30 Day Photo Challenge: GRATITUDE

It's done! The 30 Day Photo Challenge that I was participating in is finally over...not that I wanted it to be. This little challenge lasted for the entire month of November. If you remember, I posted about it at the beginning of the month of November. Basically how it works is this: for each day, you post a picture of something you are grateful for, with each day given a specific topic. For example, day one's topic is "Favorite Food" so I took a picture of my collection of nut butters. And the days continued on until the end of the month, with me posting each day on my Flickr. Well I can't hold off any longer and I just HAD to post all my challenge pictures. Enjoy!

Day 1: Favorite Food
Nut Butters. I LOVE them all.

Day 2: Smile
My adorable little brother, Isaac. Just look at that face!

Day 3: Happiness
I found this tike bike as I was bicycling around my neighborhood.

Day 4: Leaves
This is out on my front lawn.

Day 5: Morning Sky
I took this picture when I went and hiked Mount Timpanogos. Me and some friends starting hiking when it was dark, around 6 AM. It was gorgeous.

Day 6: Books
Some of my books in my room.

Day 7: Something Funny
This summer at my family reunion. I was walking down to the fire pit and I felt something warm running down my leg. I immediately thought, Who is spitting soda pop at me? I looked down and saw my nephew, Tallin, peeing on me. Yes, PEEING on ME! I started screaming, "This kid is peeing on me!!" All my family members looked over and started cracking up. I was laughing so hard. Don't worry, I washed off myself in the shower. And afterward, I just had to get a picture with the culprit.

Day 8: Favorite Color
I don't have a favorite color because I like all colors. I am in love with my vintage flower sunglasses.

Day 9: Inspiring Person
My twin brother Seth. He is so kind, generous, giving, caring, talented, and genuine. 
I want to be more like him.

Day 10: Nature
Why are dandelions so hated? I know they are a weed, but I find them incredibly beautiful.
(I took this outside of my summer house)

Day 11: Something Old
Old ripped couch on my porch. Antique and charming. Vintage is the new black.

Day 12: Hands
Me and my boyfriend made a baby...heart :) hahaa...

Day 13: Written Words
Someone left me and my roommates a cute little note on our chalkboard wall. It's a bit illiterate and they forgot how to spell, but we love it nonetheless.

Day 14: Movement
The boyf Devin jumping off the porch. He is such a trooper. I love this picture. Nostalgia at its finest.

Day 15: Technology
My ipod and my little brother's Beats headphones.

Day 16: Animals
Okay, so I don't own any pets and this is the closet thing I could think of. My bestie Katie and I dressed up as jungle cats for Halloween. Rawr.

Day 17: Memories
Oh the good ol' days... These two jokesters were my BFFs from high school. We were making raspberry jam. "Why so serious?!"

Day 18: Something New
My first official wedding cake. My friend Lark asked me if I would make hers and of course I said YES!
Now I am hooked. All I want to do is make wedding cakes.
Check out my post for this wedding cake here.

Day 19: Best Friend
Katie (on right). She is my bestie and lover (ha).
We complete one another :)

Day 20: Seasonal
November in Wyoming. Gorgeous, isn't it? Gotta love my home-state.

Day 21: Where You Sleep
My bed. So comfy. I fall asleep so fast on this thing. I gotta brag a bit about the polka dot quilt I made in the left corner. It keeps me warm :)

Day 22: Clothing
A pretty normal outfit for me to wear. I felt SO AWKWARD posing for this picture.

Day 23: In Your Closet
As you can see, I have a lot of sweaters and shoes. My two weaknesses when it comes to shopping. You can never have too many...

Day 24: Gratitude
My boyfriend Devin. I am so grateful for him. Honestly, he is the most caring person I know. He goes out of his way to do anything for me. Devin is kind, loving, compassionate, endearing, giving, light-hearted, happy, hilarious, outgoing, affectionate (a definite lover), ambitious, calm, friendly, sociable, gentle, spunky, spiritual, trustworthy, understanding, dependable, witty, and just simply amazing. This guy is so completely wonderful to me, I don't deserve him. (Just look at the picture--he was helping me peel apples to make pie when he could have been watching TV with the guys!)

Day 25: Artwork
I sketched this ballerina after watching the Black Swan. Hate the movie. Love ballerinas. Every time I look at this it reminds me of my friend Kailee over at An Outfit a Day (her awesome fashion blog).

Day 26: Transportation
My Electra Amsterdam Sport. I can't live without this thing. It takes me everywhere.

Day 27: Daily Routine
I must have hot herbal tea EVERY DAY. This stuff calms and renews me.

Day 28: Nighttime
I took this picture at a friend's soccer game. Isn't nature just amazing?

Day 29: Light
Grove of trees in the forest. Mount Timpanogos.

Day 30: Self-Portrait
Once again, a little bit weird for me to take, but if the shoe fits where it, eh?

Thanks for following me on my journey of gratitude through pictures!
This challenge gave me the perspective of what I really am thankful for in life.
