My Life in Snapshot + Photo-a-Day Update

Hello again!
Here’s a bit of my life as captured by my little iPod Touch (and a few by Reuben’s Droid).
1. Latte art by my bro-in-law, Justin. | 2. I roasted up some veggies to take camping. | 3. Heading out for said camping trip. | 4. A sunny, breezy Memorial Day.
1. I recently got my hair cut. Had Mom put more layers in it. | 2. Reuben bought me supper at one of my favorite places. | 3. My father-in-law built me this awesome “kitchen” garden. | 4. Postcard from France from a friend.
1. Browned butter cinnamon roll + fried egg. | 2. Ellie had to have a pink drink at the coffee shop. | 3. The crabapple trees were beautiful in bloom. | 4. I tried making an Arnold Palmer. It was delicious and refreshing.
1. Afternoon cuppa + malted milk cookies. | 2. Cornbread cooked in a skillet. | 3. I made myself a mini 7-layer dip for lunch. | 4. Possible new addiction: frozen espresso + cream + milk + maple syrup + vanilla extract.
1. Back when Reuben had a “beard.” Waaaah! He still looks awesome without it, but there’s a bit of nostalgia associated with it. :) | 2. Homemade butter (from Jersey cows) is awesome. | 3. A yummy treat: oranges drizzled with olive oil & sprinkled with black pepper. | 4. I was sick for nearly two weeks. No fun.

So, I’ve been a very good girl with the photo-a-day challenges. I’ve only missed one day! Which means I’ve taken a photo practically every day since February. Yay!
In June, I might join in this fun-sounding photo challenge.
Are any of you participating in a photo-a-day challenge or a Project 366/52?
Have an awesome day!

    I love all your photos! I am doing Fat Mum Slim’s photo-a-day challenge, too, for May and will be doing June as well. I post my photos on instagram, though.

    Rebecca: Thank you so much! I post on Instagram as well (my username is ericaleaphotos). What’s your username for Instagram?

    It amazes me how you and others can achieve such nice photos with a PHONE! I played with my dad’s camera phone last weekend and it just didn’t cut it. Maybe I’m too used to the control of my DSLR or something, or maybe it’s an app?? Anyway, love the photos – especially the 4th set.

    Kathryn: Aw…thanks! :) I use a few apps – Instagram (free), Pic Stitch (also free) and VSCO cam (99 cents, but totally worth every penny). Being able to adjust the color balance really helps phone photos to look better, IMO. Especially if you’re stuck using an iPod most of the time. :)

    aaawww…you and your husband make such a cute couple!
    Your photography is gorgeous! I was wondering…how old were you when you started to really get into photography?

    Thank you! Back in late 2006, my dad bought our first DSLR. I soon became very interested in photography. I started my first blog in 2008, and I was addicted. So I was about 17 when I first really started to get interested in photography. :)
