resolved …

Washington DC 541e 

I’ve been reading all your blogs, and I have to say – I am inspired.  What an amazing group of people you all are!  I see so much beauty, resolutions, and good intentions that I can’t help but feel motivated.  I love reading about your goals, and your ideas.  So I now have a ton of good things bouncing around in my head.  Ideas.  A little creative itch that may just involve a trip to the art store this week for some fresh paints.  And on the last day of 2010, I decided it wasn’t too late to start working on one of my goals for that year.   I just love fresh starts and new beginnings.

As for the photo – thank goodness for greenhouses on cold winter days to warm my heart and toes. 

Happy New Year to all my inspirational friends out there!

Best,

Stephanie

  1. Great post. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who hasn't fully decided on my resolutions, but here we are on day 3 of the year and I've kept the ones that I did make so far. LOL! 3 whole days.

  14. What a beautiful flower shot to make me smile this afternoon! Happy New Year to you! I normally don't make full-fledged resolutions but there are a few things on your list below that are on my mind - especially the task of uncluttering!

  15. Hi, Stephanie -
    I came here from Kim's Daisy Cottage - and am I ever glad I did! I love your photos and enjoyed reading a bit of your doings. I'll definitely be back again often! One question: what camera and len(s) do you have? I'm a budding photographer, too, and wanting to upgrade my camera and lenses. I'd love to know what you are using - it's doing an awesome job!
