I have truly enjoyed setting up this Blog and receiving each and every photo. Truly. I wasn't looking for another project to do but felt the push to pursue this for whatever reason. That reason? I still don't know.
I do know that I love to see your photos and read the messages that are attached to them. Thank you for sharing.
I would love to hear your thoughts on upcoming themes to possibly consider. What would be a fun theme to share photos of? What do we need to share photos of? What is a topic you would like to see photos of?
Please post your thoughts or email them to me directly!
I wanted to highlight her Project Life because it fits in perfectly with what this blog is all about. Sharing photos, sharing pieces of who we are and documenting it.

With Mother's day coming up it should be easy to capture YOU as a mother. Yup, I said you. And because we are usually behind the camera, I am "challenging" you to step in front of it and capture yourself.

You could be with your children or without. You could be captured in a "real mommy" moment or poised and perfect as June Cleaver or with YOUR own mother.
"I haven't always loved my hair. In fact, at times it was the thing I hated most about me...but I have learned to embrace it. toloveit. It seems, sometimes, that people define me by this mane. But, I know I am so much more than a unique set of curls. I am ME!!" - Heather
"My smile definitely makes me, ME. I have a huge smile and very large teeth. I love my smile, it's just like my Granddad's was. Most people don't recognize me unless I am smiling, and sometimes I get asked if I am "ok" when I'm not smiling. It makes a big difference in my expression. Luckily, I almost always have a smile on my face." - Amber
"This picture represents my love of my nose. I used to hate my nose because it is so crooked on my face! But once I realized that my mother and my grandmother have thesame exact noseI fell in LOVE with it!! It is part of my DNA! God gave me this nose so I would always remember and think of my Mom and Grandma, who have both passed away, every time I look in the mirror." - Skye
"I love the fact that I am goofy. I love to laugh and have a good time, and I try to make the best of every situation.I'm constantley the one cracking jokes and doing funny things to get people to smile. Life is better with a smile!" - Suzie
Declare it - "I am ME!"What is it that you love about yourself? Yes it's ok to love yourself. You'd better, because you are with yourself 24 hours a day.
Do you love your eyes, your freckles, your wiry hair? Do you love your hands, your build, your nose, your coloring? Do you love the way your accessorize or dress? Are you bold, shy, loud, brave, happy, quiet?
Embrace what makes you, YOU. Let's build each other up as women. I would love to have the "younger" generation participate this month as well. Allow your daughter(s) to express or find out what they love about themselves. Build their self confidence and self image as they "declare it" too.
Capture and share one of those things this month. It's great to be YOU, now share it... (details on how to SUBMIT here)
