May Challenge: 31 days of spring

31 days of MayI am definitely feeling the spring vibes, and it’s my favorite season for a reason. I have been getting ready for spring by planning what will go into my garden boxes (almost built!), surrounding myself with greenery, and loving every minute of the spring blooms I never even knew existed in my yard. What a beautiful surprise.

For the month of May, I am challenging myself to intentionally notice the beauty of nature that surrounds me. My goal is to take a photo every single day this month to capture the beauty of spring. Yeah, yeah, yeah…I know it’s already the 4th of May and so I already fell behind on my daily challenge. But I don’t think it’s ever too late to be intentional about the world around us. Don’t you agree?

Join me in my challenge, and share your photos with me!

Also, I plan on posting my March Challenge (31 days of healing) very soon – I am so slow at developing my last roll of film with some of my March challenge photos on it. It will happen soon. I promise. Stay tuned, and share your springtime photos with me!

December Challenge

Photo a Day ChallengeOkay, so goodness knows I’ve tried the “photo a day” challenge many times, but I always seem to fall short. By a lot. It’s harder than you think to take a photo every day for a year. Well, at least it is for me.

However, I find myself taking less photographs as of late, and I think it’s about time to start back up again! Besides, I find that it makes life a little more interesting when I try to fill it with new things to photograph. Seeing the same ol’, same ol’ every day gets kind of boring. While the mundane parts of our days are often the most beautiful, it’s also exciting to stretch ourselves and try something new. This is great inspiration for that. And I love adventures.

This time, I will take it a month at a time. Goals are more achievable when you start off small, right? December is a great time to start because it’s the holidays, and everyone is usually up for more fun, happy times, gatherings, and comfort. 

Most of my photographs are captured on film, so I probably won’t be sharing them until January. But in the meantime, to get my inspiration going and making sure I am keeping myself accountable, I will post a photo a day on Instagram as well. Follow my Instagram photo a day adventures here (@shrista)!

Since it’s already December (!!!), I have already posted my first photo! Huey’s first walk in his bright yellow raincoat. Yucky weather doesn’t have a thing on adorable puppies in raincoats. Yeah, it may be overkill. But at least he’s warm and dry!
