Monday Listicles

I don’t know about you, but I am starting to feel autumn rolling in.

The weather has been warm and summer like, but leaves are starting to fall and trees are changing their colors. I think I like autumn best. It used to be winter for me, but there is something so dreamy about this time of the year I am converting as I get older. I think my camera will like it too.

Speaking of my photos I wanted to let you know my prints arrived last week and I decided to share one with you. I will publish the giveaway on Friday, but I just wanted all of you to know it is mostly just my way of saying thank you for being supportive and encouraging in the past few months helping me believe I can be a photographer. So if you would like to have something fun on your wall (or a birthday present for your husbands 50th) pencil Friday into your calender and come around to enter the giveaway sponsored by Stasha B Photography ( how cool is that, talking about my own self as a company?!).

Next week is Bits Of Bee’s turn to call a topic. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find her blog in the link up and read what she would like us to write about. To help you out a little: she lives not far north of me, has super cute kids and a great sense of humor. Also mad skills that will come in handy if she becomes a policewoman soon. OK, one more. Next to her link up will be the neatest photo of her pretty face. I pretty much did all the work for you tonight. You are welcome.

So last chance to talk summer! I decided to let my dog share with you his. It is true this one had no dog days of summer but it sure was a summer of my dog. Let’s see what your was like!

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

If my dog could talk I am sure this would be:

Local farm shop.

3. Circle

Do not download.

I had some wheels lined up for this prompt but then my son climbed into an obstacle at the mini golf course this afternoon…

 

4. Scarf

Do not download.

I brought some of my scarfs downstairs to attempt a self portrait and kiddo asked if he can try them on. Here is a bit of self adoration in the mirror.

 

5. Phone

46157

This one I really struggled with. We are not phone people. I took photos of my Blackberry but really, who wants to see that? I went as far as early 2009 in my photo library to find one of us “using” a phone. So here is my son, barely a year old messing around with a public phone.
