First off, Happy New Year! I hope it was extra rad.
I love the night before the new year, I love the anticipation, I love the count down and I love the fresh start. To say the least, we’ve been drool’n for the new year. We couldn’t wait for it, but that’s not to say that 2010 was no good. 2010 was phenomenal it brought a lot of change for us; most of which was good. I have a good feeling about 2011 too. We already have a lot planned, some new experiences( a few lengthy vacations to places I have not been) a lot of anticipation for the up-coming wedding season with Nikki and hopefully some good changes with us here at Ty Foster Photography.
The Herd and I decided to make a new years resolution a month earlier; we decided to eliminate all the extra ‘stuff’ in our lives and try and curb our wanting for new stuff. Ya know what I am talking about, all the redundancy in our lives; extra clothes, extra books, extra computer stuff lying around, extra shoes, extra furniture…….. just extra stuff. We have already donated 2 bags of clothing a whole bunch of coats, eliminated a book case and purged a bunch of junk. I can say that so far we are sticking with it and it feels wonderful. What’s your new years resolution?!
Have an extra rad first Monday of the year!!
We hope that your Christmas, Chanukah and Kwanzaa is everything that you wanted it to be; and may the new year bring the rejuvenation that you have been looking forward too!
See ya’ll on the flip side!
The more people I have met, the more dogs I have pet, the more I see how fitting this quote is. Dogs are mans(and ladies) best friends and they have sculpted their owners lives more than they may see. Sometimes the biggest change comes from the smallest influences, be it a wagging tail after a terrible day at work, or a cold nose in the morning to wake you up, or perhaps just plain ‘ol good companionship. It’s crazy to think how the choices you make in life effect the future so much. If Tech had never become part of our family I know for sure that I would; be a lot less fit because he most certainly ramped up my mt. biking, have a much tougher time getting out of bed, be without a business. Tech has sparked a lot of things in my life just by being Tech.
I received a bunch of stories from people for the chance to win a free dog session. Nearly impossible was the task I had at hand to choose a winner. I read these stories as soon as they came in, then this weekend I printed them all out and read them again. After much deliberation I whittled the list down to five. Now these five were amazing, each were moving, emotional and to choose just one would have been impossible. So impossible so that I have decided to give away three sessions away instead of one(isn’t that what the season of giving is all about!?). The three winners ,I felt, really demonstrated how positive an impact a dog can have on a family, and how much positive change there can be for both parties involved. Trust me when I say I deliberated on the choice of three all weekend long.
Those three winners are:
Mark + Daisy
Allison + Stella
Angela + Nella.
Congratulations to all three of you!!! You’re stories along with all the others were excellent.
I also wanted to honestly thank everyone for submitting a story, it was a real pleasure to have read all of them.
