a pictorial year in the life of amanda

December 31, 2007

Like I’ve done for the past two years (2005, 2006), I am summing up my entire 2007 in only 12 photos (one for each month).

I took less than half as many pictures this year as I did last year.  This year I only took a little over 4,000 . . . .it’s kinda hard to beat 9000 in one year. :)  Nonetheless, it was still not easy to choose only one pic per month, but it is a fun way to showcase the various things that took place this past year.

January: Telling People about Jesus
Sharing Jesus at the park

February: Go to Thailand
Sunrise in Thailnd

March: I Play My Erhu in the Park

April: I Learn to Make Spring Rolls
Yummy . . . A Homemade Spring Roll

May: A Fantabulous Weekend Getaway to Neighboring Island–PengHu (which I never blogged about but always intended too)
historic old house on WangAn Island

June: Students Graduate
4-4B Graduating Students and Me

July: My Cousins Come to Taiwan!!

August: I move to Tainan
stuff in my new house

September: My First MIRL–I get to Meet Fellow Taiwan Blogger in Person
me and Char

October: Yuka, One of My Japanese Friends, Comes to Taiwan!!
me and yuka at Confuican Temple

November: New School, New Students, New Friends
April, Flora, Emily, Me, Fion, and Stacy

December: Christmas Parties Galore!

Quite different than previous years.  This year was filled with more "風風雨雨"  (wind, wind, rain, rain), a Chinese idiom which can be translated "ups and downs."  But still the year remains a testament to God’s kindness.

If you’d like to join me in doing this, please do . . . just leave a comment below with the link to your own pictorial summary of
2007 so we can all go enjoy looking over your year (I tried Mr. Linky, but he doesn’t do custom meme’s anymore unless you pay).

    Hi Amanda!
    Thank you for that wonderful bit of information about butterflies in Taiwan!! That is amazing.
    Your “pictorial year” was a cute idea. :)
    Looks like a terrific 2007 – I wonder what 2008 will bring for you?
