happy 2011!

2010 was a whirlwind of a year.  I lived in the Dominican Republic, Colorado and Boston.  Besides traveling all around the DR, I went to Japan, Philadelphia (twice), San Diego, Seattle (twice), Nashville, Chattanooga, Austin (twice) and drove from Denver to Boston. I cooked, knitted, and took pictures.  A year ago, my new year's goals were:

  • To not let a full month go by without posting on the blog.  Accomplished! (though I'm still not quite as regular as I would like to be)
  • To read lots of books. Accomplished!  I read 42 books this year.
  • To knit a pair of socks that fit.  Accomplished!  (Although I didn't use the two circular needle technique, I made a pair and gave them to my mom for Christmas)
  • To take a picture every day. Accomplished!  This was a huge undertaking, but I love going back and reviewing my year in pictures. It challenged me to look at my days in a new way.  I love how it captures my travels, the mundane, the exciting, the little things and the big things.  I'm planning to print the photos and put them together in a scrapbook.  I'm still on the fence about whether I'm going to do this again in 2011.  I loved the project, but I might be a little burned out on it.  In July, I posted my favorite photos from the first six months.  My full 365 days of photos are on Flickr. Below are my favorite pics from July - December.
