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 attended a cookie exchange with dear friends from the school I retired from. The cookie exchange has become an annual event and the hostess rotates from year to year. This year, Deb was our hostess. In the photo, Deb, who is a special education resource teacher, is giving a big hug to Michele, who has been her teaching assistant for many years. I'm so lucky to have such wonderful friends!
