2011, Where did you go?

So as you can see below is a summary of all that's been going on since ohhh about October. I'm so sorry I haven't kept up with this blog, I really am. These past few months I've really spent a lot of time thinking about my future and what I really want, or rather what God really wants even just for right now. And this season in my life was by far one of the busiest and when I didn't listen to that little voice telling me to slow down, instead I hit the accelerator and decided to go even faster and pile on even more. Until I got to the point where I just don't enjoy it anymore. "It" being everything. Just my day to day activities are becoming a drag because I balance too much or try anyway. Anyway, through lots of self exploration and submission to the Lord I WILL (mark my words) I WILL be slowing down this year. I have many weddings booked that I am excited about but I will be putting a limit on the number of appointments I take because, lets face it- 40 hours a week and a photo business on the side is not exactly easy while you're in school full time and in a new marriage. Am I right? I think I am. I know I need to put more love and time into my relationships in life and I need invest in others as well. I need to plan for graduate school or whatever lies ahead and take some time to make some art. Not for anyone or anything except for me. I don't want to race through life so fast and get to the end realizing I never stopped to look at the stars and smell the flowers or take a deep breath. What good would I have done? So my New Year's resolution? SLOW DOWN and LOVE MORE. Here's to a fantastic 2011 and an even brighter 2012! :)
