the best year yet.

i once heard that new year's eve is one of the most hopeful nights of the year.  hope for what is to come.  hope that this year will be better than the last.   the clock strikes twelve and magically the year before is gone with nothing but the future before you.  no looking back.

people take today to look back and remember that good... and the bad.  dare i be like everyone else?  mark this day in the sand, draw my line, and move forward?  today seems like as good a day as any.  to set goals, dream, and plan for 2012.

first a look back. 
 in terms of personal life it has been the best year of my life.  its so girly and cliche but so true - i married my love. 

marriage has been the best & hardest thing i have ever done.  but i am beyond grateful for this man.  he is my teammate, lover, and best friend.  i am so excited for all God's plans for us in the new year.

professionally things have grown more than i never expected.  there were times i wanted to quit.  i made mistakes i could not fix and thought i should walk away.  but then my husband reminded me i was not perfect,  mistakes happen and would continue to happen.  then challenged me to learn from them and move on.  i did and am - everyday.  we captured more weddings/families/seniors/babies/etc. than ever before.  we grew.  got better.  and are currently making plans for a even better 2012... a website.  new booth for trade shows. my plans to blog EVERYDAY... a prayer wall... new printing services... and so much more.  stay tuned.

two years.

two years ago today... we captured our first, first look.

looking back i can still remember how nervous i was, but i was also excited...
 i knew this was the beginning of something great God had planned for me...
its been such an amazing two years and i have learned so much...
i cannot wait to grow & learn more in 2012, there is so much to look forward to ...

there is no excuse.   i am suck a slacker when it comes to blogging this month... the only excuses i have are "i am soooooo busy editing and helping create our new website" and "when i am not editing/working on our new website - i want to cuddle my husband."

call it lame... but thats what i got.   and even though i am in serious need of a nap... i am thankful.  so thankful that last year i shot 5 weddings and this year we shot 18.  it would have been 21 - but i got married in the middle of wedding season (i know i know what was i thinking... i was thinking i did not want to wait another day to be married to adam...) i am thankful for a husband who believes in me so much that he is spending COUNTLESS hours building an AMAZING website.  something he has never done before and is doing from scratch.  i am thankful that God is blessing us with so much work we can hardly keep up.  thankful that we are being forced to form a new battle plan to better serve all the customers who have/are coming our way.  i am thankful for growth and a future that looks brights.  thankful that dreams are becoming reality.

as for blogging i promise to catch up - because there is so much to share!  i also promise that in the new year i plan to make a blogging resolution and keep it. 

like i said on facebook 30 days was not enough to say how thankful i am. a Godly husband.  an amazing family.  awesome friends.  wonderful church.  the best clients.  the list goes on.  so grateful for it all.  for the mistakes i make and get to learn from.  for the hard times that make the good times sweeter.  for love.  for life. for faith.
i am forever grateful.
