My year began and ended with champagne, with my nephew and family, and friends and old roommates' cats in between. These are the photos that I don't often share—the ones that are about capturing a moment more than a beautiful frame, although I'd like the two to meld more in 2012. It's not edited or fancy, or even especially beautiful, but it was my 2011 (and that makes me smile).

A note from last year's version:
Holding down the arrow key in iPhoto, and watching my (documented) past fly by, I had the idea of making a sweet little video. It's somewhat of a slideshow, and a stop motion at times, but let's call it—a movie.

  1. This is so great! I'd love to know how you made it, I just scrolled through all my photos and it looked crazy!

  2. Woah, so flashed! But I love it! All the best for you in the new year!

  3. really beautiful, love this idea. i'm totally jealous that you have the fireworks book by pierre le hors. i've looked everywhere but it seems to be sold out. :(

  4. That was so brilliant! What a beautiful year, I hope this one is even lovelier!
