celebrate {january}

last year, i documented my everyday life here at the chronicles by posting a *this week* recap. these included all of the exciting and oh-so-many unexciting things that happened in my day-to-day world, accompanied by photos. though i loved the documentation of daily life, i struggled with keeping those posts updated and was usually a few weeks behind.

for 2011, i knew i wanted a different approach, a monthly approach. but it took a few weeks to come up with an official plan. but i did. and i'm excited. this year, my monthly posts are all about celebrating everyday life. i won't bore you with my average weekly savings or where i shopped that week. my favorite tv shows and how long i brushed my teeth each day will be omitted. i will focus on the slightly more important things.

i would love to have it ready to post on the first of every month. but i won't. and i won't care. because it doesn't really matter. what matters is that i'm documenting the celebrations. punctuality is irrelevant. so let's get started...
