I have been loving seeing all of the J'adore June posts so far!  Thank you so much to everyone who has joined in, Jordyn and I are so happy about the great response we've gotten and have been enjoying checking #JadoreJune every day.  As I promised yesterday, today I have all of my favorite posts from the first nine days of the photo a day challenge.

Day 1: J'adore...
I love this picture of Claudia showing off the beautiful bracelet she got from her college bestie.  The bracelet is adorable and even more special because her bestie is going to a different school next year.  I can definitely see why she adores it! Also not to sound crazy, but Claudia is my newest blogger girl crush; when I saw this post (her first for J'adore June) I checked out her blog and  now I love it and her - Claudia we need to be friends!

Day 2: Foodie
My favorite post from Day 2 was one that my blogger bestie/Co-Host Jordyn posted.  I know we're not supposed to play with our food, but I think arranging it for an artsy Instagram pic is an exception to that rule.  This picture is as sweet as those raspberries!

Day 3: Today
I think that Whitney has some of the cutest 'Thank You' cards I've seen.  I have been loving all things watercolors lately and these are so pretty!  I am also really big on handwritten 'Thank You' notes and it always makes me happy when I see someone writing them.  It's even better that Whitney was writing these as 'Thank You'/'Farewell' cards to the people at her school since she will be somewhere else next year, I'm sure everyone loved them!

Day 4: #tbt
This throwback picture that Annaliese posted from when she was in the UK for Christmas 2013 gives me serious wanderlust.  The fact that she posted it because she is getting ready to leave to in a few days to study abroad in France is making me super jealous!  I can't wait to see what else she posts during her latest adventure.

Day 5: Sweet Treat
It made my day when I saw Megan's unique take on Sweet Treat!  Her thinking was so out of the box and this really stood out to me; the fact that the bag is Kate Spade might have helped a little too ;). Posts like this are what I love about an Instagram photo challenge, everyone gets to individualize it and show themselves through their posts. 

Day 6: Best Friend
Allison posted this sweet shot of her and her man for Saturday's picture.  I think that is so great that they're not only dating, but are best friends too.  The two of them make such a cute couple and are also quite a stylish pair!

Day 7: Selfie Sunday
Amyée's post for Selfie Sunday made me crave some time outside!  It was the perfect day to enjoy the sunshine (with some chic sunnies) just like Amyée said in her photo caption.  Also I need to ask her about her skincare regimen, her skin is seriously flawless and glowing.

Day 8: Blooms
Seeing all the blooms on Monday was a great way to get even more excited for summer.  Helene had to stop in the middle of the road to get this shot, but I think it was well worth it!  The beauty of wildflowers always remind me just how gorgeous nature can be.

Day 9: Quote it
Jessie's quote that she posted yesterday was an amazing reminder to live in the moment.  I think that sometimes we all get caught up in what we want to happen or what we think went wrong instead of living in the now and appreciating what we do have.  All of the posts from Quote made yesterday a very inspirational day.

I cannot wait to see what you all have in store for the rest of the month!  I'll be sharing more of my favorites from the challenge here again next week.  If you haven't participated in the J'adore June yet it's not too late to join the party!  All of the information for the challenge is here and you can check out everyone's posts for yourself here.  Also make sure to follow Jordyn (@fairyprincessjord) and me (@crumbsandcurls) on Instagram and to keep tagging your pictures with #JadoreJune, we will be following back and checking out all of your posts.  I hope to keep seeing all the lovelies who have been participating and a few new faces too!  Thank you again for joining us, we've been having a blast with this!
