a photo a day for the month of December - week 1

In and effort to get back into being more mindful, living in the moment and blogging, I remembered how much I loved doing the photo a day back in June which you can see here (where have those 5 months gone!).  Fat mum slim blog does this challenge every month, and here is a look at Decembers inspirational words.


I won't post each day but at the end of each week, so here is a look at my week one.

Day 1: "Fruit"



Day 2: "Grass"




Day 3: "Pop!"



Day 4: "Free" there really is nothing quite like watching a dog free to roam the beach.



Day 5: "me" my daughter drew this picture :D




Day 6: "joy is ......" looking through my nan's recipe books





Day 7: "weekends are for......." gardening, cooking and picking - although that's also most days!


This challenge really makes you look at the little things hidden in each day that we either miss being too busy or are distracted to notice.  It makes me be present and remember how beautiful our lives are with so many blessings and things to be grateful for :)

Ciao, Jan x

  4. Jan if you want some inspiration for a cookbook, check this one out I've been eyeing it off for a few years. Photos and recipes and the photos don't necessarily have to be of the recipes.
