My husband likes to joke about my family’s love of challenges. It’s true — when we go on family cruises we dominate in trivia and it gets pretty serious, because our competitive nature drives us to not only play, but to win! We cannot resist an opportunity to win, which can get pretty annoying actually, but it’s also good, because really we’re pushing ourselves to be better, accomplish more. At least we can say we tried!
My latest challenge is Red Eye’s weekly photo contest. I’ve entered five times so far and have been featured as an honorable mention/finalist for the themes Winter, Beautiful & Love (that entry below). Am I getting a little obsessed? Absolutely, but I love having ready made inspiration every week, and it sure does feel good to see one of my images published on their website. The only thing better, I’m sure, is being published in the actual paper as a winner. My time is coming. Challenge accepted!
