Day by Day

Challenge: take one picture everyday for one year.

Challenge accepted.

Starting January 2015 I took a picture every single day. Well, almost every single day. Last year was a crazy year full of lots of crazy stuff like moving from California to China! It’s basically been one gigantic roller coaster of emotions but we made it. I wish I could say that I hadn’t missed a day, but I did miss just a few. But I’d say 362 pictures out of 365 is pretty good.

As I’ve finished that year of taking pictures, I think I may do a random month of them again every now and then maybe, but as of now that’s on pause.

If you’d like to look through the past year of my life, you can scroll through the posts below!

DAY BY DAY: POST #362


2015, it’s been wild. It’s been crazy, it’s been emotional, it’s been hilarious, and full of the most wonderful adventures.

2016, I know you’re going to match 2015’s wild and raise it to a whole new level.

Let’s do this.

A whole year has passed! I have missed a few days of taking pictures, hence the reason this is day 362 and not 365. I don’t think I’ll be posting pictures everyday anymore. I do think I want to experiment with normal blog posts and maybe “taking pictures for a month” or something like that. We’ll see. 🙂 But anyways, Happy New Year! 🎉🎉🎉

This post is a little different. I picked a few things off Pinterest that were making me rather excited for the upcoming Christmas season. Christmas is my favorite time of year (autumn being a close second) and I found it too hard to just choose one picture for my blog. So here’s a few Christmas-y things to get you excited for the festive season.


 Baking, candy canes, and a hot drink are vital.

This was just far too cute. ☺️

 This always has our house smelling soooo good! It literally is what Christmas smells like.


Wrapping! I love the idea of wrapping with plain brown paper, and tying it with string.

 Oh the Christmas puns…

Very merry indeed.

 I love this. 😂

Winter sweaters and festive scarves!

 Christmas sweaters are a must.

Tights, plaid, and a chunky cardigan.

 Christmas lights!

And of course, the tree all lit up.

I know, I get excited a bit too early. 😉 Not to mention the fact I’ve been listening to Christmas music since August. Shhhhh…

I stared out the window

As you drove

We see the world pass by

The blurs of our wanderings

You turn the music up

Like it never mattered where we were going

As long as the wind found your face

And the light found my eyes

And your hand finds mine

We’ll wander to nowhere

And back again
