Happy New Years Eve/New Year! This is the last photo I took before the ball dropped and the clock struck midnight.
I celebrated the evening with one of my oldest pals, Chris Karas, along with Lea Colagiovanni. Chris and I have spent many a NYE together and I was so happy to be invited out celebrate with him at the two parties he was attending. Chris even kept years worth of NYE hats and leis from the days when I held parties at my old house in Broadview Heights! Amazing, huh? It was also nice to spend it with Lea as well since we have not seen one another in five years.
It is so weird to be done with this project and I am SO proud of myself for sticking with it. There were days where I thought “Oh my God. Why did I start this? Why did I tell people to keep me accountable? Can I seriously take a photo EVERYDAY?!?!” But, while there may have been some days where the idea of getting a photo seemed daunting, there were so many days I was glad that I had a photo to post and write about. I was proud of my photos and I was excited to share them with whoever wanted to look at them.
I appreciate all of you who kept me going and encouraged me and commented and “liked” my photos. When people would say to me, “Oh, I really liked your photo” or “I’m really enjoying your photo project” it meant SO much to me.
So here’s to 2012 and here’s to keeping my 2011 promise of doing a photo a day for 365 days. I am sad that the project is over, but I am also a bit relieved and can’t wait to put the photos and posts all together in some way. Happy New Year!
