My hopes for 2011 - revisted

My Hopes for 2011 (revisited... did I do what I said I would?)

- start eating and moving as though I am actually pregnant... I need to step away from the desk more often then I do and respect my time to be quiet and peaceful.

I don't think I really started doing this until Winter 2012... although my girlfriends would probably tell you that in some way I was always doing something but I just feel more successful let's say at doing this part as of this year.

- purchase another lens to add to my equipment in 2011

...hmmmm don't remember... I did get a lens and I think it was in 2011

- network, network, network... keep building my business and make connections with people I can employ/subcontract to to ease the work load for when I need to take time away from my business when our baby finally decides to make their grand entrance into our lives.

...well I joined a networking group in April 2011... so check that off the list.

- photography workshop - the flight is already booked I just need to pay for the workshop next and I'm laughing... I can't wait to take off from my routine and meet some new and exciting photographers the end of August. And of course spend time with my "big sister" relaxing.... workshop is 3 days then I'll have another 7 to chill and process the info from the workshop too :-)

... this was a great trip. I didn't end up doing the workshop but had an amazing time with my "big sister"... I'm heading to see her again in less then 3 weeks

- build up business enough so we don't have to rent the student apartment in our basement come Sept.... I want to move my office into that room making it easier to meet with clients without having them walk through my home and worrying about how clean the kitchen is... ya know what I mean?

CHECK! Couldn't find a student renter in Sept. 2011 so another coat of pain and I'm not set up in the space and can see clients here... just wish it was big enough for photo shoots but whatever. 

- continued work with Daytona so we can walk past a dog without him mouthing off

Nope! Still mouthy

- have fun! take time out to enjoy my amazing husband... we have some little getaways and overnights planned for the summer, some camping etc so I'm looking forward to working on just being present and enjoying being able to do these things with him. We celebrated 5 years married this month and I think I fell in love with him even more that night. He means so much to me!
and of course....

6 years married and thankful I have him by my side and encouraging me along the way in all areas of our lives and careers. Biggest "holy crap!" for me/us this spring was him switching to the 6:30am class at crossfit (when I go) and us being able to work out together. I NEVER would have imagined I'd be in this place. We go together the first 3 mornings of the week for 6:30am

- baby, baby, baby... I just want to be pregnant and soon

... well as always a work in progress but feeling closer then ever with all the things we/I'm doing to get there...

2 posts in 1 day... look at me! lol.. I must be procrastinating on work.... lol

Thank you for the update, you cross my mind quite often and I wonder how things are going.

a) as always, keeping my fingers crossed that all these tweaks, changes and modifications end up with what you've always wanted.
b) crossfit, way to go! And working out with your husband must be wonderful :)

Keep us updated, we miss you.
