Nudging Towards Productivity

Hi All- I'm Emily. Way back when this started I was all excited to begin a First Year Scrapbook for my son. So I thought I would be using this to post my ideas, layouts etc. I didn't. Clearly.

But! I AM doing it. My Boy is turning 3 (!) this August and I AM DOING THIS NOW. As proof of my real effort, I have 250 photos. They are stacked neatly beginning with "Before you were born" and divided monthly through his first birthday. I have also noted in each month any events that need special attention. First solid food, first bath, etc.





So, you see? I'm doing it! Yea for me! Keep your fingers crossed for me that I won't lose steam.

Yea, Emily. You're off to a good start. I've got to do the same thing, so you are motivating me, too!

I think the hardest part of starting a project is just that: starting it. And that often means the organizational end, so see, you are well on your way.

PS: That's a sweet photo of you and your pregnant belly.
