Photo Blogging Challenge – Fun

The theme for the June Photo Blogging Challenge was “Fun”.

My 6 month old daughter, Elise, and I keep busy, so we had a lot of options for photos to share!

The theme for the May Photo Blogging Challenge was Outdoor Activities.

Since I was participating in the RACE Cancer Foundation May Challenge, my main outdoor activity was walking with my daughter in her stroller.

Here are some of my favorite sites from our walks:

Ducklings

The famous Make Way For Ducklings statue in Boston – we walked over 4 miles that day!

Cow

I hope you enjoyed my 5 photos this month!

I’m looking forward to checking out other bloggers challenge photos.

Photo Blogging Challenge – One Person

header

When I read the theme for the April photo blogging challenge, I knew immediately who my “one person” would be: my infant daughter Elise.

I often joke that it’s my baby’s world – we just live in it. Some of the photos will be of Elise and some from her perspective.

Enjoy!

Photo Blogging Challenge – Simple

Simple

The theme for the February Photo Blogging Challenge was “Simple”.

I decided to tweak the theme a little to “Simple Joy”.

These photos are all going to feature my 2 month old daughter.

The theme for the October photo blogging challenge was “Photographer’s Choice”.

This worked out for me since my October has been super busy work and life wise.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so a lot of my photos were taken at events for my employer, RESPOND – working to end domestic violence.

Photo Blogging Challenge – Summer Fun

august-2017-results

The theme for the August photo blogging challenge was “Summer Fun”.

Summer has been so busy for me this year that not all the photos I’m going to feature were taken in August, but they were all taken by me in the summer of 2017.

IMG_20170617_133241451.jpg

The Tall Ships Festival came to Boston this summer and I watched the parade of sale from Castle Island in South Boston with my husband & in-laws.

We had a great day and a beautiful view!

I also joined my in-laws for a weekend on their vacation to Plymouth, MA.

This lobster was one of many on display – not far from Plymouth rock.
