February - did you know?

The launch and first month of the I AM MORE blog was a huge success! And that is all due to YOU!

I can't say thank you enough. I can't express in words how touched and overwhelmed I was to receive so many emails and all the heartfelt messages that accompanied them. My "hope" was to be able to get enough participants to be able to post 1 photo a day Monday - Friday. Let's face it, this is a new blog, a new concept and I honestly I was not sure how well it would be received and if anyone would actually jump on board.

Did you know - I received enough photos to post 3 every day, 7 days a week and some days I even posted 4 photos?

Did you know - I received photos from 21 US States and also from England, Germany, Singapore, the Dutch Caribbean, Canada and Switzerland? Thank you.

**Did you know - I need everyone reading this to submit a photo for March's theme Survivor. Yes I am talking to you ;)  This blog continues to go on and thrive only by your participation. I look forward finding out your story through your photos.**

psst....did you know that the woman behind the Brassy Apple blog is also the woman behind this one? Had some people that didn't realize the connection this week. you know :)

Not the TV show Survivor, but I AM a Survivor of........

The theme for March is Survivor. 

Send in your photos that have captured or show events, moments, objects and/or YOU relating to this Survival theme. We all have survived something in our life. Whether it's an everyday struggle to a life changing event.

Have you "Survived" a bad day? What about other daily milestones - Moving, raising a teenager, raising twins/triplets, childbirth, school, renovating, deployment, training or even financially.

Photo courtesy of Shelly 

"There are so many pictures that can fit into this category! But pretty much, if I can survive THIS mess... then I feel like I've accomplished a LOT in a day :)" - Shelley


Or does your Survivor Story go deeper. Have you Survived a tragedy, loss, death, loss of limb, sickness, disease, major surgery, etc.

Photo courtesy of Amelia

"I survived spinal fusion and emotional alignment.  The photo you see is proof that when things look and feel the worst, deciding to survive, makes it so" - Amelia 

Maybe you haven't captured your Survivor moment in a photo yet or thought of capturing it. Maybe your Survival story isn't over yet. But whether it's everyday stuff or something more monumental, it's your history. It's part of YOU and maybe it's needs to be captured in a photo at least once. Remember by sharing we never know who we may help, strengthen or relate too.

**Please don't forget the submission guidelines. You can start sending in your photos anytime. I will start posting on March 1st. **
