This time of year is my favorite for so many reasons. Cold weather makes us all snuggle a little closer together. Thanksgiving makes us more thoughtful about giving back and counting our blessings. The holidays bring family, friends, and laughter into our homes and my only complaint is that we can't live this way throughout the year. This week I have taken time just for myself (selfish I know) and it has given me time to just reflect and be still... After doing laundry, grocery shopping, and editing hundreds of images of course. I think we are all in the pursuit of stretching time to cram in everything on our to-do lists instead of just slowing down and clearing our calendar a bit. I'll be the first to admit - I fail miserably at this. My calendar has been about as full as my belly after Thanksgiving dinner but I am so amazingly blessed and thankful that it has been busy.
Turning a passion into a business has been exciting, challenging, crazy, and amazing all in one. I am so very grateful to all of my clients who have shared my passion with family and friends. It is such a joy to meet new people and see love in action whether it is between a couple to be wed or parents with their children. I love the feeling of sharing the milestones and special moments in your lives. My business has grown so quickly that I feel as if I have not expressed just how much I appreciate the love and support you all have given me. Nothing makes me happier than happy clients that adore their pictures and I look forward to capturing your special moments for years to come.
Not only am I thankful for my client family but my family and friends and friends as well. Y'all are absolutely the best. You all know that I am my own worst critic. so I thank you for bringing me up when I feel discouraged and spreading the word about my business. I love you all so dearly. I am thankful beyond measure for my husband, Morgan, who has supported me and my dreams from the very beginning. It means the world to me that you are as excited about this adventure as I am and I love you for it!
If you're still reading and hopefully thinking about all of the things you're thankful for, then my mission is complete. Here's to wishing you and yours the happiest of holidays and may it be filled with love, laughter, and lots of good wine... Cheers!
