The Mind of Avie | Quotography Monday #2


Monday has arrived, again! If you are like me, and the majority of people I know, Mondays are not the most welcomed day of the week. I have a great way to start your monday and one I have enjoyed, Quotography Monday. It gives me another reason (not that I needed more than I have already) to look at all my photos I have taken in the past week or so and add a quote the is meaningful to the photo in some way. What a special way for me to showcase some of the photos I had taken while on vacation earlier this month! 

The photo above was taken just two weeks ago when my hubby, little younger sister (I feel like I can't say little sister anymore. One, she is taller than me now. Two, she isn't little anymore. Three, she is 23 going on 24 years old), and I went on vacation to visit some family in Washington State. In the photo is my husband, father, and myself. The bridge above is the infamous Deception Pass bridge. It is the only way to drive onto Whidbey Island by vehicle, other than taking the ferry. Deception Pass Bridge is 180-ft above the ocean depending on the tide levels. Tourists are able to walk across the whole bridge, which by the way no matter how many times I've walked across, I am still terrified when I cross the bridge! 

I love everything about Washington, well maybe not the weather all year round, but I most definitely love the scenery! 

If you have photos you could match quotes with, this link party is for you! Join us for Quotography Mondays and link up at the same time.
