In my family, we always celebrate the "big" holidays, but we often find reason to celebrate more neglected holidays as well. Like Groundhog Day. My aunt is famous in our family for celebrating Groundhog Day. She has parties, she calls to wish us Happy Groundhog Day. We love it. Though New Year's is a very celebrated holiday, it's not always celebrated with gifts. But I'm here to change that with a couple suggestions for you.
New Year's Gift #1: Photos

New Year's Gift #2: LDS Temple Posters
Earlier this year, I had a specific verse of scripture stuck in my head. Stuck. Maybe it's because I was photographing so many temples. Maybe it's because I was having a hard time getting my dishes done and I didn't feel like my own house was a house of order. But I thought that maybe if I could have that scripture in my view during the day, it would inspire me to get my dishes done. To create the kind of home I want my home to be. So, a few weeks ago in the spirit of new starts and resolutions I wanted to make for the new year, I made this from one of my Boston Temple photos:
Then, some really nice friends came to my house and they liked the poster, so I decided to make some more. They are available in my Zazzle store and can be ordered directly from there and shipped directly to you. I have posters created for the Boston, Bountiful, Draper, Manhattan, Oquirrh Mountain, Salt Lake and Washington D.C. temples. I'll keep making more as I have the opportunity to photograph more temples.

Plus, the 10% off through SmugMug works on any of my photos, including the LDS Temple galleries, which can be seen by clicking here: LDS Temple Photos
I've recently added galleries for the Draper Temple:
And the Oquirrh Mountain Temple:
So, Happy New Year! And Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! And Groundhog Day! And whatever else you'd like to celebrate!
*Updated to add: There are now two more Salt Lake City Utah LDS Temple posters in the Zazzle gallery. They're vertical orientation.
