I am challenging myself to post a photo each day of the year. I am hoping that this challenge will encourage me to keep my eyes open for the wonders around me, document a great year and improve my photography techniques.

07-20-14 Dusted Holden does not like me spraying him with the Skin So Soft solution to keep the bugs off. So after I spray him, he rolls in the dirt. :)

06-16-14 Foxglove Forest

06-16-14 Foxglove Forest Today is my birthday. I've decided to share something I am thankful for each day. Decided to do it here, since this is a place I visit daily. My photos may or might not relate each day. Happy people are thankful people. I am thankful that I got to hear my sweet parents sing Happy Birthday to me over the phone 3 times in the last day. They will never make the top 40 but each year when I hear their sweet and possibly slightly off tune voices faithfully singing to me, I know to cherish and not take these sweet moments for granted. They called me on my home and cell phone yesterday and sang Happy Birthday Tomorrow... just in case they missed me today. :)
