New Year's Eve Paella: My 365th photo of the day!

My 365th photo of the day!

My husband and I have a long-standing tradition of making a paella on New Year’s Eve. Years ago, we stopped going out to dinner or a party on New Year’s Eve to avoid the crowds, traffic, and worry of drunk drivers. Instead, we put on some music and cook together to make this very special meal of rice, seafood, sausage, and chicken. Some years the boys join us, and some years they don’t. Taking a silly photo with the paella has been a part of it too, since long before I ever heard of 365project.

My first picture this year had been a bowl of leftovers from last year’s New Years Eve paella, so I love going full circle and having this be my final photo of the year.

With all the negativity in the real world and on the Internet, I have so appreciated being a part of this kind and supportive community. Thank you to everyone for the comments and support you have given me. I have always loved taking photos, but I had always done just straight “point and shoot” photos, and I have been very excited throughout this year to try out and begin to learn new techniques. Thank you for the inspiration and support, and I wish all of you a healthy and happy new year!

If interested, I recapped the last six months of my favorites here -- Paella for the Win: A Photo a Day for 365 Days If anyone else published recaps somewhere, I would love to see them :)
Sounds like a great way to celebrate and a delicious way

Fabulous 365th photo, Marcy! Congratulations on completing your first year! I hope you continue in 2018 because I thoroughly enjoy your photos and narratives. You have the most beautiful eyes and smile! Your smile is contagious because every time I've viewed a photo with you included and you're smiling, I immediately smiled myself. :-) Happy New Year to you and yours!

Congratulations on your year!!! I think it is lovely to cook together, decide what you are cooking and then share it. We do that, particularly on a Friday night at the end of the week. I do hope that you will continue. I echo all your thoughts about this community. Although on social media, I am not a big lover but use it for family reasons mainly. It is great when we get lovely comments from all the lovely people here but I also love the constructive element too. Heres to a very 'picturesque' 2018!
