    #fbf State Fair

    A few weeks ago was my last Friday photo challenge blog post. I do miss them, but I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to really think about it. In that blog post I mentioned that I would maybe substitute my photo challenge posts with a flashback Friday post, but again I’ve been so busy that I haven’t even done those yet. Until today that is! I was scrolling through my photo album on my phone and came across this photo from two years ago. It was about this time 2 years ago that I went with a friend to the NJ State Fair. I wrote about…

    Photo Challenge: Partners

    When I saw that this past week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post was “Partners” I immediately knew what photo to use. Last week, I went to the State Fair (video and pictures to come later!) and there was a tightrope act. Honestly, I don’t know how they walk across a tightrope let alone do tricks on it! And also, at what point in your life do you think to yourself, “I want to be a tightrope walker when I grow up”? In any case, not only do these performers need to be able to get themselves across the rope looking like it’s not a big deal and not seeming…
