1st preview

dsc_1500I don’t know why (actually I know exactly why), but I just love this photo!  Could he be any more handsome?  I took one year photos for my nephew, Kalel, over the holiday break. He was such a sweetheart. He’s simply amazing! He started walking before he was even 10 months old! Whenever I picture him, I always see him walking around on his short little legs, clapping his hands. He only does that when he’s happy. but he’s happy often. Don’t tell my brother and sister-in-law, but I’m going to steal him one of these days.

I downloaded another trial version of LR 2.0 onto my day job laptop–I am in editing withdrawal–but it’s making my laptop so freaking slow. The giant spreadsheet I was working on, for work, tonight took five minutes to save. Oh when will I get my official copy of Photoshop? Therefore, only one little preview. He’s also the crawling little apple bottom baby in my blog header.

It’s probably a little to late, but I’ve been thinking a lot about my New Year’s resolutions. I try not to set too lofty ones because I hate failing! So without further adieu, here they are (in no particular order):

–  Be a better wife!

–  Be more green!

–  Be a better friend!

–  Dare to dream!

I know, pretty general, but I have very specific items I’d like to achieve in each.

I am still waiting for my Lightroom 2.0 and CS4 to arrive so I have not been able to work on any sessions since Thanksgiving. I hope to be able to get it soon so that I can show some photos. I also can’t wait to share some photos from our most wonderful 2008 Holiday season!

I also started working out again. I’m putting this up here because I need to be held accountable, so any of you that see me, please ask how it’s going. My goal is to run the Chicago half marathon in September 2009. Tonight, I warmed up, ran 1 mile straight (I almost died!) and then walked four minutes, then ran another 1/2 mile, and walked another five minutes. I stretched and tonight, I will do a little yoga to relax before bed.
