day three hundred & sixtyfive *seriously* {365/365}

365 days. wow.

Thank you, each and every one of you, who have supported me and encouraged me as I made my way through this project. You have no idea what it has meant to me.

and now?

I’m going to kick back, put up my feet and raise my glass to myself (at least until tomorrow).

Yes I am.

Take that project365. You brought it and I kicked your ass.


(turn up your volume .. I love this song)

HAPPY NEW YEAR! May 2011 bring you love and laughter and your every heart’s desire.

    Fantabdamnulous! I enjoyed each and every shot, J!!! I know it was a lot of work! But you should know that it brought eye pleasing joy with each shot, wistful sighs at the way you captured so much in a single frame, and for that I, and I guess we, thank you!!!

    wow. I’ve seen a few of these 365 videos recently.
    but really, yours is amazing.
    your images are so beautiful, i’m sitting here with tears streaming for how beautiful it is.
    i love how your furbaby makes appearances every now and then
    and still, my favorite photo of all time is the one of your daughter holding the frame.
    and i loved seeing the photos from when I found you and began following your photo stream.
    like old friends.
    looking forward to Focus 52
    but i’ve also decided to take the plunge and begin a 365.
    so glad to have found you in 2010
    cheers to 2011!

      Crazy woman! But cool too. You can sum up your 365 week, through it in the pool, and be all nice and tidy :)
      I don’t think I could make it through a whole year again, so soon. It’s a lot.

      Glad I found you too, chick. You’ve been inspirational in so many ways.
      I thank you xoxo

    I am crying my eyes out here. I told you I was going to get emotional when this came to a close…

    but your video did me in.

    And while I know I have always told you which ones were my favorites, I also realized that there were a few I must have missed somehow…or had just forgotten about.

    The one of you behind the iron fence? Beautiful. Made me think of a song called “Woman in Chains” by Tears for Fears. That song brings up so much emotion for me. If you listen to it, hear the lyrics…and remember any of my history, you’ll know why. That picture should be on the cover of the album. It’s perfect.

    The other? I don’t remember if I saw it already, but I remember doing the “To Write Love On Her Arms” project with my husband and son and my taking pictures of it. You thanked me for it, told me “you needed to see that” that day…and then, as your pictures were going by…I saw one with “love” written in script on your arm.

    And it made me cry just a little harder…because I felt like I actually might have inspired a tiny piece of your artistic world. If I didn’t…shhhhhh…don’t tell me. I like the way it felt. :)

    I am excited for the new year, the new project…

    I closed my Facebook account to ready myself for it emotionally. I don’t want to expend useless energy there any more. I want to put my heart and soul back on my blog…where it belongs and alongside the people who understand me best.

    Thank you for this good, hard, cathartic cry.

    I’m ready. Bring it on. xoxoxo

      I was waiting for you to watch. Honestly, I really was. Because when I do things like this, I do it for certain people too, and one of those certain people is you :)

      Love you muchly, chickadee. You always lift me up, build me up, make me feel that I can do so much more than I think I can. That is irreplaceable.


      PS – you DID inspire that post. It’s there in the comments ;)

    Congratulations on kicking ass and taking names. Having done the same, I know what a liberating and empowering feeling it is. Looking forward to more photography and a little less pressure in 2011. Cheers!

      That’s Natasha Bedingfield. Isn’t it a great song? Inspiring :)
      And coming from you, that is an amazing compliment! This project helped in so many ways. I should really make a list! I learned so, so much. Time consuming but so totally worth it.
      You should join us for focus52!
      Actually, I sent you a flickr mail ;)

    Thanks for the info. I’ve never heard of Natasha Bedingfield but am glad I do now. Yea, I should join the focus52 but am trying to find ways to spend less time on the computer instead of more. Places like Flickr has been so addictive for me the past four years, I’ve decided that this year I’ve got to find a way to not sit at the computer so much and spend more time outside taking pics. I’m just very apprehensive to jump into something new. But I’m sure it would be beneficial and sounds like fun.

    Thanks for asking.
