January Gratefulness and Books

Wow. The end of January is here! I have a couple of annual  challenges this year. First is a reading challenge. This year I would like to read 75 book. I have to admit I started off strong and got through 10 books in January. 

1. Dancing with Butterflies by Reyna Grande
2. The Key to Living by Victor Villasenor
3. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
4. The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks
5. Labor Day by Joyce Maynard
6. The Opportunist by Tarryn Fischer
7. Dirty Red by Tarryn Fischer
8. Thief by Tarryn Fischer
9. Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard & Florence Atwater
10. Turn Around Bright Eyes by Rob Sheffield

I also started a new photography challenge. This year I am going to try to post a photo a day of something I am grateful for. I have an album on Facebook. The goal is to attempt to broaden my photography subjects and to stop and remind myself that there is always something to be thankful for. Even on those really hard and stressful days. (Like every single one of them this week).
