my failed 365

 I guess technically I failed at my 365...taking a picture a day for a full year.  I tried, I tried really hard.  But once the craziness of the fall season hit, it all went down hill.  Everything really went down hill this fall, cleaning, laundry, paying bills...it was rough.  Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have it any other way and feel beyond blessed that I was so busy, just kinda sorta wish that life didn't get so messy.  

So my 365 was probably more like a 320 or so...but to me it was a success and even though I didn't finish I am so glad I did it, I learned so much this year, and have so many amazing images of my family.  SO many, that I can't even pick which ones to print.   Last year I felt obligated to pick up my camera everyday, most days I loved it, I truly love taking pictures, but some days it just got old.  Those really messy chaotic days I just didn't want too it, but I did.  And now, it is just habit and I love that it comes natural that I pick up my camera at home, no matter what we are doing, the simple moments  are sometimes my favorite.  Playing games, snuggling with the dog...cooking.   So even now my 365 was a failure, to me it was a success.  I am not disappointed at all that I didn't finish, I do know now, that maybe its a little more than I can handle, but maybe one day, I will tackle this project again.  Until, now I will just continue taking pictures almost everyday.
