Hello Internet, I missed you. Here I sit at Starbucks, happy to be online again…at home, we’ve gone almost 24 hours without Internet (I think have the wind to thank?) and boy do things come to a halt in its absence.
It’s been a lovely first week on my own, doing my own thing, with my own business. It’s been a crazy week. I’m feeling the effects as I sit here and strain my eyes in order to stay open. It’s early afternoon. This is a week that I won’t experience again. The thrill of breaking out from a desk job to self-employment, the launch of my first + very own website, as well as a fresh new blog, and it all happens to fall over my birthday. I’ve had quality catch up time with friends, good food (my sister spoiled me with homemade tiramisu AND cupcakes!), time with loved ones and lots of Starbucks. It’s been nice because looking ahead, the next few weeks are full of shoots, a wedding, and then WPPI in Vegas! Things are about to kick into high gear!
Celebration and gratitude are two words that sum up the entirety of this week. While I have many people to thank in my life, the number one THANK YOU goes to God, because without a thing called grace, I’m sure this week (and the weeks to come) wouldn’t have looked the same. He has blessed me in more ways than I thought possible.
