January 31, 2012

farewell, january.

(I just realized that I saved all my photo-files this month as from "January 2011". fAIL.)

One month of 2012 had already passed us by. Unbelieveable. I think that this year, at the end of every month I'll do a post with my accomplishments, favorite pictures that I took that month & some other favorites. Thoughts?

what I did this month:

- I got to photograph an awesome flour mill in the snow.
- I discovered new things about road trips.
- I tried to get my sleep schedule under control (talked about in the above link).
- I got to plan Zachary's first birthday party.
- I became a Lord of the Rings fan.
- I read the Lord of the Rings books in 10 days.
- I had a revelation.
- I learned how to play On Fire on the piano.
- I finally made a photo-wall in my room. (Look for a future post about it!)
- I brainstormed ideas for my 14th birthday party.
- I got excited for The Hobbit.

"The Road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow it, if I can."

- J. R. R. Tolkien

"We read to know that we are not alone."

-C. S. Lewis

"I've loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."


"Every day is a fight to become more than what you are now."

looking forward to in february:
