I try to make it to Pilates twice a week, but could really use some aerobic exercise besides hefting props.  Since my dog really needs to get out for more long walks, it would be a great idea for both of us-even in the bitter cold-except I hate the bitter cold and we would both rather 
do this.

This has been an insanely busy year, between work, crazy kids schedules and my dad's health issues- but somehow in all of that I really want to find more time to just stop and enjoy the moments.

The new house we have been working on has been taking longer then we thought (don't they always) and I am looking forward to getting to the point where we can add the finishing touches so there is more of this -
and less of this.
You would think having a photographer dad that I would be a great photographer- I grew up feeling that was his thing so I never really took advantage of all that knowledge.  This year I would really like to improve my technical skills.

Travel- This year I would love to take the kids and husband and go someplace fab and new, perhaps Venice and up to Turin to visit old friends.  Or maybe Barcelona, or Sweden or......the list goes on.

This year I've met and worked with some amazing new people, here's to spending more time with them.  And I am looking forward to ALT and finally meeting so many of the amazing bloggers I converse with in person.

What are your thoughts for the year??


  1. Oh, so you are going to ALT....lucky girl. I'll see what I can swing to make it happen this year but it is such short notice. It looks like an amazing lineup.

    I'm still ruminating on the new year and what I want to do in it. Your photos are inspiring as is your reminder that there is a WHOLE WIDE WORLD out there that I want to explore! I hope your dad is getting better.

    May the New year bring us all delight!
