one word wednesday: morning.

If there's one thing I could use more of, it's inspiration...so I jumped in when my blogging girlfriends emailed about starting a new photo challenge: One Word Wednesday. It's not about elaborately staged, perfect photos. (Whew.) But rather a simple challenge to keep one word in mind throughout the week, then pick up the camera when inspiration strikes.

I hope you jump in, too. Join us every Wednesday by sharing a snapshot that celebrates a real scene from your life. You can share via your blog or Instagram...or both! Each word will be announced one week in advance, so you'll have plenty of time. Just leave a link or add hashtag #onewordwednesday to your photos. Next week's word: PINK! 
 



Morning. When we first moved to Kuwait--to our tiny ghetto apartment--I hated mornings. Gabe was off to work by 5am, and while I'm not one to easily feel lonely, he wouldn't be home until nearly 7pm. So it was just me, the tiny apartment and a long, long 14 hours. I'll fully admit that once I cried and begged Gabe to stay home with me. Alright...more than once.

In time, we moved. We got a kitten, a better view and a more stable internet connection to help fill those hours.

Now, mornings usually commence like the photo above. Kitty snuggles up on the desk, where she demands I place her favorite pink blanket near the window. I make a latte, read the news and we both watch the sunrise over the Persian Gulf. Those early days of loneliness feel so far gone. No more tears, and I now relish the few hours of quiet before the world beneath my window is overtaken by an overwhelming amount of street noise.

  9. I love this! It would be super fun for my blog. Question: if I don't have a twitter or instagram, can we tag them on Tumblr? Will they still be seen?

  12. Imran will analyse your case, He will never start anything without being sure he can obtain the results and will never raise anyone's hopes in vain, If the case is solvable, Imran will discuss the best way to solve problem. Results can be obtained very quickly after a single week of work with the fastest and most powerful methods. Other methods can be used, that take longer but are as effective in the end.

    Every work can be carried out remotely, such as the return of the loved one, break up spells, works of protection, business development, etc.

    Very serious spells only may require the client to meet Imran. Every consultation, be it in the office, through the Internet or by phone, will remain completely confidential. This is dr.savior basic rule for his work, which he will never break under any circumstances. Love is the most beautiful thing that can happen to you! In the field of love, clairvoyant-medium Imran has the fantastic ability to make you meet your soul mate or the return of your loved one, wherever they may be by using one of the seven keys which is named "DR.SAVIOR."
