Resolutions + A Wallpaper

Happy New Year!

Now that we’ve gotten another overhyped party out of the way, I’m excited to start 2011. (The bitterness for the celebrations: they always feel mandatory, and end up somewhere on the spectrum of “fun”, but the street car wait & ride home last night at 3AM made me question if I should retire from celebrating at midnight every December 31 officially).

Onto 2011. This year, I promise I will make some serious changes in my life. There are some plans in motion to make sure that we get to see more of the world and enjoy life in different ways, and I can’t wait to share all the updates as they unfold. Of course, we’re also getting married in 2011, so it’s going to be a big year!

I also hope to blog a bit more often – coming up I’ll have a couple of regular “weekly columns” to make sure I have a good reason to write as much as I can.

Lastly, I want to make sure I continue to take many more photos! I’m going to be getting a new camera bag soon to help me tote around the camera a little more discreetly, and we’re swapping in for a different lens to play with, too. The last thing that I’m doing, that will hopefully help me update more often and take more pictures, is the monthly wallpapers.

Beginning of every month, I’ll post a photo wallpaper for download. So far, I’ve made them in two sizes only – my Mac and my work laptop. If you’re interested in having a resolution that’s right for your computer, just leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do next month. Suggestions for the following months would be super helpful, too!

    Love it! The turkey’s came out really well! I’m glad the visit to the cottage wasn’t a total waste in the end.

      @Jenn – it’s called Mariette Tryout, and yes, I’d love it if you did wallpapers too! Maybe we could post both of ours on both of our blogs? Give people a choice without too much work? ;)

      @Kasia – yes, the turkeys made for some lovely photos!
