Happy New Year!

I realize this is a bit late - but I hope that all of you have celebrated a marvelous start to 2012!

There are many changes taking place in my life right now - which is one of the primary reasons I have been absent for much of the month of December.  I have to be careful that I do not divulge information too early for fear that certain readers might find out information prematurely.  I promise to catch up very soon.

In the meantime, I will take this time to publicly announce (rather scary....) that I am going to take part in the 365 project.  For those that might be unfamiliar with this concept, I will try to take a photograph a day in order to document a year in my life.  One of my New Year's resolutions is to learn to slow down and appreciate life around me, and I think this might help me to accomplish that goal.  So I am going to give it try - and if perchance I do not succeed, I will at least hope to take more pictures in 2012 than I did in 2011.

In honor of this new challenge I am posting the photograph of the day.  We babysat our granddaughter last night while my eldest and her husband attended a few parties.  This morning she entertained herself by reading a couple of books (following in her Ollie's footsteps????) and I tried to take a few photos.  She is quite enthralled with the camera, however, so every time she heard the shutter click she stopped reading and started to crawl towards me.  This was the best picture of the bunch.

I must go and attend to the black-eyed peas and cornbread - I figure any superstition that promises a year of good luck is worth my participation - but I hope to be back soon and far more regularly in the days and weeks and months ahead.

What a gorgeous child - she has that sparkle in her eye! I love the idea of taking a photo a day to journal your life during one year. I'll look forward to seeing what you "shoot".

Oh my! That baby is precious--are you not totally in love with her? I can't believe how fast she has grown up. Our parent prize is definitely becoming grandparents! I hope your changes are good and look forward to hearing all about them!

Oh, that little bunny is getting big:) What a sweetheart! Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to a lovely one for all of us!

I'm excited about this project! I always like pictures. And that baby has gotten all big! When did that happen???

Trish said...

She is SO beautiful!! Makes me wish that I lived closer to your daughter so our daughters could be playmates.

But yes, pictures with the babes are tough! Mine doesn't get that I'm behind the camera and even at 8 months I can't get a good smile. Ha!

Love the new look of your blog. Happy new year Molly!

Your granddaughter is adorable, Molly. Isn't it the best of fun?

Our Kezzie won't hold still and has always been in tune with the sound it makes as the lens comes out. I've learned to just keep clicking away, hoping to get one or two good shots out of 15 or so! Goodnight Moon is a favorite.

Happy New Year!

Michelle Shannon said...

What a cutie!! And GOODNIGHT MOON is still one of my favorite kids' books of all time.

Happy 2012!

Anna said...

What a cute picture! Happy new year!

Jenners said...

She is soooo cute!! I've seen quite a few people do the 365 project and I think once you get in the habit, it isn't so bad. It doesn't have to be a perfect photo … just take one!

Hope 2012 is a fantastic year!

Happy New Year Molly. I've seen the 365 project on other blogs and it's always been fun to follow. Good luck to you.
