One Year Ago

gold and Black Sun

Happy blog birthday to me. I’ve posted 53 times in the last year, averaging once a week. I started this last year with the intention of it helping me find my voice. I wasn’t sure where it would go. It still feels very nascent, and I’m fine with that. There’s lots of room for me to go where I want. A lot of my focus has been on the 52 Photos Project, which has been really fun – combining my love of photography with my love of language and words.

Today I just wanted to share this photo I took on Christmas Eve (above). The light felt so thick, as if it had heft, and I had no idea when I pointed my camera in this direction that it would capture that honeyed sky.

You can get the idea here:

Thanks for coming along with me on this ride. I’m looking forward to what 2014 will bring!

    Happy blogversary, Jill! I love that photo, and really enjoy your blog, and, more than that, your pace… a calm oasis in the midst of too much frantic busy-ness around us. Congratulations, and I look forward to reading more of your words and seeing more of your pictures in 2014…. xo

      Thank you so much, Rebecca! Thank you for your encouragement, your compliments and most importantly, your friendship.

      I’m glad I can be a calm oasis. You probably won’t be surprised to know you’re not the first person to tell me that!

      Thanks again!

    Happy BlogBirthday! I love the first photo, beautiful. Finding your voice isn’t about the destination, it’s about the journey. I’m happy to keep you company on the way.

    All are lovely sky – great word, honeyed. I really do love your first one best, but the reflections in the bottom one are quite lovely, too. Happy blog anniversary.
