Thirty-One Days of Summer 2016

10 comments , Share It:

Happy Summer, friends! I've never been a huge summer lover (hello 115° Arizona summers!) but somehow as I get older, the though of it excites me more and I mind it less. Also, having a summer birthday might contribute to the excitement!

During the summer of 2014 + 2015, I've been doing a little photo challenge in which I document the joys and moments of summer, & this year I'm doing it again & extending the invitation to you! This challenge hasn't only allowed me to capture some of my favorite photos but it pushes me to get out there and live a fulfilling life + find or make adventures!

Starting July 1st, I will be starting the "Thirty-One Days of Summer 2016" challenge, in which I will take a photo every day for the month of July and will be blogging my results on a weekly basis. And like I mentioned above, I want you to join me on this journey! DSLR or iPhone, it doesn't matter what equipment you have, the point of this challenge is to step out and be creative and make happy moments!

>>More Details
-DSLR photos or iPhone, or a mix of both! Whatever you want!
-Let's encourage each other and share our photos on Instagram using the hashtag #thirtyonedaysofsummer2016. Yay for community! (Follow me on Instagram here!)
-I'll be blogging my photos weekly, feel free to do the same or post whenever you have time! (If we have enough people, I can even set up a linky so we can visit each others posts!)
-One thing that has happened to me before is that on a busy day, I might forget to take my camera out for the day & end up taking a lame night shot of the dust on the rug or something crazy and totally unmeaningful. This year I'm gonna do my best to be disciplined and intentional first of all, but if I miss a shot, I'd rather make it up the next day with a creative shot that means something. So, feel free to do the same!

I'm so excited about this! Will you join me in this challenge?

And I Then I Took Pictures Of My Newborn Puppies

About a month ago, my sweet dog Bella had puppies {again!} While I had been keeping her in a pen in hopes of having her take a break, she ended up escaping one day and well...here we are again! But with their sweet faces, how can I be mad?

After realizing they enjoyed being swaddled, I couldn't resist but capture these photos of them! And oh man, they melt my heart! Just look at these sweet faces and tell me if they don't melt yours!
