I so appreciate the creativity that 365 inspires, demands, requires. (The description changes depending on the day...!)

2014 was my first year on 365 and I'm proud to say I managed to take and post a picture every single day.

2015 In my second Project I granted myself the option of posting a photo within a week of the time it was taken. This allowed me to use more than just one picture from a long-distance adventure, something I couldn't take advantage of during my first project.

Original Profile Info:

A camera was the first thing I bought with money from my first full-time job as a youth. I've always found the hobby enticing. I joined 365 to make sure I didn't let a day go by without putting my current camera to use and to document the learning I hoped would be accomplished in 2014.

I'm married to my high school sweetheart, (actually I was in grade school when I met him), am a mom to three grown sons, and zoo keeper to a pack of dogs, a number of parrots, and one llama. I love animals, the outdoors — mountains in particular, snowy ones the best— and of course using cameras to see the world around me. I live in the USA, Illinois to be exact, where there happen to be no mountains and not enough snow. This 365 Project is going to require a real stretch of the imagination when it comes to taking an interesting picture each day for a whole year. I confess to feeling that where I live is majorly lacking in subject material but perhaps through new eyes, 365 eyes, I'll come to see things around me differently.
