A New Year and a new set of goals.  It is always interesting look back at last years goals to see what I had succeeded at and what I had failed at.  A lot of my goals from last year and similar if not the same as this year because I still need to work on them to make it a habit and lifestyle change.  I started with my Photography goals first.  A few are shooting goals, blogging goals, and gear goals!  Next, I talk about a few personal goals.  A lot of these goals are also on my on-going to-do list.  My house projects like the kitchen, living room and roans office/man cave will probably take a few years to complete, but I still keep them on there as a reminder.  Take a look 🙂
