grace, growth + a time out

‘morning, internet…amidst the to-do lists, the emails, the juggling of calendars and well, getting out and enjoying life, this is me taking a quick time out. i have to tell myself to stop and reflect and remember. i do this once in a while on my blog but honestly, i’ve been neglecting keeping up with any personal blogging. and i like to do that, it helps keep me in check. last week i browsed through my entire blog, going back to earlier shoots that i now heavily critique and think oh i sooo would’ve done that differently. it’s crazy how much can happen in just one year. forget a year, how about just one season. one month. you can fit a lot of learning and living into one seemingly insignificant piece of time.

as my business grows, i’m so excited to start the process of cutting back from my ‘day job’. it means that my dream of making it as a photographer is becoming a reality. i’ve gone down to four days a week at the church office i work at, but even then it’s going to be a challenge to balance that work load with the photo bookings and projects i have on my calendar. again, SO excited! and sincerely grateful. i can’t believe the opportunities that are presenting themselves, and the wonderful people who i’ve had the fortunate pleasure of connecting with.

since (canadian) thanksgiving is just a week away, i’ll wrap this up by simply saying…i’m thankful. thankful for the answered prayers. thankful for God’s out pouring of grace again and again, evident in all this and more. i want to remember this time of growth and new starts and much promise and much on the horizon to look forward to.

speaking of which, here’s a preview of a fun + fabulous project on that horizon:

until next time… :)
