Weekly Photo Challenge: Enveloped

This little guy loves to be enveloped in his favorite blanket. If he’s not enveloped in it, it’s certainly not far behind…a little boy and a his blanket, a pretty happy place indeed.

all wrapped up

Snug as a bug, he’s perfectly content in his happy place!

This is my contribution for this week’s photo challenge, enveloped. You might want to take a look at what other people have contributed by going here, or better yet, join in the fun and share a photo of your own interpretation of the challenge.
