The New Year is here… and so are my Resolutions…

New Year’s Eve means that after all the celebrating is over…

We get to have a fresh start once again.

For some reason I am extra hopeful and excited about this year.

2010 was really good for me…

….but I want 2011 to be even better.

I want to be even better.

So I made a visual list, because I am a visual person, with some of my favorite photos from 2010…

…to remind myself of things that I need to do in 2011, in order to be a better: friend, wife, daughter, sister, photographer, human.

And here is that list…

In 2011, I, Paige Green, need to remember to do a lot more…..

(…ahem… this is not what you are thinking. This means I need to wear more slippers, of course.)

(…this one means I need go to the dentist more often.)

(…this means I need to learn how to cook.)


Happy New Year.
