Happy 2018!

in Photo of the Day

I completely missed taking – let alone sharing – a Christmas photo of the family, or even posting a holiday greeting here on the blog. 2017 was just sort of like that, you know?

But here we are in a brand new year, and it’s the coldest new year’s day ever in Ottawa, so we thought we’d celebrate by making some frozen bubbles, as one does when it’s near -40C with the wind chill.

Happy 2018!

And I thought I’d share this greeting from the inimitable Neil Gaiman, because it seems like not only a lovely new year’s greeting, but also a pretty succinct summary of what I’d like to achieve in 2018:

‘May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.’

Wishing you and your family a happy 2018. I am looking forward to an amazing 2018!

Thinking back, looking forward in support of Conceivable Dreams It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since we celebrated our first Christmas with Tristan – in the emergency room, as it turned out, as the poor guy had a wicked UTI and a spiking fever that saw us bundling him off to the University Hospital ER in...
  4. Photo of the day: Lucas on the porch One of my favourite models, helping me practice my on-camera fill flash techniques on the porch today. I have been swearing for years that I would learn off-camera flash. I have taken at least two workshops, read many books and countless blog posts. I’ve bought umbrellas, gels, softboxes, and modifiers,...
  5. Happy @ Christmas I have been thinking about doing some sort of gratitude journal, maybe in a tumblr or something. I just have so much in my life for which I’m thankful, and it’s nice to pay a little lip service to God or the Universe or your deity of choice, I think,...
