Around this time each year I find myself wishing that I had lived the past year different. Praying that next year will be MY year. Maybe even shedding a few tears over the fact that my life isn’t exactly where I want it to be. But this year is different. This year has seen so many dreams come true.
I could look back and say “I can’t believe it took thirty-three years!”. Thirty-three years to finally listen to my heart. Thirty-three years to finally find the other half of my heart. But I won’t. I believe that every choice I made and every experience I did or didn’t have was exactly where God felt I needed to be at that point in my life. But I am SO thankful that God decided to bring me to this point in my life now.
I can only assume and imagine how absolutely wonderful thirty-four will be. Every day I live my idea of a perfect life. Well, as perfect as one person can possibly get. I get to spend my days taking photos and making new friends and I am with the most amazing, God fearing and loving man. I’ve waited 33 years for this and it was all SO worth the wait.
Goodbye 33….you were really good to me.
Some of the highlights of thirty-three:
-Traveled to Antigua to photograph a wedding
-Quit my graphic design job to pursue my passion of photography full time
-Met the love of my life, Jesse
-A new nephew was born in April!
