January 5, Happy New Year From Colorado

Happy new year everyone! Do you have any resolutions for 2012? If so, how are they going on Day 5?

I wouldn’t consider these resolutions, but I’ve started training for a half-marathon that will take place on St. Patrick’s Day in Moab, Utah. It feels great to be in training again! I am also doing Kris Carr’s 21 Cleansing Diet, which to me means taking great care of myself, juicing, being a vegan and eating mostly fresh/raw veggies. That is going great except for one little thing. I thought giving up cheese and yogurt would be hard, but they are nothing compared to kicking the coffee habit. I am down to just over a half a mug a day and will continue to ween myself off of it. I suppose I should have weened myself off before I started, but I had no idea just how addicted I am  to my morning cup! To help make up for it, I feel I can eat tons of avocados, which always make me happy. I also have high hopes for home projects this year. I’ve been going through closets/cabinets room by room to get rid of STUFF. It feels so good. Then I will conquer the ignored home to-do list, like refinishing some furniture, look into new carpet, etc, etc. Exciting stuff, huh?

But I am REALLY excited for what 2012 will mean for Susannah Storch Photography and Chloe Pet Photography. Instead of editing images and writing blog posts, I have been organizing/streamlining so that I can focus on photography and marketing. If you guys have any feedback or ideas on my website/blog/photocart/promotions, I am always happy to hear it.

On a final note, I did decide to do another 365 project, although I guess it is technically a 366 this year because of the extra day in February. This means I will be taking one photograph per day, like I did in 2010. The current 365 project can be viewed on my Tumblr site; I’d love it if you visited it once in a while. Below is the beautiful sunrise I hustled to capture two days ago.

So happy 2012! I hope all of you have a most wonderful year.

    gorgeous–the colors are the same as the sunset we saw driving into Boulder on Dec. 28–it seemed I was on a movie set

    Gorgeous! The sky looks purple (at least on my monitor) and I love it!

    I know! Crazy colors. I didn’t even do anything in editing…this is the way the sky looked.
