April is one of my favorite months. Why? Because it’s my birthday month and it screams spring to me!
April makes me think of tulips, Easter egg hunts, and Raincoats. And it makes me want to pull out my camera and take all the photos.
Of course, this year is different. We are all at home. Or isolating ourselves as much as possible.
Life is so different than the last two years I've done the April Photo a Day and even the first two months of the Cherish Everyday 365.
Life is different.
What we hope to do during this time is to give you something else to focus on. We want you to document this extraordinary time. To help you capture those little everyday moments in the chaos and monotony of our lives right now.
Because years from now, our children will look back on this time and try to remember what their lives were like. The feel of it.
I don't know about you, but I want my son to remember not only the fact that we were social distancing but how the three of us spent time together. Our moods, our laughter, our tears, our life.
SO! Starting next Wednesday, April 1st, join us on Instagram for a photo challenge to spark your creativity and just capture your version of spring.
Remember, even if you just want to do a month at a time, you can jump in! Instead of a 365, you can just do the April Photo a Day challenge. Just keep taking photos!
Remember, don't fall in the trap of…I don't know what to post. These prompts are just guidelines to be interpreted in any way you want. We want them to fit your life. Think of these photos that you are taking this year as a way to visually journal your life every day. Think: what do I want to say about this day? And the photo will follow!
If you notice, there are two numbers in front of the prompts. The first one is the day of the month, the second is the day of the 365. That way, you can keep up with what day you are on!
This is YOU documenting your life. This is YOUR project, we are just the guides.
How do you participate in the Cherish Everyday 365/April Photo a Day?
Participating is simple!
You can join at any time! If you are just joining us for April, that's ok! If you just want to do April, that's ok too!
Just check the list every day and take a photo using the prompt as your Inspiration.
Then, share your photo on Instagram using the hashtags #cherisheveryday365 or #cherisheveryday365_April and/or #everydayphotoaday ( SO MANY HASHTAGS)
Go through the #cherisheveryday365 and the #cherisheveryday_april hashtags to like and comment to be a part of the community.
