Well, I've done it again-gone an entire month without a post.  It is not for lack of things to post about. In fact, it is just the opposite.  There has been so much going on that I haven't been able to keep up. As we enter the new year, I want to try to slow down a bit in some areas of my life and focus on things I enjoy the most (like posting on this blog).

As in years before, I would like to continue taking a photo a day---it has been a great way to document my year and to take notice of the little things in my life.  This year, however, I may not post an original Instagram challenge each and every month.  Instead, I may join a few other challenges that are already developed online, such as at The Idea Room or Katrina Kennedy's CY365. I'll keep you informed about what I'm choosing to do so that you can join me as well, but for now, here is a new Instagram challenge for the month of January 2016.

If you haven't already done so, come on over to Instagram and follow me by clicking on the icon to the right or here.  You can participate as often or as little as you like, and feel free to interpret each prompt however you'd like.  Just take a photo a day and post it on Instagram, tagged with the designated hashtag.  From time to time, be sure to click on the hashtag to see what others have posted and follow a new friend, if you like.  For these challenges, I only use my iPhone camera, so the focus is generally on the theme and not technique, but you can use whatever works for you.

Have fun with it and leave me a comment below if you are new to the challenge or have any questions.  (hint: Open this page on your mobile device and click/save the image to your photos so that you always have it handy).
