MMXII: Goals

MMXII: Goals

January 2, 2012

Happy New Year!!

I hope you had an amazing NYE celebration :-D We had so muh fun at NV downtown with some dear friends.

If you missed last week’s round-up you absolutely want to go back and see them! Monday I shared my favorite images of couples in LOVE. Tuesday was full of pictures of me working behind the scenes! Wednesday was my favorite wedding portraits. Thursday was kind of hilarious and awesome…candid random pictures from weddings that made me smile or laugh! And Friday was a DANCE PARTY (aka hilarious reception round-up)!!!!

Today’s post isn’t just about the goals I’m sharing but it’s about putting this stuff out there! However big, and scary. However hard I will have to work. There will be things on these lists that I can cross off easily, and there will be things that just won’t happen. But I want to push myself this year, like never before. I want to work harder at working smarter. There will be things I fail at, I’m sure. And there will be things I’m fearful of trying. This is where I need you to push me! Alright here we go!
