I am happy just to have survived this year. It's been a really rough emotional year.

2. I Love You
My ever supporting and loving husband.

3. Still Laughing
Aliens have taken over. 
(or maybe it's just decorative pomegranates from my ugly decorative pomegranate tree).

4. Winter Wonderland
My dudes making a snowman.

5. Birthday
My 8 year olds very first party/sleepover. He was beyond thrilled.

6. Friends
Sleepover friends on the trampoline with the water hose.

7. I was inspired...
...when I saw the bottom of this celery.

8. Spring Fever

We were able to spend the week of the fourth with family this past year.

11. A Day in my Life

12. All Smiles

13. Autumn Harvest
The delicious glow of the sun over my fence in fall.

16. Let's Do It Again.
Take selfies with all my boys again.

I think I'm the only person on the planet who loves this shot, but I so do. 
It's my favorite from this past Christmas.

22. My favorite
I have many from this last year, this is just one of them.

23. Don't Ever Change
Dear baby boy, please don't ever lose that being the happiest person in the world
quality that I love so much about you.

24. Just Because...So There!
Another favorite of mine from this year.

25. Hopes and Dreams
I hope and pray to get out of this funk. 
Depression is washing away my life and I dream of the day I feel ... 
somewhat normal and maybe a little joy again.
^ Not too inspiring, I know, but it's where I am.


  1. I'm sorry your year hasn't been all that great. I have suffered a great deal with depression in my life and one of my son's has bipolar disorder. Be sure to take care of yourself! Here's to things looking up in 2012!

  2. I absolutely love that shot for holidays. The composition is perfect! Love your selfie too- you have beautiful eyes.

  3. Your perspective is so so beautiful - I love walking down memory lane with you. A beautiful year and I hope that 2012 is even better!

  4. When I saw the title to this post I knew I'd see a whole bunch of my favorite photos of yours. I love your perspective on life, the raw honestly with which you write here, and your eye through your lens. I wish you a beautiful 2012!

  5. I love your post so much! I am going to follow you. :D

  6. Lovely selfies, and beautiful boys. Hope the new year is better for you.

  7. You have a wonderful collection of photos here. You take such awesome shots of your kids. I love the one of the little boy in front of the dryer and the one jumping through the spray of water. Great captures!


I am so happy you are here. Your words make my heart so happy.
