Photos :: 365 (December 23 - 31)

357/365 :: My mom's tree. She has tons of 'Here Comes Santa Claus' decorations. I used to love taking them out of the box at Christmas time and seeing what year each one was from.
358/365 :: A beautiful ornament for Milo from one of my friends.
359/365 :: Milo's first Christmas! I like his, "what the heck is going on here" face.
360/365 :: Ivan and I have been juicing a lot lately. This carrot apple juice is my favourite.
361/365 :: After a long day in the car on the way to Ohio we were treated to a beautiful sunset.
362/365 :: Leaf is the sweetest kitty ever. He looooooved Milo.
363/365 :: The colour in this photo is pretty awful...but look how cute!!
364/365 :: A bit of snow on our way back home. We had a great visit with our friends and we miss them already!
365/365 :: I did it!!
Happy New Year!! I am sneaking in quickly while cleaning the house to bring you the final installment of my 2013 365 Project. I really loved doing this project and I think the thing that made it most enjoyable was the no-pressure approach I took to the quality of the photos. In the past I had the idea that every photo needed to be something special but with this photo a day I really just wanted to capture a simple snapshot of each day of 2013.

I am continuing my photo a day project into 2014 with one little change. On the first day of the month I want to take a photo of something that says the name of that month. Pretty simple, I think I can remember that. I like the idea of having little markers throughout and I'm excited to use some of my month glasses as photos!

Are any of you planning any special projects for 2014? I have a few more simple things that I'm thinking of doing but I'll think about it and tell you more later. I hope you all had a safe and happy new year. Thank you for sticking around with me over here; I am looking forward to getting in a bit more blogging in 2014!

  7. I've decided to do a 365 photo project this year. As it is, my blog ( is mainly photos, but since getting a job in October, I haven't had much time to go out and shoot for hours at a time. I'm hoping this project will help encourage me to take one or two pictures a day to still get my photo fix in.

  12. Hurray! Not even gonna lie, I love the photo of you on the last day celebrating... the most!

  13. SO proud of you for finishing your 365 project! You made it girl! -- I started one last year and only made it to mid-March, but I enjoy looking at them so much I've decided to start again this year. I don't have a blog to share them, but I'll send a link if you want to see. I think I might just do Flickr (unless you have a better suggestion!). --- I adore seeing Milo and you guys as a family, the kitty babies and just around the house. When looking at my pictures, I found I really enjoy seeing the snapshots of little random things I was doing more than something that just made a pretty picture (as you said too.) -- Happy New Year! (Sorry this was so long, haha!)
