Weekly Photo Challenge: Today – USA

1 June 2012, 15:30 – Virginia, USA

Today I’m feeling physically under the weather but emotionally over the moon about all the new friends and kindred spirits I’ve met here within a mere 24hrs after getting freshly pressed. It is such a gift to be embraced in a place of mutual interest and passion for the world. A world that is wonderful and kind and generous, very much like all of you who have showered me with your enthusiasm for the experiences we share. The rain outside doesn’t dim the light of gratitude that shines inside for this amazing gift.

    How did I miss you getting freshly pressed? Wonderful post, well deserving of being fp’d. xxx

      Thank you Ailsa! Btw, your theme this week is a tough but interesting one! Still thinking on it.

        Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I am in awe of the photos you took of the Sossuvlei Dunes. xx

        Ha! I’ve never before or after Sossusvlei captured such stunning scenery. There you only need to point and shoot which is exactly all I did! The thing about getting fp’d is that it’s a hard act to follow since they select your best work.

        I can imagine it would be nerve-wracking trying to come up with a ‘top that’ post. 🙂

    Thank you! That worked – just was not paying attention I guess.

    Found your blog today thanks to the “Freshly Pressed” mention. Love your template and so thought I’d use it. But I can’t seem to be able to get a thumbnail picture from a post on the first starting page. How do you do this? Thanks for your help!

      Hi Sanjeev. When you edit a post there is a link on the right hand column below tags that asks you for a “featured image”. Click on that and select the photo you want to appear on the min page thumbnail. Good luck and thanks for visiting!

    It cheers me just to read your lovely words here, Wanderlustress! I feel the same about the blogging community–I had no idea!

    Rain can be too much sometimes! However, as you say, it’s not something that should dampen (so to speak) our mood.

      Nooooo, not when there’s so much good stuff happening! Have a great weekend!
