My Year In Pictures: December Week 1

Now that we’re into December I can officially start the end-of-project countdown!  After two years of taking and posting daily photos it’s time to try something new and even though I’ve learned a lot about social media accounts and refined my view of the quiet little moments that bring beauty to our days I’ve also been overwhelmed with the pace of keeping up with this commitment online and in real life.  I’ve been thinking a lot about the aspects of blogging and posting that I truly enjoy and being honest about the things I’ve missed by being spread so thin so with these points in mind I’m working toward a new workflow and focus that should make all of us happy.   After this weekly wrap up post I’ll write 9 more to get us into February and then it’s on to something new.  I’ll share more as we get closer to the end but I’ll tell you now we’ve got more than one change-up in the works – Spring 2017 is going to be great!

My week of photos above is a mix of several small moments.  I wandered around my parent’s garden after Thanksgiving admiring how pretty it still was this deep into Fall and I tried to take a picture of the big Christmas tree in Downtown Seattle but was put off by all of the advertising wrapped around the base so I decided to focus on the ornaments instead of the overall spectacle.  Then we went to get more of my Grandma’s things out of storage and I couldn’t resist falling behind the group to admire the view down this dark hallway.  My last image of the week is of the lovely marble top on this antique washstand from Grandma.  It’s going to fit right into our collection of old and new furniture and John has great plans to set up a pretty holiday bar.  Cheers to the season!

I’ll be back with a new post in a few days but if you don’t want to wait please join us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. If you’d like to learn more about any of the images but you don’t follow me on these accounts please feel free to click here for IG, here for Twitter and here for FB or select a photo from the Instagram previews in my sidebar.  You don’t need an account at either place to view my photos, everyone’s welcome.

  1. Great images, Lisa. I make it a mental challenge to figure out what each image may be before I read the description. Figured out the storage place, a garden or walk, and a Christmas tree. Last one was artistic.

  2. Nice colors! Isn’t it amazing how many things are still blooming so late in the year? We even had roses still appearing. I guess that’s over with this frost.


    1. It’s crazy, lucky you to have roses in bloom! I’ll be sorry to see everything go after the cold snap but am looking on the bright side that maybe we can finally kill some fleas and Finn will have a better summer in 2017. 🙂
