Monday Night: It's a Date


Aneesh and I both started back at work today after being off for several days.  So we decided to officially end our holidays and 2010 with a date night at Capital Grille, one of our favorite spots in Boston.   We sat the bar and reflected on 2010 and we discussed some of our goals and resolutions for 2011.  While Aneesh listed off his resolutions for 2011 I can honestly say I have not made any specific resolutions for 2011.  Last year my New Year's resolution was to figure out a way to be more creative and I came up with this blog idea in January and got it started by Spring. 

For this year, we talked about the idea of setting a joint resolution/goal for 2011.   Since we both have an interest in improving our photography skills, we decided to work on this goal together.  We end up getting so busy with our own careers and interests so having this joint goal will be a great way to spend some quality time together.   I hope by this time next year both of us will be able to use our camera in manual mode! Let's see how it goes.....

Cheers to 2011!

It's a great idea to have a common resolution so you can work on it together. Photography skill is so nice to have yet so hard to achieve by a layman. Have you considered taking a class? I certainly have. Worcester art museum offers various adult classes on digital photography and post-processing, and I have been thinking of taking one for years. :) Maybe this year?
Happy New Year and can't wait to see more beautiful pictures from you!

Happy new year! Joint resolution sounds good. Looking forward to seeing photos!

I'm not a big resolution maker (I DO make them, but they're more an ongoing list of things to aspire towards---I don't really time them for the new year), but I love the idea of a joint resolution. Looking forward to more pictures on your blog! :)

I don't think I've ever done New Year's resolutions believe it or not. Anyway, just wanted to say that I like those shoes! Wish I could pull those off!

This year, I'm writing in pencil instead of pen. I'm willing to let things take their course, and enjoy life to the fullest! Great idea to do something with your partner -- it's great motivation for follow-thru!

This is so great. Happy 2011.

Kristin said...

Mmmmmmm. Capitol Grille steaks rock my world!

Jess said...

Oh my gosh, how ironic. We basically have the same goal. I've been wanting to take photography classes for quite some time now, so my husband and I decided to sign up for classes starting at the end of the month. I'm so excited!!

Noelani said...

Working on my camera skills is at the top of my list!! My other resolution of being more healthy, made it less than a week:) I simply can not live with out mu nightly glass of vino.

Torrie said...

I love your goal, and the fact that it is a joint goal is such a good idea. I would strongly consider classes, and a good beginner photography book! Here is a link to a book that is highly recommended and I just purchased for my BIL- http://www.amazon.com/BetterPhoto-Basics-Absolute-Beginners-Taking/dp/081740502X/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I25OYVMC6R7WOR&colid=3BYMPTQABIAF2 (sorry so long!).
