Happy New Year!

January 5, 2009

I took a brief break from the internet over my four day weekend. It sure will be tough staying at work 5 days in a row after 3 weeks of 4-day weekends. The holidays were wonderful for us. Matt and I took the entire weekend off after New Year’s Eve. We needed a break from everything. We did a few things around the house (or I should say “room”). I’ve been thinking of my goals for 2009. I will post something about that soon. But I thought I’d write a summary of 2008. Here it is:


2008 In Review:

The Bad:
-Matt tore his ACL and had ACL reconstruction surgery
-I got into a serious car accident
-We bought a car that needed brand-new tires, a new catalytic converter, and a miraculous smoke smell remover
-Matt cracked two teeth and I cracked two fillings
-We stupidly got a puppy named Petey
-My computer died


The Good:
-We got a puppy named Petey! He’s so cute (now that he’s potty trained)!
-I officially started my own business
-We both still have jobs
-I attended my first photography workshop
-We celebrated our first wedding anniversary
-We paid off $18k on our student loans – which also means we *could* have bought a house this year if we didn’t choose such expensive schools…
-We finished my website


There is so much to do and plan this year. I just signed up for the Shoot with Beckstead workshop in Tampa. I was bummed in December when I couldn’t muster the funds to go to the workshop in Birmingham. Having a workshop so close by made up for it!  So Matt and I will be sitting down soon and going over everything about this new year. I can’t wait to get started on some more shoots!
