Daenel Coffee and Camera {living outside the stacks} week 1 self portrait

Happy 2017 to you!

You guys, I’m so excited for the year ahead. Not that I have anything big planned. I’m just looking forward to starting over and getting the opportunity to start the year with a clean slate. I know every day that we wake up is the opportunity to begin anew, but there’s something about starting a whole new year, amiright?

As with every year, I’m starting a photography project. Instead of trying a 365 because I usually quit after the first week, I’m going to try a 52 week project. I think being obligated to pick up my camera and shoot intentionally once per week is pressure enough, don’t you? Anyway, I’ll be following the prompts provided by Lashawn from Everyday Eyecandy. Feel free to join in or just offer up encouragement. I’ll be posting my photos on Instagram, you can see the everyone’s photos by following the hashtag #eyecandyproject52.

I’m still looking for a Bible study… We have one at our church and one at another church that I attended that I enjoyed, but I like the online ones as well. Are you participating any online studies? Care to share?

I said this before, but I want to reiterate it: I want this blog and the Facebook page to be more interactive. So, if there’s anything you want to talk about or anything that you’d like to see, just give me a yell and we’ll give it a try.

There’ll probably be fewer fashion/style posts on the blog. I’ll keep posting with the Ageless Style Bloggers, but the weekly posts? Not so much. Honestly, I’m kind of tired of posting clothes. I think y’all have seen most of what’s in my closet and the other stuff, well, it’s really not all that interesting.

So, what are you looking forward to in 2017?
