Another door opens....

Isn’t that how the saying goes? When one door closes another one opens? Well the door on 2010 is about to close and the door to 2011 is about to be flung wide open! This year truly did fly by, as I’m in the process of making photo book of my family’s year, it seems like we just experienced those things yesterday!

Just look how much my boys have changed in just the course of a year

 It’s amazing when you look back and compare the change side by side!
My boys aren’t the only ones that have grown this year, I have too! It was at the beginning of 2010 when I decided to dive back into the world of photography and explore my passion! I have learned so much this year and with every month that passes by come closer and closer to the person I want to be, creatively at least.

I guess the word that best fits for 2010 is Growth...

The growth in my life has been good, I have succeeded and failed and grown from it all! Seeing my boys physically grow and their personalities sprout has been rewarding. But with all things that grow, when left untamed it can quickly become overgrown and wild! So, my word for 2011 is FOCUS!

Adding more focus to my creativity, giving it direction. Helping my boys focus on learning and developing their minds and manners as we delve into the world of homeschooling! More focus on completing task and goals. More focus on family and getting distractions out of the way. More focus on getting healthy!

As I said in my previous post, I am planning on attempting another 365 project or similar photo project, I sort of lost focus on it when life started getting crazy! This year, I’d like to complete it, I also have another project I would like to work on, but I’ll save discussion of it for a later date, but I am super excited about it! I did however complete half of my 365 for 2010. Here are a few of my favorites from my first attempt at 365...150??

I hope you all have a great year and wish you the best in achieving your New Year’s goals!


P.S. I've linked this post up with Meagan over at Madelinebea for her 365 check-in


  1. you take awesome photos. That carousel (?) is jaw-dropping gorgeous. And the flower head gone to seed. All of them. They are studies in beauty. I'm on a 365 journey too. Though I've learned so much, I'm really just beginning as there's a long long way to go on this journey. I hope you continue taking lots of photos because they're an inspiration.
    I'm also hoping the coming year brings you lots and lots of joy, light, and love. I almost forgot - the change in your sons is amazing, and they so look like you!

  2. Great collection! Good luck with 2011, focus is a toughy - I lose it all the time! Happy New Year!

  7. I'm visiting from the 365 day project. What a great idea, putting the photos of the boys side by side. It's such a cliché but change is the only constant. Happy New Year!
