2010 in Pictures

Okay, before you watch my 2010 in Review video, a few caveats. First of all it is long. And by long I mean looooong, like, 28 minutes long. I tried to tighten it up where I could but, I swear, a whole lot happened! So watch when you’ve got some time. And some tissues.

Second, this retrospective cannot be considered complete, in spite of it’s epic length. Some how I managed to get zero pictures of some on my very best friends, like Kris and Charlie, Amy, Shirra and Tanis. But if you spent any time at Juniper Moon Farm in 2010 expect to see yourself in what follows!

Speaking of what you should expect, there are some rather graphic shots of sheep and goats giving birth. Circle of Life, etc.

Also, I might have stolen your pictures. So thanks.

I’d like to dedicate this montage to Sweet William, Tiny, Nan, Daisy and Miss Linda. I miss each of you every single day and the universe is just a little dimmer for me since you left.

And thanks to all of you, my lovely friends, for giving me this life. Every single day is a perfect miracle, even the days that suck.

  2. That was so great!

  3. WOW. Speechless, I am. What (a) life!

  4. You know the hard core groupies – we’re the ones who shout out the name of every animal (and people) who’s face flashes across the screen.

    Glorious re-cap. What an incredible year. Indeed – here’s to 2011 and beyond.. xoxo

      It was so funny- while I was putting it together, I realized how much time i got to spend with you last year! I love you, Suz. Let’s try to beat your ‘days on the farm’ record in 2011.

  18. …long, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for giving a french country girl a lovely site to visit and a life to dream about.

  19. From California-Thanks for a glimpse of your beautiful farm life. I know that all the hard work doesn’t show up in these pictures. Keep doing the good work – your farm family loves and needs you!!

  20. Sheep, goats, lambs, kids, dogs, puppies, chickens, horses, piglets, friends! Who could ask for anything more?
    Love the playlist. Love the video.
    Wishing you and your family many blessings and many more wonderful memories in the coming year.

  23. I am u-n-d-o-n-e. Heart bursting.

    Happy new year, everyone.

  24. Absolutely PERFECT! Not long enough doll! I’m gonna see it live in 2011…one of my resolutions! Wishing you the best of everything this year! And thanks for sharing your world so generously! xovxov (hugs and stitches!)

  25. So glad I took the time to watch the video. It was great. Thanks.

  26. MAG!!! And so nice to see the faces of many of your regular commenters!! I, too, hope to meet you and the critters in person next year, which is less than 6 hours away, can you believe??? Thanks for such lovelies, all year long!

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching this video. Such great pictures. Thank you so much for sharing your life with your readers.

  29. Dear Susan, It’s hard for me to believe that even though I have never met you, and I have never met your animals, Juniper Moon has become an integral part of my daily life through this amazing medium. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece with us. You inspire me.

  30. Dearest Susan- a Happy New Year to you and all of your four and 2 legged crew! Thanks for such beautiful images!

  31. Love the pics, love the music – made me smile. I think I saw a cameo of “Sid Vicious” the hedgehog :)
    Have a spectacular 2011!!!!!!

  32. Oh, so definitely worth it! Thank you. Happy 2011!!!

    It took a couple of days for me to find a quiet time to watch this, and I’m so glad I watched with no outside interference.
    It’s beautiful, and haunting and fills my heart with sorrow and joy, all the emotions of the year past, now. It’s a beautiful, beautiful story, Susan, and so wonderfully portrayed. Thank you.

  34. This is just wonderful, but the horror movie labor pain faces at 11:00 just killed me! Good job!

  37. Absolutely fabulous. Thank you Susan for giving us this wonderful reminder of the year just past. May 2011 bring you good health and happiness and enough prosperity to enjoy them. Here’s to contentment and peace for all.

    Thought I would just watch a few minutes, but could not stop watching…I feel so connected to you, your animals and farm and yet, have never met. Maybe 2011! Seeing Tiny again made me cry all over again.
