30 days::day 1

It's the beginning of a new challenge over here for me. I am putting more effort into taking pictures every day...the type that capture the "every day" moments that fill up our lives. I know that happiness really is all about the little things around here, and I want to put some energy into trying to capture some of those small moments with my camera. After getting some inspiration from Soulemama (who I have come to realize I am perma-inspired by)...I've decided to go on a 30 day venture of posting one photo a day of whatever it is that has spoken to me through sight. It is a good excuse to get some good one on one time with my camera and I think that, perhaps, it will become a little archive of thoughts and photos that I can look back on and reminisce about.
I will still be writing, because I really want to keep up that practice as well...but I probably won't be writing everyday.
Here is to day 1...and the 29 that will follow.
Peace.

First, that's a great photo. Second, thanks for visiting my blog. It's great to meet you. Sometimes I just can't believe the women I come across through their blogs.

Finally, I wanted to say that I've been gearing up for a post or two just like this where I take pictures of things/people that make me happy or that bring me joy. I'm going it -- shh. secret -- for my birthday next week. No one knows it's my birthday, though, so it will just be a 34 things that make me happy, which I am stealing from Hula Seventy.

Anyway, lovely blog here.

Aren't you going to tell us what it is or what it means to you? Or am I the only dumb one?? I'll take a guess...is it a donut whole maker?

I love your blog. Just discovered it through MB. I just started my own, but it's in fledgling stages, so maybe check back. I LOVE this photo. But I, like auntie vee, am curious about what it is. It's just beautiful, though. So simple and authentic and provoking and clean. And great light. Thanks.

this little picture is of the babes wooden mixer and cookies on top of their play kitchen with the sun shining through our kitchen window.
i was really drawn to the lighting and the simple composition of it all.
