2011 in pictures

I took a lot of photos of Josiah YeJoon in 2011. 

This morning I spent some time browsing the memories. I big fat heart so many of the photos and narrowing down my very favorites is just plain hard for me.

2011 was truly a wonderful, delightful year. 

I've jumped on the Take a Photo a Day/Project 365 train and it's been smooth sailing so far {as in, I'm 5 for 5. Woot! ;)}. I'm being forced to quickly pick my favorite of the day and I'm giddy at the thought of making them all into a pretty little book of memory packed goodness at the end of this year. So on the last day of each month look for that months' pictures.This is going to be good, y'all! 

Speaking of good. It's 10:15am and SiGuy and I are eating Cuties oranges in our pajamas. The sun is shining bright and the temp has soared to 43 degrees. It's a beautiful Friday! Enjoy it, friends.
