Making Memories in February: 34 Highlights

In keeping with my birthday month tradition, here are some of my favorite memories made throughout February.  This is my seventh go at documenting the fun parts of February (because, let’s face it, it’s a pretty depressing month weather-wise!) as I force others to celebrate along with me.  🙂  The last couple years are here and here on the blog.  As you’ll see, the focus wasn’t on fancy photography, but on capturing the memories.  Thanks to all who helped make it a great month!

 

#1- Watching the Super Bowl with my community group from church  (All fun, except for the ending!)
