Last year was a great year! I have many things to be grateful for in my life, most notably my Dear Sweet Wife, our lovely two boys, and the rest of our family and friends.
2011 was a tremendous year of growth and wonderful experiences for us all.
Our older son entered first grade and took on new interests such as tennis, piano, and even film photography (no influence there, ahem).
Our 3-year-old graduated to solo swimming lessons, conquered potty training, and also took some photos with our cameras (with our permission or not!).
And somewhere in between my DSW and I managed to squeeze in some date nights, going out to dinner in restaurants without crayons or seeing movies that weren’t G rated.
Photographically speaking for me 2011 wasn’t a bad year either. I rediscovered my love of film photography and started playing around with vintage film cameras and new formats such as instant pack film.
This blog was a big step for me, to encourage myself to both keep shooting as well as write about my experiences. In some ways I feel like I am still just getting started, while in others I feel I have achieved a lot in my first posts.
But enough about last year… it is time to look forward to this new year 2012! I am excited about what it may have in store for me and my family, and will share my resolutions soon.
