367 days ago, one of my close friends since childhood presented me with a journal.  However, it is not just a normal journal, but rather a five year memory book where you write a line a day. Instead of writing an entry on the blank pages from front cover to back cover, for your first entry you find the current date (i.e. September 23) in the journal, and compose your one line entry for that day. You then continue the next day, and every day after that, until you complete one year of entries. When you complete that year, you then write your daily entries underneath the prior years entry. The added benefit here is that you are instantly reminded of where you were and what you did exactly one, two, three, four or five years ago.

Well, 365 days ago, on September 23, 2012, I inked my first entry,

“NY, NY it has been an amazing ride. Thank you for your love and also being a pain in my butt. Here is the adventure that awaits! XOs KB”

To say that the past year has been an amazing adventure is an understatement. So in the spirit of reflecting, and instead of waiting for December and the common year in review, I thought I would  re-post some photos of the past year, since I do tend to tell my life story through photographs…
