So, I lied. I said there wouldn’t be any more vacation photos, but as I finished up my January photo challenge, I realized there are a large number of photos from Palm Springs. Oh, well! We can feel warm for a little bit longer.
Also, Anika fell a bit behind with taking photos, and is trying to catch up now that we’re home. In the meantime, here are the photos I took:
Day 12: Something I’m thankful for
Day 13: Happy Picture
Day 14: An Accomplishment
All packed up and ready to go!
Day 15: Someone you admire
Day 16: Using selective color
Day 17: A Friend
Day 18: In Black and White
Day 19: Strength
Day 20: Me
Day 21: Accessories
Okay, only one accessory, but I’m not huge on accessories anyway! Next to my wedding and engagement rings, this is the most meaningful accessory I own.:)
Day 22: Showing Warmth
Day 23: Inspired by Media
A bit different than my usual subject matter, but she captured my attention, with her face turned up to the sun, towering above us, but still small in comparison to the mountains surrounding us.
I never knew that Marilyn Monroe lived in Palm Springs, and that she died when she was 36 years old. I’m turning 36 this summer. She got a lot done in her 36 years of living. For some reason, that thought has stayed with me. We get to choose what we do with the time we have, and how we will be remembered.
Day 24: Picture With a Caption
Or a quote.:)
Day 25: People
Day 26: A Picture Showing Love
My friend Sarah inspires me to love my girls more gently. To me, this photo sums up so much of who she is.
I emailed Ben a shopping list this week – it’s evidence of his birthday, because I asked him to buy everything I’d need to make his favorites
Day 28: Picture of Celebration
We celebrated yesterday. This was Kaylia’s work of art:
Day 29: A Picture That Represents Life
Whenever I stumble across these little signs of a little person having fun and leaving behind some evidence, I always stop to smile and enjoy it, because someday, there will be no little dolls or toys in odd and funny places. I love the life that a scene like this represents!:)
Day 30: Numbers
Day 31: A Goal I Have
To play piano again someday! Eight years since tendonitis stopped me. But I’m lifting weights again! Maybe this year will be the year it happens …
