Grab Life and Make It Happen

Last night, Donnie and I got together with Jess and Jason, whose wedding we are shooting in 18 days!! I think it's possible that they are more excited than we are, but just barely! We can't contain our excitement. While we were discussing details of their wedding day, Jason said something, and I've been turning it over in my mind since then. He said, "I'm always looking for where my next breath is going to come from, and where it's going to take me." How lovely, right? And then we toasted to life and its opportunities.

And then this morning, I received news that I can preorder my 2014 planner from the same company as last year. I opened the email with my shipping information from last year, and saw the gift message I had included since it was a gift to myself, to help me start my year strong.

"Happy New Year to you. This is a new chance to grab life and make it happen. 2013: The Best Year Yet!"

This has been such a big year in so many ways. I officially launched my business in January, we accepted Donnie's spot at SCAD in Savannah, GA, we celebrated one year of marriage. So today, I'm feeling grateful. Grateful for all the opportunities that have come our way, grateful for the people we have met, grateful for my incredible clients and friends and family.

Have a brilliant day, my friends! :)
