Sunrise on 2018

I don't really do New Years Resolutions anymore. I have found that they mostly do not work. What I try to focus on instead is changes of mindset and routine that can lead to more permanent change. This year my focus is going to be on improving my skillsets. I want to become proficient with my handgun, I want to learn first aid skills, and I want to become healthier. All of these things will require discipline and I think the best way to acquire discipline is to do things that take discipline. So the first thing I am going to work on this year is getting up before the sun everyday....starting today. 

I woke up and drove to the prettiest place I could find to watch the sun rise and welcome in the new year. It was a perfect start to 2018 for me. I hope to do a lot more exploring this year, it is one of the few things that brings peace to my soul. I hope you had a great start to the new year and I hope you have the discipline to make some awesome things happen for yourself this year. 


For a little while now, I have been somewhat bored with photography. I haven't had my camera on me all the time like I used to, I forget to charge the battery, and I have been missing shots that I later wish I I started shooting with my iPhone again. I forgot how simple and fun it is to use. There is nothing in the way of the shooting experience, you just point it at the picture you want and press the button. I think all creatives go through phases like this, and I know in a few weeks I'll be shooting with my A7ii again, but right now I am having a blast. 

Yesterday we celebrated 5 years of being married! It's seems like we just got married and like we have never not been married all at once. @courtneyrgilmer is by far the coolest, most beautiful, most loving, and most fun person and I know and am amazed that she is gonna be the mom of my little girl. I love you baby! Here's to a lifetime of adventure together.
