Christmas Eve in Pictures

Yesterday, on Christmas Eve, I took a photo every hour, for every hour I was awake. I was hoping to capture the story of the day, and interested in seeing if the pictures would tell me anything about my day that I didn’t already know. In the end, I found out that my day is a lot of cooking, riding in cars, and eating and drinking.

Disclaimer – I have heard of other bloggers doing this; if I knew who the originator of the idea was I’d give credit. I’m not taking credit for the idea.

11 am. Staring at the sink, getting ready to put myself together.

      Its really fun to do. I was thinking it would be cool to try to do a picture every hour, every day, every hour I’m awake.. but I can’t really take pictures at work, and I’m not sure even I can stay interested in every hour of my day every day..
