A Note on Goals

Goals are a pretty important thing to have in life. That’s the general belief anyway and from where I stand today, I hold that statement to be pretty much true. Goals are the foundation for future & happiness, and if you believe in your goals strongly enough they can be very powerful motivators. For example, it is a perpetual goal of mine to publish a post every weekday. Despite the sometimes lack of understanding others have as to why I even keep a blog, and despite the crazy busy-ness that is my life outside of maintaining this site, it’s still very important to me that I post something new once a day. It has been, and continues to be, a healthy challenge to myself to do something that I love—to write freely and of course, satisfy my inner shopper.

Sometimes if we’re lucky, within our original goals blossom more inspirations, more appreciations, and even other ambitions. It becomes an endless cycle, but the good kind. For me, I’ve discovered a newfound appreciation for photography. I’m intrigued by the knowledge and resources it takes to produce an image of quality and have set another goal to start photographing local interiors on my own and publishing them on the blog. Obviously there’s a learning curve involved so I expect this to take some time, but I’m nonetheless excited to pursue something new.

Today I feature someone who clearly has not only the interest and resources for quality photography, but the patience and eye for it too—Mike’s uncle Bob Wheaton of Wheaton Images. Any of his photos would look gorgeous framed and hung in the home.

This last one of the buildings is my favorite. I love all the colors.
