Happy 2014!!!

New Year’s Eve is often seen as a time of regrowth…the chance to start all over…or improve what needs improved, but the older I’ve become the cliché’s of regular resolutions for the new year are no longer important to me. So I sit here on the first day of 2014 listening to Despicable Me 2 in the background so happy we had the majority of our children here to enjoy the New Year with.  Like I’ve said I am not the type of person to make New Year’s resolutions…since it’s typically the “kiss of death” for any success. While I try to practice the art of everyday living at my best and try to live within my means because I am far from perfect. I just am looking to do better…in every aspect of my life…I don’t wish to change my imperfections but rather enhance what DOES work…do I want to spend more quality time with my children instead of cleaning and time spent on the computer – YOU BET CHA!…do I like to be a better parent? – ABSOLUTELY!…do I love to lose 20+ lbs – OF COURSE.

So I make this promise to myself daily instead of yearly, to not be perfect but to just be better. I don’t wish to start January 1, my desire is to start everyday…and try my best to find that not being perfect is human but all that I can do is improve on what my imperfections are!

So what’s in store for 2014? We have a “little” one on his or her way this year…I cannot tell you enough how excited we are…and also on my more selfish account…I personally can’t wait to take pictures of this new grandbaby {no really…so so excited!!!}

I truly enjoy my personal and professional relationship with my oldest daughter…I couldn’t be more proud of her and her newly accomplishments with her fashion blog. It was a struggle at first with the both of us, but after time we learned to respect each other’s vision and work ethics…it is amazing how well work together and would trade those bonding moments for the world.  How mature my son has grown over this past year…such a wonderful compassionate young man he is turning into…not that he always wasn’t, but this year has just makes me smile ear to ear when I witness him in his every actions throughout the day.

My youngest daughter is so much like me it’s scary…and I can imagine the teen years ahead with her lol…but just so proud of her and her dedication to anything and everything to goes after…the drive and will she has at such a young age is just astounding… couldn’t be more proud!

My relationship with my family has its moments but just can’t ask for more love and support from them on all that I desire. My photography career continues to grow and my clients {I hate to brag} are the BEST…I love building new relationships…I think that is the best part of my job!


This year I promise to find more harmony of working at home and still attending to my personal life…it can get so hard sometimes with the demands of deadlines and the seasonal rush…this is the time of year I enjoy stepping back and recharge my batteries…one thing is for certain… the new year is to bring us many “unknowns” but with the right attitudes and positive outlooks…nothing can stand in your way! Here’s to another year!
