Friday Five: Glimpses of my 365

One of the things I decided to start in the Jewish New Year was Project 365. I have tried this project for several years now and always seem to lose steam a few months into it. I had come to the conclusion as 2011 began that maybe I needed to wait until I had kids to do a daily photo project, but as the year progressed, I realized two things: 1) my life is more active than it was, and thus there is more for me to photograph; 2) I don't have to be perfect to do this - forgetting a day or two is not the end of the world, especially since there are many creative solutions, many of which I've learned about on my favorite scrapbooking gurus' blogs. Once I realized that this is something I could pull off, I couldn't wait until 2012 to do it; but, starting in the middle of the year seemed weird. Thank you, Jewish New Year! So, without further ado, here are five of my favorites from the past two weeks.

9/28 
Getting ready for Rosh HaShanah, I felt good about
a new year, a new me, and a pretty new dress.

10/1
I loved this pink Cadillac that was on display at the
Walk for Life.

10/8
I had to pull over to capture the beautiful sunset I saw
on the way home from Yom Kippur services.
The sky matched my peaceful mood perfectly.

10/12
This is our Temple's Sukkah, 
prepped for Sukkot dinner and services.
Our religious school kids did a great job of decorating
it the previous Sunday.

10/13
Hubby, having off for fall break, and I, 
having off for Sukkot, enjoyed a picnic lunch
in the Sukkah before going to 
a weekday afternoon movie.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Great photos! I am too forgetful to do a 365, but I didn't think about a 52. Surely I can manage one photo each week, right?

I wish you much success on the next 360+ days!
