Hope everyone had a great start to their year!
January was a full month! Here's a recap!
✔️ 1. Finish all sessions left from 2014. - Officially finished this last week!
✔️ 2. Photograph a wedding. - It was lovely and it was my first wedding to shoot some film at! Whoop Whoop!
✔️ 3. Finish Lara Casey's powersheets. - Finally- I never thought this day would come!
4. Finish Painting our livingroom. - It's almost** done... :-)
✔️ 5. Make a financial plan for 2015. - Took one HUGE step- needs a few little more steps along the way.
6. Make new workflow board or binder system- yep, didn't happen...
✔️ 7. Revamp SBP collections. - I've never been so proud of my collections before! So excited for 2015!
8. Blog 1 wedding from last year. - Yep, totally failed.
9 Blog some film sessions. - I did blog some film, but not whole sessions. I have SO MUCH MORE to share! Check out my instagram feed to see more- I basically have only posted recent film images on there because that's what I've been excited about lately.
✔️ 10. Revamp portfolio. - Did some, but still needs more attention.
11. Finish Welcome packet stuff. - ALMOST DONE
✔️ 12. Call or hand write thank you's for christmas gifts.
✔️ 13. Celebrate 2-year anniversary with my wonderful husband! - So fun and relaxing and needed!
14. Submit a wedding or shoot to Cottage Hill. (I'm terrible with submitting things) - Yeah, I'm still terrible at making time for this...
15. Start working on gathering tax stuff. - Does starting to "mentally gather" stuff count? :-P
Well, there you have it folks. I did a pretty good job, but definitely didn't get everything done that I wanted to. But you know what, there's so much grace! I don't have to be upset b/c my hope isn't in getting all these awesome things done to feel good about my life. Thank you Jesus!
So here's to a new month and new goals!
