In the Picture

Linking up with Christy at Urban Muser for November's In the Picture.  The month's (optional) theme was I am grateful.

I am grateful for my daughter and her joy, silliness and kisses.

I am grateful for home where this was taken.  All my books are in the background and that spot has the best light in the house.  I am also grateful for funky text and texture apps on my phone. ;)

I am not usually much of a winter person but I read this great quote today

Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.  Emerson

and it made think how grateful I am for this change of pace as the seasons change.  

I'm also grateful to Christy for keeping me going with this self portraiture journey this year.  I know it's been a lot of work for her but honestly the door was firmly closed to self portraits and I wouldn't have started or continued without her and the project.  And here I am now with one more month to go.   Thank you, Christy. 

In The Picture


  1. I like the new self-portrait at the top with a little corner of your daughters face as she is about to give you a kiss! So many lovely things to be grateful for... even winter as we learn the art of patience!

  2. these are such great shots! and i love that emerson quote too. glad you found the project inspiring--that makes me happy :) thanks for linking up this month. hope to see you in december.

  3. Gratitude always brings out the best in us, doesn't it? I love your photos and the "in the picture" views...I'm grateful for all that you share...especially the quote -- it fits with winter and I think I shall adopt it as well! xo

  4. Good for you for staying on a self-portraiture journey. I took a class earlier this year and it really opened my heart to let in some self-compassion. (And now I'm counting calories because I don't like what I see!) I love your list of reasons to be grateful. xoxo

  5. Yay, you've almost done the year- well done. Nice set of selfies & great reasons to be grateful.

  6. Watching you take on this challenge and succeed so well has been inspiring. And here you are with only another month to go! You do have much to be grateful for.
