Well, I haven’t done this for a while! Four months to be exact. I had a baby in September and thought at the time that I’d take a few weeks off from doing the weekly Flickr Pickr (not that it’s a huge job by any means, I just didn’t want to have anything to think about other than my new little person). Turns out that I took more than a few weeks off but I thought about the Pickr every Friday, which is when I would usually write it, but just couldn’t bring myself to sit down and get it done. I decided today that it was time to either pass the torch or just suck it up and write a post, so here I am.

Just because I stopped writing for a while doesn’t mean that folks stopped sending in their beautiful photos so I decided to compile a selection of my favourites from the last four months. Thank you all so much for continuing to share your talent and images!
