Happy New Beginnings!

It is that time of year where everyone says “happy new year!”, and some even go as far as making resolutions. With the way 2020 turned out, I feel as though we should look ahead as though it is a chance at a new beginning, and in a way it really is. We all have that uncertainty ahead of us, but we are in it together and as much as you are probably tired of hear that, it really is the truth. So, allow me to wish you a very “happy new beginning!”.

The holiday’s were low key for us this year, which made me happy because if you know me at all, December is my least favorite month, but we both took 8 days off and it was glorious. In that time off I realized that we do not take enough time off throughout the year. We work, we stay busy and we cram a lot into our 2 days off each week, but it is rare we take more than a week off each year. I think that needs to change and I have plans to make that happen for 2021. It’s going to be a pretty badass year, and I hope the same for you!

Beautiful

I saw this the other day and it speaks volumes to the year, and gives me hope for the next chapter in my life.

Be present. Make love. Make tea. Avoid small talk. Embrace conversation. Buy a plant, water it. Make your bed. Make someone else’s bed. Have a smart mouth, and quick wit. Run. Make art. Create. Swim in the ocean. Swim in the rain. Rake chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Learn. Know your worth. Love fiercely. Forgive quickly. Let go of what doesn’t make you happy. Grow.

Investing into My New Beginnings.

My site has always been 100% me, from the write-ups, to the blogging and definitely in all of the email correspondence. There is a lot more to maintaining the site than just the face of it on social media and with what is shown, but in content and producing videos. With everything else that I had on my plate, the editing and rendering of the videos and sorting the pictures was not something I bothered with. However, now I am going to dive in and learn how to do what I probably should have been doing all along. I have to admit, I am looking forward to it because this change has been good for me. My first step in this new venture is buying a camera that is not my iPhone. lol. 

I just received the camera package that includes a Canon Camera, one lens, and a microphone. I also bought an external flash, a different lens and a couple memory cards. This weekend I will read the 900 page manual, take pictures of Tucker and Levi, but Roger I already know will not participate in my classroom lessons. 

Amber, your generous GC that you sent a couple weeks ago was used to buy the flash, which is a huge help. I just want you to know that it means a lot that you are always so thoughtful in every way. Thank you.

I appreciate the patience and support that everyone has shown me over the last three months. I hope to make some changes to the site by the years end, but you will start seeing more videos added on a regular basis once I get familiar with everything.
