So this year, I wanted to do a 365 day project, and am so glad that I know myself well enough to just say no.  I finally caught up today, so thought I would write a quick blog post about my last 4 weeks of images…

The group is 52 weeks of love, one picture a week for the year, of things that you love.  The first four themes were up to me, but next week another member of the group will do the picking. 

First theme of the week was Purple.  A seemingly simple theme, I mean I love purple, how hard could that be? Well, I don’t really have a lot of things that are purple that I love… so, I incorporated my puppy, Cooper with his purple toy.



Second theme of the week was On the Shelf… what in the heck? Yea, I picked it.  I was stumped, I mean, I wanted a challenge, but I needed a super cool picture… I love to read, I could read a book in a day if I didn’t have three kids… but I still read whenever I can.  I love, love, LOVE the book “East of Eden” by John Steinbeck.  It’s a beautifully written book set in Salinas Valley.  When I read that book, the words are like butter that melt in my mouth…. and like Pringles, I can’t eat just one.  So, here, on the shelf home is my favorite novel.


Third theme of the week was Self… I wanted to get more tattoo and less face, but… hmm… yea, self isn’t my super strong point.  That’s ok I guess.

And lastly, this is my Texture.  This is part of an old lamp that I have.  I absolutely love the lamp, the memory of how I got it and where I was, and who I was with. 


Next weeks themes are all Valentine based, and I want to get outside the box with them… so I hope that it’s a can do for me!

Until next time,
