Looking Ahead to 2018

We are literally less than a week away from the New Year. Can you believe it?  Though it seemed to have flown by, 2017 had lots of memorable moments. For example, the local heros in Florida and Houston during one of the craziest hurricane seasons. There was a total eclipse across the country that had everyone amazed. Locally, Crosstown Concourse opened and the city of Memphis recently removed Confederate statues from the local parks. We also got a new President. That's about all I can say about that. 

Each year, millions make New Years resolutions. I've never really gotten into them much because I know I would just forget them by February. This year I have decided to really try to put forth the efforts to bring my resolutions to light. So here are my New Year's resolutions. 

Spend more time with family and friends.

This is a big one for me. I've been so consumed in work and building several projects over this past year and feel that I've neglected family and friends. These are the same folks that encouraged me to start and to stick to my dreams. I need to make sure I carve out time to cultivate those relationships. 

Drink more water

Another big one for me. I don't drink nearly the amount of water I should. I'm not getting any younger and my health, both physically and mentally, need to be a top priority. I think drinking more water should help a little, even though I don't like the taste. 

Make better decisions.

This applies to so many things. I'm human and I don't always make the best decisions. Be that in my work life or my love life. I've been hurt and I've hurt others. I've seen the aftermath of both and it's not something I want to the a recurring theme in my world. Better decision making is key. 

Travel more

I think this is on everyone's New Year's resolution list. I have traveled a lot in my life, but I need to see more of the world before I leave. Even if it's just a turnaround trip to St. Louis for a weekend food tour. I need to travel more. I bought a brand new car in 2017. I should probably put it to good use. 


That's about all I got right now. I may add to this list as the week progresses. As a matter of fact, I'm 100% sure I will because I'm pretty indecisive. Oh, I also plan to take more pictures. Especially more of myself. I don't prefer to be on camera but I need to do better. 

Keep in mind that I know very little about fashion, but in case anyone wants to know the details of these images, here they go: 

Jacket: Ben Sherman

Jeans: Old Navy

Boots: Sperry 

Camera: Sony a7ii

Lens: Zeiss 55mm F1.8
