In 2013, I began taking a picture every day, and posting them on this site. It’s Instagram, only not, which suits me very well considering how I just deleted my Facebook account1. With only a few days of the year left, it’s time for the annual A Picture A Day summary. This year, there are quite a few pictures of our kids (surprise, surprise), the particularly snowy winter, and some mandatory sunrises and sunsets.

As always when I make these A Picture A Day recaps, I encourage you to start taking a picture every day as well. I’ve only been doing it for 5 years, but the archive is already full of fond memories.

Without further ado, here is a snapshot of my 2018 as depicted by a few selected top shots from this year:
