A year in photos

2012 was one of my busiest and best years yet. It was also my most photo-filled, so what better way to sum up the year than with a few of my favorite shots? Some 2012 highlights: John and I took an epic trip to southern California that even a phlegmy, hacking cough couldn’t ruin. I got bangs and then spent the rest of the year growing them out. I took on an internship (which led to a part-time gig) at Urbanite magazine on top of my other job until the magazine folded. One of my bestest friends got married, and although I couldn’t convince her to let Bill Murray (their sheep) be the ring bearer, I did get to be a bridesmaid. I attended a number of musical events—the most memorable (and painful) being Firefly Music Festival. And most importantly, I amped up this here blog by putting in more writing time, launching an interview series, and getting to know you guys better. When my hard work was recognized by the Baltimore Sun thanks to your votes, that felt pretty darn special. Thank you for that.

So while 2012 was arguably one of my best years yet, I’m prepared to say the same about 2013 a year from now. There’s a lot I have planned that I can’t wait to share with you guys, and I’m lucky to have people who care to read about my adventures. I hope your own plans and adventures are equally as thrilling—and if not, why aren’t they? There’s no better time to come up with some dreams than right now.

Oh, and psst…

I got a fancy new camera. Don’t worry, I’m not done with film photography. But I WILL be taking a lot more pictures. See you in 2013!

  1. This is such a neat idea. I’m sure there are going to be a lot of “Looking Back” posts being written this weekend but how many can say they have the pictures to back up most experiences?

    Also, can I have your life?

    • You flatter me. What I didn’t include is that I spent a good 75 percent of my year eating, sleeping, web surfing, or talking about eating, sleeping, and web surfing. But I had to pick the most monumental moments, so…


  3. Your photos have such an awesome, vintage air to them. I love it. Especially the fourth one of you and your guy. 🙂 Hope you have a happy New Year, Cassie!

    • That’s what I love about the darned thing. It’s so easy to take gorgeous pictures with it… when I’m not screwing it up. 😉 Happy New Year, Lauren! Email coming your way soon.

  4. What a beautiful year of photos! Enjoy your last two days of 2012, and I look forward to being a better follower of your blog in 2013!
    Happy New Year!

  5. Love your pictures! You’ve got serious talent girl 🙂 What a great idea to do an interview series! I’ve read blogs that do that with the bloggers family but never the audience.

    • Thanks, Tarrah! I’m so happy I started the series. It’s made such a huge difference not only in readership, but (I think) quality. Most of all, it’s just FUN meeting so many cool people.

  6. Congrats on a great year, Cassie–and thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos! Here’s to even more in 2013!

  7. Lovely Photos! Love the film stuff. And Happy New Year!

  8. Happy new year! I hope 2013 is full of very pretty photos. 🙂


  9. Such vibrant photos brilliantly full of life! (I’m trying to take from your wise decision from your last post and expand from the word “awesome”.) I’m excited about your new camera- can’t wait to see what you share. Happy New Year!!

    • Thank you, my dear! I’m having so much fun with the new camera. (And keep me on the right track… “awesome” is so easy to revert back to.)

  10. I love the idea of the year in photographs–it’s so true that a picture speaks 1,000 words. Here’s to a new year of hundreds more story-filled photos!

  11. pretty pretty pictures!! looks like a pretty grand year!
