2011 - the Journey

Today I am participating in Memories, Dreams and Reflections of 2011 - what a journey it has been!

Me!  Photo from local newspaper, published on Mother's Day, 2011, with the angel that hangs outside my door all year.

 I love you!  My hubby, Dan
Still Laughing -  Hubby helping my 80 year old aunt learn apple grafting - we used toilet bowl wax to protect the graft after we wrapped it! An interesting use...

Winter Wonderland - Snowfall on I-64, somewhere in Indiana

Birthday - Grandson's 4th birthday, with his mom and his girlfriends

Friends - Okay, I fudged this one a little...this is most of my family for Mother's Day...out to lunch
 (but they are still my friends!
I Was Inspired - this flag was displayed along the Blue Ridge Parkway and looked so regal in the fog.  Long may she wave!
Spring Fever - Spring blooms!

Vacation - Daytona Beach Sunrise!
Summer Days - Summer fun!
A Day In My Life - My typical day -behind the lens!

All Smiles - Learning to love the water - happy boys!

Autumn Harvest - Picking the pumpkins for Halloween!

Family - Home - Christmas Chaos!  Joy!

Celebrate - Christmas Bokeh
Let's Do It Again - Ireland island retreat - I long to return!
I Miss You - My brother, Roger...gone but not forgotten!  (This photo is not from 2011, but still alive in my heart every day of the year)
Beautiful - Fountain in Sebring, FL
Dress Up - Halloween!
Macro - Hens & Chicks in my back yard
Holiday - Senior Citizens Flag Waving on Veteran's Day in Sebring, FL
My Favorite - Cape Henry Lighthouse staircase (won a digital photography contest)

 Don't Ever Change - hubby, grandson and me - being silly!

Just Because - I loved the look of this giraffe at the St. Louis zoo!

Hopes and Dreams - I want to go back to Ireland and explore more of that country!

Hope you enjoyed my stroll through 2011!

This is wonderful, Linda. I wasn't familiar with this meme - I just may have to participate! I really can't say which of your pictures I like best -they're all great! The Ireland sunrise/sunset shot caught my eye. It was nice to see the picture of Roger too.

That giraffe is awesome! We don't have giraffes at our zoo. I love your macro and Spring fever shots, too! Very cool spiral staircase! Great set of photos!
