the wu’s year in photos

December 31, 2009

Even though I’ve let my blog slip majorly in the past few weeks and months, I couldn’t let my blogaversary and annual tradition of choosing one photo per month slip past.

This will be my fifth year to do this:

2005–was my third year in Taiwan, and I started blogging
2006–my sister got married and my brother came to Taiwan
2007–I moved to a new city, and my cousins came to visit
2008–I met the love of my life; we dated, got engaged, and then married . . . it was perhaps the most perfect year of my entire life. :)

I think I took less photos in all of 2009 than I did in many of the months of 2008.  Kinda makes me a little sad, and makes me want to resolve to take more photos in 2010.  Anywho, not analyzing anything right now, which I am OH so tempted to do.

Let me get right to the point . . . below you find a month by month look at our 2009 using only one photo per month.

    Dare I say it? Okay, I will. Have a baby, and you’ll know what the camera was MEANT for. Seriously. You will be amazed at the number of photos you’ll take of that bundle of joy. Shoot, it starts with the pregnant belly!

    I have noticed that you’ve blogged less often as Mrs. Wu. But that’s okay. I know you’re lovin’ life! Enjoy!

    Oh, Jimmie! . . . we would LOVE to have a baby in 2010!!

    Shoot, we would have loved to have had one in 2009, but we aren’t the only one’s who get to decide whether or not we become parents.

    Loved seeing a post pop up today from you and enjoyed the traditional end-of-the-year photo review. It made me realize that I’ve really missed your blog, but I definitely know how it is!

      Thank you, Deb. I’ve actually missed blogging and would like to get back to it to some degree.

      Happy New Year! amanda :)

    Amanda ~ you’ve inspired me to include my in-laws in our Christmas traditions next time. I’ve avoided doing that because they only celebrate it as a religious holiday, and because I assumed it entailed me heading over there. But why not invite them over to help decorate? What a great idea!
