Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

New Year's resolutions

What's your resolution? I have to admit, I didn't even think about making one this year! I know that I have many "areas for improvement", as they say in the corporate world, so I'm sure I can come up with something to work on. ;^) Meanwhile, Pat has already completed one of his resolutions: to clean up his home office. It had gotten terribly cluttered over the last few years, but it only took him one day to clean it all up and get rid of the things he doesn't need (of course his desk is still a mess, but one thing at a time, people!). We made a stop at the ARC Thrift Store at 19th and Uintah on Monday to donate his unwanted items. I love the ARC. It serves a very worthy purpose. I donate there all the time, and I also shop there all the time. It's a win/win!

Also, as for those electronics that the ARC cannot accept (such as broken household devices, or televisions and computer monitors/components), or laptops/desktops/hard drives that you need to get rid of but aren't suitable for donation because of privacy concerns, Blue Star Recyclers will accept, properly destroy (as needed) and ethically recycle them. The lovely thing about Blue Star Recyclers is that, like the ARC, they employ people with disabilities. If your New Year's resolution is to get more organized, what a great way to do it while helping others too.

Never made one in my life. At least not for the new year.

ARC doesn't turn up here, but there are equivalent organizations.
