Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin with this post. 2012 was a lot of things to me – it was amazing, challenging, exhausting, inspiring – the list goes on. I managed to learn more about myself this year than I ever thought possible. Photography opened up so many doors to me this year and led me to some of the most incredible places. As usual, my ventures down south – North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia – were an absolute delight. I also had the chance to shoot on Cape Cod (twice!), in Vermont (twice!), and in Newport, Rhode Island (twice!) all for the very first time this year. I drove myself down to West Virginia for the first time (listening to John Denver’s Country Road no less than 32 times on my trip) and hopped on a plane to France the day after I got back. It goes without saying that our trip to France was the highlight of our year. Experiencing Paris for the first time with Michael was a dream, and words simply cannot describe my love for Provence. We met some of the most fascinating people during our 2012 travels and, true to form, had some of the most unforgettable dining experiences.
2013 is shaping up to be a bit calmer than last year (I’ll be staying a little closer to home), and I have to say, I’m pretty excited about the change of pace. Knowing Michael & I though, we’re bound to partake in various adventures throughout the year, and I look forward to sharing them with you in the coming year.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to everyone who made this year so memorable. I’ll be back next week to share my very favorite photos of 2012 with you all.
