After some serious debates on Project 365, I made my choice.
I was conflicted over whether I should start with Dec. 29 or Jan. 1. I was thinking this would mess up my "Week of" cards & not sure how my album would end. "Would I come up short?" & end my year 3 days early since I started in Dec.?
Finally I bit the bullet & decided I'd start on Jan. 1st. This way my pics would all be from 2009.
Thanks to everyone for their input!
