Thanks² Days 1-11 and the Gimme Some Blog Empire

Posted by Moe Monday, November 12, 2012

For the second year in a row, my good friend Beth has inspired the masses to give thanks via Instagram photography every day during the month of November. It's a fun and eye-opening practice that I was so excited about this year, that on Halloween Day I kept thinking "Oh man I can't wait for tomorrow when Thanks² starts!"

So my photos have been steadily hitting my Instagram feed along with other random shots, but I thought I'd collect them here to see all at once. So here's the past 11 days worth of photos, and I hope to post them daily for the rest of the month, sometimes with an anecdote or two.

In other news, I want to share about a new "blog empire", as I'm referring to it, that I'm very excited about. Most likely you've already visited Gimme Some Oven at some point in the past three and half years if you have any interest in cooking/baking/making food. Well, GSO founder and blogger Ali Ebright, a friend of mine, has expanded her blog to include four other blogs--two of which are authored by my aforementioned friend Beth (gimmesomereads.com) and dear friend Sarah (gimmesomefilm.com). The initial posts are beautiful, inspiring, and fun and I'm excited to have new blogs to follow. Check it out!
