2008: the year in pictures.

"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.

And to make an end is to make a beginning.
"
~T.S. Eliot

I saw some friends do this on their own blogs, and I thought it would be a neat way to capture 2008 - a photo for each month.

JANUARY...
...a winter walk through the neighborhood with my niece.


FEBRUARY...
...buds appearing on the Bradford Pear in preparation for spring.


MARCH...
...a perfect beach day in California with Jen.


APRIL...
...our back yard comes to life again.


MAY...
...discovery of the Cedar Ridge Preserve, a mere 20 minutes from our house...who knew?


JUNE...
...a trip back home to New Jersey - enjoying the mild weather and tall, tall trees at my parents' house.


JULY...
...celebrating 3 years with my wonderful husband.


AUGUST...
...a visit from Victoria for Labor Day.


SEPTEMBER...

Yay, YAY!! Labor Day vacation - I had so much FUN with you guys. And some kick-ass meals. And even thought it's gone...watching Food Network with you made a huge impression. :) Love you guys and can't wait to visit again in February! Can Greta handle visiting with crazy small doggies?
