A Love Letter to 2014

13 Feb

My mother always says “you can’t love a thing.”

Fair enough, but a year is a not really a “thing.” It’s a period of time. So it must be okay to look back on a year with love, right?

I loved 2014. I spent time with people I love, I visited places I love, and I did things I love to do.


In 2013, my cousin did a photo-a-day project. When I saw her slideshow at the end of the year, I thought it was a brilliant idea and decided I would take on the challenge for 2014. Although I missed about 10 days over the course of the year, taking a photo a day became a routine that I really enjoyed. Six weeks in to 2015, I find myself thinking “that would make a great photo of the day!” when I come across something interesting. Maybe I’ll repeat the project in some form in a coming year.

My Love Letter

For now, here is my video year-in-review. My love letter to 2014. I tried to include photos of interesting, meaningful, funny, poignant, and delicious things. The video runs 6:16 and features some catchy tunes. I hope you enjoy it.

I can’t guarantee any of it will be interesting to you, but it warms my heart to watch this slideshow and remember. If it does interest you, I’ve posted a slideshow of all 365 photos at the bottom of the post (I duplicated a few days to make up for the missed days) that you can click through at your leisure.

Thanks for the memories.

    Wow! Supreme 5 star++++, what a delightful story, each pic bursting with a 1000 words, love the captions you added to the slide show. It’s a gratitude journal to the umpty-umpth degree!
