14 Days of Summer, A Photo Challenge

One of my favorite ways to document our life and the fun we have is with photos. Over the years I’ve learned that I either do a really great job with this, or a really bad one. When it comes to me and photography, there is just no in between.  I take #allthephotos or none.

Recently I started sharing Instagram stories. (Why did it take me so long to get on the IG story bus?!) (Are you following me on Instagram, if not come fix that, m’kay) (How long could I talk in parentheses before it got weird?) (What was I talking about anyways…) However, since I started sharing Instagram stories, my Instagram photos have become nearly non-existent 😳 . So in hopes of capturing a few frame worthy summer memories, and getting back on track with sharing those photos, how about a mini photo challenge?!

Once again I am teaming up with Stephanie for another Instagram photo challenge. This time we are going back to a mini challenge #becauselife. Mini challenges feel more practical and realistic to accomplish, especially during the chaotic season of summer. Yes? No? Is it just me?

Starting July 1st we are inviting you to join us for 2 weeks of patriotic, summer fun, lazy hazy days photo prompts. 

So save the graphic, share the graphic, invite your friends, or anything else you’d like! We are excited to kick off this challenge and we always roll with the idea of the more that join us, the merrier. 

Don’t forget to tag your photos #14DaysofSummer17 so we can find them and give them some love!

    I love these photo challenges. Now let’s just hope I can finish it!

  • Jessica

    Yay! I’m so excited! I love photo challenges. 🙂

    • You are so great at completing them friend!

  • Ok going to try my best with this one 😀

  • Perfect, I’m in!

  • I just wrote these in my work calendar LOL

    • If I am going to get one done, it HAS to be wrote down where I’ll see it!

  • Lizzie Simantz

    Ok, 14 days, I got this!! LOL! I still haven’t done IG stories, I tell you, I’m a complete fail when it comes to instagram!!

    • Haha! But at least you post pictures. I haven’t done one for days…. oooopppps.

  • Living on Cloud Nine

    How fun! I absolutely love the start of the first four days with red, white and blue in America!

    • Wasn’t that a fun idea I had. Glad Stephanie thought so too!

  • I am right there with you! It’s easy to let the regular “old” Instagram sit there without any new content when you’re doing stories all day long! I love your stories and the little peeks into your life. 🙂 You know I’m all in for this challenge!

    • I can always count on you to join in. Thanks friend.

  • Love hearing your voice on stories- makes the blog come to life.

    • SO true. If I hear someones voice enough, I tend to read their blog with their voice in my head.

  • I love this! I’m going to try to remember to do a few of these!

    • We would love to have you join as much as possible :)!

  • I always love your photo challenges! So much fun. I’m hoping we have signal where we are vacationing (in the mountains) so that I can join in.

    • I’ll cross my fingers with you. I always love seeing your photos challenge photos.

  • Whitney Jordan

    Great idea! I’m super excited about this challenge for July 🙂

    • It should be fun and 14 day challenges are just SO much easier to do.

  • Give me all the parenthesis because you know I love them lol. The mini challenge is a great idea and I will say Im in 🙂

  • Found you on a Google search – joining in! Love that it is a mini challenge and will fit in with my 4th of July trip to see family ~

    • So excited you found us, we’d love to have you join the fun!

  • First, Aria was on my lap and she said oooh who is that? what’s her name? I told her Beth. She said can we call her something else since she isn’t here. I said okay what do you want to call her? She said how about cute. I laughed, then she said No wait how about flower. Flower honey bee! So, in case you ever felt like changing your name keep those in mind.
    Second, I’m with you on either all or none of picture taking. I either take 700 or 0. Third, I would join in but I’m 110% certain I will forget. I’m the worst of the worst when it comes to IG challenges.

    • And you just made my night. Aria can call me almost anything she’d like. I’ll definitely keep those suggestions in mind too 😂😂😂. I am totally with you. I need to start taking my photos sooner than later. Maybe I could just do them all in one day? Is that cheating?!

      • She’s been into ‘cute’ lately. She said called me a cutie earlier today. Makes me giggle! 4 is pretty fun, especially when it isn’t dramatic.
