#MAYIVEREAD 🌸 | May Monthly Challenge

MAYREADS-Recovered.pngI’m back! and with another monthly photo challenge. Making and hosting a monthly challenge last year was so fun, I loved scrolling through the tag and seeing all the photos so much that I decided to do round two! Though I’ve learned that trying to come up with an entire month’s worth of inspiring prompts is … pretty hard.

Anyway, here is #MAYIVEREAD (mayiveread .. todayiveread .. get it 😉). Read on for a full list of the prompts plus a little bit of what my idea was behind each one; it’s not as vague as I think my last challenge was but I’m still really excited to see how everyone interprets each day.
