Best Nine of 2017 and Happy New Year!

Well, 2017 is almost over. It wasn't the best year, it wasn't the worst year. I am hoping to make some positive changes next year so that 2018 will be a great year! Not exactly a resolution but more of an action plan. Do you have any resolutions?

I would like to spend less time online. However I do love Instagram. It is my favourite platform and I use it more than anything else. At the end of last year I decided to post one of my photos a day. Since it is almost the end of the year I can say with utmost confidence that I will succeed as I don't intent to drop the ball now before the ball drops haha.

Each year at this time "Best Nine" posts start popping up, showcasing your most popular photos from the year. Most of them are also personal favourites of mine. I figured I would also show them here as a nod to the year that was.

Instagram Best Nine of 2017
As you can see, grain elevators are a popular subject! I am also happy to see the barn in the bottom right corner, since it belongs to the family of a friend of mine, which makes it extra special.

If you use Instagram feel free to check out my accounts:

Take care everyone, I truly appreciate the people who read my blog and those who leave comments. I have met some great people and read a variety of interesting blogs. Looking forward to more in 2018! Happy New Year and see you in a few days!



  1. I have only been following your blog for a few weeks and I like what I have been see. Looking forward to seeing more in 2018. Happy New Year!

  2. Your "9" are just wonderful Jenn! :) I personally don't do resolutions because frankly, at least for me (and I'm sure 99% of the population lol) they don't work!! :) But I do wish for some more stability financially in 2018, I hope to learn more frugal habits and save more money, pay down more debt....I wish for health for me and Alex and all the furry little kids we have. And I really wish for a wonderful gardening season!

    I have an Instagram account which I only use to follow some people, I will check you out! :) I hope that everything you wish for 2018 comes to you and your family. I love your blog, and I can't wait to see more grain elevators!!! Seriously, I love those things!!! :)

  3. I like your 9 too. I also enjoy and love your photography. Old buildings and abandoned ones are my favorite subjects to photograph too and you have come across some beauties. Hope to see more of your creations in 2018. Happy New Year!

  4. Good photos, Jenn. Hope your new year is one of smashing success!

  5. I love the buildings in your photos, Jenn. The skies are incredible too.

    I am glad we found each other this year. Happy New Year!

  6. I like your 9 very much, not just because many of them are grain elevators (although that helps). Thanks for posting such great photos all year, here and on IG, and thanks for sharing some photos with as well! Happy new year and all the best for you and yours in 2018 and beyond.

  7. Nice to meet you, Jenn!

    That middle one in the bottom with that moody sky is my favourite.
