2011 Photo Reflect

I saw this little idea over at The Paper Mama and thought I would give it a go. Since most of this year was spent off the blog I thought it might be a good idea to throw in some photos that would not have been posted about. Here goes!
Me! – picture of yourself (you don’t have to show your face). What are you most proud of accomplishing in 2011?

I am most proud of giving birth to my beautiful son and learning how to mother. It has been an incredible challenge and I am learning so much everyday.

I Love You – picture of your husband, boyfriend, children, pets, etc.

Still Laughing… – a moment you’re still laughing about now…tell us a story. Dressing up Bodhi has been a thing of ours for a while. This hipster scarf took the cake that day and he wore that thing for a couple of days. He had a run in the yard at our old house so I can only imagine what the people walking by thought of the dog in the dorky scarf…

Winter Wonderland – a picture that reflects Winter. I can’t even believe this view. It is from the top floor of our old house at about 6am. I woke up and it looked like the hallway was on fire because of that light. I went out to look and it was so cold the ocean was steaming and that red sunrise made it look as though the sea were in flames. I opened the window and got this amazing shot.

Birthday – share a birthday picture (your own or someone you love). This was my sister Katie’s cinnamon roll birthday ‘cake’. She turned 25 this year! Also, in this picture I am a few days pregnant and I did not know it!

Friends – a picture with friends (this could be your friends or your children with their friends). My dear friend Ashley’s Bachelorette!

I Was Inspired… – could be a picture of your inspiration (person or thing), or inspired by…: I was truly inspired by my pregnancy. I ended up taking a photo every week and getting more and more into figuring out the monolith that is Photoshop. It was pretty amazing watching my body transform and create such a beautiful little being.

Spring Fever – a picture that reflects Spring. My best friend started selling cupcakes in the City Market and these were some of her delicious Easter cupcakes!

Travel or Vacation – a picture taken on vacation or on a recent travel experience…even if it was only a few miles away. We went on an AMAZING 13 day vacation to Sarasota, Florida in April with Greg’s whole family.This is Greg and our niece on the beach in front of our condo.

Summer Days – a picture that reflects Summer. Chimes on the deck…

A Day In My Life – a picture of a typical day in your life. Sweats and self portraits haha

All Smiles – a picture that makes you smile or of smiling faces.My step brother and his daughter dancing at his wedding!

Autumn Harvest – a picture that reflects Autumn/Fall. Beach walk with Bodhi in October.

Family or Home – a picture of your family or a picture that represents family/home for you.My favorite place….haaaa

Celebrate! – a picture that reflects a celebration: Yay Neil is born!!

Let’s Do It Again… – a picture of something you’d like to do again soon…nuff said….

I Miss You – a picture of someone or something you really miss. She is still here right now but I missed her a lot this year!

Beautiful – a picture of someone or something you find beautiful. My gorgeous son.

Macro – share your favorite macro or close-up image.

Holidays – a picture from the Holiday of your choice. Best present ever.

My Favorite – share your favorite picture or memory from 2011. My mornings are filled with cooing and staring at this baby. This is from one of our early morns together.

Don’t Ever Change – something you love about yourself, someone, or something that you never want to change. I never want this face to lose that gorgeous happiness…

Just Because…So There! – share any picture(s) that you really want to share, but doesn’t fit in any other category.

Hopes and Dreams – share what you hope to come or dream for 2012. Feel free to share an image of your choice. I want to continue to enjoy the new family dynamic and grow creatively through my blog and photos this year! Here’s to keeping up with our (pin)trests and enjoying those closest to us!

This was so fun! I found some photos I had totally forgotten about! Linking up with zee Paper Mama and her year in review. Thanks for the inspiration!
