Happy Halloween Everyone!
We arrived home from Vegas last night. I am so grateful to my parents and my hubby for making my Golden Birthday so special. We had such a wonderful time just hanging out together, and I felt very loved and very lucky.
I’m a little behind on blogging because of vegas, but I’ve got two posts for you today to make up for it. And I’m so excited about what’s in store for tomorrow: Golden November!!!
I’m still loving the DIY Photo a day project I started in September. I chose a long list of possible prompts for the month without assigning them to a specific day. I tried to pick some that I knew were easy (like #M+V or #love or my cat #Scratch’n), but I also wanted words that could be broadly interpreted.
Each day I either purposefully choose the prompt I am going to photograph, or more often, I just keep the list handy and take advantage of photo opportunities as they are happening.
It has been a real adjustment in my every day life to take so many pictures all the time and to think about taking pictures. I have to admit sometimes it feels instrusive on moments as they’re happening to stop and take a snapshot. That said, I am consistently grateful for the photos after the fact.
Here are the photos so far for October (just missing today, which is TBD):
And here’s my photo a day plan for November. I’ve made a few changes to November’s prompts. I’ve taken out #birthday and added #thankful and #joy. Here’s November:
I hope you’ll join me this month or follow along on Instagram (@notmerelyliving).
Stay tuned for the last installment of Not Merely Voting this afternoon!
