a new phase

in preparation for all the changes 2011 will bring/have already brought, i've decided to change the look of le blog a little and introduce the brand new look of grace farson photography!

please take a minute and check out the new photography portfolio [at] agfarson[dot]wordpress[dot]com.

it is still a work in progress and i'm just now working to understand the fundamentals of wordpress.


also, since this post is all about the new phase of my life . . . i feel like sharing a few of my new years goals. . . ever since i was little i have loved our family tradition of talking through our new years resolutions over the dinner table. i love getting inspired by all my friends and family at this time of year. even though the year has started off dramatically different than i had hoped, i know 2011 holds great surprises, adventures, and challenges!

here are a few things i hope to accomplish in 2011:

- survive on my own for 6 months abroad!
- return to a simpler way of living
- journal and draw daily
- teach yoga and meditation {at home [davidson and chapel hill] and abroad}
- have my qt and meditate every morning
- make friends abroad and at school/ reconnect with other friends
- stay in touch with family and friends throughout the year {esp. while i'm away}
- learn more about truly organic living {i hope to learn how to milk a cow, shear a sheep, plant new varieties of plants, take care of a beehive, etc. . . i really cannot wait for this!}
- start memorizing isaiah 58
- memorize a poem
- run again! {2x/wk}
