making a list

Day One of Picture The Holidays!

I’m having flashbacks of my 365 project, doing a daily photo. If I can manage 365 days, surely I can manage 31? heh.

We shall see.

The prompt today is “holding onto gratitude” …

making a list

So grateful, every single day, for the people on this list.

    Oh yes, I could have picked that photo out as yours. You rock the bokeh.
    So glad to be joining this fun (hope I can keep up, I’m certain you can!)

    I’m sorry. I see something inherently wrong with this picture.

    Apparently, my name isn’t on that list. That needs to be adjusted at once.


    It’s a beautiful photo. And I don’t know what bokah and texture means. I am not a photo girl. But I do know that I love you and seeing your handwriting just lifted my world up. It’s very, very pretty and you are so uber talented it’s just stupid. I love you.
