photo challenge: people, giveaway winner, and new blog

Ready for another photo challenge? The theme for this time is people. While photographs of vegetation and other inanimate objects are beautiful, there's something about a wonderful picture of a person that can't be beat.


I know I've shared this photo at least two times before, but it's definitely one of my favorite shots. I love the lighting and Lilly's soulful expression.

Want to join? Just write a post containing a favorite photo that you've taken, then come back here and link up! Feel free to grab the above button as well - just make sure you have some sort of link to me so others can participate as well :) One entry per person please...if you have several photos in your post, please specify which one you are entering. And don't forget to visit at least three other entries!
The challenge ends one week from today, Sunday, January 23rd, at 9:59pm.

Have fun! I can't wait to see all your beautiful images :)

The winner of my giveaway a few weeks ago never responded, so I got to pick a new winner!

The winner of the giveaway is...

Laney! Congratulations Laney! Send me an email and we'll get your necklace to you as soon as possible :)

And now about my new blog. I've decided that I'm going to start project 365 again. Last year, I started, but I  chickened out and didn't finish. But this year, I'm determined to finish. I know I can do this. I'd love if you'd check out embrace (named after my One Word for 2011)!

Have a wonderful day!
