reflecting

New Year's always makes me a bit nostalgic.  In my reflecting,  I went through my project 365 photos and chose just one photo for each month.  This was harder than I thought it would be....I really had a tough time narrowing it down to 12 images.  But when I think about it, it's good that it was so tricky to pick one per month, because it means life here under the oaks is full and overflowing.  It was fun to look back over the year and see all the reminders of God's goodness during the last 365 days.  Here's my snap shot of 2010:

So...goodbye 2010...hello 2011!  It's going to be a great year....it's already full of possiblities.  I hope that your new year is so overflowing with blessings that they can't be contained in 12 photos either!  Happy New Year to you my friends!

What a wonderful collection of photos! I can't believe you were able to choose just one (you take so many perfect photos)!!

I'll be using January to repeat last year's crafting goodness (love that table full of completed projects), wish I could do it with YOU!

Anticipating wonderful blessings, conquerable challenges, and joyful moments walking alongside you this year!! Much love and hugs to you!!

Lovely photos! For the last 2 years I have thought about trying the 365 photos and have failed miserably.....maybe this year??

Great photos for the year! I keep thinking about doing the photo a day, but somehow I already messed up today by going to my MIL for pork and sauerkraut with family and never even taking my camera out once. Oh well :) Happy New Year!

Beautiful images from 2010!!! We are all so truly blessed. It is hard to choose just 12 images from the last year. I think your choices are excellent!! :)
