Jenny Meyerson recently offered up a photo challenge to tell our story through photos.
The assignment was to take 5 photos of:
1. Your morning routine.
2. The contents of something you carry around on a frequent basis.
3. A thing that you pass everyday that you have never taken a picture of.
4. Your happy place.
5. Someone who makes you smile.
I LOVE this idea. I may or may not succeed each month that she throws out this challenge, but I like the idea of it. It helps me with ideas of things that I take for granted that I might want to include in my project life album. And without further ado, here are my pictures:
Your morning routine
I had a couple of ideas of what to take a picture of, I almost went with the snooze button my alarm clock because that is DEFINITELY part of my morning routine - a part I would like to change, but still a part of it. Instead I went with the meds Claire & I take in the morning. Yay Allegra!
The contents of something you carry around on a frequent basis
There are only a few things that I carry around with me on a frequent basis, and I really don't want to show you what my purse looks like right now - it's kind of overflowing with receipts. Instead, here's my phone and my most frequently used apps.
A thing that you pass everyday that you have never taken a picture of
For the past 3 years, almost everyday on my way to work I pass this field of cows. Sometimes that cows are there, sometimes the cows are in another part of the pasture and I can't see them from the road. But for some reason, I really like these cows. I wish I got a closer picture of them, but this week they have been hanging out fairly far back from the road. This also reminds me of when I first started driving down 159th Street to get to my old job - back before they built subdivisions down the entire thing. Back then it was a donkey (that seriously looked like a zebra) that I really liked to see.
Your happy place
I had a really hard time coming up with a happy place. I'm not one of those people where places make me happy. People and activities make me happy. So, since I'm already including Claire has a person that makes me smile, we'll go with walking in a park/woods/trail. I don't do it very often, but I enjoy it when I do. Maybe that means I should try to make the time to do it more often.
Someone who makes you smile
No explanation needed...she just makes me smile.
Jenny Meyerson is awesome. I don't actually KNOW her, but I enjoy reading her blog: http://www.jennymeyerson.com/.
