Category Archives: 365
I started a 365 photo project again for this year! I am so excited to use my camera again and learn new things, plus capture everyday things. However, I decided to post these pics on Flickr this year. It is much easier to upload them and keep them all together in one spot.
Check them out and follow me here! Hope you enjoy and that I can keep up with it this year 🙂
So as I am sure you have gathered (those of you who still read this… sorry posts have been so sparse lately… life has been crazy, we don’t have great internet to upload pics, and when Liddy sleeps I usually don’t have the energy or will power to blog..) that I quit my 365 from this year…
Going home to the states for two months and being in my first trimester there with a one-year old traveling around and living with people did me in. I slowly stopped taking a picture a day, let alone put them on the computer to edit and then post… Hope to start one again someday, but I have decided to give myself grace and be ok with the fact that this in not the season for it.
Hoping to post pics from Lydia’s 4, yes 4 birthday parties she had to celebrate her first year soon- she is one loved little girl! But for now I will leave you with this pic. I took it on our drive from Dallas to west Texas… I feel like it depicts the drive really well..
“Surely goodness and mercy will pursue me all the days of my life.” Psalm 23:6

December 31: Happy New Years and Cheers to finishing my 365 picture project!
ok so I realize the year is already over… therefore I am way behind. Something about having a 3 month old and being in a different city every week has caused this…
so instead of being stressed out about it (not that I was- ha) I have decided (thanks for the idea Brooke) to take the month of January to finish posting the rest of 2012’s 365 and then start on 2013’s 365 in February (or march)! This way I am not overwhelmed with being super behind and I can still do another 365 this year without feeling behind already. I hope to not let myself get so behind next year… but if I do I am going to give myself grace & continue to enjoy growing in photography & taking random pics of my sweet pea & our everyday life.

December 14: meeting Autie Aub for the first time
December 15: gorgeous mountains + sunset+ snow + adobe houses = home sweet home
still catching up…
I am trying out a new photo editing program (Adobe Lightroom) and I am really enjoying it! I know there is so much more I can do with it, but I want to catch up with my 365 for 2012 before 2013 starts.. maybe for my 365 for 2013 I will work on my editing skills?… anyway, its been fun to have a nicer program to edit pics in. Enjoy! Slowly, but surely I will catch up!
