All right, guys! It's here! After many, many requests I decided to continue the tradition this year with another December Photo-a-Day Challenge! If you've been around these parts before or if you know me pretty well, you'll know photography is a huge passion of mine. It started out as an innocent interest when I bought my first DSLR back in 2010 and it has grown into very much of a passion.
That was the beginning of my inspiration to create this little challenge: to get you all inspired too and for you to get out there and take pictures during this special month! I'm sure you'll be around plenty of friends and family and what better time to create those lasting memories with a picture! I know so many people who tell me they don't even know where to begin when it comes to photography. So that's why I've created this list to sort of get you going and hopefully trigger that creative side of your brain! There are some repeats from last year's list but that's because so many of these prompts sum up this time of year so perfectly! So I hope you have fun with it! Take each prompt and interpret it the way you want! Feel free to use the one from last year if you want but this list has a few news ones and it's mixed up a bit!
Be sure to link up below with your social media of choice while participating in this challenge so we can all check out your stuff! So for example: if you're going to be posting via Instagram, leave the link to your Instagram account. If you're going to blog about it, leave your blog URL. And so on and so on.

Lydia wasn't too interested in the tea so I stuck to water infused with lemons...straight out of the Soma! I poured her a tea cup and very, very gently helped her sip from the cup. I used our china from when Mitch and I got married. One must take precautions when using that china after bringing it into the sunlight for about the fourth time...
This Soma filter has got to be one of the coolest things I've used in a long time. I couldn't be happier with the design and it doesn't make me want to cringe if I were to leave it out on the table for guests to see during a get-together. With such a sleek and stylish design, I didn't want to put the carafe back in the kitchen...so it stayed for the party and helped complete the tea party tablescape!
It only costs $49 for the Soma with a filter and when you make your purchase you are automatically entered into the fresh filter program which sends you a new (biodegradable!) filter every two months! The cost for this is only $12.99 and shipping is always free! I think that's a pretty sweet deal.
Here are a few more fun facts about the Soma water filter if you're itching to get your hands on one:
+the Soma was designed to filter 40 gallons of water. That amounts to about 2 months of usage per filter
+the carafe holds approximately six 8 oz glasses of water
+the Soma filter is made of coconut shell carbon, silk, and a BPA-free, biodegradable plant-based casing
+the Soma carafe is 10.7 inches tall and 6.5 inches wide and fits in most all full size refrigerators
You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest...where I'm sure you'll find lots of inspiration! Soma would be a fantastic gift for the holidays...not just for the person who will receive it but because of the people who will receive clean drinking water with every filter purchase. If you're looking for the ultimate water filter, get a Soma!
Lydia and I enjoyed our little tea party together with the freshest tea on the block! The scones got her all excited for some reason and I think she thought they were toys. Not sure what that means. But I guess she thought they were yummy enough to share with her bear! Enjoy the rest of the pictures from our afternoon tea with Soma!
