Thelma & Louise

i have been feeling a little down lately.
time and jobs has kept me from spending time with my 
best friend.

we share so many dreams and goals.
then life gets in the way.

but i feel inspired.
we spent the day together at a camera class.
talking shop, learning.
and i think it lit a little spark.

we are some team!

here's to making sure we find moments, brief as they may be,
to spend time.
pursuing our passion.

we met knew people today that assumed we have
been best friends since we were children.
and although that time frame is far from the truth,
i can say it feels like we have known each other

we complete each other.
and i am SO very thankful and blessed God
crossed our paths at just the right time.

“The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God's eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love. If eyes are windows to the soul then tears are Heaven's rain."

when reflecting on my quick morning shoot,
these photographs stood out.
i have always felt a horses eyes were 
deep windows.
almost always appearing mysteriously sad.
and painfully beautiful.
so out of all i captured,
these are the ones
i felt the need to share.

i saw myself in these eyes today.
for a brief moment.

as i reflect on 2012,
the fact that i am posting an image of
myself is proof enough
that i've grown and changed in the last year.

i started a new job.
improved my knitting skills.
built a best 'friendship'.
started charging for photography sessions.
got new equipment for my photography.
(camera, lenses, laptop, upgraded editing software)
survived another year of teenagers.
promised myself i would try harder with my marriage, 
improving it as the years change things, as our children become older.

it was a hard year.
but a good year as i reflect upon it.

was does 2013 have in store?

challenge myself with knitting..going beyond the hat and scarf, learning new stitches..and finishing my son's blanket!
building Studio 139:13, our photography business.
hosting a newborn photography workshop.
learning my new Canon, inside and out.
reading more.
blogging more.
getting my RN degree (unless Studio 139:13 soars beyond our wildest dreams)
deep cleaning every room in our home and getting rid of SO much unnecessary stuff!
continue to build my marriage.
help my oldest son find himself and become a man.
help my youngest son continue to grow and mature.
moving mama to PA.
learning to love 'ME'.

not resolutions.
just goals, dreams, wishes.

happy new year!
