happy new year | being not doing

Saturday, December 28, 2013

I've never been a fan of New Year's resolutions. to me it's just a lovely reminder of everything I SHOULD be doing but am NOT doing and probably WON'T consistently do in the upcoming year. Happy New Years. by the way you suck. too much negativity.

but I do like goals and lists. a lot. and i currently like hash tags. 

So instead of concentrating on doing I want to focus my time, energy, and motivation on being

i'm bursting with excitement.  

back in November we spent a lovely Saturday afternoon in downtown Omaha with one of my best friends Genai Patterson {she says she's not a photographer but I beg to differ} and three lovely assistants {my parents and Genai's little 7 month old Reitz} It was a blast goofing around a lot, taking 300+ pictures, and  then getting some delicious ice cream from Ted & Wally's.    

and here are the highlights.   

tis the season | merry christmas

apparently i love Christmas cards. i just discovered this fact about myself oh maybe 6 weeks ago when i started planning our {very first} Christmas card. we had pictures taken by Genai {click here to view} and i spent an entire Sunday afternoon creating the letter. Aaron informed me that I could download fonts {say what?! hello hours of looking at fonts} and i totally realized why people only send out {at the very most} one holiday update a year. i would cry if the norm was to do one of these with every holiday.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.
- Maya Angelou

silly me. i keep thinking that i've got it all figured out and can move on to the next thing. i don't even really know what "it" is. i mean it can't be life cause that would be totally hilarious and ridiculous if i really thought i had life figured out right?! 

anywho. I've become a chiropractor junkie. in my previous life i was always very skeptical of them. seemed like a scam. i imagined that they were all creepy, greasy old men who wanted your money as well as to do weird things to your spinal cord. i also imagined that you would puke every time you got adjusted. and there was a good possibility they might break your neck and you would be paralyzed for life. i'm quite the rational person.
