My husband sure knows how to woo me 🙂 I got a small bouquet of flowers which I broke up into 3 vases 🙂 I LOVE arranging flowers! And they smell yummy…a little herb-y. I have no idea what kinds of flowers they are, and I’ve never seen the purple ones before.
This month’s theme is Love or Leap. I think love is the BEST emotion to capture 🙂 It makes my heart sing to see people in love, showing love, being loved. Today, I went to a 1st Birthday Party for my friend’s daughter. Lil N played and loved and was loved by everyone! 🙂 Here are 2…both with her daddy…in the bottom one, Dad is only hands, but look at N’s face!!!! 🙂
To add to my first 3 resolutions for 2012, I’m adding 2 more.
#4 Reduce, Reuse, Recycle more diligently. I’ve been reading this book called, “Go Green, Live Rich” by David Bach. It’s really well written (which I like), and it has a bunch of facts about how much we, Americans, waste. Did you know that the entire USA uses 8.2 million barrels of oil/day = amount that Saudia Arabia produces in 1 day (Bach). That’s absurd!
#5 Save my dollars and cents! We’re leaving Okinawa…SOON (I promise), and we’re in for a rather rude awakening when we return to the States. No matter where we go, we’ll need 2 vehicles, a new house (security deposit, 1st/last months rent, pet deposit), traveling money, possible kenneling fees, etc. It’s going to a very horrible and expensive transition if we don’t start saving now!
This year I am going to do something different…I’m going to follow through with a photo challenge. And I found the perfect one! MCP Project 12 (http://www.mcpactions.com/blog/2012/01/01/mcp-project-12) fits in so well with my personality and time schedule. However, today as I was taking my picture for this month’s theme, I realized that it really does not take that much time to snap a few pics and then edit. Therefore, my resolution is twofold. I’m also going to try to submit multiple pictures per theme to get my creativity flowing. So I suppose this first Project 12 entry is three-fold…3-in-1.
#1 – Reduce the amount of clothes I have. I seriously have TOO MANY. And I will take the unneeded clothes to the flea market first…then I will donate the rest. I need to recoup my losses, and I’m saving up for a new lens! 🙂
#2 – Participate in this photo challenge. It gets the creative juices flowing!
#3 – Stop procrastinating!
My picture definitely represents all of these resolutions. Don’t worry, I have more. It seems I’m meant to make resolutions this year since it keeps coming up!
I edited my picture using MCP Actions’ Mini Quick Pick Looks – “Remember When” (hopefully this mountain will be a thing of the past!)
