10 Photos that Shaped My Year // 2017

1.14.2018

The idea from this post came from Beka, who shared a link a few weeks ago for these prompts. While it was nearly impossible to choose just one photo for each, and there are tons of others I could have picked, I liked the idea of viewing my 2017 year through just ten photos. As you may suspect, the majority of them, if not all of them, have to do with J, since he was by far the biggest thing to happen to us in 2017!

Find a photo from the year's greatest adventure – big or small.

Find a photo of a significant moment.

What photo makes you feel most alive?

Pick your favorite photo of you and the people you love.
>>> R's eyebrow. J's chunky legs. I mean honestly.

Search for a photo of a morning you want to remember.

Find a photo that represents joy.

Locate a photo of the people who shaped your year.

Find a photo of you trying something new.
>>> First time out with both of them by myself!

Identify an image of something you are proud of.
>>> I am so proud of R and how she's adapted to so many of the changes this year! A new brother, potty training, no paci, moving to a toddler bed... so many big things for my sweet girl.

What is a photo that you'll want to pass down for generations to come?


What was your greatest adventure in 2017 (big or small)?

  1. such fun photos and I love the prompts! It’s cool to see a year recap on photos. I was going to do 10 for 2017 but couldn’t choose just 10 so I went with 20 for 2017 haha

    1. I wrote a post about it right after we started. It was not fun for 3-4 days, to be honest. But then it was fine. I mean at some point you just have to go for it! Here's that post, but don't let it scare you lol ;) http://www.theladyokieblog.com/2017/03/bye-bye-paci.html

  7. Ha! I love your face in the car.

    Also, I recognize that "You said 'smile' so I'll show you every tooth in my face" look from R in the one above it. :) Good times. At some point they learn to give natural-looking coached smiles. Unfortunately it's not until they're like 12.

    Your year was full of love; these photos make that very clear.
