Happy New Year!

I really do enjoy the new year and the opportunity to reset, reevaluate and reflect on what works and what doesn't work in my life.

2011 will be titled "The Year of Preparing for Transition" ...I have big plans for 2012 and need a year to be ready for those changes.

Last years resolutions were so good (and broad) that I plan on keeping them:
  1. You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect you to.
  2. The world is waiting for you to figure out what only you can contribute.
For the last 12 months I have been thinking, planning and organizing my new project for 2011...I started a new blog "The Wannabe" (link will be posted shortly). I still plan on using this blog to keep you up-to-date with the day to day activities of my life, but this new blog is intended for a larger audience.

The Wannabe is about figuring out how to do accomplish all the goals I want in my life and trying to inspire others to do the same. Initially, I will post at least once a week, as I slowly build my audience, and then eventually post three times a week.

I came up with this idea last year, but with all the activities and stresses in my life it fell to the bottom of my to-do list. This will be an exciting venue for me to really pursue my various passions and interests. The first major event that this blog will be tracking is the building of my very own electric guitar. In a week I will be joining some faculty members at my high school to build a guitar. Once I have built the guitar, than I will have to learn how to play it--I am really excited!

Besides my Wannabe blog, I plan on refining my teaching skills, growing my photography business, travel to India in June, Italy in December and hopefully China and Korea sometime in July/August. It will be a busy year, but I am excited by what is on the horizon.

I hope that this new year fills you with hope and excitement as well.

Also, here is my new look...I figured that this New Year deserved a new haircut...the new body will be coming soon as well.


  1. Krista you gorgeous girl ... I absolutely love your hair!! So, so cute. Happy New Year ... you have some fun trips coming up! I always look forward to your pics. You are so talented.

  2. Okay, it's nearly July and I'm way behind on my blogging upkeep. You have been up to so many amazing things--as always. You truly are an inspiration, and you look BEAUTIFUL. I love the new hair cut. I'm sad we didn't get to reconnect in May please come back to SLC for a visit. Or I'll come to LAS when it cools down a bit :). Stay safe in India!
