YES! I made it. I finished another year of this project. Whew....It wasn't easy. I lost all interest a little over a month ago. My blog has been neglected.....and I just haven't felt like being here. I'm enjoying Blipfoto very much though. Here is a link to my journal there: http://www.blipfoto.com/Livingandloving
The last theme of the year was: Celebrate
For probably the first time EVER, we were home on Christmas Eve with no company and no place to be. It was a wonderfully relaxing day. My Sugar Bear and I head out to a local State Park to see the holiday lights to celebrate Christmas Eve together. It was such a treat. Sugar Bear took the last photo of me for the year.
After two years of this project, I'd say that it was a success. I have an amazing amount of photos of myself for my Sugar Bear to cherish when she is older. She will be able to look back and remember her mama being there. :) This isn't the end of photos of me, though. It has become a bit of a habit to get shots of me now. I'm grateful for this. I let go of looking perfect in photos...and just allow them to look like me....as I am.
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and I look forward to the New Year.

I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo not ashamed to say that I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooo ready for this challenge to be over with. I really cherish the photos that this project of the past two years has brought about, and I know that my child will be ever so grateful for them in the future, but my creativity, motivation, and enthusiasm for this project is over.
This week's theme was: MERRY
I set up my tripod and used my remote shutter to grab a few shots of my girl and I by our tree the other night. I did some posed.....and them just let it snap a few while be goofed off. I adore this one. It is so US. Sugar is being goofy, and I'm over the moon in love with her.
The last theme for the year is: CELEBRATE

The theme was JOY.
My Christmas tree always brings me great joy. I love looking at the sparkling lights, and all the amazing ornaments I've gathered through out my life. Here is a shot of me looking at my tree. You can see the lights in my eyes.
The theme for next week is: MERRY

I'm limping to the finish this time folks. It's not like to me to give up on a challenge. I'm struggling to find the motivation, but come heck or high water, I'm gonna finish. :)
Week 48 was: LOOK
So look at me......so happy after my first concert in like 20 some years. I went to see the Lumineers.....and it was AMA........to the ZING! woo hoo. You can read what I wrote about the event on my blipfoto journal entry HERE.
Week 49 was: Together
I grabbed this quick shot of my hand holding a little heart my Sugar Bear got in her advent. It is a fun tradition we enjoy together. She is my heart in every sense of the word. LUV HER!
This week is: JOY and I still need to get my shot.
Hoping to find my way through the sadness of today's events in Connecticut to get a JOY shot. My heart is so broken for all the families of those lost. There just isn't enough words.....
