Day 42/365: In the inside cover of this book there is a short note written by my mom that says this: "Danette read this while on vacation in August 1993 - 8 years old." I have kept this book all these years. I remember getting this book, reading this book, and loving this book. This is the first piece of writing that I remember truly loving and has since fueled my love even more. This story is a short 58 pages but I remember that it took me quite a while to get through at 8 years old. Today, however, I found myself reading a 260 page book in a few hours. I go through spurts - I will read like crazy for a couple of months - book after book, and then I'll go a couple of months without.
My love of reading is something that I hope to show and teach my kids. Books are amazing! They are worlds that you can escape in. You can become a beautiful princess or a pirate sailing the huge seas. You can immerse yourself in fiction or fact. The opportunities are endless.
I read something once that said that the pages of every book contain a magic to each individual reader. I am a true advocate of not judging a book by its cover - the saying is true because you never know where a book may take you.
I have taken on a challenge to take one photo a day for this entire year. I have been excited to join up with an amazing community of talented photographers who have also taken on this challenge. The goals I have for myself this year is to, first of all, complete the whole year of 365 photos. I also want to allow this challenge to teach me all I can about the equipment I have in order to better myself as a photographer. I am excited to learn and experience so much this year through this challenge. Thank you for taking the time to look through my journey. It truly means a lot to me.
