Last post of the year - Happy New Year 2016

As my first complete year living in Vero Beach, Florida comes to an end, I thought I'd take a minute to reflect on 2015.

A friend of mine posted on Facebook today that her new years resolution was to quit posting about how great it is where she lives. (She lives Here in Vero Beach). That got me thinking and I need to do just the opposite.

For the past year I've done nothing but miss the weather, my friends and all that is California to me. As much as I miss California (Did I mention that?), I'm very lucky to live where I do. I'm close to the beach, have a great job and am finally starting to develop some relationships. I'm going to do all I can to post more images of the beauty, community, and what makes Vero Beach, The Treasure Coast and Florida a great place.

Below is a little something I read that really hit home and thought I'd share. I am truly so grateful and lucky to be where I'm at in my life. Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year!

As the year comes to a close. I take time for reflection. The new year is traditionally a time to release old thoughts and beliefs, launch new projects, and change old patterns.

I ask myself: What troubles from the past am I ready to release? What hurts am I ready to forgive? What experiences and relationships do I want to manifest in the new year?

I become still and turn within, opening my heart and mind to answers from the spirit of God within me. I prayerfully consider which steps are mine to take and remember to be patient with myself as I bravely try something new. Change happens one step at at time.

I am guided to an amazing new year.

Grateful for Today

Checking my email this morning, I ran across an email from Nasim Mansurov at,  a blog that I read on a regular basis. A great site for tutorials, gear reviews and deals. Worth checking out if you're a photography enthusiast.

He posted a beautiful video called "Gratitude". A short film by Louie Schwartzberg. I found it so moving that I thought I'd share it with you.

It's that time of year when we all get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Holidays, and we need to remember to be grateful for today.

Happy New Year!
