I Heart Faces Photo Challenge | Bright and Vivid  The photo challenge this week at I Heart Faces is “Bright and Vivid.” I chose this photo of my almost 18 month old granddaughter taken last week showing her colorful personality and “I can do it myself” attitude while climbing onto the new stool I bought her. This girl not only lights up the picture, but […]

Very cute! Love the colors! As a mother of a nineteen-month-old, I can definitely identify with the “do-it-myself” attitude:)

Breanna, thank you for looking at my photo … how honored I am! Your site is fabulous and I have seen your winning I Heart Photos in the past and have checked out your website — very nice with such beautiful work. Thank you and good luck on your entry.

thanks so much! your comments are too sweet, I really, really appreciate them!! - April 25, 2011 - 8:22 PM

Shawna, thank you for checking out my post … there were so many entries so I feel great just having had you take a peek.

Joanna - April 25, 2011 - 9:52 PM

That is adorable!!

Laura Higgs - April 25, 2011 - 11:59 PM

Adorable. My curiosity has gotten the best of me……What and the heck are you going to with them when they get older???? though I am looking forward to seeing them get older.
Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I’m am enjoying the process… though I don’t know how to reply back to comments without making a comment on my own. Still learning…….

Laura - April 26, 2011 - 8:13 AM

Laura, you made me laugh. I have a farmer who has agreed to take the chicks whenever I am ready to deliver them. Only trouble is I am getting attached to the stinkin’ things … especially the bigger yellow ones who are starting to try and fly out of the Rubbermaid once in a while. I suppose the day I come home to chicks who have “flown the coop” into my hobby room will be the day they go make friends with 30 other chickens on the farm. I’ll be sad though as it’s fun to watch them grow so fast. They were itty bitty the day I brought them home at a day old and now just one week later they are getting lots of wing and tail feathers. About commenting, yes, your comments go on your blog when you reply to someone but you have a few choices. In Word Press, I have an option for people to sign up for replies if they want. I’m sure Blog Spot does too. Then your readers can choose to select “to receive comments” on a particular post or not. What I did to be sure you got this post was to attach your e-mail address as well. If I wanted, I could then go to my blog and “edit” out any part of the comment I want. Hope that helps. There is quite a learning curve in starting a blog as I’m sure you’re finding out. You are doing great — looking forward to more!

Ashley - April 27, 2011 - 3:53 AM

Very cute photo and chick!!! 🙂 Good luck on your entry! - April 27, 2011 - 5:41 AM

Thank you Ashley … I checked out your entry as well and that photograph of your kitten was beautiful. You probably have a winner there! Good luck, Mary
