Feathered friend

This is my last pic for my 365 project. Time has flown by! There were a few close calls, but I took a pic everyday and posted the same day.

This project has been life changing for me. Since I left teaching in 2006, I've been a little lost. This wonderful community has given my life a purpose again!

I've met so many awesome people and learned so many new things. I look at everything around me in a different light!

Photography has become a big part of my life. I love taking pics and looking at all the beautiful pics of my 365 friends. I feel like I take a little trip around the world everyday. :0)

I want to thank each and everyone of you for making my journey a fantastic one! I want to give a special thank you to Donna@lilbumblebee and Rebecca Briggs@bec01. They've both been with me from the beginning! :0)

I will be starting a second year tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to the new year!. If you have time, please look at my fun cat pic I will be posting in my other album. http://365project.org/cjwhite/my-little-world/12-31-2011

Happy New Year!!!
congraulations on an outstanding project and thank you for everything xx

Congratulations for making it Carolyn. A great picture to end your year with. I'm guessing you were a Science teacher, with all your knowledge of bugs and butterflies? Happy New Year!

Had to fave this Carolyn, both for the photo (which is stunning) and for the lovely way you have summed up this 365 community. I particularly love the bit about the daily trip around the world. That is exactly how I fee too. I would miss you if you left - so I'm very glad you're continuing on. Happy New year to you and your family.

How lovely, Carolyn. I must say I feel the same. I retired from teaching 11 years ago and enjoyed taking pics but had no real purpose until I discovered 365. I am also near the end of my year but will continue, as the friends I now have are part of my new life. Congratulations on tremendous success with your project. I look forward to your next year!
