Sometimes, I think we live so much in the moment that it’s hard to see how far we have come. You know what I mean? I have days where I feel like I’m not progressing AT ALL in both my photography business and my personal life. For me, it’s been good to sit down every once in a while and reflect on everything that has happened and everything that I have experienced. I’m a huge believer in traveling, living life to its fullest and traveling some more. I recently went back through this year’s photos (for Christmas present reasons) and while working on that project, I was able to see everything I have done/accomplished/experienced/visited this year. Here are just a few of the highlights:
The year started off pretty amazing with a trip to Vegas for WPPI (which I will be attending again next year) and made some of the most amazing friends.
I embraced my “child-at-heart” personality and took a trip to Sea World for my birthday.
After my poor little truck that I had been driving since I turned sixteen died on me, I bought my first brand new car (it was a big deal)!
I experienced the circus for the first time.
I took David to go visit my college and see a Texas Tech football game.
I went to New York City for the first time and took my mom with me.
Visited South Carolina for a quick weekend.
Went on day outings with David such as the zoo
and Renaissance Festival
where I fell in love with glass blowing, and am now on a search for the perfect set of glass blown tumblers.
And let’s not forget that I got to enjoy another year with two of the most loyal companions I could ever dream of (let’s face it…not all dogs would put up with this).
