I can hardly believe that 1,000 days have passed since I began posting my work on Flickr ... I checked my blog yesterday (http://viewfromtheoak.blogspot.com) and realize that I posted there almost three months longer.

As we live the daily-ness of our lives, I'm grateful for this visual record of what we've been up to, a showing of the things, events, views, people, nature that we value, and, as importantly, the friends who have made that journey with us through their comments.

HAPPY 1,000TH BIRTHDAY ... and thank YOU for being such an important part of this journey!
