January in Review

“Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past.”Henry Ward Beecher

With January comes the start of a new year. Here’s a quick look back at 10 of my favorites photos of the month before moving on to the rest of 2010.
