The WordPress weekly photo challenge asks us to…
…”celebrate the end of the year, by sharing the most meaningful (or favorite) photo you’ve taken in 2017.”
It has been a great year for photography buffs. I certainly was excited to get my first “real” camera, although I have great success with my mobile phone!
Today I am sharing your favorites and mine through the beloved song lyrics of “My Favorite Things” sung by my favorite singer, Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. You might have to use your imagination for the exact image to match the sentence.
All of these images were shared in 2017 on my blog and received the most pages views and “likes.” I threw in some of my own favorites, too.
Please feel free to sing along!
“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings, These are a few of my favorite things.
Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels, doorbells and sleigh bells, and schnitzel with noodles;
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings, these are a few of my favorite things.
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes, silver-white winters that melt into springs, these are a few of my favorite things.
When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don’t feel so bad!”
These three posts rose to the top of the list of most viewed in 2017.

I wrote this post about my niece Tiffany at the infamous New York Fashion Week, and I STILL get new followers to my blog because of this post. Not too bad for someone who is not a fashion blogger: Tiffany’s In New York: A 10-year Old Fashionista’s Perspective on Fashion Week
