Photo a Day Challenge {december}

Screen Shot 2012-11-30 at 1.01.36 PM

We had such a great time with the October photo challenge that I thought we’d try it again for the month of December!

If you’re on Instagram or Facebook, you saw lots of awesome pics.  I was so amazed by everyone’s creativity and am still planning on posting my favorites…at some point.  :/

My favorite part of these challenges is that it forces you to take a ‘time-out’.  To just stop.  Even if only for a moment, to stop and take in the beauty around us.  To appreciate some small gift in our lives each day of the month. <3

So here’s how this is going to go down. 

  • The only “rule” is that the photos must be original.
  • You must use the tags for this to work.  Otherwise, your photos will just float in cyberspace. 
  • Each number on the list below is the same as the date.  5 is December 5th, 13 is December 13th.  If you are late with posting your pics, that’s okay.  We all are sometimes.

If you’re on Instagram, I’m @ThePrude.  Tag me in your photos and use the #orthodoxmomphotoaday hashtag.  If you’re on Facebook, upload them to your profile page and tag me in them or upload them directly to my blog’s facebook page.

Last time, I created a list of my own but this time I am going to use this one from A Content Housewife because most of the list I started to create really resembled hers anyway and hers is way prettier.  :)

So, let me know if you’ll be playing along this time!  I can’t wait to see all of your awesome holiday photos!  Have fun and appreciate every moment!  They are all blessings…

Orthodox Mom Photo Challenge {september}

orthodox mom photo challenge

I’ve recently become more active on Instagram and when I posted my first few Orthodox photos, I received a lot of comments saying how nice it was to see “Orthodoxy on Instagram”.   And I had to agree.  I love seeing photos of different quotes people post, or churches they’ve visited; I just think it’s beautiful.

I’ve also noticed the various photo of the day lists circulating the social networks lately, so I couldn’t help but think how neat it would be to do an Orthodox photo challenge. Why not flood the internet with creative photos with an Orthodox flair?  I’m really excited about this!  Yes, I’m aware that I totally geek out sometimes but I can’t help it.

So here’s how this is going to go down. 

  • The only “rule” is that the photos must be original.
  • You must use the tags for this to work.  Otherwise, your photos will just float in cyberspace.

If you’re on Instagram or Twitter, I’m @ThePrude.  Tag me in your photos and use the #orthodoxmom hashtag.  If you’re on Facebook, upload them to your profile page and tag me in them. 

All month long, I’ll showcase select photos.   The list is posted below.  Of course, not every photo will be be Orthodox per se, but the point is to incorporate photos of Orthodoxy in our everyday lives.

Ready, set, click!
