One Little Word bloghop April

Hi, welcome to my blog! Great to have you over.
It's blog hopping time again.
The start of this April blog hop is at Margie's blog: http://xnomads.typepad.com/blog
If you are following the blog hop you came from Sam's blog. The blog hop will go live at 8 AM PST.
My word is LOVE.
This month the assignment was to take action with your word.
First I thought a bit about what I have done in the first 2 months with my word. And it hit me that I concentrated on my love for others and how I can show that to them. All my attention was on my family, who needed that very hard (and still needs it!).
But I did forget myself a bit in that process. So my action should concentrate this month on loving myself. Reloading my energy, being sweet for me.
So I decided to do 2 things this month:
- Walk 3 or 4 times a week
- On Wednesday (my day off) do something just for me, something I like, something that relaxes me. Like scrapbooking, taking photo's, reading a book.

This month I walked almost every day and it felt so good. Walking relaxes me, gives me time to get my thoughts in line. And it is so easy to combine with photography. Almost every walk I take my camera with me. And I followed a photography course with Faith Raider. She was so inspiring! Thanks Faith for improving my photo's!

I also did a bit of scrapping. I made the ATC's for the swap on the OLW message board. Here is what I made:
 I've sent my ATC's to the host, so now it's waiting time...
My March layout isn't ready yet. Working on it, so I'll show you when it's ready!

Thanks for stopping by! Have fun with the rest of the blog hop.

The next stop is Lynn's blog:

Miranda,
Your words really mean a lot to me in this post. My action for my OLW (which is Gift) was to be kind to myself. I can take inspiration from what you are doing to be loving to yourself. Thanks for sharing!
