Happy New Year!


Woah! Where did 2009 go? I was very blessed in the past year. From my photography career to welcoming a baby into the world and I couldn't be more thankful. There's so much I'd like to do in 2010. I thought I'd share a few of my new years resolutions with you. I think if I type them for all to see then maybe, just maybe, I'll stick to them.

1.) I'm actually not a big fan of resolutions but I do have my 101 list that I've been working on. Seems that it was put on the back burner in 2009, so I'm hopeful that in 2010 I will complete lots more! I have completed a few things on this list within the past few months, but just haven't blogged about them yet, promise I'll get to it (see #3).

2.) Be less wasteful. Just today I was cleaning out the refrigerator and there was a perfect example of how wasteful I can be. For goodness sake there's children starving in this world, and I'm having to throw out food that's gone bad. Made my heart hurt. Seriously.

3.) To blog more. There have been so many things that I've wanted to blog about and just haven't gotten around to it yet. I read lot of blogs. From decorating idea blogs to mommy blogs and definitely lots of photographers blogs. The one thing I love is being able to tell how real a person is through their blog. It's extra special when a photographer posts something completely non-related to their photography work- whether it be about their family, something they ate, even their dog- it just makes them more real. I hope to post a lot more this year.

  1. My resolution...Eat "organic" every meal!

  2. My New Year's Resolution: Since I can't have you by my side everyday...I am going to attempt to take random pictures of me and Derek, as much as possible. I used to take lots of pictures of us with those disposable cameras but he did buy me a Canon a few years ago which is still in good shape, thank goodness. My pictures won't be as classy as yours but it will capture those special moments that we'll want to cherish when he cooks, that's something to cherish! :) But as soon as you have those Valentine's mini-sessions, I'll be giving you a call!! Happy New Year!

  3. I am determined to get in better shape this year: mind, body, and house. Living off caffeine the past few months has added on the pounds and I'm determined to get rid of them. I've already started cleaning out around the house and am trying to get more organized, well as much as you can with 3 kids running around!
