365 Project - Year 1

Since it's leap year, my 366th post is this little vid. My most heartfelt "Thank You" to those of you who continued to comment on my pics, whether halfway decent or bad! I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your support throughout the first year of my project. It has meant more to me than you know. Some of you left some of the kindest remarks that got me through some tough times. What an amazing group of 365 friends I found to follow!

I'm NOT leaving 365, but I won't be able to post and comment like I have in the past since I am working again. I may comment on your pics more than I post this next year, until I can figure out how to best budget my time. Be seeing you through your pics this next year with maybe a few of my own.
Congratulations! It has been a wonderful journey going through all your images. Good luck with your new job!

Congrats! Love this (and can you please tell me what program you made it in).
....and so glad you are staying on.
August 26th, 2012  
Mags, I have to say you have put so much of yourself in this video. Your love of music with the harmonica featuring, your love of all things simple, small, and unusual! The addition of bird sounds, seagulls on the beach, song birds in nature plus the rain! Who doesn't like the sound of rain on the roof! Your road ahead is misty like your picture but I feel it will change just like you changed the black and white to color in pictures! Your life will color our lives in viewing your huge talent for beauty! Hugs to you!
August 26th, 2012  
@maggiemae can't say it any better than MaggieMae, that's for sure. Super hugs in appreciation for all that you are, and you touched the lives of so many with your photos and your words of encouragement. I feel blessed to witnessed your journey and to have learned from a true country girl.
August 26th, 2012  
Maggie I love this! You've done it beautifully and have done your photos justice! I am so happy this is not a goodbye, it's hard to say goodbye to dear friends. I look forward to reading and seeing your news and sharing mine and wish you all the best with all my heart! xoxo
August 26th, 2012  
Wow, what a spectacular way to celebrate the completion of 1 year on 365. I have seen and remember very clearly many of the shots. You have been a marvellous photographer throughout and hope you don't stay away a lot. Good luck.

You are amazing. I wish you such wonderful success with your job. Looking forward to seeing photos from you. Your wonderful comments and words of encouragement on my project have meant so much to me.

Congratulations and celebrations and a side-shuffle dance to your music while I perused... it's been a pleasure commenting on your photos and sharing your journey with you. May all good things come your way and I do hope you continue with 365 - even if it's a sporadic feed. :) Whooop whoop! Well done. ♥
August 27th, 2012  
@marlboromaam You are so sweet, Maggie. Take care of you always, first. Take photos as you have time and post those as you have time but mass thanks works for all. If you do not have time or energy please leave this as the last thing that you do. I know you know this but really take care of you. Sounds like your job is so much to take on but so glad you have it. Thoughts are with you as you go one day and one week at a time. Hugs to you, Maggie.
August 28th, 2012  
@mantha Thank you, Sam! See you soon!

@cjphoto LOL! Not all! Just a few. I figured it was long enough and I probably should've cut out more shots to shorten it. Thank you, Chris!

@chauncygirl You are so sweet, Heidi! Thank you for your wonderful comments and support! Be seeing you soon!

@rmkk Thank you, Marlene! I can't stay away for long. Would miss your beautiful pics too much!

August 28th, 2012  
Will miss you a lot! I've had a busy month so haven't been commenting at all but I know that you were one of the first people I formed a connection with on 365. Your comments and support was always heartwarming. Good luck with everything ahead. Hope to hear from you often :)
August 28th, 2012

Congratulations, Maggie! You've finished your project! It's an awesome achievement. You've made such wonderful, beautiful photographs. Your love for nature is so apparent and your kind, encouraging words always raise a smile. Great video, and keep shooting! 8)
August 30th, 2012  
OMG, Maggie....words cannot express how much I enjoyed this incredibly creative video clip. I sat through the whole 11 1/2 minutes in awe. What more can I say than this is the best recap I have ever seen of a year on 365! I have always enjoyed the wonderful variety of your photos since I started following you last year. There is not a bad one in the bunch and each one says something special. I realize how busy you must be. For myself, I cannot even imagine working and being active on 365. I'm retired and have a hard enough time keeping up as it is ;-) I really admire you and hopefully you'll be able to post from time to time. I'm happy you won't be leaving ;-) God bless and take care....hugs.
August 30th, 2012  
I hope the new job doesn't get too crazy for you! Glad to hear that you will stop by from time to time! :-)
August 30th, 2012  
Congratulation Maggie. I loved all your photos :) I wish you good luck with your job. I know its hard to keep up with work and everyday photos and comments but I hope to see some of your photos in the future. :)

You did it, my friend! It's been an amazing year for you from beginning to end. I remember every one of these photos! What a beautiful person you are, Maggie. You were always there for me ... with your encouragement and support. I'm so happy that you got the job ... but nobody will miss you more than I will. You have no idea what your support has done for me. It kept me going ... one step at a time. Come back ... comment and post as you can. May God keep you safe and bless you always. My love and hugs.
September 4th, 2012  
Hey Maggie.....first of all let me say congrats on making it full term on 365. When I first started 365 your name kept popping up on others posts. I checked out your albums and was blown away. Needless to say I humbly asked if I could follow you. I have learned so much from you cannon of work. You are an inspiration to me and to countless others. I have looked forward to your comments, and have been humbled when you have pinned my pics. You are in a word, awesome. I have enjoyed the ride, and if it continues we are all in for a treat. Here's to you Maggie.
September 4th, 2012  
Maggie - I miss you. I had a little bit of surgery the other day and have been in my own world - so I had to hunt you down. First of all - congratulations. You did it. I came along into your year so some of what I just watched was new to me. And I am in awe. Thank you for being there and always so supportive. Thank you for all of the tips that you have so willingly shared with me.
I am happy for you that you found a job - I know how hard that can be. But, selfishly, I miss you - a lot. You have no idea how I would look for what you had to say because I respect your opinion. Hope you adjust soon and at least come back on the weekends.
God keep you safe.
September 5th, 2012  
Wow! I feel like I've missed the party! I'm so glad your staying! You have been so fun to follow and watch as you post your fab pics! I couldn't imagine 365 without you, Maggie!
September 5th, 2012  
Lovely job with the video & congratulations on 365! Glad I got to run into you on here, you rock! lol!
September 6th, 2012  
Congrats on completing your year! You were THE ULTIMATE 365-er to me. You posted beautiful shots and always took the time to comment on everyone's photos. You added so much richness to the site with stories of your past and the wisdom you've gained in your life. In other words, you've made 365 a great experience for me.
September 7th, 2012  
Just caught up with you, Maggie, having been away. I'm so glad you managed to finish the year and it's a lovely video of it all. I do hope you will enjoy the job, although I must say I shall miss you!
