Amanda (aka The Lady Okie) inspired me. Last year she did something called Project 12 (*a photo on the first day of each month*), and this year, I’m playing along. Of course, my photos probably won’t be taken on the first day of each month, but what can I say? I’m a rebel and a rebel’s gotta…rebel. Regardless, you can expect a photo and a recap, in all its glory, of each month.
A family photo, shot by Lisa. Rue brought out her crazy eyes for the occasion, and Kiki is doing her best impression of a sullen, tortured teenager. #traumatized #sorrynotsorry
