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.
Today I'm proud to be an American! I watched President Obama speak to the students of our country today. His speech was from the heart, inspiring, and a wonderful opportunity for the young people in America to feel proud. I watched the speech at home and wished I had been in a classroom to share the excitement of the students as they listened to our President speak to them. I know he motivated them to be the best that they can be!
