I'm a scrapbooker so usually the pictures I take are the ones that I think will make it into the scrapbook, i.e. the pretty, picture-perfect, posed shots.
This 365 project has forced me out of my comfort zone - I have taken pictures of just about anything and everything and truth be told, there are a lot of these that won't make it into the family scrapbook.
But the 365 shots that I have assembled tell a different story than what is often told in a scrapbook. These are the glimpses into our daily life, the mundane, the moments that are usually here for a moment and then lost again.
Honestly, as I scroll back through the year I get a little teary eyed to see our family's life together captured in this way.
At this one year mark, I thought it would be fun to put together my top ten shots.
