Project 365 – Days 333-365 and reflection

2015 is over, and now we’re in a brand new year. Hello, 2016! I hope the start of this new year is treating you well, wherever you may be. πŸ™‚Β I’m writing this from Chapel Hill, NC, my hometown. I go home every year for Christmas, spending much enjoyable time with my family. I started the daily photo challenge here, 1 year ago, and I ended it here, yesterday. Full circle!

Doing the daily photo challenge has been a great experience. I enjoyed taking random shots every day and picking my favorite for the site. Editing them was fun, and I enjoyed experimenting with various apps.

I managed to take a photo every day in 2015 EXCEPT for 3 days. I’m pretty proud of that!!

This year I’m going to take a break from doing the daily photo challenge. I’ll still be taking photos and experimenting like I did last year, but not every single day. In 2016, I’d like to focus on blogging, and get back into writing. I miss writing. πŸ™‚

I plan to celebrate my very first Project 365 with something special, which I’ll share in an upcoming entry.

So without further ado, enjoy the last 32 photos I took for my 2015 Project 365 challenge:
