What’s Your Resolution? | Contest

Tonight, the clock will ring midnight and people across the world will celebrate; some with fireworks, some arm-in-arm with their dearest love and others with a glass of champagne and a party hat. Or all of the above.

And tomorrow begins the annual ritual of resolution-making. I’m not typically a huge fan. After all, why is it that January seems to be the busiest months for gyms and it seems to taper off eventually? There’s nothing worse than the feeling that you didn’t accomplish your goal. Resolutions as promised determination to accomplish something are awesome. Resolutions for the sake of making them or for tradition, well, not so much. It’s why I usually don’t make them unless they’re something I’m willing to work hard to achieve. Failure = Bad. My perfectionist little self can’t stand it.

This year, Jamie and I are taking the leap and putting our New Year’s resolution out there for the world to see. Literally. You see, a month ago, Jamie and I were sitting in our office when we realized that if and when we were ever blessed with a baby (no, we’re not pregnant), we have no room for him or her. In this large house with only two people living in it, we have no room for a tiny little baby. We have too much stuff. Therefore, we have vowed to take the year, hopefully less, and go through the house, room by room, and get rid of everything we don’t use or need. We started on our first room last night. And it feels gooood!

So now that you’ve heard my New Year’s resolution, I want to hear yours. And there’s something in it for you….a FREE photo shoot!

The fine print: The winning photo shoot can be redeemed for any type of shoot: couples/engagement, headshots, solo portraits, family, pets, children, maternity, newborn, boudoir, bridal session, etc. Pretty much whatever your glorious heart desires. Wedding photography is not eligible for this contest, but if you win and you are getting married, you can redeem your free photo shoot for a discount on your wedding photography. Photo shoot can take place anywhere in the Nashville surrounding areas. Travel costs are not included if the location you want for your photo shoot is elsewhere. Travel costs are especially negotiable if the location is any place I travel to frequently, i.e. New York City, Michigan, Wisconsin, St. Louis, etc.

So here’s how you enter (hint, it’s easy):

Yep. That’s it. I’ll accept entries until 11 p.m. CST on Friday, January 14. All the entries will be written on tiny pieces of paper and drawn out of a basket. The lucky winner will get a FREE photo shoot! What’s not to love?

Tannis - like you, i am not a fan of new year's resolutions. if i'm not motivated enough to do it already what is a 'new year' bringing to the table? nonetheless, i am drawn in by the allure of setting a goal and achieving it. Success is seductive. So the two I have landed on are planning and pictures. Planning: primarily meal planning. 4:30 too often finds me in a dinner making conundrum. there are other areas where some forethought would pay off, but i am starting with meal planning. (And yes, I know what we are having for dinner tomorrow…tilapia, potatoes and broccoli.) Pictures: (not a ploy) prior to 'going digital' 4 years ago, I would have pictures in albums before the event was over! : ) Having a roll of film just sitting there is supreme motivation. When you can enjoy the memories and smiles from your computer screen, the urgency is lost. The last 4 years of our family's life are trapped in a motherboard. That must change.
So…planning and pictures. I have my marching orders.

Blair - How fun! I am not making a resolution but more of a change. I have joined Jazzercise and and just planning on getting healthy. No goals just to feel better and eat smarter. I also want to relax and not worry so much, just take life as it comes and trust the Lord with it all!!!
We would love to win a photo shoot to take pictures with our new puppy!

Heather J - I hate resolutions so I decided to make sure that my goals were what I could accomplish. I am determined to continue to live frugally and follow the Dave Ramsey plan, be a little more patient with my husband, spend more time with my baby boy, ride horses as much as I possibly can and enjoy life to the fullest.
I would love to win this.. my baby boy needs some new pictures. 😉
P.S. I liked you on FB.

Katie - I'm all for resolutions. That said I have the hardest time keeping them. Well my resolution this year was to keep my resolution. I even started a week early! Since Christmas Eve I have lost 10 pounds and I hope to continue that, but the biggest thing is yet to come. I'm planning to move. I spent a beautiful week in South Florida and fell in love with it. Since then I have been carefully planning and making decisions about how to make this happen. I had never been happier in my entire life. It is quite the big resolution, but I have faith that I will stick to it and finally be my own person doing what I want to do! Ahhh…grown up life! Gotta love it!

Kristen - My resolution is to become a saver and stop living paycheck to paycheck. I'm excited about how God is going to transform many areas of my life through simple changes and stewardship.
