This year, I’m taking part in Susannah Conway’s August Break again. She describes it this way,
How it works: Each day, for the whole of August, take a photo and share it on your blog. You can add words if you want — or not. You can use any camera. You could share a series of photos, or miss a day out, or just post on weekends. There are no real rules, basically. This is all about being present and enjoying taking photos just for the hell of it. And perhaps reinvigorating your love for blogging, and/or taking a break from writing.
There are some regular posts I won’t be giving up in order to take part, like Something Good on Monday or Self-Compassion Saturday. Susannah has provided prompts for each day, and I am planning to use those.
I am only just now getting back home from a trip to Oregon, sifting through my email and dirty laundry, taking naps and going slow because I have a mild form of jet lag. The first two days, I posted my August Break pictures on Instagram, but I want to share here too, with a few words of explanation.
Day One: Breakfast
It was my last morning at my parent’s house, and this was what I grabbed for breakfast, but then my mom asked if I wanted scrambled eggs and an english muffin, so I saved the banana and protein bar for the airport shuttle ride, having a second breakfast later like a good little Hobbit.
