December Daily Week 1

Hi lovelies! Today I'm sharing the beginnings of my December Daily® album for this year! I've switched up my album slightly since I prepped it but I'm really digging the simpler format this year that I described in that post. For the majority of this album I'm using one photo per day paired with hand-written journaling and I'm loving this approach so far! See below for even more details and I hope you enjoy!

December Daily Prep

I–like many others around the world–am partaking in December Daily again this year and boy am I excited! I completed my little album from 2014 with pride and I love looking back on all the happy holiday memories. Last year, however, I was back in school and working–a combination of which was way more than a full time commitment–and I fell off the December Daily bandwagon with all my beloved handpicked supplies left to collect dust. Until now, that is! Since I had already chosen supplies, purchased a mini kit, and made a *somewhat* concrete plan last year, but didn’t have the opportunity to do December Daily, I am repurposing those plans and am excited to tackle the challenge again this year!
