Happy New Year

Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday season.
Ours was calm and peaceful and simple.
It was wonderful.
 
 
My parents were with us for Christmas + a couple of days beforehand and after.
It was unplanned and it was lovely.
 
 
New Year's eve was spent in front of the fire
with good food, delicious cake and a movie.
 
 
Goodbye 2012.
It was a really great year for me in many ways.
My heart and soul have grown so much this past year.
I feel I am a much better person than I was a year ago.
{not that I don't have so much more growing to do}
 
And...
I finally finished a 365 project!
Though I did cheat.  But I have zero guilt over it!
There were 366 days last year and I took way more photos than that,
so I have no qualms that I added in more than 31 photos for December
so that I could finish the project.
{I probably couldn't have done it however, if it weren't for my phone and the Picfx app}
 
{the heart in the middle photo was created by the wonderful Robin Thomas}
 
I got to looking at all my photos for 2012 and found some interesting {to me} data.
Out of my 366 photos, one will find:
-a dog within 103 photos
-57 beverages {30 are coffee & 10 are alcohol}
-32 photos have something I've created in them {not including my mancub}
-I have 25 photos with my feet in them
-12 are sunrises
and
-4 have at least one taxidermied animal in them
{5 if you include the cover of Jenny Lawson's book}
 
hmmm...
I wonder what that says about me....

Happy New Year to you! We had a peaceful and fairly unstressful holiday season. I love the expressions on the dogs' faces...Our dogs hate being decorated!

Happy New Year to you, Alisa. I love your photos and hope you continue to post them. They make me smile.

Happy New Year, Alisa. Like you, our holiday was mostly low-key. Your photo analysis is fascinating. I'm sure someone has some deep insights into what it all might mean.

You did it? Your photographs are wonderful. I also really dig that you counted up the themes. I like keeping score.

Yes I do...
