I am a 4th grade teacher in Aspen, Colorado. I spend my summers in Hawaii, so there are lots of mountain and beach shots in my life! I successfully completed my "first" 365 Project in 2010 and now "drop by" periodically to post and check in with my 365 friends ... . My original intention was to keep a photo diary of my life, but I discovered so much more here (@365) than I ever expected! I have learned about different parts of the world through the eyes of those who live there. I have made friends, following the ups and downs of their daily life experiences. I find that I am more aware of my surroundings and see wonder in everyday objects and experiences and an enthusiasm to share. I just wish there were more hours in each day!
