In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
I was filled with emotion as I watched the inauguration activities on television today. I truly believe Barack Obama will be a great president and I'm excited that he is striving to unite our nation. I was sad while watching the ceremonies, missing my mom, who would have been a huge Obama supporter. I was also sad that I wasn't in a classroom with students as history was being made today.
