I always love to create these mosaics from Flickr. I find them so inspiring. I haven't made one in a while, so I thought I would post here. All of the links for the images are posted above.
I also failed to mention that Kristi and I are taking a little hiatus from the weekly photography prompts and diptychs. We are both a bit overwhelmed with the holidays right now. We hope to be back in early December.
I didn't get a chance to create the photo I had in mind, so I had to dig through my archives for a photo that was taken of me this summer. It shows me with an old Richoflex camera. It is a good indication of my thankfulness right now. I feel that I am in a really good place in my life. I have a wonderfully loving husband, three healthy (and rambunctious) boys and I am doing something that I absolutely LOVE to do...take photos! Seriously, I am blessed beyond measure!
And, I LOVE Kristi's image. Her sweet little girl made a huge mess on the floor and though as moms it can be frustrating at times that our work never ends, but look at that face...could you stay mad at that? I think not. Kristi expressed to me that it is the messiness of life right now that she is grateful for. This time when her children are young is fleeting and although at times, chaotic, it is perfectly wonderful!

What do you give thanks for? Be sure to share a link in the comments!
I am hoping to make this a weekly installment...Five on Friday...a chance for me to jot down things that happened, things I am grateful for, things that are on my heart. I scanned in a vintage book in hopes of jotting my thoughts down on the pages, but I am not sure if you will be able to read it. You can always click on the image though and it will appear larger in a separate screen.
ETA: It appears quite small even when you click on it. I will make it larger in the future. I just like the idea of writing about my life in an old vintage book. ;)
I am in awe of all the veterans and the active military who risk (ed) their lives on a daily basis so that I can enjoy the freedoms that I too often take for granted. I am humbled by your patriotism and your selflessness. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
When I chose the word, together, I was thinking of things that go together, i.e. peanut butter and chocolate; brown paper packages and string; mittens; paper and pencils; and cookies and milk. I giggled out loud when I saw that Kristi had photographed just that...Oreos and milk. What could be better? Her image is just gorgeous! It reminds me of after-school snacks in the comforts of home.
For my image, I chose an outtake from our Christmas card shoot (or should I say, an attempt at a Christmas card shoot.) ;)
It perfectly demonstrates togetherness in our family. The baby (I know he technically isn't a baby any more, but I'm in denial...what can I say?) is always last trying his darndest to keep up and usually one of the big brothers is looking back to see if he is okay and indeed catching up!

What does together mean to you? Please share. We can't wait to see your interpretations.
