(Some of my favorite photos from the year.)
I've never been one to get sappy over losing an old year and starting a new one. I like to remember the memories from times past, but the anticipation of a new year excites me to no end.
began seriously thinking about my future, Ethiopia left its mark on my heart, and I got serious (and not so serious) about photography. I broke and dislocated my toe - my first broken bone. I had an almost perfect summer with days spent at the lake. I promised to never stop blogging in one way or another. And finally, The Four became forever ours.
1 year, 220 posts, 240 followers, and 1,503 comments later, this little blog of mine has become something I love. This blog itself has changed me and taught me things.
I don't like to make promises I can't keep. And let's face it - in six months time, I forget any resolutions I make. This year, my one goal for this year will be to live thankfully. I want to live and count my blessings every.single.day. There are so many and I don't ever want to forget them.
Happy New Year, and may your 2012 be blessed.
