Since this is my first year blogging, I decided to start a tradition for New Year's. I will do a review in pictures. Some of them are from my DSLR, some are from my phone. Next year, I will try and get more from my DSLR.
Join in on the fun with Ashley!
I am most proud of finding my voice not only here on the blog but in real life. And also for having the courage to open my store and work for myself.
I Love You
Dakota, you are my everything. Thank you for being my better half for the past 4 years.
Loki has a fascination with bags. No matter if it is plastic or paper, or even if it is a box, he has to get in it.
This particular time happened to come at a time where he was already crazy. He ended up tearing the bag apart.
We don't get snow here (stupid California!) but this picture is still pretty winter-y. Is it bad I already miss Christmas?
For my 21st birthday, Dakota brought this home for me. In case you are wondering, my birthday is the 21st of February, so I usually get combined gifts with Valentine's Day. This was one of my favorite presents ever.
Abigail is the best friend I could ever ask for. And plus, Dakota said I had to put her picture up here once in a while if I am going to show his picture. :)
I Was Inspired…
Watching Nana do her artwork. Crazy woman. Sitting on the floor and what not.
In 2012, April showers brought some pretty flowers.
Travel or Vacation
I'm glad that I got to go back up to the mountains with Dakota this year. I love the photography opportunities. As well as spending time with my love, away from technology and just spending time with him.
I love when our tree grows back every year. It is the sign that warm weather is coming.
A Day In My Life
Computer screens, O&Ms, oh my.
Two of my favorite people. Smiling and laughing, as usual.
You can tell it is fall when our tree is trimmed. It looks so pitiful.
Family or Home
When I am home, Loki is usually with me. He is incredibly strange. Cats aren't usually so dependent.
Went to a beautiful wedding with Abigail. Sat next to one of my favorite coworkers. There was much fun to be had.
Let’s Do It Again…
Can we go to the mountains again?
I Miss You
It is almost unexplainable how much I miss these two. It's been over ten years since I've seen either. I miss you guys so much.
I love this thing. I need to figure out how to use it.
I was so happy to see Julia graduate. She left for New York shortly thereafter. But she is back with us now!
One of my favorite decorations from Christmas.
Isn't he the cutest kitten ever? I miss when he would let me just take pictures of him. And just lay there. Now he knows when I pull the camera out and he stops being crazy. Silly cat.
Don’t Ever Change
Loki, you are weird. And crazy. But you certainly make our life interesting.
Just Because…So There!
How could I not share this guy?
Hopes and Dreams
Next year, I want to take more photos like this. I want to go out with the intention of taking amazing pictures. I want to take pictures that I will hang on my wall. I am thinking of doing a 365, or even a Project 52. I may do Project 52, just so that I know I will finish. :)
But my goal is to further my craft. Photography, design, and blogging.
I hope you all have a GREAT New Year's Eve! I will try and be back tomorrow with some of my resolutions and goals for next year.
