525,600 Minutes

Well Mr. G, the official count is in... 
In the 525,600 minutes of 2010, 
not counting the 30-40 sleepovers I had at my parents' house for various holidays and celebrations, 
I spent the night away from my home 
87 times
In my days exploring I traveled to:
North Carolina
New York
New Jersey

I skied, hiked, ran, swam,
sailed, tubed, sunbathed, sang,
danced, ate, relaxed, talked,
 smiled and laughed
around the world.

I stood in awe of beauty.
Feasted my eyes on natural wonders that took my breath away.
Learned new things.
Crossed 4 things off my Life List.
Felt present and free and
so, so grateful for this exquisite, precious life.

I spent much of the year up here...
I also captured what I saw through the lens of my beloved camera,
and looked a little like this in most places I traveled...
When I look back at the pictures I took throughout the year, I am reminded of all the reasons why I felt the need to lug my enormous, heavy, conspicuous camera with me from sea to shining sea.
Here are just a few of those reasons...

My Year in Pictures: Snapshots of 2010

Thanks for everything, 2010...
I couldn't have loved you more!

And thank you Mr. G., for giving me such a hard time about my travels :).
It is becuase of you that I documented each adventure so thouroughly.

And how can I not be excited to get moving in 2011 when it greeted me like this?
Happiest New Year to everyone!
I'm so happy you're on this journey with me.
