These are my three loves! It seems like so long ago. Now they are 17, 13 and 8! This year my oldest will graduate high school with stellar grades. I couldn't be more proud of how dedicated these three kids are. As I've been reminiscing over this image, I can't help but think of all the changes in our lives since this day. I'm thankful for the journey. I'm thankful for each day full of joy, each heartache, the lessons and the blessings. I wouldn't be the woman I am today without it all! Now, it's the beginning of a new year! I love new beginnings. There is so much hope attached to them. I started the year with a brand new website, a brand new blog, focusing on all that God has in store for me and my three beautiful children. So, while I have been in the photography business for 14 years and I have been in the health and wellness business for three and a half years (I am an artist and entrepreneur at heart, cannot help that, I'm sure I will have some more business projects in the pipeline soon), I've decided to start a brand new blog to document my journey through my crazy life! I'm a normal mom who sometimes gets overwhelmed, who sometimes wonders if I'm doing a decent job at raising my kids. Am I balancing work and family well? Am I out of balance? I mean, are they going to always remember how much I love and adore them? Even on those days that they will hate me for disciplining them or for saying NO to something they really wanted? Do they realize I would jump in front of a semi for them? I have two teenagers so I sometimes wonder how long until I see the major teen issues come up. Don't get me wrong, many already have. I've spent my fair share of sleepless nights, praying, wondering if I'm doing the right thing as a parent! Too strict? Too lenient? Too much freedom? Not enough? One thing I know for sure, my Jesus will always lead me in walking faithfully before Him, as long as I ask and as long as I am willing. And all I can do is ask Him to direct my steps. While I have been very blessed with the life I have, 2018 is a year for FAITH and FOCUS! It's a year to SOAR!!! I'm going into 2018 with FEARLESS FAITH! I'm excited to be sharing my journey with you!
