The theme of this challenge just screamed something different so I decided to find free photos online that I can look at and think about Possibilities or Opportunities and how they are truly never ending. I also got inspired to do a little “Play” with the word. I forget what the official name of it is so if you know, feel free to remind me! 🙂

{October 10, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:COMFORT

Comfort means a variety of things- to soothe, console or reassure;bring cheer to; to make physically comfortable; to aid, support or encourage. Those are just a few of the definitions. I tried to find some pictures that represent things that bring me comfort in some of these ways.

Books are a huge source of comfort for me

My husband is great at comforting me!

Me with my nieces Rebekah, Lydia and Hannah

Being around family and friends that I love is another source of comfort for me.

Me with my bridesmaids-My source for comfort on my wedding day

This quote, found on a plaque at my sister's house, brings me comfort's all about comfort...and Texas doesn't get TOO cold 🙂

A drawing my talented niece Rebekah did...This is to represent how Music Comforts me

A Snuggle Teddy Bear---Teddy Bears are adorable and VERY comforting to snuggle with!

{October 2, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:SUNSET

Yes, this was a picture that came from my computer and not my own, but it’s a pretty Sunset, isn’t it? 🙂

The rest of the pictures are my very own, though!

Picture my husband had in the newspaper last October

Picture of a Sunset back in July

And as an added bonus; Because this theme reminded me of a beautiful song I actually sang once when I was in A.C. Singers, here is the chorus of “Sunrise, Sunset” from Fiddler on the Roof.

Sunrise, sunset (x2),
Swiftly flow the days.

Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossoming even as we gaze.

Sunrise, sunset (x2),
Swiftly fly the years,
One season following another,
Laiden with happiness and tears.

{September 25, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:FALL

This  year in Texas will look more like Summer should look due to the lack of rain and all the fires, therefore I’m posting pictures taken last year during the Fall season.

{September 18, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:FACES

I have to say that is my favorite theme so far! I’m not a big photo taker, but when I do take them, I tend to mostly take photos of people. Especially my family. There’s just something so special about capturing moments in time with them. I really love the faces of babies and little children. The sweet smiles on their faces, the light in their eyes when they are so full of joy, even the way their front teeth may be missing. It’s all so beautiful and wonderful to me.

Here I have added a little slideshow with some great faces, a few pictures were taken by other family members, but for the most part, they were taken by me.

Please enjoy my slideshow of wonderful faces! 🙂

(The pictures from my wedding were taken by my husband’s step mom)

{September 16, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:Textured

This theme was actually given last Friday and a new one was given today, so I am a bit late. I didn’t want to miss a theme since I have been good so far about not missing any, so here it is! 🙂

{September 5, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:PATH

Picture taken by my best friend Tara on 7/19/09

The great thing about paths is that life is full of them! 🙂

{August 30, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:UP

Up….this could be the sky or the ceiling, a way of feeling, if you’re upside down, UP could be the floor, Up could be a destination or your present location. You might be heading up of your own accord or against your wishes. UP as a photo theme has unlimited options….just as UP could have unlimited meanings.

For some reason, after I got the Disney movie “Up” out of my thoughts, I immediately switched to the saying of “Word Up”. I remember hearing this saying various times as a child AND as a teen. Urban Dictionary has a lot of snazzy definitions for it…..Such as, “Yeah, that’s right”, acknowledgment of approval and “I comprehend what you are saying and verify that your statement is true, my good brother.” <—That last one seems too sophisticated to have come from anyone I remember overusing the saying, “Word Up”, but hey…whatever you say, Urban Dictionary.

In order of this theme and the saying “Word Up”, I am putting a picture of me as a child that I believe fully epitomizes the meaning of cool and feeling “Up”.

“Word Up, dude!” 😉

Was I a cool kid or what?

{August 25, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:FLOWERS

Apparently, I don’t take pictures of flowers very often…shame on me, right?!

I do have loads of pics of me wearing floral clothes, though….so I guess that will have to do for now!

Cartoon mode....

My WWW Wednesday for this week has been canceled. I haven’t got any further in reading any books since last week so I thought it would be useless to do one this week. Maybe I will have more of a chance to do some reading THIS week.
