August Break 2011


I just joined the amazing Susannah Conway's August Break Challenge for the second year in a row, you can head right over here to check it out and jump right in too if it sounds like fun to you. Sometimes I start to put pressure on myself about blogging, you know those ideas about how often you should post, and sometimes I even find myself getting upset with myself if I don't feel like I am showing up here often enough...or with enough energy! Oh those self imposed rules.
So that is why I love the "August Break" so much...no rules. August is usually a time of loosening up and traveling for us, and with the August Break last summer it was so simple to just pop on and post pictures of our adventures. Come visit some of my August Break posts from last summer here.

Susannah describes the August Break idea this way:

Okay, here’s the plan for the August Break: you simply share one photo (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, film or digital – with or without words – anything goes! – for the whole of August. No pressure – just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging.

There are NO RULES, people! Just sunshine (hopefully) and a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at.

Won't you join me?
