2016 Monthly Photo Project || December

Oh, 2016.

I loved you, I hated you.

You made me laugh, you made me cry.

You threw me curve balls, but I don’t play baseball so that wasn’t very fair.

You gave me hard choices, but in making hard decisions, I remembered my strength.

I accomplished things that made me happy. And proud.

I took my first Milky Way shot.

I went to Iceland.

I saw hundreds of dolphins swimming in the wild.

I pushed my photographic boundaries.

I finished my seventh year of teaching with an award from Yolo County.

And I finally let go so I could move forward with my life.

Oh, how free it feels!

2017, I hope you’re a good one. It’s onward and upward from here.

  1. Happy New Year Patty!! You had a bitter sweet 2016 but 2017 is going to be your year!! You are such a beautiful person inside and out and feel lucky to have you as a friend who has photographed my special moments in 2016!! I can’t wait to watch your year be memorable 😍 Xoxoxox

  2. LOVE the baby photo and your ode to 2016, a great way of summing a up a year, if you do that every year, you would have a quick “snap-poem” smart! Happy new year Patty and thanks for stopping by my blog even if I’ve been a very inconsistent and bad blogging buddy…Poli
