my first blogiversary

drum roll, please...

three hundred and sixty five days ago i threw open the doors of the dew drop inn!

my first post was simple.

before beginning, i dreamed of creating this space for a long time.

it has been an amazing experience.

this project has:

provided me with a new way of seeing

challenged me to be consistent

introduced me to incredible people

frustrated me with technical learning curves

delighted me with unexpected gifts

fueled my love of photography

changed my creative thinking

forced me to let go of perfectionism

reminded me to keep the spirit of a beginner

radically shifted my perspective as an artist

my deepest gratitude to you, dear readers, for your presence and support.

thank you for being honored guests at the dew drop inn.

it is one of my life's great pleasures to be the keeper of this place.
