Anyway, here are our photos for the day.

A Moment in Time

My friend, Sara, lives in Germany. We are 5,076 miles apart. For the past 48 days, we have been documenting our mornings by photographs.

We even took a week to take our photos in real time. It was fun catching glimpses of what each of us were doing at the same exact time.

For the next 30 days, we are going to change things up a bit once again.

Instead of sharing only our mornings, we are going to give ourselves a bit more flexibility. We will capture any moment of our day, whether morning, noon or night.

Our moments in time, 5.076 Miles Apart.

So, here goes........

In Real Time #5

Day 46

So, 2:00 A.M I was still up and chatting online with Sara. It was 10:00 A.M. in Germany. I think she was a little annoyed with me for still being awake. In my defense, my hubby is away for the week. I always have a hard time falling asleep when he isn't home.

But I had someone else in my bed to snuggle with.

2:10 A.M. - Colorado

As for Sara, she was already wide awake and productive.

In Real Time #1

We have been having a blast documenting our mornings, but we thought it would be fun to change things up a bit.

For this week, we will do our 5,076 Miles Apart photos in real time. There is an 8 hour difference between the two of us. There are times when I sit down for lunch and she is getting ready for bed. There are other times when I am still awake on my computer at 11:00 at night, and she is waking up to start the next day.

Here is DAY 42 IN REAL TIME.

Cookies and Valentines

Day 41

Celebrating Valentine's Day 5,076 miles apart.

Good Morning Valentine! - 9:00 A.M. Germany

My morning was spent getting ready for my troop's first booth sale. I had to load up the car with cases and cases of cookies, get plenty of change and gather all the necessities, like our fun poster and Valentine's Tinsel. Unfortunately, my photo for the day was taken MUCH later in the afternoon.

Here are two of my Daisies. It was such a treat watching my troop sell cookies. They had so much fun with it and they were so stinking cute!
