Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique


BridgetUnique

I like to think I’m quite unique.

I used to do scientific research. I was thinking and coming up with ideas that, possibly, no one else had thought of. I felt like I was making a contribution to the world that no one else could duplicate, because no one thought exactly the same way as I did or looked at problems in exactly the same way. That made me fairly unique.

Now, I’m a stay at home mom. I spend my days with two toddlers that I brought into this world. With their specific combination of DNA, some from me and some from my husband, they are definitely one of a kind. And I’m the only one in the world that could make them exactly what they are. That makes me especially unique.

wet leaf-2And a photographer. I like to think that I can take my camera and capture a perfectly unique image. I can look through my viewfinder and see things in a way that, maybe, no one else would think to choose. Or maybe I can pick up my camera and capture a moment in time that no one else in the world could possibly have seen it if I hadn’t snapped a photo. That makes me somewhat unique.

And a writer. When I sit down and write, which is not as often as I’d like, I put words together in a way that is uniquely my own. A million people in the world could sit down and write about the exact same topic and not use the exact combination of words that I can. That certainly makes me rather unique.

But it’s all these things together (biologist, mother, photographer, and writer) that make me the absolutely unique person sitting at my computer, typing these words right now.

How do you define yourself? What makes you unique? I’d love to know. ;)

Love and Photo Fun,

Becca ♥

October Photo Challenge Day 18: Made Me Smile Today


Today, I was writing at my laptop while the kids, Baby Girl, 2, and Baby Boy, 3, played in the game room. When I looked around the corner to make sure they were okay, this is what I saw:

Toddler Hide n Seek: “Found You!”

He was crouching behind the open cabinet door and she was pointing at him, saying, “Found you!” It was so cute. They play hide and seek sometimes with their big brother, who is 13. Baby Boy really likes it and, apparently, wanted to share the fun with Baby Girl. ;)

You can find the whole list for this month’s photo challenge here or over on the right —>;. There’s still lots of month left, so I hope you’ll join in. If you do, be sure to let me know in the comments so I can see what you come up with. These monthly challenges are so much fun!!

Those adorable babies make me smile everyday. :D What makes you smile? Got a funny photo? Show me!!
