52 Week Photo Challenge

NINE HUNDRED AND FORTY SATURDAYS!!! That is the number of Saturdays that we have with our children from the time that they are born to the day they turn 18!!! That's all we get before they have their 18th birthday and they are officially adults...and 260 of those are taken up before they even enter school at 5 years old!!! I don't know about you, but that just hits me in the gut.

This last week I feel like I woke up one morning and looked at my son and thought, "How are your 14 already?" Believe me when I say, the days are long but the years are short. This is why I felt that it was fitting for me to do a 52 week photo challenge, and I hope that you will join me. Each week, be intentional with your photos, not just snapping random pictures on your phone. I wanted to create a challenge to would nurture those precious and sweet moment with our children. The memories fade, but pictures never do. This challenge will encourage us to think outside the box and capture those smiles as they do something they love.

So here it goes...

Are you up for the challenge?

Each Week I will post the photo challenge and I hope you will play by posting your photo of the week under my photo challenge. If you haven't followed me on facebook, here's your chance. Go like my page and this is where you will be able to participate in my weekly photo challenge >>>> Click Here
