Photo A Day Challenge – April, 2014

Congratulations to everyone who made it through the Blogging from A to Z Challenge this past month – it was quite a ride, wasn’t it?! I had a fantastic, creative, and busy time throughout April as I worked on my own Tangling from A to Z challenge theme, took advantage of the fact that

I was already posting daily to jump on the NaBloPoMo and Ultimate Blog Challenge bandwagons, AND further developed my iPhoneography skills by participating in the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge. (In spite of all the other blogging and tangling goodness going on, you didn’t think I’d forgotten about my photo a day, did you?!)

I’ve been sharing my photos on Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, and the FMS Photo A Day group on Facebook, but thought I’d also periodically do a round-up of my photos here on Alphabet Salad for the benefit of my readers who aren’t active on any of these platforms.

Today’s post is a long one, as I’m sharing the whole set of photos for April – all 30 of them!

Hope you enjoy!

(Clicking on any of the photos below will take you to my Flickr account… and, depending on your browser, hovering over them will give you – in some cases – an explanation as to how I interpreted the prompt.)

Not mine

My fave part of the day

#fmsphotoaday April 10 - My fave part of the day. Evening: work is done, and it's time to relax on the couch with my husband, the cats, a bowl of popcorn, and an episode of Castle. My happy place!
