in my life




What is it about the last day of the year - of a decade - that makes us want to review? All those lists, the best something or other.. we're leaving shortly for our party in Richmond, and I was putting together a more New Year's Eve-ish post, but I kept finding this one, and that one, as if I've got to include every shot of every person I didn't show you before.




To think that in 2009, among other things, I first started this little blog, and it's grown to the point where.. well I can't say yet, but I've got some exciting partnerships to look forward to in 2010,. All the real life friends who rock my world, and all the generous spirited women - and men - who have appeared in my life simply thru putting up this blog and saying 'this is who I am, this is what I see.'

Not to mention all the wonderful people who I've met and photographed, who have taken that leap of faith to let a total stranger take their photo and put it up on the internet. Some have contacted me, some have become close friends - one even watched our cat while we were away - and some I've never heard from again. But each person touched me in some way, and I hope in turn you've got something from seeing their photos. Even if it's just a smile.

This isn't my New Year's Eve post - that will come up later, after I've shut this baby down - but for now, I just want to say thank you, by playing perhaps my favourite ever song:

thanks for sharing the Beatles song- I always get sentimental New Years Eve- and great music is so much a part of the experience.
Wishing you a every happiness and great success with your blog in 2010.

I will! Once we get to Richmond. I can't get over that you live inRichmond (VA) did you know our childhood home was on Richmond Avenue?

Thank you so much for your lovely comments, Mona, and your support & friendship. Now I'm getting all soppy! Hope you & Tony (& Jesse!) have a wonderful New Year's Eve, and that this year is just brilliant for you in every way. And that we can get together! Somewhere in the world.

Pretty boys! I love their hair.

This is my favorite Beatles song. It literally gives me chills when I hear it. Such a fitting song for Old Year's Night.

Thank you, Jill, for your wonderful blog, and your friendship across the pond. I know one day, we will meet. :) In the meantime, there is Skype.

Happy 2010!! xoxo
