Countdown to 30 | An Instagram #PhotoADay Project

This past month, I participated in a #PhotoADay project on Instagram. A month before turning 30, I decided that I needed to do something creative to commemorate such an important birthday. They say that it takes 30 days to start a new routine… since life always has the tendency to pass you by in the blink of an eye*, why not carpe diem a specific moment each day that stands out. Simplicity. Less is more. Although I consider myself a private person (shocker!) and don’t usually like sharing super personal details online, it was time to step out of my comfort zone to do just that.

Below, you can see a collection of snaps that tell the story of events that took place during the final month of my 20s. From leading a summer photography camp to track practice,  traveling to Florida for professional development to wearing princess tiaras, meeting Debussy (my cousin’s adorable b&w kitten) and jell-o shots made by a running friend for our birthday bash on the rooftop, it’s been a memorable month. And now I can look back with the utmost nostalgia…

This project was an excellent way to bid farewell to my 20s! Now that I am officially 30 (no matter how weird it is for me to say), I’m even more excited for what the future holds!! I may be getting “older”, but I’m also getting wiser. Should I do a similar project during the final month of being 39, I wonder how different (or similar) the photos will be…

Have you done a photo #countdown project to commemorate a special time in your life? Feel free to share it in the comments section!
