and Dennis was driving, so naturally, I fell asleep and missed the 9pm and 10pm pictures.  Dennis is a saint to let me pass out in the car on long drives.

11 pm
we might never get home

12 am
greetings from Bolivar

I wish I could say I went straight to bed, but after napping in the car, I stayed up too late vegging out to FB on my phone.  I got no pics of this because I was in a zombie half awake, half asleep stupor.

First thing the next morning (after we slept too late - wonder why that happened....), we put on Groundhog Day (affiliate link).

Groundhog Day

There you have it!  We had a great day this year and I can't wait to see what our February 1, 2016 looks like!!!  Check out all the other bloggers who linked up with Simply Rebekah.


  1. Such a long busy day!
    That photo with your son and the drink is still my favorite :)

  2. I love these. One of these days I'm going to have to do one again. :)

  3. It looked a lot more hectic than it actually was. But I did sleep on the way home, so I did have it easier than Dennis!

  4. You totally should! I love looking at other day in the life posts!

  5. Your little guy in that sweater and shirt is just too cute! I can't handle it. Thank you so much for sharing your day.

  6. Thank you! I love dressing him as adorably as possible until he's old enough to pick his own stuff. I'm so glad you host this link-up - if not for you, I may not have started this photo project!
