Today I turned one year new. It is my first annual sober birthday as it is called. 365 is an interesting series of numbers. Being on Flickr I have a daily reminder of a much deeper goal(Thank you all) and a huge appreciation of getting there. Although I didn't actively participate in any 365 type of group or project, silently I have been doing mine beside yours. My start to sobriety also coincides with my start on flickr (I joined earlier and posted 2 food shots, then forgot about it until this year). Flickr allowed me to get outside of myself and see all of the wonders the world has to offer, that and I got the shutterbug pretty quickly as well. With help from Agnieszka I manged to begin to navigate my way around the camera.
The Flickrverse has been exactly what I have needed to get through this year. Something to focus on and see results. A daily interaction of sorts. When I started this journey I had very little knowledge of what it would or could look like. And...lets just say that I am more than pleased!! I know I have said it before, but this year has been pure magic. And, I owe a ton of thanks to all of you for the comments, support, friendship and for sharing your photos with me. I have seen some of the most amazing shots here and everyday it makes me strive to become better at how I see the world. THANK YOU!!!
As for the cake....It is all about chocolate today. I baked it, dressed it and now I am going to eat it too. All of it. Well, maybe I will share a bite with Agnieszka, but no more than that. I wish that I could share it with all of you as well, but the photo will have to suffice. Just know that it is very good and rich and decadent and above all delicious!
You can bake one too if you like.....email me for the recipe!
And if you do, please tell me how it is!
Happiest of Holidays to everyone! And have a happy, fantastic New Years! See you in a few weeks....off to Poland via the Czech Republic.....yes!
