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!

  4. What a fun challenge! I doubt I’ll remember to take a pic each day but maybe I’ll manage a few off the list, LOL!

  5. Aww, Ashley! That photo is adorable. I am a little (ok, a lot) behind on my holiday decorating. What a fun photo challenge. I doubt I’ll remember that photo a day but hopefully I can get a few in!

    • Yea, feel free to participate as little or as much as you want. This is meant to be fun and not another thing you have to check off your to-do list. 🙂
