December Photo-a-Day

I am so excited!  This marks a full year of Photo-a-Day for me!  Yay!  I have learned so much from this process…I look at things very differently now.  I have found so much beauty in some very simple things!  Thanks to everyone out there for the encouragement…

Grab your beverage of choice,  pull up a chair and have a look.  For this month, being a festive time of year, I utilized a fun App, “Rhonna Designs”, and had fun adding to the photos for that festive flair!

First, my FaceBook group of friends:
