But, I have had a blast these past 20 days posting these pictures here. Not every post has been done on-time and it's been difficult to determine the order, but I have enjoyed it. I love looking back at pictures and this gave me a reason do do so, several times. I feel as though I have relived nearly every moment of 2013 these past 20 days which, I suppose, is part of the point of this blog hop. If not, that's what I am getting from it.
I have also enjoyed visiting the other blogs that are participating and enjoying their photos and their year. It is amazing how one simple topic like a blog hop can bring people from all over the globe together. I have followed new blogs and look forward to continuing to read along once this is all over. It has been so much fun.
But I digress. I know what you are waiting for. My #1 (or #20 as it were) picture. Which photo made the cut? Which photo came out on top? Better than the rest? The cream of the crop?
Well, I'll be honest. It is nothing groundbreaking or astonishing. It is nothing super artistic. However, I believe it captures 2013, or a major part of it, perfectly. So here goes.
I know what you're thinking. Another family shot. And you're right. But it is so much more than that. See, this family portrait is the one we sent off with our initial adoption paperwork. It is the shot that our agency will review. That our caseworker will present when our file is discussed. It is one of the many shots that our future daughter will see before we even meet. Therefore, it is so special to me. As I have mentioned before, and will discuss so much more in the coming months, adoption is the focus of 2014 here in Drosche Land. It's busy, it's time-consuming, it's nerve-wracking, it's exciting. This is the picture that started a whole new adventure.
Well, there you have it. 20 photos from 2013. Sort of presented in a order of favoritism. Sort of. What a great blog hop! I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have!
All is well, picture perfect, in Drosche Land.
