Wow 2 posts in one day! I actually forgot to mention that I have accepted a 30 day challenge my friend posted on her blog. It's a challenge to do (or do not) do something for 30 days. It can be anything really. I chose to take one picture a day, because I have friends who have done this and really enjoyed it. Plus, I love taking pictures and feel I don't do enough of it.

So why don't you do something (or don't do something) for 30 days too! It's a great challenge! Here's my opinions why...

1.) I have heard it takes 21 days to break a habit. You can choose to not do something for 21 days, for example... "I will not smoke for 21 days". Now THAT is a great goal! Smoking is terrible for you. If you can stop smoking for 21 days, why not go 30 days? Why not push yourself a little further? Can you see how BIG of an accomplishment that would be? That is something to really be proud of, and one nasty habit that would do you good to kick to the "nasty habit curb" your neighbors have been complaining about. No one wants to look at your filthy lungs. Sick. (You can do it. Trust me.)

2.) I have also heard it takes 21 days to make a habit. It's healthy habit time! "I will run everyday for 21 days." That is also a great habit to form! I don't know about any of you, but I wish I were a runner. I hate running. I hate it! I know it would be so good for me, so maybe this is a challenge I should take after this one.

3.)  If you chose to do something everyday for 30 days, imagine what you would have to show for those 30 days. It doesn't matter if it is 30 crunches everyday, walk on a different trail everyday, take a picture everyday, or do something you have never done before everyday... Any of these goals would be beneficial to you. Your 2 pack stomach may develop into a 3 pack! Or you may take some really beautiful pictures you may have never taken before! Besides, if you don't take the 30 day challenge we both know you will just sit on the couch creating a permanent butt imprint that everyone will see when they come over and they will all whisper behind your back about how you are such a couch potato. And I know you don't want that.

So think about it. Think about what you want to do, and read this blog...

Here are my first week of pictures.

#1 - Walk To School

#2 - Mannequin Alley

#3- Time Flies

#4 - Lunch Date

#5 - Temple Square

#6 - Purdies

#7 - Self

#8 - Longest Day 

Those are my first 8 photos. I hope you like them :-) I really like using effects on my photos. I think it makes them more appropriate for what I am feeling in the moment. I'll post some more later, and I promise I will have another project for you soon. I can be such a slacker. I'll have to throw an anti-slacker 30 day challenge into the mix too.

Till next time, stay happy!! And if you got them blues then watch this video...  Son House- "Death Letter"

I love this song!!
