It has been awhile since I’ve participated in a Weekly Photo Challenge and I’ve missed it! The theme this week is “From Above.”
Photographically, I am obsessed with reflections. I often find myself shooting the reflection of what I see in a mud puddle or, in the case above, a pond. This particular shot was taken with my iPhone’s Hipstamatic app at Wildwood, my favorite park. I have a whole Flickr set of photos if you want to see more of this beautiful place.
This week we are supposed to share a photo that represents what love means to us. This is perfect for today! I just got an email from my husband that made me laugh so hard and also reminded me of why I love him so much. There are so many things about him that I love but one thing that I really love is that he knows how to make me laugh, probably more so than anyone else.
He helped me out on a photography project today. I took some photos for a website for that leadership project I am working on (more about that soon). The composition was pretty good but there were things in the photo that made it less than perfect. The Mr is a master at Photoshop (I suck at it and hate it) so he fixed it all up for me. When he sent me the file he also sent me a little joke along with it. If you are familiar with the “Hey Girl” meme, you might get a laugh out of it too.
When I saw this week’s photo challenge on the Daily Post, this image instantly popped into my head. It was taken on Christmas Eve 2006. I knitted that scarf for my mom and this is the moment she opened her present. I LOVE this picture. The looks on my mom’s and step-dad’s faces, this is the reason why knitters knit for other people. This is the best look in the world. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
WordPress Daily Post asks: Tell us about a guilty pleasure that you hate to love.
Oh dear. I can’t believe I am going to post this.
But my guilty pleasure is the show Ghost Adventures.
I KNOW! Embarrassing.
I usually only watch it while drinking.
The thing is, I really like scary things. I am a big fan of horror films and stories. So that is what is at the root of this guilty pleasure. My love of the horror genre.
The other things is that I LOVE naive camp. It find it entertaining and hilarious and I love to laugh.
Ghost Adventures is a beautiful blending of two of my favorite things. So there. That’s why I like it.

For me the winter season is all about curling up in front of a fire with my knitting and drinking hot cocoa. Nevermind the fact that this photo represents the only time I have ever used my fireplace.
