Happy New Year!!
2011 was an incredible year for us. We learned so much, we accomplished many goals, we grew as photographers and as a couple, we laughed, we loved, we traveled, and we made some absolutely amazing new friends along the way. There is no doubt that 2012 is going to be the best year that we’ve ever, ever had, and just thinking about all we have to look forward to makes us so insanely happy. We have so much to be thankful for…it’s kind of mind-blowing. :)
We take a lot of quick snaps with our phone cameras (since we always have them on us), and at the end of the year, I back them all up to make room on our phones for another year’s worth of images. This year, I thought it would be cool to share them, so I stitched them all together into these giant collages for your viewing pleasure. There’s a ridiculous amount of photos of our cats and dog, but that’s because they are an enormous part of our lives and we love them to bits. We’re both really into gardening, so the gardens are pretty well represented here, too, as are our many, many nature hikes, visits with family and friends, and yummy treats. I have had three different phones since the beginning of 2011, starting with a Blackberry and ending with an iPhone 4s (who goes through 3 phones in a year?! I knooooooow, right?!?!), so please excuse the less than perfect quality of some of these shots. The people who appear in these photos are all very dear to us – our parents and grandparents, our nieces and nephews, our siblings, and some of our closest friends. In this case, it’s all about the content. So, enjoy a look into what our lives consist of in the super rare moments that we are not working!
