We’ve tried a lot of photo memes over the years, but none of them seem to stick. There are some ideas for next year floating around (if you have any, let us know!) but we thought to close out 2016 we’d share some of our favorite photos we took, and why they’re our favorites. A photo a day for ten days, as we countdown to 2017.
Feel free to share your own photos in the comments.
Look at these faces omgggggggg. My darling L brought her new puppy along on a trip to Milwaukee to visit us, and Em was like “OOH LEMME SNUGGLE TAKE A PICTURE”. I had to take a burst, because this poor dog was so squirmy and overexcited. HILARIOUS. I got a bunch of good shots from the burst, but this one is the best. The excitement on her face and the desperation on his really makes it.
This is my favorite picture from the year. Ruca bathed in sunlight, happy, sitting in the passenger seat next to me. It’s perfect. 2016 was a year of extremes. Some of the best things happened, and some of the most heartbreaking things happened. I haven’t quite come to terms with losing my Mama yet but hopefully 2017 will be a year of healing and moving forward. This is how I’ll always remember her.
Everyone always talks about Southwest sunsets and this picture makes me believe the hype. It was even better in person. This was taken at my nephew’s flag football game. I didn’t really want to be there but it was important to him so the kids and I went. I’m so glad I did. I was able to snap this and remember there’s still beauty in the world. Even when it feels like everything’s falling apart. Here’s to the new year and finding beauty where we can.
