a better version of me

Finally home from our Christmas vacation, I am able to sit here in the quiet, for just a moment.
There are many pictures to edit, Christmas decorations to take down, and the morning will come far too soon. 
I don't typically write about myself, mostly about my sweet family and the fierce love that I have for them.
Yet, I feel compelled at the start of this New Year to take one little slice of time. I am here, after all. 
I'm also not one for New Year's resolutions, mostly because I never follow through.
There's so many things that I would love to change, so many for the better.
I'd love to:
go to bed earlier,
rise earlier,
be punctual.
I'd love to:
be more patient with my children,
spend more time with my husband,
go to church on Sunday's,
read more books.
I'd love to:
take better care of the one body I've been given
push myself harder in my career,
worry less.
I'd love to:
write more letters,
print more pictures both for my home and in books,
create actual DVDs of all the video footage that we have and actually watch it,
print my blog to books for the last two years.
I'd love to:
grow in my photography by leaps and bounds,
finish my 365 instagram and Project 52 (more on these later).
Yes, I do realize that these sound just like New Year's resolutions, 
perhaps they are. Yes, I truly do intend to follow through.
What I'm really seeking amongst all the change, is not to change who I am...
but to be
a better version
of me.

  1. Oh my sweet sweet Kristin. You are my baby and I love you with all my heart. I love all the things that you are and what you will become. You are just so perfect to me....so talented...so loving....so like me in a lot of ways...I hope you think that is a complement? I am crying right now...but tears of joy...because I am so blessed to have you as a daughter. I am so proud of you! You are amazing. Thank you for being you! Mommy


It's a beautiful noise-And it's a sound that I love- And it makes me feel good-Like a hand in a glove -Yes it does, yes it does-What a beautiful noise
