I think there is something seriously wrong with me.
I get stressed out every summer because it seems like we have things to do every weekend (4 weddings this year!) and I don’t have much time to myself. They’re all fun things – birthday parties, vacations, baseball games, weddings, concerts, etc. – so I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, but for someone who really values that time at home just spent being lazy and curled up with a cat and a book, it sometimes puts me in panic mode. Who is going to do all the cleaning?? All the relaxing?? All the nothing??
So what do I do? I make more plans! Commit to more things!! Me. I make them. Myself. This girl.
I will never learn.
Having a Spring Bucket List and a 30 Day Workout Challenge going on right now wasn’t enough, so now I’m part of a Weekly Photo Challenge! A friend and I decided that we need a little kick in the butt to make us get out there and take some photos. I am all for a little bit of accountability and, frankly, if I didn’t have this blog, I don’t think I would bother with those bucket lists and challenges. It’s having to commit to something publicly that keeps me motivated because I don’t want to come back to you guys and say “hey, guess what? I suck. I quit.”
So. Weekly Photo Challenge. We’re going to pick a new theme every Friday and give ourselves 1 week to take a few pictures related to that theme. Then on the following Friday, we will share our best work and pick a new theme. This first week’s theme is Spring!
Here are a few of my favorite Spring photos that I took last year. I’m hoping to be able to step up my game a little bit this year and end up with some that I like even better than these.
Stay tuned. July’s theme might be “my couch” just to make sure that I actually get to see it for a bit…
