Happy New Year to all of you!
2012 was an amazing year. Among other things,
my daughter graduated from high school
We had "the greatest vacation ever"
(according to our kids)
Disney World was such a blast.
I "dyed" my hair pink to honor an amazing woman, Lori Anderson
Sent my daughter to college
(how exactly did that happen???)
My son started high school
My hubby turned 50, retired after 25 years on the Metropolitan Police Department
and will start his "new" job shortly.
(no pictures of this....)
Christmas was filled with friends and family, the tree, the decorations,
and the fun of having everyone around.
We welcomed 2013 in quietly last night
with a nice dinner and a few episodes of Community
(seriously, one of the funniest shows!)
This year will be a big year for me, personally and professionally!
I have found that I am drawn to my camera more and more
these days, don't worry, the beads will always call my name.
I have loved being able to do this,
I can't even begin to tell you the joy it brings me.
I have decided that I want to do this professionally, like a grown up! :)
I took the step and have filed for a business license with the
state of Maryland and am awaiting it.
It felt sooo right! More than my beads.
My heart is so full with the excitement and
possibility of this adventure.
Not going to lie, I am terrified at the same time.
But, I am ready to take that first step.
I have so much to learn and welcome it with an
open heart and mind.
I know that being able to make this my full time
job will take time, I am giving myself four years to do this.
At that point, my daughter will be graduating from college and my
son will be headed to college, and
hubby will be four years into his new career.
I have had some amazing friends who have agreed
to help and support me on this journey.
Thank you Jeannie, Karen, Kathleen, and Kelley!
My friend Kelley Wenzel of Pear Tree Photography had the
most wonderful saying the other day,
"May you chase a dream you never thought possible and
realize you can reach it."
I am dreaming and reaching!
I hope you will stick around and go on this adventure
May 2013 be filled with joy, happiness, health and may you
achieve all your goals!
