…Thank you EVERYONE who entered in my calendar give-away, I have picked the two winners: Amelia C. and Shawna G. There were some really lovely entries, I love hearing everyone’s resolutions, they almost exactly mirror mine ;o) Ditch soda is a good one Grace K. I did it a few years ago and am so proud of myself. Once I kicked I was able to (without hypocrisy) keep the soda out of my kids glasses too. I traded for unsweetened iced tea, in a jar. Everyone here calls it my urine sample ;o)
So anyway, Amelia C. entered twice and also first, her resolutions were: “keep calm and lactivate. (well what is the word for being an active activist anyway?)” and “Dance every day” yes, I’m going to do those too!
and Shawna G. said, “I resolve to be in more photos with my family. This is hard because I am a photographer and always try to weasel out of being in my photos!” This resolution is especially poignant for me, my mother passed away in February, 2011 and she left behind beautiful photo albums and scrapbooks that are full of photos of everyone else. She was so rarely in photos, it’s making me and my father very sad. So, not only is this resolution a good one for our own self-esteem, it a gift to our children for the future.
A while ago I saw a blog post that said stop right now and take a beautiful picture of yourself. You will only be this age, on this day, in this moment. Smile! I asked for some glamour shots of myself for my birthday I was so inspired, but didn’t ever get them. So I think I should adopt this resolution, too.
It seems like Rafflecopter worked in the end, so there will be another cool giveaway this week. You guys are going to LOVE this one!
Sorry to everyone who didn’t win a calendar, kisses and hugs!
ps. I’m taking the cost of shipping off of the calendars again, hope that helps! It’s the economy baby!
