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.
It is fun to take out special serving dishes during the holidays. My china cabinet stores many family heirlooms, like this crystal bowl that was passed down by one of our grandmothers. The stored keepsakes bring back such happy memories, I wonder why we don't use take them out more often.
