Happy new year, everyone! I hope 2018 is already off to a good start for you and your families! I decided to come back and do another 365 Project this year. It was good to take a break for a while, and now I’m ready to take on this photo challenge of posting a photo a day for a year. Let’s dive right in!
001 | Monday, Jan 1 ~ This is the first photo I took in 2018! We took it easy and stayed home this year, watched the New Year’s Eve countdown in Times Square on TV, then at actual midnight, Homer and I were all snuggled in his bed for the story portion of his bedtime routine. I paused mid-reading The Hobbit to Homer to wish him a happy new year and kiss his soft cheek before he fell fast asleep! Then I left his room, kissed Joe and wished him a happy new year, and took Ashton out for his last potty break of the night. I was surprised by the beautiful full moon! I didn’t even realize it was going to be a full moon. So of course I took a full moon / new year selfie, because why the heck not, right? Maybe I’ll end the year with a selfie, too!
002 | Tuesday, Jan 2 ~ A new year seemed like a good time to start a new journal. And yes, I totally write “Dear Journal” at the start of my new journals (at the very least, the first entry!). It’s something I’ve done since childhood. I like to pretend like I’m writing a friend. I was happy to sit and write in Starbucks while I waited for my new car to be looked over in its Buyers’ Inspection. The CARDIS received a clean bill of health, by the way! An enormous relief, for sure.
004 | Thursday, Jan 4 ~ Here’s a closeup of Ashton! He’s always cute and snuggly, but he has seemed even more snuggly during the winter, of course. He’s like a little heater, and we keep each other warm.
005 | Friday, Jan 5 ~ After a fairly dry period, the rain returned on Friday. It was a light rain that brought some warmer temperatures with it, so it was quite lovely. I really enjoy taking raindrop photos through a window. Or in this case, my windshield of my car! So that’s just what I did!
006 | Saturday, Jan 6 ~ I got my new iPhone lenses in the mail today! I played around with the fisheye lens and got these funny closeups of Joe, Homer, and me!
007 | Sunday, Jan 7 ~ And to round out the week, as my cold symptoms spawned up out of nowhere and I rested on the couch, my little cutey dog once again snuggled into me for cuddles. Ashton is a really sweet dog! I’m so glad I have my little buddy.
Well, there you have it. Not a bad start to 2018 at all. Also I found out the theme for my Catch the Moment group on Facebook was “you!” as in we photographers actually getting in front of the camera. I guess with 3 photos of me in the same week, I nailed that challenge! ha!
I hope you liked the photos, I’ll be back with more next week! Have a good one!
