Favorite Photos of 2014: Life

8 comments

2014 has been a big year for me: about 26 cities, 10 countries, 3 continents, 24 flights (8 of them trans-Atlantic), 10 road trips, five long train rides, and a bus.  Add to that learning a new language, learning to cook, learning to live with S, navigating the German visa system, and a little bit of wedding planning, and it’s easy to say this ranks as one my biggest years yet.  Throughout all of the traveling and the lovely little bits in between, it was a year full of growth, rest, excitement, food, and love.  I can only imagine what 2015 has in store.

After culling through my thousands of photos from the year and picking out my favorites of landscapes, architecture, and food, here are my favorite shots of the rest of life from this past year.  Technically some of these could have fit into the other categories, but just go with it.

Cheers to health and happiness in 2015!
