I’ve been taking part in monthly photo a day challenges on my Instagram account (heyyitsashley) and I’ve been having a lot of fun with them (when I don’t fall behind on pictures). I figured I would also cross post them to my blog as well. I think for the purpose of blogging, I will post 3-4 per blog post that I do throughout the month. That way I am not spamming my blog with a million photo a day posts back to back. You can follow me on Instagram (linked above) if you want to see them daily though! Some of these pictures will be taken with my Nikon. There will also be some taken with my iPhone X.
I skipped quite a few days. I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to take pictures of, didn’t have older backup pictures, or I just completely forgot about them. Here are the rest of the pictures for the challenge though. This post will also contain more pictures than the usual four. I want to get all of them up since it’s now February.
Days 22-31 of January
Day 22: Scenic.
Instagram Caption: thalassophile 🌊
Thalassophile: A lover of the sea, someone who loves the sea/ocean. I am kind of obsessed with this ocean shot. I got a couple more really awesome ones too, but I’ll share them another day.
Day 25: My morning view.
Instagram Caption: ♡♡♡♡
Random view outside of my house. I was walking my dog Dax before work and decided to snap a picture of the sky, because it looked really pretty that day.
Day 26: Thank you for…
Instagram Caption: i have been waiting YEARS for this day. words cannot even express how happy i was when the dangerous summer said they were back! i am so stoked for their new album that’s finally here! 🖤🎵
What my caption says! THE DANGEROUS SUMMER HAS A NEW ALBUM OUT NOW!! Their last album was in 2013, because they broke up. When I heard they were getting back together, I was beyond so stoked! THEN their album was finally released and it was EVERYTHING I ever hoped it would be and more. I’ve listened to it at least 20+ times on repeat and I listened to it at least once all the way through every day since it came out. IT’S SO DAMN GOOD! AND ALL THE FEELS, HOLY CRAP!! GO LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM or at least listen to Color and Luna; those two are my absolute favorite. But I swear, every single song is on point and amazing. You will feel things.
Day 28: Text.
Instagram Caption: i am pretty stoked to read this. 📖🖤
I seen this book floating around a little bit and honestly, it’s perfect for me. I am really stoked to read it. Hopefully I get around to it really soon. Currently have a ton of books on my immediate TBR though, because my library decided it would be cool to check out all my e-book holds to me at one time. I would recheck them out later, but a lot of them were holds that I’ve been waiting on for a long time.
Day 29: Magic.
Instagram Caption: throwback to disney. ♡
DISNEY WORLD. I NEED TO GO BACK! I used an older picture for this day, because I honestly had no idea what to take a picture of for “magic” and HELLOOOO….DISNEY IS FULL OF MAGIC!
Day 30: Secret.
Instagram Caption: adventure. 🌲
This is also an older picture I don’t think I ever posted anywhere. The hubby and I went to this really cool nature trail park last year. I want to go back, because I don’t think we were able to walk all the trails. There were several different ones.
Starting a new monthly challenge today for February! Hopefully I can actually complete an entire month without skipping. 😛

LOVE the pic of the ocean and the one of the sky! Such pretty blues!
I have another picture of the ocean that I haven’t posted yet with some waves! 😀 I am obsessed with taking pictures of the sky, lol
Ooo I can’t wait to see that one! I love wave pics. So pretty and oddly calming lol.
Beautiful photos. I am hoping to participate in one of these challenges this month!
Thank you! I am going to participate in another one this month, but I forgot about day one already! OOPS.
I love, “Scenic”, “My Morning View”, and “Magic”. I’m actually going to Disneyland (California) today, so it’s funny how I was your photo this morning! And I can’t believe I was one of the winners of the giveaway!!!!! I’m so ecstatic! I’ll email you asap about the book! ❤
Thanks, Kelly! 😀 I hope you had fun at Disneyland! I love Disney World, but I definitely want to go to Disneyland in California one day. Congrats again on winning my giveaway! I emailed you back.
