february instagram challenge


Well, I made it through the FMS February Photo a Day challenge!

It was well worth the effort. Having to find inspiration every day was a great creative challenge, and made me reflect more on how all the things around me speak to me. Instagram in general is good for that. It trains your eye to see beauty and capture the quieter moments that paint a bigger picture of your happiness.

Above are the five most popular photo-a-day shots from last month.

1. February 17: In your hand
2. February 25: On your bedside table
3. February 5: Something you smelled
4. February 14: Love is...
5. February 19: I am...

I think I'll take a break from the fun next month. Towards the end it got dangerously close to feeling like a chore, and you know I don't want to taint my love for instagram.

Thanks to those of you following along and leaving fun comments! To see my other shots, check out my instagram.



  1. I need to start following you on instagram, I totally missed out on the fun! I get how it can start feeling like a chore if you're forced to take pictures every single day. I'm mostly concerned about annoying my followers with too many food pictures!

  2. you really are tempting me to create an instragram account!!!


  3. that cookie looks so so so delicious. i really am going to miss february! i want all things heart shaped all the time :)

  4. I've never done one of these b/c I'm sure after a few days I would forget for like a week then I would be playing catch up! I do love instagram though!!

  5. I enjoyed following along with your instagram challenge! I'd been thinking about doing one myself, since I feel like I often forget to instagram things that I wish I'd gotten down later, but I haven't done it for exactly the reason you've mentioned- I don't want instagram to tun into a chore!

    p.s. we MUST get lunch next time you're near MIT!

    1. Agreeeeed! This snow has been throwing off my schedule, but I'll let you know when I'm back over there.

  6. Forgive my ignorance.....do you need a smart phone for instagram? Great shots! Xox My fav is "I am" :)


Thanks for making me smile. =)
