2011: A year in photos

As predicted, it really is hard to post a year in photos post when you don't really take any pictures during the year. This is the first year that I didn't participate in a daily photo project and it shows. I went from taking a photo a day to almost none for the year.

But, that's okay. We didn't really do anything to take pictures of. This past year found us mostly at home. With me taking non-stop classes, there really wasn't much we could do. So, we watched a lot of Netflix and I did a lot of studying.

The beginning of January was a sad one. A mass shooting is not what one wants to have happen in their hometown.

The in-laws sent me flowers for my birthday. A very nice surprise.

Teeny tiny green leaves started to grow on our tree (So happy we didn't kill it) and we finally found a painting for our wall, that we both loved.

Lots and lots of studying (with only 5-weeks to finish up a 15-week course).  And the only photo I took the entire month, was this one, of my cat.

The husband made yummy meals and creatures have been exploring the backyard.

My parents celebrated 50-years of marriage.

The husband's brother came for a visit.


I scrapped for the first time since 2009 and the backyard was invaded.

Skies were stormy and I started work on a yarny Christmas present.

Unseasonably warm days (some in the 90's) and I did a lot of shredding. Paper clutter, be gone!

We celebrated Thanksgiving with family and then had one of our very own.

Christmas was very low key this year, and at the end of the month, the year ended on a lazy note.


  1. Considering you didn't really take any photos this year you've come up with some great results. An interesting collection to look back on 2011

  2. Love, love, love the pictures you did take! Great job. I enjoy seeing your photography.

  3. Y'know, sometimes, less is more. Great photos as always. And you and your hubby are so cute. :)
