My Year In Photos.

#24: "Just because... so THERE!" ;)

Thanks Ashley Sisk for hosting this fab trip down memory lane!!!
                  #1. "Me!"  Pretty self-explanatory.

#2: "I Love You."  Quite simply, the words I had written under this photo on facebook said, "The reason my heart beats."

#3 "Still Laughing." -Maeve & my lipstick.  As messy as she gets, as messy as the floor/walls/tables,etc. get, I still laugh when she puts on "prettifulls."

#4 "Winter Wonderland"

#5 "Birthday" : This was the birthday that never ended.  :)

#6: "Friends"- I was going to post a picture of my friends and I, but decided that this sums up the word "friends" pretty well.  Maeve and Reyna have developed the sweetest friendship, and in return the mommas (Les & I) have become amazing friends as well.  Cheers to friends, indeed!

#7: "Inspired."  I love the rain.  I remember this day so well- the rain was hitting the windows and I loved the texture it was creating. 

#8 "Spring Fever"- this was one of our first, really nice spring days.  It was muddy and damp, the grass was coming in so green and nice.
#9: travel- we've been traveling machines this year...
#10: "Summer Days."  Carefree. Sunshine. Smiles. Long Detroit weekends.
"a day in my life" :)  This picture never ceases to make me smile... these are my loves!
#12 :"All Smiles"  He's such a jolly old man :) 
#13: "Autumn Harvest."  Apples are a fave around our house.  Especially fresh picked, orchard apples, like this one :)
#14: "Family."
#15: "Celebrate."  Up in Grand Haven, celebrating the amazing men and women who serve our country.
The Paper Mama
#16:"Lets Do It Again... Soon!" -Disney... need I say more?
#17: "I Miss You!"  ...Ang... I miss you!  Even though you're a crazy, busy doctor, I have faith that we will see each other again soon :)  You're my FFF.
#18. "beautiful."  little hands & a guitar, beautiful, right?

#19 "dress up."- Halloween 2010, best Halloween to date!  Mama the cat, is pulling Henry the dragon and Maeve the princess.

#20: "macro"- sweet tea in a cyan tinted glass. i love :)
#21 "holidays." ... wish I had a Christmas picture to share, but I don't.  Needless to say, Easter is a pretty swell holiday too. 
#22: "my fave."  This was the hardest to pick, and I'm still not 100% sure this is my fave.  But it's definitely up there.  Not because of the picture itself, but because of the day.  I remember that day so well- it was an unseasonably warm day.  Maeve sat and got her face painted and I teared up- she is officially old enough to SIT and have her face painted.  :(
#23: "Don't Ever Change."  I'd give anything to keep my kids little forever.  
#24: "Just because... so THERE!" ;)

#25: "Hopes & Dreams"- all I could ask for in 2011, is a safe journey to be had by all.

Picture #15 is an entry into "The Paper Mama's" weekly photo challenge. The theme is "sPaRkLy!"

Picture #24 is an entry into "I Heart Faces" contest. The theme over there, is "Best face of 2010." Uhhh, with over 300 entries it's quite the long shot, but if you get a chance, head on over and cast a vote! :) Please?? :)
