About our blog:
Making It Daily is a shared blog. In 2013, Claire, KHP and Kristen R. launched this blog as a way to track ourselves as we tackled three different 365 projects:
Claire: Wrote every day
KHP: Made art every day
Kristen R: Ran every day
We did these things every day for one full year. And now, we use this blog as a way to stay connected to another.
Although we still each carve out a little time every week to do these things, we take turns posting occasionally. We're busy working moms, partners, runners, writers, artists and more -- just trying to make it daily.
Got a passion? Join us in making it daily.

I’ve had several tiny moments of Zen during the second week of our family’s change but, frankly, I’m not sure what to make of these moments. They come in waves: Pockets of peace and beauty, but they are conflicted with … Continue reading
My daughter LP has always had an extremely vivid imagination and at 6 she still gets reality mixed up with her imaginary world. When she was 2 years old she pretended that Diego and Baby Jaguar were her companions. We … Continue reading
The end of this week feels so surreal and I know that trying to find the words to express my emotions will not do it justice. I didn’t intend to deviate from my training schedule this week. Life, as it … Continue reading
