It’s hard to believe that I started this a year ago and I managed to keep with it. It definitely wasn’t easy – sometimes I would be frantically trying to find something to take a picture of at 11 because I had forgot to during the day. I hope this year is as much fun as the first one; it can only get better from here on out. 🙂
Year ONE here and here.
