year in review.

So, I’m hosting a contest on my blog with this template I made. I thought it’d only be fair if I made a layout, too. So here is our 2007 at a glance:

Year in Review

The journaling says: So many things happened to our family in 2007: Joshua grew from a baby to a toddler, starting the year not knowing how to crawl and ending the year running all over the house! Katie celebrated her fourth birthday and Joshua had his first. Katie learned how to swim like a fish while on vacation in North Carolina. Nicole opened her own digital scrapbooking shop, which Travis designed for her. We also were able to purchase Photoshop and a new Pentex SLR with money that we both made from our on-the-side design jobs. Travis was also finally given a raise and we moved from our little apartment in Maryland to a townhome in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. We celebrated Grandmom Livesay’s 100th birthday, Grandpa Don’s 60th birthday in Florida and Mom & Dad’s 25th anniversary. We celebrated our own 5th with a trip to the same B&B we spent our first night at. We came home to a very sick Buddy-guy who had to go to the ER. It was a crazy year, but a good year, too. Looking back, it’s hard to imagine that all these pictures were taken in the same year. So much happens so fast. This is a good reminder of what it all entailed…

It really was surreal to open up the first photos from January 2007. I thought for sure I must have been in the 2006 folder by mistake. It’s amazing what happens within one year. I highly recommend you try a little exercise like this, too! It’s actually a little shocking–in a fun way.

I’ve been thinking that I’d like to try that 365 day photography project sometime. I think for me, I need to start small. Travis and I have been talking about doing this for a month as a start (February sounds good to me!). Also helpful for blogging material, since I don’t have nearly as much to say here as I once thought I did… Ha! So, you might start seeing some more snapshots soon. Hope you enjoy that!
