January Desktop Background

I’m really feeling the fresh start of a new year, more so I think than ever before. I don’t know what it is…it’s like I’ve really given myself permission to start anew on things I’d like to change in my life, and things I’d like to be better at. I wouldn’t call them resolutions so much as things-I’ve-been-wanting-to-change-for-a-while.

At any rate, that led me to want to do a “beginnings” theme for this month’s desktop. I didn’t include a calendar this time (it just felt too crowded), so let me know if you guys would prefer to have it back in the future!

When I first found this quote, I got all excited thinking it was by one of my favorite photographers, but then I realized that was Julia Margaret Cameron (read a great writeup on her by my shutter sister Nicole Rae here). Turns out Julia Cameron is an author. Ah well, still a good quote!

Hope you all had a lovely New Years. Are you a resolutions person, or do you do better with goals throughout the year?
