ringing in the new year | off switch



Today you can see the piece I wrote / photographed for the lovely Off Switch Blog.
It's an untraditional take on New Year's resolutions and a look into our family's culture.

365 ~ full wolf moon



Hi, friends! I've decided to take a huge leap and start my own 365 project with the girls. Gulp! I may be in over my head, but if you're interested, it will be at a lovely separate space to keep things un-cluttered and solely 365 related. You can follow along and be updated when I post our daily photos via bloglovin'. We'll be posting weekly over at Jodi's place, too!

So, what does this mean for Diapers & Skinny Jeans? To be honest, I'm not 100% certain yet; the space will mostly likely receive some sort of a face-lift within the new year, and I will keep on writing when my heart feels like it. This is, and will continue to be, the home of my Sling Diaries entries and has been such an integral part of my online history. This is where it all began. This is my outlet to journal, to get creative. Where over the course of the years, I have tried out all of the blogging fads like recipe making, DIYs, and starting my own columns. You try on different hats, you see what fits, you learn and experience and feel awkward and then one day, it's just ~~~ right. It's where I've met such a wonderful group of people from all over the world, gotten to know my good friends even better, or been given the opportunity to even meet some of you in 'real life'. Since 2010, this has been my home and I am so grateful for another year with even more opportunities and memories all waiting to be made.

I'm just so gosh darned grateful.

For everything.

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

That's it! That's a wrap. I cannot even BELIEVE that I made it a whole year. Obviously, I'm a little behind, but I am still so incredibly happy to be standing here at the proverbial end of the 52 Project and looking back at the memories made this past year. How incredible. We're all incredible. I have to thank Jodi for being such an amazing inspiration and host, that woman is a true talent. She brought about such a wonderful community of moms and dads, and even though I haven't been commenting much, I've been browsing around everyone's photos and am continually blown away. This photo-documenting business is no easy feat, and this project has taught me, shaped me, in more ways that I can even articulate at the moment. I've thought long and hard about this, and I will be continuing in 2014 in a brand new space with an even loftier goal~~~

I hope you'll join me.

(I'm just a tad bit terrified!)

Sofia & Alba: exactly as you are, 100% of the time.

One more to go!
