(She’s lovely and candid and I have a half-dozen listings that she has because don’t we all?)
1… get a passport.
2… settle on a business name and run with it.
3… teach Evan to read.
4… sell my work. Print it, frame it, exchange it.
5… plant a vegetable garden (and ya know, not kill it). Actually cook/eat veggies as opposed to letting them rot on the dining room table.
6… renovate something (successfully!) in my home.
7… go on a huge anniversary trip with my husband. Preferably, somewhere where you have to fly over an ocean to get to it.
8… go somewhere spectacular just to shoot with photographer friends (and I mean another country spectacular).
9… take Evan to Disneyworld.
10… make NICU bags for parents of new preemies. (Kinda like these)
11… write a children’s book.
12… get a present from Tiffany’s in a Tiffany’s box.
13… pay off all my debts. (And not acquire them again)
14… make a couple more attempts at talking my husband into another child without driving him into the mad house.
15… create Evan’s family tree. (An comprehensive one and a beautiful, handmade one)
16… start a new family tradition.
17… photograph the Aegean Sea and Islands and surrounding countries. (Maybe combining with #7 or #8?)
18… read a series of books of historical accounts and the origins of the major and minor religions.
19… create a legal will.
20… loose 30ish pounds.
21… change someone’s mind to the better.
22… stop drinking pop altogether (or Coke if you’re from Georgia) / (or soda or soft drinks if you’re from other places).
23… host Thanksgiving dinner and cook everything from scratch.
24… have a surprise party (but someone else would have to throw it because I would know and…nevermind).
25… take Evan camping.
26… adorn my walls with photographs everywhere.
27… raise $5,000 for the March of Dimes ($945 down, $4,055 to go!)
28… host a kick-ass party. One where you watch the sun rise before you head to bed.
29… stay at a super swanky hotel. Eat at one of their super swanky restaurants. Order lots of room service.
30… photograph the stars with an open shutter.
31… participate with Evan in a charity event every year. Each year something different.
32… have my portrait done. Like it.
