April Photo Diary

April 1st : Early Morning

Reading Ms. Toody Goo Shoes Photo Diary for March and the reminder to start one for April ( and link up in May )

Her photo diary post

The gist of it is that you take a photo every day for the month of April…create a post about it, and then link up with her and Claire from a little CLAIREification between May 1 and 7. Check here for more info. I committed to doing / trying this for the month of April since it’s new and I wanted to see if I could keep up. I don’t lead all that much of an exciting life…so for more excitement you’d better check out the party :)
