Welcome, October!

I cannot believe it's October. It's strange, but it's almost as though Central Florida knew today needed to start feeling more like fall. As luck would have it- it is a crisp 75 degrees out. That may sound crazy to some of you but around here it's grounds for windows open! It is absolutely delicious! All I want is to sit out on my balcony and take it all in... I guess singing and dancing for little ones aint so bad either. This is the only time of year I'm sad I work at an indoor stage. Oh Florida Fall- how you make me smile!

I decided, starting today I'm putting myself on a little bit of a picture challenge. I've been awful at keeping up with pictures in the past but lately I have improved immensely. Thanks to Pinterest, I found my way over to an adorable blog called Pink Suede Shoe. In August of this past year, she took a picture every day and then used Big Huge Labs to make a mosaic of her month. It was so adorable and I loved it so much that I decided to do the same for October! Actually- I would love to do it every day for the rest of this month and the last couple of  months this year as a practice round to do a picture every day for 2012. Ambitious as all crap which is why I'm starting out with just October. I figured- I always have my phone with me. How hard could it possibly be to just take 1 photograph a day... we'll see how it goes!

Here's the first one... The start of my Instagram month- October 1st.

I have a feeling October is going to be lovely... Anyone else want to try to document there month in a picture a day through instagram? Let me know! I'd love to follow you and see how your month looks!

This is such a cool idea! I'm kind of camera challenged at the moment- otherwise I would be all over this!

Thanks for your comment yesterday! I'm excited to have found your blog : )

I love it! I was doing this earlier this year to document my time as a CP in Orlando, plus all the other traveling I did. Now that I've started a new blog, I'll have to join you!

I cannot believe that it's the 1st week of October. I love fall, but we didn't get much of a summer here in the Pacific Northwest, so your 75 degrees makes me frown. :)

I really want to get into Pinterest. As a photographer, it seems like the best site for me, but I'm just plum out of time since I write 2 blogs - I think I'm crazy.

I really love your blog and would love to connect and interview you about your design choice - it's gorgeous. Would you email me at kimberly@kimberlygauthier.com if you're interested? :)

Visiting from the Tea Party!

Pretty neat idea! I always forget my phone has a camera when I think, "Oh I wish I had a camera, what a great shot!" Then I kick myself later, "duh, I have the phone and missed that great shot!" Love this idea - visiting via LBS Tea Party.

I don't have instagram but since I take pictures all the time, I just may join. Here in So. Cal. our October is similar. I was actually really hot today at work. I'm one of those weirdos what wishes it would rain. :-/
