As the year comes to a close, I thought that I would do something new for me by embracing the common “year in review” trope. For those that follow the blog, many of the following images may be familiar. For those who follow me on Instagram, most will likely be familiar. But I wanted to put together a set of my favorite pictures from the year. I haven’t included captions, or stories with the frames: these are my favorite pictures — not necessarily my best or favorite stories. I tried to get 24, by picking two per month, but they clumped together in odd ways; I have 25 total, and I think at least one from every month.
