today marks the beginning of the lenten season. i have been looking forward to lent for some time now. when i was more active in my faith, lent always represented change to me. promise. a new beginning. taking time to reflect on my life and make changes and to foster deep self discipline. last year i just wasn't excited about life in general and didn't really even recognize lent. this year, however, i plan to fully immerse myself in it.
i making a special project also to journal in for the next 40 days.
i took this self shot the other day. i love it. i am going to use it for all of my profile pictures now.
i stumbled upon BeliefNet.com the other day and i am hooked. the site is Christian based with tons of inspirational articles on happiness, faith, physical and emotional health, leading an authentic life and so so so much more! there are forums and lots of ways to share and connect with others. and online support groups for just about anything. it's a lovely inspirational stop on my daily online reads. you should check it out! and join! friend me. i'm kateobrienx75 on the site.
i have a quick project to share today. it's something i have wanted to make for a long time and finally got around to. a little recipe book. a home for all of our tried and true favorite recipes. my book is 4x6 and perfect for just punching holes in a 4x6 print and adding the recipe to the back. that's my plan. to take a photograph of the dishes i make and then type out the recipe in wordpad, print it out and attach it to the back of the photo. punch two holes and add to the proper category. so simple. so cute!
have a great weekend!
