BrightSquare Challenge; End Of April!

I have so enjoyed BrightSquare Challenge hosted by Becky ~ The Life of B, she does such an amazing job putting together galleries of everyone that joins in the fun. This will be my last post as the month is almost over and I wanted to put together one last entry. As I was thinking about it and as I’ve mentioned before and I know others think this way too, of sharing a theme. I thought it only fitting to share my love of my horses! ❤

This is from last year with Chloe’s dark grey roan coat glistening in the sun. My grey horse Zack is bright white and his coloring is actually called a flea bitten grey. He has a bunch of dark flecks which are the “flea bitten” parts. Kind of funny because horses do not have fleas. I’ve never looked up the history of how this name came about, but he was the sweetest horse and Chloe’s best friend. More the other way around, as Zack was very attached to Chloe! Silly boy!

What beautiful FUN memories and Chloe and I are doing great. It brings me great joy to share and I hope you can feel the joy and happiness these beautiful creatures bring to my life. Thank you Becky for a wonderful challenge and I am so happy I have been able to participate. 😀

Happy Bright Cowgirl,

BrightSquare Challange; April Shines!

Even though my title is April shines, I am going to share some photos that I never did use before. I had uploaded them and for what ever reason did not use these particular photos a few months ago. I am so excited to share them here as my quirky brain wants to almost always have a theme. I know some of my blog posts I jump from subject to subject in my crazy life. But with these super fun challenges, I just can’t help myself to themes!

My life is so much brighter because of my family. They bring me so much joy and happiness and so when I can do a little traveling to visit them it is just so much fun.

We head to Pismo Beach because they have this AMAZING Cinnamon roll store that bake them fresh every day. I have shared about these cinnamon rolls before but on this day I took a lot of photos of the ocean and the pier. Thanks for visiting my BrightSquare challenge post hosted by BeckyB~ Life of B. She does such an amazing job with her challenges. It is so fun to join in when I can and share my brightsquare photos!

Have a wonderful, bright, fun-filled day!

Bright Square Challenge ~ Fun in the Sun

Welcome to my post to my interpretation of Bright, for The Life of B ~ Becky’s challenge for the month of April. The theme is in my title and what fun to share what brings some light and smiles in this wonderful month. The word “Bright” brings so much to mind and for me I am sharing what I found the last few weeks that inspired me to share. This photo I thought was perfect to start as on my walk the sun was shining so brightly coming up over our local hills on this sunny morning. So amazing how brightly it can shine up and around the tree tops!

To continue on the sky theme as I rode on this fun cloudy day I just could not believe the silvery clouds with the sun shining so perfectly around them in the sky. This just brings sparkling cheerful thoughts of enjoying nature and all the beautiful field flowers that will soak up the suns rays that push through the clouds. I just felt this was a glorious sight, look at that colorful yellow hue, it’s brilliant!

I know, I know don’t use cell phone while driving. But I promise there wasn’t any cars anywhere near me only that one in front of me and I couldn’t help it, look at that beautiful sun setting! I even had a buggy windshield, it was worth the shot. I love how it glows above the mountain so magnificently! This just makes me smile brightly! 😀

When I pulled into the driveway from my long drive home and after watching the setting sun I couldn’t believe it was a full moon. I had to try and take a photo! I thought this isn’t too bad considering I only have a cell phone for my photo taking. I feel as full as the moon after spending a weekend with my grandchildren. I hope you enjoyed my Bright, joyous, fun post full of what I interpret as Bright for this week. I plan on sharing weekly for the month of April. Becky’s wonderful challenge is so FUN and you can join daily, weekly or when ever you get the chance. You can find her here!

Smiling Brightly,

SquareUp; Hawaii Fun Photos!

This is the last day of the photo challenge #SquareUps photos share with it featuring the word “Up” ~ I went through my photos and had a few in mind and so here is what I decided to share. We were able to travel to Hawaii last year in February. We made it there and back again before the shutdown and some day I would love to go back. Here are a couple more photos I wanted to share. 😀

The rules of the challenge for my friends who will read this post wondering what am I doing? I have to format my photos to be square. Thankful this is easy to do before I post them. I edit them into a square shape for this photo challenge hosted by Becky B ~ The Life of B blog. She has these wonderful photo challenges throughout the year every quarter. This challenge for Square “Up” was for the month of January. You could post a photo every day, or every week, or whenever you can. I decided to join right on the last day. The next Square photo challenge will be in April. Here is the last photo I will share for Upright and Upbeat!

I hope I met the challenge correctly. I made all my photos “square” and I love the theme “Up”. I had fun looking through my photos when these popped up and I thought what a fun way to finish out this month!

I know I could have shared 31 photos for all the days of January, but I am afraid that would take me too long. So I guess I am joining with 3 photos for the last 3 days. Lol 😀

Thank you for hosting Becky and including us all on this fun #SquareUps photo challenge. I hope ya’ll enjoy!
