1. Let’s get clicky with my Moments that Matter Photo Challenge. Capture moments that matter from your camera phone. Since winter is a time to embrace the holidays, I’’ve picked a word each day that we can all capture with our camera phones to help us photo journal these joyous moments. Share them or keep them for yourself, but enjoy the moment!
