I'm not a big New Year's resolutions person. Motivation to change or improve shouldn't just strike on January 1st of each year. Self improvement should be a continuous, year-round thing. I know that if I make a New Year's resolution, I'm most likely setting myself up for failure. That said, there are a bunch of photo-a-day type challenges that have peaked my interest and make me wonder if that might be just the type of motivation I need to be more intentional with my camera and put it to use on a more regular basis:
Looking through the photos from the past year, there are all kinds of hockey and soccer photos, along with the obligatory holiday pictures.... but it's an incomplete story. There is so much ordinary everyday stuff that happens in between, and it isn't being captured. That's not to say that I'm going to start taking photos of every cup of coffee I buy, but I want to try and fill the gaps in the scrapbook of our lives.
So here's what 2013 looks like so far:
Treats from cupCAKE
Quality couch time.
Stocking up on books.
Straight up nachos with cheese and no fancy toppings per in-house 10 year old.
Grade 10 art project in the works.
Devil's Food Cake... bundt style. I can't bake a bundt without thinking of My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
Plenty of hockey.
