Twilight LaConner and One Happy Year

Holy blog-o-rama! Hey reader, did you catch all those posts? Wow! There is so much more waiting in the wings, too. The phase I went through where I felt like there was nothing to say on the blog is clearly over, and I'm pretty pleased that you've found that camera, Ali. I want to see some photos of your outfits. Right?

We've been at this for a year now, you know. I meant to commemorate our blogiversary back on April 10th, but, well... I didn't. It's been an amazing year. In the beginning I didn't even have a camera, and of course I had no idea that I would be going to the ranch, quitting my job, or that I would knit more than twenty pairs of socks in a year. Really, that's just crazy.

Over the course of the year, I've become a slave to the camera. I always have one with me, even if it's just my phone, and I often take over a hundred photos in just a few days. As you can see from the photo above, I've gotten pretty comfortable taking random photos, and am always snapping things that appeal to me, even if I am not quite sure why they appeal - like the spooky old house with the light in the window that looks like fire.

I'm also a slave to adventure now. Seriously! I think I've said this before, but having a blog really makes you think about what you are doing with your days. Almost every day for the past year, I've written a little something about my life. And not the journal-y kind of stuff I wrote as a teenager, full of self-doubt, or worry about money or talk about boys. The writing on the blog has all been an attempt to find something I wanted to tell you about, something fun or pretty or true.

That definitely helped me entertain myself more thoroughly over the last 300-something days, I hope sometimes it did the same for you.
