Photo Blogging Challenge – Five

march2018

The theme for the March Photo Blogging Challenge was “Five”.

I had trouble finding time to take photos this month, but here’s what I came up with.

Five tiny fingers on my daughter’s hand.

Her nails can only be trimmed while she’s sleeping.

How adorable is this announcement from my friend that she’s having twins?!

She’s a math teacher and I love her creativity!

 

Thanks for checking out my photos!

YWCA Cambridge

It’s International Women’s Day and I can’t think of a better time to write about the YWCA in Cambridge, MA.

You may think of the YWCA as a gym, but it’s actually a nonprofit that does so much more!

The YWCA Cambridge is an institution in Cambridge and Marshfield, a cornerstone for providing safe, affordable accommodations for women and families and an advocate for human rights.

With 103 units of single room occupancy housing for single women and a 10-bed shelter for homeless families, the YWCA is the city’s largest residential housing provider for women.

Our Marshfield Branch, offers a reasonably priced summer day camp program to families in Marshfield and the surrounding communities.

The YWCA Cambridge is dedicated to eliminating racism empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

As far as health and wellness:
Boston Classical Soo Bahk Do, a Korean martial art, has recently become a YWCA Cambridge program. The main building hosts classes in Tai Chi, Latin Dance, Pilates, Gyrotonics, and more!

When my baby is a little older, I’ll get a sitter and sign up for a workout class.

Since I’ve worked in fundraising for nonprofits for over 10 years, I love when I can support other nonprofits and get a workout at the same time!

Like others, my first image was taken around Easter.

These eggs were decorating the lobby of my apartment building.

I love the pink sunset in this photo – taken on Cape Cod – in Chatham, MA.

The seagull waiting for his dinner at the fish pier also made me smile.

This is the Boston Tea Party Museum

I like the yellow of the ship, red of the building, and even the blue windows of the new construction in the city.

This is from the carousel on Boston Common

I took this photo on the Saturday of Boston Marathon weekend – on a fun walk through the city.

This final photo is from the restaurant Novara in Milton, MA.
The space used to be a movie theater and they kept some of the posters.

I was amused that a movie that stars mostly black & white dogs was advertising it’s in Technicolor.

Thanks for checking out my photos this month. I always have fun taking photos that fit the theme all month, then seeing which 5 speak to me as the best to feature.

Did you know there are only 4 female Governors in the USA?

The panelists in the photo above all ran for Governor in MA but lost.

Their message was to keep running!

The Boston Globe had a great article on this inspiring night! In Faneuil Hall, a call to service for a new generation of women

Speaking of inspiring women, these are 4 items I bought at The Lady Project Summit last weekend.

All the books were signed by their authors at the Summit.

There are more than 4 trophies here from a weight lifting competition that my brother competed in, but I’m taking some creative license here. 🙂

I’m so proud of my brother David and unbelievably impressed by his weight lifting abilities!

His results for the day were a 465 pound deadlift, 365 pound squat, and 205 pound bench. Just wow!

I was happy to be able to be in the audience to cheer him on.
