I can’t believe I made it one year – 365 days of photos! It was much harder than I thought but for different reasons that I had imagined. Some days were easy, a birthday or special event, a celebration or just taking pictures of a beautiful day outdoors. Some days I had to get creative and search out something interesting to shoot a photo of, or just be creative trying to snap a candid shot of someone in my life. On some days I was just lazy and posted a lame photo – sorry! And some days were not so great and I had to struggle to find something positive to post as to not dwell on that bad day.
All in all this was a fun, insightful experience and I what I love most about it is that I find myself searching out the best part of my day on a subconscious level just to have something positive to end the day on. And although I am not going to continue with a daily photo, I still plan on chronicling all the fabulous adventures ahead for my family, my friends and myself.
So for now, here are some of the highlights from the last 365 days of my life – enjoy! 🙂
As we were heading to dinner to celebrate Zach’s latest grades (go Zach!!) we saw our favorite former neighbor and invited her and her entourage to join us for dinner. Unfortunately this was after my Zumba class and in my post-workout stupor I didn’t think about taking a photo until long after dinner!
My wonderfully talented cousin “V” made an amazing dinner for the whole family. She cooked my Dad’s favorite dish – Arroz con Pollo along with a southern Bread Pudding with Rum sauce – it was A M A Z I N G!!! And as a special treat to celebrate our engagement – white chocolate dipped strawberries! 🙂
A few months ago we booked a hotel for Valentines night in the French Quarter so it was perfect mini-vacation within a vacation! When we checked in Rich told them we were just engaged so the hotel upgraded our room to a great two story suite!! We spent the next 24 hours acting like lovesick kids and eating and drinking our way through the French Quarter. So much fun!
