Mendi's May Photos: Days 1-16

Photo-a-Day is back!! We took the month of April off, but after having so much fun with March's Photo-a-Day challenge (which you can see here and here), we were excited to get back on this bandwagon for May. We're going to split it up again this month, so today you'll see my pictures from days 1 through 16 and at the end of the month you'll see Jayme's days 17 through 31. So, here's a little sneak peek into the world through my eyes (via Instagram)...


day 1 -- peace
My "me" time.

day 2 -- skyline
Crossing the James River on my way home after work.

day 3 -- something you wore today
One of my favorite new scarves. Check your Target.

day 4 -- fun!
Still loving this album. Favorite songs: 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10. See...lots to love.

day 5 -- bird
This is Charles Dickens. He watches over and protects our den. Don't mess with Charles...he's ferocious.

day 6 -- you
I snuck the hubz in the shot with me.

day 7 -- someone that inspires you
One particular blogger that I admire for her creativity, her writing & her style is {av} from Long Distance Loving. Jayme & I are stoked that we're meeting her June 3rd @ Blogger Blitz DC.

day 8 -- a smell you adore
My new Dreams Unlimited Sun Fresh from The Body Shop. Summer in a bottle.

day 9 -- something you do everyday
Blog.  :)

day 10 -- a favorite word
Live for 'em!!

day 11 -- kitchen
I love all of the plants (that I haven't managed to kill) residing in the corner behind my kitchen sink. My itty bitty greenhouse.

day 12 -- something that makes you happy
Shoes. OMG. Shoes.

day 13 -- mum
An early morning Mother's Day phone call to my mom who was in Charlotte visiting my sister & her family. We'll be celebrating this weekend once she & my dad are back home here in Richmond.

day 14 -- grass
All of the credit for our pretty green grass goes to my hubz. I'm not much of a yardwork kind of gal.

day 15 -- love
Seriously. What's not to love?!? (left: Nugget; right: Zoey)

day 16 -- what you're reading
I'm obsessed with my magazine subscriptions. This is only some of the ones that I get.

Are you participating in Fat Mum Slim's May Photo-a-Day?? Or do you get down with some other Instagram link-up party?? Pretty, pretty please let us know if you are, because we want to snoop through your pictures too.
