30 days of gratefulness...Photo Inspiration

Yeah yeah, another photo challenge. They are everywhere and I've never met someone who hasn't done or seen one yet. I don't know why but they usually end up being overwhelming to me. Maybe because I don't have a smart phone, a decent camera on my phone or internet on my phone. Taking a picture every day involves getting out my Nikon (the only camera I own) and taking a pic and then uploading it to my computer and posting it. A little tedious and honestly, I have a million and three other things to do than take a picture of something green on Tuesday and make sure to post it for everyone. So I've fallen off the photo "challenge" wagon one too many times. Don't get me wrong, I love to take pictures and do so just about every day, but my phone only holds a few at a time and I only upload once a week from my camera, if I'm on top of it.

Anyway, I also love all the daily things I'm grateful for posts this time of year, but I'm still working on my 1000 gifts list and it's pretty much the same thing. So I'm basically a social networking "challenge" failure.

Until today...well maybe I shouldn't speak too soon, but I found this photo/gratefulness challenge and loved it!! Dani over on Positively Present posted this challenge and said a lot of things that, while they are just words and don't really change this challenge all that much, still encouraged me and appealed to me. She said to not think of this is a photo challenge but rather something to inspire you to live presently, appreciating the small things daily. She also made sure to point out that you can start when you want, post where you want and finish when you want. She said she is posting at the END of the thirty days!! LOVE it!  So here it is: Snap a picture of these 30 things to be thankful for, and be encouraged to look for more each day and inspired to live right now so that you don't miss any!

Join me if you like!!

PS: I have NO idea how often I will post, but here's my day one:

At least these are some of my favorites this time of year ;) And TJ's Pumpkin Butter...not pictured, silly me :/


  1. Oh that sounds like fun! I really want to try it too...but like you, afraid I may not finish (definitely known to do that) It's a neat way to document the blessings in life that we may overlook!

  2. mmmmm pumpkin!!!

    Love this challenge. I SUCK at those photo challenges too.. not only do i forget, but i am lazy!

    I really miss your blog voice... ;)

  3. it's intimidating to try to stick to a photo challenge, i agree!
    great first pic though! love me some pumpkin!!!
    i have that coffee in my maker right now for the morning brew.
