30 Days of Gratitude

For the month of November, I have been snapping a photo of the everyday as an exercise in appreciating what is taken for granted. I drew inspiration from this post, and challenged anyone interested in doing the same to join me and link up here in this space at the end of the month.

Well, it's the 30th! What did you find and capture day to day this month? What did your lens bring focus to that you might have otherwise not given a second thought? Were you surprised by what you saw, what you captured?

I must admit, there were some days when I found it challenging to find something representative of the item of the day. There were other days where I found multiple opportunities to capture what I was looking for.

On the whole I did enjoy this challenge, and it may turn out to be a tradition worth repeating in another year... we'll see!

Anyho, without further adieu, I present my 30 Days of Gratitude:

1: Favorite Food

2: Smile

3: Happiness 

4: Leaves

5: Morning Light

6: Books

7: Something Funny

8: Favorite Color

9: Inspiring Person(s)

10: Nature

11: Something Old

12: Hands

13: Written Words (or Numbers)

14: Movement

15: Technology

16: Animals 

17: Memories (I cheated here and scanned an old photo of my little bro years ago at a Thanksgiving table)

18: Something New

19: Best Friend(s)

20: Seasonal

21: Where You Sleep (apparently not just me)

22: Clothing

23: In Your Closet

24: Gratitude

25: Artwork

26: Transportation

27: Daily Routine

28: Nighttime

29: Light

30: Self Portrait (as I am in the morning, before babies wake- and before makeup- when there's quiet enough for concentration, writing, focus)

So, what did you find yourself feeling grateful for this month?
