Day 62 - Upside Down

Day 62 of the 365 photo challenge is “Upside Down.” Papa Bear’s beard is getting downright epic lately. I thought it needed to be shown in its full glory, upside down.

Day 61 - Whimsical

Day 61 of the 365 photo challenge is “Whimsical.” Yes, you may recognize that rainbow as the dress from our engagement photos! It is by far the most whimsical thing that I own. Unfortunately, it came out a bit blurry. I think I may have to recreate this one for a new profile photo for everything. Because my best colors are ALL OF THEM TOGETHER.

Rainbow Your World | Winter Color Palette

Shadows fall long and deep across unbroken white snow, and the quickly ebbing light paints the cold clear sky with icy pale hues.

That is the essence of the Winter color palette.

365 Photo Challenge | Day 40 | Through The Looking Glass

Day 40 - Through The Looking Glass

Day 40 of the 365 photo challenge is “Through The Looking Glass.” We have those bendy mirrors in the bathroom, and a pretty leaf shower curtain, and my blue hair makes me feel like a fairy, so this one was a natural. And no, I’m not nude, just wearing a tank top that ended up out of sight.
