Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge gave us the opportunity to be creative… (or maybe more creative than usual) with the prompt- Pick a topic from my photo. Cee’s photo prompt can be found at the link. It brought to my mind thoughts of sunny days and bright summer colors.

The colors of this picture reminded me of Cee’s photo prompt.
It might be cold outside but the blue sky makes me miss those warm summer days!
Just because!

Hope your days are filled with sunshine!


Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Close up

As I sit here dusting off my blog and preparing to get things moving again here, I’m keeping it simple for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Close ups.

It might not be the closest of ups and it might just look like a sad little dandelion resting in a Winnie the Pooh glass but to me it means everything. Little B is the happiest camper now that spring/summer has finally arrived. He wants to spend every waking minute outside playing. There aren’t enough hours in each day to fill the adventures and projects this little guy wants to complete. And it’s because I know this and at the exact minute when he came inside the house clutching one slightly bedraggled dandelion in his fist and presented it to me, that will treasure it forever. He’s three. He doesn’t know about Dandelion Fuzz. He only knows that this pretty yellow flower caught his eye and he wanted brighten someones day and share it with someone he loves. And he did.

Hope your day is filled with sunshine!


2015 Fave Photos


I have always loved taking pictures and I have albums filled with photos of my kids growing up. It was only in 2015 that I realized that I could do more than just snap pictures of my kids and the little guys. Taking part in photography challenges awakened a new interest for me and it’s one that I’m looking forward to working on in the upcoming year.

Here is a slideshow of some of my favorite photos from 2015:
