It’s spring and actually it feels like summer. It arrived overnight. Who cares if it snows on Tuesday like they’re predicting? (answer: we all do) This weekend we had the most glorious weather so far. Theresa + Jake were married on a warm April day in Tunkhannock, PA and threw the most beautiful barn reception at Friedman Farms.

A 2am arrival time back home left me spending yesterday recovering from both a long day of shooting and a late night. Going to bed around 10, I decided to start my week off right by making over my morning. I did something totally different, and after Daphne woke up at 5am I gave her some milk, put her back down and went for a run. I spent thirty minutes running through our little town, which was enveloped in darkness, enjoying the warm morning air.

My goals for this spring center around restructuring my time. For a long time I have just done the same things and I need to change them up and evaluate what works and doesn’t. Maybe that means I’ll start each morning with a run, or editing photos, or reading the Bible and praying. I’m not sure. This week I play to test out a few different morning routines, which of course means my nights and days are different as well. I’m already half way through the book What Successful People Do Before Breakfast and obviously that’s giving me a lot of ideas on how to start and where to change. So, without elaborating any further, here are a few of the spring goals I’ve set:

  • read What Successful People Do Before Breakfast & Talent is Overrated
  • time track for a week
  • go to bed before 11:30
  • try out different morning routines
  • make yogurt
  • mail 3 thoughtful gifts
  • find a workout accountability partner
  • plan may NYC trip + schedule a few sessions
  • work with fotofafa to get editing samples right
