It was a good year.

I hope you had the most beautiful Christmas and are gearing up for a wonderful New Year. We had a beautiful evening with dinner together in the meditation space on Christmas Eve, and presents with friends on Christmas morning and evening. A few travelers came to share with us, and there were lights, and candles, and a lot of good food. 

It was almost a year ago that Leaf and I started our photo blog, an idea of mine to bring us closer together. Little did I know just how much closer together we would become, as the year brought so many surprises. She just arrived yesterday, and after this year of moving and traveling and having a new baby, we are together here in this place, and we will be ending our blog today. Wow. I'm going to miss it.

It was a quiet blog, but mighty, I think, in that we documented something unusual: the lives of two friends from Australia and Canada, living in different countries, visiting different home countries, exploring the world with their cameras. I felt very honored to receive Leaf's photos, to see the world through her eyes. 

Here are just a few of my favorites.
