To thank Thee for the era done,
and Thee for the opening one."
~John Greenleaf Whittier~
Below is a small photo mosaic of some favorite photos scattered throughout some of my blog posts for this year.
Cindy, thanks so much for hosting and for this great idea! It was a lot of fun to go through all my posts for 2008 and see which ones stood out to me. I have posted more photos in calendar order and given a brief description of the post as well as the link if you wish to visit that specific post. 2008 has been an amazing year and I am so glad I captured some of it in words and photos. I never knew that blogging would be such a wonderful way of memory keeping. I hope you enjoy this year in review!

JANUARY: The Bloggies!This post was written during the writers strike in Hollywood. The titter was that there might not be any awards ceremonies because of the strike. I did a bit of a spoof on this topic after receiving some sweet awards from fellow bloggers. That is me in the photo decked out for my red carpet run!
FEBRUARY: Seaside Dreams and Mermaid Things!This post started out to be on sharing an art swap I participated in and turned into a collection of beautiful seaside memories from my life.
MARCH: The Easter Parade!This post was a blog event that I hosted and was a ton of fun to put together. Everybody loves a parade so I hope you enjoy this one!
APRIL: Dressed to a Tea!This post was when I was participating in a blog-a-thon hosted by Gracious Hospitality. The posts related to this event were all tea themed. Here I share some recipes as well as my fantasy tea by the sea!
MAY: The Road Less Traveled!This post was just one of those fun family outings and adventures where fun and delightful discoveries were made along the way.
JUNE: Heirlooms, Treasures, and Keepsakes!This post shares a few family heirlooms, keepsakes, and treasures and the stories to go along with them.
JULY: Where I'm From!This is a kooky post filled with random stuff but ends with a poem I was inspired to write that tells you who I am and where I'm from.
AUGUST: Bring Flowers!This is my favorite pictorial post. It is just a few simple shots of flowers on the banks of Mammoth Springs on a day trip my husband and I took.
SEPTEMBER: Words and Birds Converge!This post is my favorite art piece that I created this year. I love everything about this piece from the poem that inspired it to the rock that lead to its creation!
OCTOBER: The Father's View!This post shares an entry from my personal journal and remains one of my favorite inspirational posts here at the Quill.
NOVEMBER: Show Me Your Glory!This is another inspirational post that remains dear to me as God ministered to me through the glory of His creation.
DECEMBER: Warm Winter Wishes!This is a favorite recent post with a bit of wit and humor thrown in with a work in progress piece of art.
One thing I came to realize after previewing all my posts for this year that they are not particularly picture rich so I think this is a challenge I will take on for 2009. Who knows where my blogging adventures will take me next? I look forward to the next leg of the journey. Thanks for traveling along with me!
