Through The Lens Thursday is a one-year photography project, where every week, my project partner, Greta of GFunkified and I, will post a picture (or pictures) we have taken based on a prompt. Our hope is that together, we can teach and learn from each other, stay accountable to our goal of improving our skills, and hopefully, be taking some gorgeous photographs.
This week’s prompt is “Movement”.

Given that many of you are freezing your nuts off in what is known as the Polar Vortex, it seems a little cruel to show you a fan.
This fan keeps us cool, therefore sane. Year-round tropical weather sounds glorious when you are snowed in, and going out the door equals a gargantuan task of putting everyone in their cold weather gear. Year-round tropical weather also means nearly 100% humidity, which equals hell for me, a sweater (as in I sweat, not that I resemble a piece of clothing).
I won’t complain.
I have my fan.
May your weather get friendlier, my friends.
(What do you think of my movement photo? This IS a photography exercise, so I would love any critique!)
Next week’s prompt: White
For the full list of prompts, check out my Through The Lens Thursday page. If you’d like to join Greta and I, but not necessarily blog your picture, join our Flickr group, where we upload our photos, and give comments, or helpful critique on each other’s photographs.
So, a while back, I wrote about being done now that we have two children.
Never say never, right? Because I wrote about three children being the new two over at Families In The Loop (a new writing gig! I will be there every 6 weeks or so). Come weigh in. Have you ever said “I’m done!”, then gone back on your word?
And I’ve been stuffing my face with these homemade granola bars I made for my toddler (what? They’re YUMMY) – I am sharing this very easy recipe along with 5 other recipes for delicious and healthy homemade toddler snacks at Everyday Family. What’s your go-to kid snack? (for the kids, not you)
What’s new with you this week?
