Thanksgiving is a great time to remember how blessed we are. I drove home late last night and all I could think about was how lucky I am to have family, clients, and friends who love and support me. Every word of encouragement, every new opportunity, and sometimes even my setbacks keep me pushing forward with a desire to be a better woman, friend, wife, and photographer. Thank you to everyone who follows, supports, and encourages me. You are the ones who make everything worth it.

I believe in dreams and I believe in following your dreams. Everyones dreams are different, and I love that. I love that we each have our unique dreams. Among other goals, some of us desire to be rich, some of us to be popular, some of us want to love others, some of us want to be loved, some of us want to inspire others, and some of us just want to be inspired .
I would dare say that although each of our goals are different (as they should be), the underlying purpose of our dreams is finding happiness. Happiness doesn’t look the same for everyone and I’m glad it doesn’t. I hope in my life I get to celebrate happiness in all it’s varieties by loving others and encouraging them to follow their dreams, whether their dreams look exactly like mine or completely different.
I find happiness in a lot of places, my friends, my family, my work, and my God. This last week I found happiness in working with my friend to bring together a shoot that highlighted her amazing talents as a hair stylist. So to close off this week I’ll leave you with piece of our happiness.
