Memories, Dreams and Reflections 2015

It’s time to look back and reflect on the images from the past 12 months. Each one brings back sweet memories: changing seasons, girls growing up and life moving on.

I'm playing along at Ramblings and Photos as I did in the beginning of 2014. I was surprised to see that this year there are quite many pictures that I haven't posted before, some of them I didn't remember at all. Looking back was an emotional memory lane. I'm all tears now ;)

1. Me: Photos of me aren't many. But there are some where I'm with my girls. This was my last year goal - go get in the pictures. This is one of my favorites.

2. I love you: no words needed.

3. Still laughing: After a surgery she was supposed to take it easy. After few days at home we headed for a little peaceful walk. It took her five minutes to climb to a tree... I rest my case.

4. Winter Wonderland: This one is from the very beginning of  2015. There hasn't been any snow this winter yet...

5. Birthday: Strawberries for daddy's birthday on 19th June.

6. Friends: Minea's eight year birthday party was in July and she celebrated it with her best friends at the beach.

7. I was inspired: by these.

8. Spring fever: the first tulips in March.

9. Travel/vacation: We spend ten dayss of our summer vacation in Sopot, Poland seashore. This is one lovely snapshot which I happen to love...

And another of girls at the beach...

10. Summer days: flower picking and evening walks 

11.  A day in my life: Well, meet Rape, the one euro Ikea mouse. Much loved family member.

12. All smiles; Her sixth birthday in early September.

13. Autumn harvest: Apples!

14. Family: This is probably the only picture with our whole family. Have to take more of these this year.

15. Celebrate: Mothers's day in May 

16. Let's do it again: a moment in the woods (with a tripod!)

17. I miss you: Right now I'm missing summer. Badly. The light, scent and colors.

18. Beautiful: Late autumn leaves. In it's simplicity and muted tones.

19. Dress up: Princess 

20. Macro: Should do these more since I love them so much!

21. Holidays: Christmas 2015. Obvious choice.

22. My favorite: This one ended up being the favorite of the year. It's got everything right. I love it.

23. Don't ever change: My very first sweet spot - children in sleep...

24. Just because. This beauty gets her picture taken way too rarely.

25. Hopes and dreams: Big things often have small beginnings!

Thanks for reading!
