Time to Give Thanks

He thought it was funny that the leaf was a perfect heart & wanted a picture. He was not excited to take more than one photo. But I'm grateful for just one.


It's that time of year. Want to join in on the gratitude?

Starting November 1, photograph something each day you're thankful for. It can be anything or anyone. You can write paragraphs about it or just let your photo do the talking.


Post to the group, to your blog, to your Facebook page.

Just be thankful about something each day of November!


psst... it feels good too.

    yes, I'm in! I'll need some motivation to get through what is likely to be a grey month. Only 2 left in my 365! WOot! That's something to be grateful for!
