Monday Listicles

Happy Listicling!

How was your Thanksgiving? I hope you celebrated surrounded by the everyone and everything you are thankful for and loads of pie. I had a big slice of three different pies. And on Black Friday I treated myself to private sessions with my personal trainer. As you can see pie made me do it. I would much rather have bought myself something pretty to put in my camera bag, but not this time. If you did though, check out the special offer I posted about on Friday.

Last time Kerstin suggested we write about ten things we learned about this year. I truly enjoyed reading your lists. Thank you all for cheering me on in my running adventures. I never thought I would, but I am really enjoying running. Specially writing about it on a Sunday morning in my pajamas.

This week Jessica suggested we share 10 PHOTOS FROM OUR PHONE. She also gave us an alternative option: 10 NAMES YOU CONSIDERED FOR YOUR KIDS. Gotta love a girl who is full of great ideas, thank you Jessee!

Next Listicle is brought to you by the beautiful lady behind The Bonny Bard:

A bit of a challenge for us modest people, but write a list of 10 REASONS I AM GREAT. ( not me. You. Yes, YOU!)

Before I start my list this week, a little background story. My dear friend Melveen and I share our lives every day via messages and photos. We are separated by the ocean and even with 2889 miles between us I feel we spend our days together. I was initially going to share with you my 10 most liked Instagram clicks. But Melveen put together 10 photos of our everyday for you and I love this so very much it might be my favorite 10 images ever. I am on the left and she is on the right. As you can see, we have so much in common! These are unedited phone shots that we send each other during the day. For more stunning Hawaii snapshots, you may find Melveen on Instagram.

Thank you Melly for being my BFF. Sending you big love from my island to yours!

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




And because we got a little carried away and totaled 12, here are all of them:

PS: you might want to link your list with Suzi the Boca Frau. She has a weekly Instagram round up. Now thats a nice twofer ha?

    My dearest BFF… Although there are 2887 miles between us, every day is truly a gift when shared with the ones you love. Thank you for your daily dose of love & laughter! (P.S. They look great side by side)

    Sadly, there’s no way for me to get my phone photos to my computer and they’re crappy quality anyway, and we didn’t have many other names for our kids. Wah! So I can’t participate this week, although I did create my own list of 10 crushes I’ve had. But I’ll still be checking out the other lists – love your photos, Stasha! absolutely beautiful! I LOVE the dandelion.

      You can join in with any list of ten. We post suggestions, but anything goes 🙂 Specially crushes!

  3. I have to agree with Melveen!! The photos look wonderful side by side. And I thank you for your daily IG pics which always put a smile on my face. I love all the adventures you, Little J & Max get up to… and Where’s Waldo has been so much fun!! I can’t wait to get my iPad so I can view your pics in a bigger format! 🙂
    Thanks my lovely friend.

    Wow, those photos really make me a bit green with envy… 😉 Couldn’t help but laugh at your first paragrah:pie never makes me run – only TO the pie, but I guess that’s not what you meant… 😉

    Unfortunately I had to take a hiatus from Monday Listicles as I have neither a passion for photography / instagram nor any babies / baby names. If my ego decides to grow within this week, I will join you back next week! 😉

      Anja, you can join with any list, not just the ones suggested. And between us, I am not sure how I will pull of next weeks prompt! But I do ike a challenge. Maybe that is one of the reasons I am great ??! 😉

    You seriously always have the best pictures! XOXO I need to post my Listicles for today, but I am excited about next week’s topic because I can already use a little post positivity from myself lately….

    I do believe with those twelve combined photos you would make the best calendar! And as for this week’s topic, I may be one of the only Americans who doesn’t take pix w/a phone, however I am a NAME NERD, so option #2 is right up my alley!

    I think this is the coolest thing, ever. You both take such fantastic photos. If I ever find a BFF, I hope we can do something like this, too. 🙂

  9. Those are fantastic!! I am amazed by them, and I already knew you were a great photographer!! They are just stunning-I don’t even know what to say! Me…speechless…now that’s rare! And so are your pictures-rare. Beautiful!
