2012 is...

the year to LEARN.

I will graduate in March with my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN).  It's been over a two year process, and I will be SO HAPPY to be finished!

For Christmas, I bought myself the Canon Rebel camera that I have been lusting after for a long time.  I am determined to LEARN everything I can to master it and take some rocking pictures.

Since I got the camera, I also bought Photoshop Elements 10, along with the "Classroom in a Book" guide to help LEARN the program.  I will conquer my computer-ignorance and figure this out in 2012.

My sister, Michelle, and I are talking about taking a photography class together this summer, but even better than that, we are planning a road trip to visit with Rebecca Jo in Indiana, so she can teach us a thing or two that she has learned since starting her own photography business.  We can't wait!

Another goal for 2012 (other than the typical "lose 15 pounds") is to vacation at a "new to us" spot and LEARN all about it.  Not sure where or when we'll go, but an adventure it is sure to be.

Do you have a word of the year for 2012?  Any goals or dreams?  Secrets to losing weight (other than exercise and diet...sigh)?

Happy New Year, blog friends!  May 2012 be the best year yet!

Not to be too blunt, but I may have peed on myself with excitement at seeing the plans for the road trip :) I get giddy everytime I think about it... haha!

Praying 2012 is full of blessings for your whole gang!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Bummer that you had to work last night, but hopefully it was quiet. Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for checking out my blog and leaving words of encouragement. Learning a lot about you through your own site, and excited to see what we have in common. Sleep well!

OMG. Rebecca Jo, you crack me up. Can't wait to meet you.

Heather, I can't wait to see what "new to you" vacation spot you pick this year so my family can go next year! Our last two have followed yours.

I also will pick your word for this year. I am already LEARNING more than I though I could this past week about Photoshop.

ps... don't think of it as dieting and exercise. Think of it as eating healthy and stress relief! Worked for me.

Happy New Year Heather. Hope it's our best year ever.

Happy New Year. I'm learning to knit, and I'm loving it. I should have done this long ago.

Learning keeps us moving. :)

Sounds like you have a fantastic year in store! You already saw that my theme for the year is enough as abundance. I too would like to learn about Photoshop and my "new" camera. I found some Pinterest tutorials that I'm going to try to learn from.
