Reflecting on 2007…

Did you make any New Year resolutions? I usually do but not the kind that revolve around weight or fitness or habit breaking. Usually I’m trying to create some new habits because I just want to grow as a person. I usually sit down, look back and think about how I want to move forward! I want to plan ahead and be able to smile when I look back on a year and not have regrets…I’m one of those “moving forward” people!

All the personality tests say that I’m overly positive and optimistic…and their right! I look through the lens of promise and hope for the best every year.  After the ups and downs of 2007, I’m looking forward to what new things are in store for us and our family.

This year is going to be about slowing down and building on the foundation that was laid in 2007. I’m ready to dive into business, invest in mentoring new assistants, learn from my mistakes and become an even better photographer.

It’s also going to be about slowing down and enjoying family. Having a new baby forces you to do that! I’ll have the spring to plan out the year of photography, have the baby at the end of April and then take time to adjust…I know I’m going to need it!

What are the big things you want to improve, change, learn from so that this year is better then the last? Let’s encourage each other.

Yes, Vicki and I are hoping we can get you to just sit and drink tea with us underachievers, instead of accomplishing so much all the time! ( :

I’m taking a college course in Spanish this year as my new son-in law is Spanish. I am also helping him with his English and to adjust to this strange new world 🙂 . I do envy you starting with a new baby all over again. Having a new baby has got to be the most wonderful feeling in the world. But I’ve had my children now (four of them) and I have to (reluctantly) move on. Can’t keep them little forever, but I wish I could. The best days of my life were spent bringing up my children. So with only one child, or rather one young adult, (she’s 18) still left at home, I need new ways to occupy my mind. Learning Spanish is only the start. I had a part time job which fitted well around the children whilst they were growing up but I’ve taken early retirement along with my husband and we are going to spend as much time as we can travelling to those parts of the world we have yet to see. Anyhow, enough of my ramblings. I am glad you are slowing down to enjoy your family and wish you all the very best with your new baby boy. Spring is such a lovely time to have a baby too. My oldest and youngest were Spring babies.
