New Years is one of my favorite days of the year. I love the promise and hope of a new year. So many possibilities! I guess it’s just fitting that New Years is also our wedding anniversary. Three years married on January 1st, 2012.
I also love making resolutions. I know I make overly ambitious lists, but that’s okay. I like to dream big. Daydreaming is one of my favorite activities. Granted, I don’t always keep the resolutions, but a lot can happen throughout the course of the year. Goals change.
With that in mind, here is my list for 2012:
~ Build my photography business and continue to improve my photography. There’s a lot that goes along with each of those.
~ Shoot daily. 365 project here I come (366 actually since 2012 is a leap year).
~ Also, once a week that daily photo should be a self portrait (52). That one makes me more nervous.
~ Organize my digital files. At least delete the ones I really, really won’t need ever. They can accumulate so fast and take up so much room, especially RAW photos.
~ Unsubscribe from emails from all the stores I thought I would want to keep up to date on the sales with but never ended up actually shopping at most of the last year.
~ Eat organic. This may have been on my list last year, and while I know I won’t be able to do it 100% with everything I eat, I think at least the food I cook should be.
~ Work on our new house. There’s still so much organizing and decorating to be done around here.
~ Blog more. That’s a big one. I lost my blogging mojo in 2011, and I need to get back some motivation, especially now that I have a new photography blog as well.
~ Take better care of myself. I get sick a lot more now that I have a kid, and I think it’s due mostly to the fact that I don’t have the best eating habits, need sleep, and need exercise.
We spent New Year’s at home just the three of us because Cady was really sick with RSV and under house arrest.
When she started feeling better, we took her for a walk in her pajamas to the playground for her first outing since the weather in Texas is surprising nice this time of year (often sunny with temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s). She seems so sad and lonely here watching the big kids play, but she got really happy once she felt like she was playing, too.
