allow me to revel in the day. september first. 72 degrees/73% humidity. sun. calm. a positive outlook (on my part). the *symbolic* end to what has been an insanely chaotic summer in the hotel business.
it also happens to be pumpkin spice candle day in MY world!! unfortunately, i checked my stash this morning, and i don't have pumpkin spice on hand. but i have mulled cider!! and that will do. that will do very nicely.
it also happens to be a tuesday, and that has me thinking about self-portraits. and i've got a challenge for you.
how i spent my summer vacation
for the most part... kiddos are back at school and our lives are settling into their fall cycles. for many, that means soccer practice or piano lessons, scout troops or Seminary (see, i'm learning!), marathons or crop weekends. a little more structure, a little less daylight.
before you get caught up in the fall frenzy (school carnivals, anyone?) take some time to tell us how you spent your summer vacation. the challenge is this: you have one photo. one snapshot to tell your story. it might be a photo you've already taken, i photo you've already posted even. or maybe you will spend some time thinking about how to create "the perfect shot" that will showcase several months worth of you-ness.
you may be out of practice, you may be a first time spt-er. there's no pressure here. you've got time to plan. this challenge is due tuesday, september 8th, one week from today.
