8 Favorite Photos Of The Month

I love taking pictures, I think it’s so much fun to capture the moment while you’re in it. I also love the fact pictures hold memories and are made of these unforgettable times. I mean, when do you take a picture of something you want to forget about?

I’m sharing 8 of my favorite photos from the month, They consists of cuteness, inspiration, self care, and just plan willpower.

This is my new baby, Yamper. You’ve seen me speak about him (a lot) on the blog and even though I don’t pick him up until May 1st he’s already melted my heart. I have a chronic illness (Bipolar 1 & Anxiety suck!) that causes good days and severely bad days, so I thought about making him a service dog but my thoughts for right now are to bond with him very closely. He’s going to be my roll dog – literally.

A few weekends ago my boyfriend and I decided to go camping. I love it, it’s my new found relaxation self care. When we can always, the campsites fill up fast (especially those on the water). It’s so relaxing with the fresh air, the sounds of the water, being on the boat surrounded by nothing but water and beautiful scenery. However, I can’t divot without my air mattress and my battery operated mini fan. This photo was taken at Kerr Lake, NC. Everything about this lake is beautiful and quiet.

I also have a cat (name Quin) who’s adorable and very very independent, so when he hangs around I try to make the most of it. In this photo he’s taking up camp on my desk while I was trying to get client work done. After walking across the keyboard multiple times he settled down right beside me and fell asleep. I thought it was too cute how he fell asleep. Life is shard for him huh? He has a thyroid problem which is why his hair looks like it’s been electrocuted.

Give me all the books! I’m currently on “Red Velvet Cupcake Murder” because I finished “Cinnamon Roll Murder” in like 3 days. I love these Joanne Fluke books because it’s about a lady (Hannah) who owns a bakery with her assistant Lisa. Hannah finds all sorts of trouble tryin to help sole murder mysteries. plus, the book has recipes that she mentions in each chapter. My boyfriend has been begging me for years (even when we weren’t together) to make him something from the book.

Although I have changed my background (to column for organization and changed my folders to ones that are “glitter” to math my new background I still love this picture. I was having one of the worst anxiety/mania ridden days I’ve had in a long time. I wanted to do everything and nothing at the same time. My to do list was growing and I couldn’t get anything done because I couldn’t focus on just one thing. This photo reminds me that even on bad days there is still hope and inspiration to be found in these small moments.

I don’t post a lot of pictures of myself, I feel like an imposter when I do. Like I shouldn’t;t be posting them because you guys are here fir the content not to look at my mug. This photo was taken about an hour after I woke up one day. Again, this photo is a reminder that although days can be bad there are silver lining in some. I got up after this photo and had my mocha. Before having my mocha as you can see with my bedhead, no makeup, and non-existent expression I wasn’t feeling it that morning. This shot is very candid and I didn’t know if I would put it up or not but decided the hell with it.

Teqnically these two photos weren’t taken in the month of April but they’re worth sharing. What do you do with photo’s you love and enjoy looking at? I use CanvasPeople (this is not an affiliate link) for photos I want to hang on the wall that have a unique feel to them. I’ve started a canvas wall art gallery in my room where I can display these beautiful works of art; like the one pictured below. The photos are printed on canvas and come ready to hang, which is pretty awesome. I fell in love with this print which was from the top of the waterfall of Catawba Falls in NC, we also got the bridge from New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia hanging in the living room.

I love photography although all I have right now is an iPhone 11 and my sense of scenery. Sometimes it takes at least 10 tried before I get a photo I even remotely like but in the end it’s worth it.

Leave me a comment if any of these photos resonate with you. You can find inspiration everywhere even if it is just looking at a cute fluffy face or a bridge. A lot of these pictures show up on my Instagram too, you can check that out as well, if you like what ya see then give me a follow then leave a comment and I’ll follow you back.

      1. Awe the fun part of being a puppy mom!! Lol my puppy is a bigger one now but when he was super little you definitely couldn’t leave him alone 🤣 it’s so fun though!

      2. Haha, it’s my first puppy. I’ve rescued dogs before but never puppies. So I’ve been reading all these articles on training and whatever. Hah, it’s ridiculous how prepared I am.

    1. Haha, well thank you. I was annoyed because the construction next door woke me up at 7am. Which isn’t bad for most people but I’m not a morning person. Aww, thank you for the comment. I wasn’t going to post it but I was like I never show my face so why not post the worst one lol.

  1. What would the process be to turn your Yamper into a service dog? It’s great that you can use camping as a form of self-care, it’s not something I could do. I’m not one for sleeping rough like that, my back and knees are messed up in a normal bed, no chance I’m doing a sleeping bag ha ha ha

    1. Oh sometimes the camping trips don’t go as planned and I’m sore and ill too, hah. My psychiatrist recommended I turn him into a service dog as well. I have horrible anxiety, like crippling at times. So I think I’m going to do it, He’ll be a medium sized dog so he won’t be too big. Thank you for the recommendation too! (Your blog is amazing by the way!)

  2. Wonderful photos to share – congratulations on brining home Yamper next week, I hope all goes well with the little guy! I love the dog box you’ve already purchased, very cute! Also your photo of the water is super relaxing and instantly transferred me to a serene place. Thanks for sharing this post!

    1. I’m glad you liked the photo of the water, it was last weekend and much needed. It was so refreshing. We went out on the boat which was a little chilly but it was still fun. I’m already in loe with Yamper’s little self and I’ve bought him WAY too much stuff. hah, he’s just so cute.

  3. These are all great photos! I love how you highlight your favorite photos of the month! What a great idea!
