A Year in the Life

It’s a little bit startling how quickly it all goes by.

If you’re anything like me, or like Tim pictured above, you might find it hard to believe that today Picture This Life turns a year old.

Yes, Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes ago I started writing. And every second day (189 times!) since the 13th of July, 2010 you’ve had access to a little picture of my life.

My family, fiance and a few friends started from the beginning, and over the course of a year a number of you have made reading about my life a little part of your life. So in a similar look back like we took on post number 100 earlier this year, if you’re looking for a way to measure a year in our lives together, check out the most popular posts from year one of Picture This Life.

#10 – Catch My Drift

#9 – Double A

#8 – Blackberries

#7 – The Princess Bride

#6 – Birthday Fever

#5 – Baptismal Blues

#4 – Urine So Much Trouble

#3 – Birthday Kiss

#2 – Fried Fair on a Stick

#1 – The Swaggerwagon

    Picture me, in disbelief that it’s been a year already. My face looks a lot like Tim’s right now!

    Thanks Laura. Meg, I was laughing so hard when I first found this picture in my files… I was crying. Nice to see you this weekend too. Ed, I mentioned this to Tim and he said, “huh?” Skyla, thanks. Time does fly! Fortunately catching and sharing these stories and pictures seems to slow it down… at least a little bit.
