While most of you have compiled and shared a detailed list of resolutions, I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that it's 2012. Last year absolutely flew. When I stop to think about particular moments, some hit me so hard it might as well have happened yesterday. Others I try to remember and am met with a cloudy haze. Fortunately, the great moments are the ones I remember so well.
2011, overall, was a pretty fantastic year. If I made a list I'd say the "pros" column trumps the "cons" column 10 times over. Over the past few months, I've made a conscious effort each day to find something that fills me to the brim with gratitude. And you know what? It's been quite easy. I want to continue this in 2012 and hope it will become a part of who I am. I chose our Christmas card for a reason--I loved the simple phrase, "Be joyful." Such a great mantra, and quite easy when you step back and take a look at your life, ya know?
I have so many pictures I want to share with you! I have absolutely fallen in love with photography and wish I could do it every day. Unfortunately, I need about fifteen years of practice and by that time I'm quite certain every person on the planet will have their own photography business. It's been so much fun to capture fun moments of some of my favorite people. I hope this passion of mine sticks around for a long time because I enjoy it so much! Will do a picture post soon.
I've decided to make 2012 one of my favorite years of all time. I know there are many things I can't control but there are so many more things I can. And I will. So if your plan is to stand in my way, I'll see you in 2013. :)
