In with the new year

The Boys on New Year's Eve
The Boys on New Year’s Eve
With new years come new resolutions (though mine is still 1024×768). The past year has been a whirlwind for me, and I’ve not been blogging or journaling or talking to friends and family as much as I’d like because there are things that Must Be Done. Or because I’m exhausted from doing the things that Must Be Done. As a result, there are a lot of small memories that slip through the cracks, because I haven’t written them down and I haven’t shared them with anyone else.

That experience of someone suddenly bringing up an old memory you haven’t thought of in years is a golden one. I want to plant more seeds for it.

I want to pour into my friends this year.

I want to share more with my family.

Excuses are easy, and time flies quickly. To help myself keep track of the passage of time as well as share more, my goal for this blog is to post a photo every week and write just a little bit about it.

This is the photo for the past week. It’s hard to believe NYE was just a week ago. With the weather at negative 13 (with a minus 35 windchill!) it’s also hard to believe that we celebrated it in California sitting outside around a fire! The guys sat around and smoked cigars, we made smores, and at midnight we lit fireworks and had champagne. If only every NYE could be that way…
