If you haven’t played along before, don’t worry, you can jump in now!  It’s okay if you miss a day…or two…or 10…it doesn’t matter.  This is just a fun way to slow down and focus on the beauty in life.  Every day moments in life are beautiful!

December Photo a Day 2012 – Days 6-13

I’ve been a little behind on posting my photo a day photos but I’m here to catch up!  I’ve been posting them on Twitter and Instagram but just not my blog.  Without further ado…

Toys

Day 6 – Toys This is a picture of my husband breaking down and removing the batteries from an old toy so that we could make room for new Christmas toys.

 

 

Christmas Lights

Day 7 – Bright This is a strand of VERY bright LED lights.  I’m not a fan.

 

 

The Money Saving Mom's Budget

Day 8 – Good Book This is a picture of one of the latest drafts of Crystal Paine’s book, The Money Saving Mom’s Budget, that she sent me before it was published.  It’s a great book and I would recommend it to anyone looking for practical ways to save money!

 

 

A Beautiful Sight

Day 9 – A Beautiful Sight This is my little sweetheart and I think she’s beautiful!

 

 

Christmas Tree

Day 10 – Christmas Tree This is the sad picture of my Christmas tree with LED lights in the middle of it.  One of our strands of lights bit the dust this year and apparently very few people still sell regular old glass light bulbs.  These plastic bulbs are dull looking up close while being blindingly bright and many are sharp to the touch.  I am very disappointed.  Oh, and to make things worse, our very bottom strand of lights just died tonight too so now we’ll have to buy more LED lights unless we buy the old fashioned lights online and those won’t arrive until after Christmas.  I can’t decide what to do.  Remove all the lights and put them back on more sparingly, buy a large LED strand, buy old lights online and pay an outrageous amount for quick shipping, or buy several 2 feet strands of the old lights for $5 a box at the only place we’ve found them at in town.  Decisions, decisions!

 

Day 11 – Something Yummy

This is amazing!  It tastes so much better than my poor pictures shows.  This is a Moravian Sugar Cake which I was recently introduced to.  It’s ridiculously good!  If I find a recipes for it I’ll be sure to share it with you.

 

 

Julep Nail Polish

Day 12 – Sparkle

This sparkly bundle of nail polish is from Julep.  I’ve enjoyed just about every bottle I’ve got from them but their glitter is out of this world.  It brings out the child in me for sure!!! They have full coverage glitter, medium coverage and get this, glitter with different size sparkles!  Yea, I’m hooked.

 

Someone I love

Day 13 – Someone I Love 

Of course I was going to take a picture of my family!  It was between my daughter and my husband and my daughter was the only one home at the moment.  If you’re reading this, I love you too, Michael!!

 

In case you haven’t heard what all this Photo a Day talk is about, you can go here to December Photo a Day for all the information.  The basic gist is that everyday throughout the month of December we’re given a specific theme to take a picture of.  I’ll be taking a picture with Instagram and I’ll share my picture here on my blog.  I also have a linky attached to the main post so you can link up your photo of the day that you’ve published on your blog.  Plus, if you want to participate but don’t have a blog you can use the hashtag #EmbracingDecember to share on Twitter or Instagram!  I hope you’ll join us!

December Photo a Day 2012 – Day 4 & 5

I thought I might get behind on this December Photo a Day Challenge a day or two throughout the month but I had no idea it would be this soon.  I have a good reason though!!  I have contracted a nasty little illness.  My doctor said that it’s a sinus and bronchial infection although I told my husband it feels more like the plague.  I haven’t been sick for over two years and then I get hit with a bad cold in October and now again in December.  I am very thankful to have a dear husband to take care of me, insurance and money to pay for medicine, and a sweet baby girl who always makes me smile.  Now, on to my photos for day 4 & 5.  If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you may have already seen these because I did take them on the correct day but they didn’t make it to my blog then.

 

Joyous

Day 4: Joyous

 Doesn’t that picture truly represent the word joyous?  My little girl is joyful 98% of the time.  She is such a blessing to me!

Today's Temperature

Day 5: Today’s Temperature

This weather around here has been absolutely crazy lately.  Yesterday was overcast and 69.5 at the time I took this picture but I’m pretty sure it reached the 70’s a day or two before.  60 & 70 degree days in DECEMBER!  That’s wild!

 

In case you haven’t heard what all this Photo a Day talk is about, you can go here to December Photo a Day for all the information.  The basic gist is that everyday throughout the month of December we’re given a specific theme to take a picture of.  I’ll be taking a picture with Instagram and I’ll share my picture here on my blog.  I also have a linky attached to the main post so you can link up your photo of the day that you’ve published on your blog.  Plus, if you want to participate but don’t have a blog you can use the hashtag #EmbracingDecember to share on Twitter or Instagram!  I hope you’ll join us!

December Photo a Day 2012 – Day 3

 

Georgia Bulldogs Hat

 

For today’s Photo a Day Challenge I chose a picture of my husband’s beloved Georgia hat.  The challenge today was for something red.  Our house is still mourning over the loss the SEC Championship title and the opportunity to play Notre Dame in the national championship.

 

For those who haven’t heard the tragic news, the Bulldogs ran out of time in Saturday’s game before they could get in another play.  They clock ran out and they lost.  By a mere 5 yards.  It was heartbreaking!  They went from being a #3 team playing the #2 team and because they lost, that close game, it bumped them down to the #7 team.  I hope many of you are supporting a much merrier red for  your photo a day picture!

 

In case you haven’t heard about our December Photo a Day Challenge and you wonder what on earth it is I’m talking about, let me tell you a little more.

 

Every day throughout the month of December I’ll be taking a picture with Instagram {feel free to follow me there too!} and I’ll share my picture here on my blog.  I’ll have a linky attached to the Photo a Day Challenge page so that you can link up your photo of the day that you’ve published on your blog.  Plus, if you want to participate but don’t have a blog you can use the hashtag #EmbracingDecember to share on Twitter or Instagram!  I’m loving the awesome pictures that everyone is coming up with.  If you haven’t yet, I hope you’ll join us!  It’s a lot of fun!

Frosty

 

This is my second picture for our December Photo a Day Challenge 2012!

 

Today’s topic: Favorite Holiday Movie

 

One of our favorite Christmas movies is Frosty the Snowman.  I thought the frosted snowman doughnut captured it perfectly. 🙂

 

Every day throughout the month of December I’ll be taking a picture with Instagram {feel free to follow me there too!} and I’ll share my picture here on my blog.  I’ll have a linky attached to each day’s post so that you can link up your photo of the day that you’ve published on your blog.

December Photo a Day Challenge 2012

 

December Photo of the Day Challenge 2012

 

I know that December can be a busy, busy month but it can also be one of the best months of the year!  Every year I try my hardest to  slow down and enjoy December but before I know it it’s the new year.  This year, I thought it would be fun to host a December Photo of the Day Challenge.  Every day throughout the month of December I will take a picture with Instagram {feel free to follow me there too!} and I’ll share my picture here on my blog.  I was going to have a linky attached to each day’s post but I that became confusing so I’ve added a linky to this post so that you can link up your photo of the day that you’ve published on your blog.  My goal is for this to be a reminder to myself, and everyone, to slow down and enjoy each day we’re given.  Sure, the lights will inevitably get tangled but what a beautiful picture it would make! : )

 

If you feel up to sharing your photos with me but don’t have a blog, feel free to use the hashtag #EmbracingDecember on Twitter or Instagram!  I’d love to see what creative pictures you come up with!

 

Doesn’t that sound like fun?  We can get a peak into everyone’s life, support each other’s blogs, and most importantly take time to enjoy our family and remember the real reason for the Christmas season.  I hope you’ll join me!!  Come and link up below!
