John is my BBrother, LB, friend, anchor, and coach. He will also be the best man at my wedding.  I cannot express how grateful I am for our bond.  I could not be more excited for his upcoming graduation!  He has worked extremely hard to obtain his degree.

Day 366: December 31, 2012

I am ending this project in a way that is similar to how it began… with myself.  However, things are different this time around.  2012 has been such a wonderful year.  I am thankful for the many experiences that I had throughout the year.  I have grown so much as a photographer and as a person.  I hope to continue the momentum into the New Year and grow in all facets of my life.  I have shared a piece of me with the World on a daily basis, which was a challenge for me, and I am truly honored to have done so.  It feels great to set out to do something and accomplish it.  Three. Six. Five. Plus. One. has been a fantastic milestone in my journey to becoming a better photographer and person.  I now see many things differently as a result of completing this project.  I have found inspiration in several things, celebrated various occasions and lived through another year filled with love, great people and good times.  I completed this project for myself.  If any of you doubted me… thank you.  If any of you supported me… I thank you as well and I am eternally grateful for your support.  I hope that the New Year is wonderful for you and those you love- SM
