Photo blogging #challenge April 2017 #color #photoblog #fun

The theme for April’s photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com/ was COLOR. It has been a LONNNG while since I participated in the photo challenge. I wanted to get back into doing this because it is my one time a month to share a visual insight in my world.

Without further ado, here are my pictures on the theme.

Photo 1
We went to the North Georgia mountains fir our anniversary. We stayed in a cabin at the Sylvan Valley Lodge. Outside the back was dense forest. All the shades of green looked so peaceful.

I went to a painting class and painted this picture. The local chamber of commerce hosted the event to promote the upcoming Festival of Flowers in June. I think my picture is so colorful and pretty. I was surprised that it turned out as well as it did.

I am a Young Living independent distributor. I have bottles of essential oils everywhere. I took this picture because I was staging a picture for Instagram. I love the different colors of the bottle labels.  Of the ones pictured, I think Thieves is my most used lately to boost my immune system because there are too many sick people at work.

I was a judge for a local chef competition. Of course, I was judging the Dessert entries because I love sweets. This lovely, colorful dessert is a lemon basil cake with strawberry cream topped with candied pecans and lemon whipped cream. I love all that is going on with this dish!!!! It was my fave.

I ordered sweet potato tempura sushi the other day. I like how the orange of the sweet potato pops in this. It was tasty too.

These were just a few of the pictures that show the colorful areas of my life.

Photo Blogging #Challenge (October 2016): #Water #photoblog #fun


October’s theme for the photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com/?p=11777 was Water. I knew this would be an easy theme for me because I was going on vacation to Costa Rica (Guanacaste region). In the middle of the rainforest and on the beach, I had plenty of chances for pictures with water.

Picture 1
Everyday it was a little cloudy and it rained. We were in the rainy season. We did not mind though and still went to the beach. It was hot and the slightly overcast sky meant the sun was not a brutal.

Near the resort, we saw locals fishing. He looked so relaxed in the water, that I wanted to capture that moment.

We took an excursion to one of the many waterfalls in the Gaunacaste region. Hubs is in this picture to give you some scale as to how large the waterfall was. I liked this one because of the contrast with the water, greenery, and black rock.

We went to a volcano crater and walked inside of it. The volcano was dormant at the time, but still very hot. The spring water that escaped from the earth was bubbling hot. It was mesmerizing. I knew it was boiling hot but at the same time, I wanted to touch it. I resisted and prevented getting 3rd burns.

On the last day, I had this cucumber, pineapple, spinach juice. In Spanish, these drinks are called “Aguas” which literally means “water”. I included it because by the last day, I was drinking healthy veggie and fruit waters to detox from all the alcohol I had been drinking during our vacation 😀

I love looking at the lush greenery made possible by the abundance of water in the form of rainfall.
