A Fresh Start

Here’s to a new year and a new start!

The end of last year was full of changes for me. The biggest being my graduation from UNL. The real world is approaching ever so quickly. I will be entering the field of education within a few weeks. I have a long term substitute teaching position lined up for a good portion of this semester. (It’s funny how when you are in school – and your profession revolves around the school calendar that you measure the year in semesters and it begins in August and ends in May!) Having spent all of Christmas break away from our apartment I’m spending my time off putting things back to normal and crossing some projects off my list!

As mom already shared – blogging wasn’t really a top priority for last year. We popped in and out. However, one of my goals for this year is to have a more regular presence on here – so ya’ll can keep up with what’s going on here in Lincoln. Here’s some other goals I have for the year:

  1. Take more pictures! As I was thumbing through pictures on my computer I realized that the last pictures I’ve really taken were those of Jake and I on our honeymoon. I used to take a ton of pictures in high school. My days there are practically lived out in my iPhoto. Pictures spark memories…and although I still have a good memory now it might not always be that way. Jake and my first Christmas as husband and wife has come and past…and gone undocumented. So this year I’m going to dig out my camera and snap away.
  2. Start Digital Scrapbooking Here’s yet another reason I need pictures…I might be a little late to jump on this bandwagon, but digital scrapbooking seems a lot less time consuming and a lot more cheap that actually using paper. I have started collecting freebies off the internet and hope to start experimenting with wedding photos. I think this will be a fun way to share with friends and family…all I need to do is print another copy.
  3. Blog Did I already mention this? I have a lot to share and a lot of ideas…they just never seem to make it here. All those posts when I say to check back for more detail and they NEVER appear…that’s probably an unfinished project waiting to be finished. Or life got too busy and I never followed through with my post – so Blog more.
