UPDATE: We are heading out this morning for a 1 day road trip. Bentley has her cardiology appointment at the same hospital she had surgery in. We should be arriving back home later tonight. Please say a tiny prayer for us, for safe travels and a good report. The weather is nasty here today, and we also meet our new cardiologist for the first time. I'm anxious!!!
I am so excited for the upcoming months!! I am about to take a huge leap into something new that I have no knowledge about. Photography. I have been inspired by photography for quite some time now. While working or surfing the net, I often find myself wondering off to photography sites just looking at every ones amazing photos and talent. I am blown away by so many of you photographers out there. I have always been obsessed with taking pictures... and as you can see I am always the one taking them... always behind the lens never in front of. Every time I come across these awesome photography sites I just sit and wish I could do that. I do believe that a lot comes naturally but I also believe there is a ton of knowledge behind being a photographer. I never in a million years even thought about pursuing photography. I mean, I see these photos on photography sites and there is just no way I could ever make those happen. After obsessing about photography for an extremely long time.. it finally donged on me... if I love it so much, why not try it out. I have absolutely nothing to lose, so why not give it a shot. I obviously feel a huge passion for it... there is nothing stopping me or keeping me from following this strong urge to want to pursue photography... so I have decided, I am going for it!!! I have so much to learn but, I am ready. I am so excited about this new path God is taking me. I have thought and prayed so long and hard about this and I can't wait to get started.
(I have taken all of these photos a while back. I may have already posted a couple, but these were my favs. And for your photographers out there.. don't laugh.. I know I need some lessons!! HAHA!!!)
One of my close online friends and amazing photographer, Angie, with Angie Seaman Photography started a beginners photography class a few months back. Again, I have never even imagined I would be taking these steps so I have always turned my head when she offered these classes. She has another class that will begin Jan. 4, 2010... I am registered for this class and can't wait!!! I am super excited about this class!!! This class is not only good if you have an interest in photography but if you have children it's great too or just for every day use. We are always wanting great pictures of our children playing sports, dance recitals, and just every day life. This class will help with this as well, so you do not even have to be interested in photography. I so wish I would have taken it a long time ago when she first started. Thankfully she is doing another now, so I am jumping at this opportunity before it fills up. That's right, she is only offering so many slots for the class. Glad my spot is reserved!!!
I have also been on the hunt for more online courses, I told ya.. I am hitting this full force. I have nothing to lose. I am just so excited and anxious about this journey... excited and anxious does not go well with impatient. I am an extremely impatient person. I have come across a couple of other great online courses I will soon be registering for... yeahh!!! Anxiety is killing me here!!! But with Christmas just a few weeks away, I will manage. You know how much I love Christmas!!!!
I just wanted to share this exciting (to me) news with you all since it seems to hold a pretty big place in my heart!!! For all of my photographer readers (I'm not sure how many of you are there) please don't laugh at these pictures. ;) I know they are not great but it's the best I got right now!!! HAHA!!! And if you are a photographer reader or anyone else has any tips for tackling this journey... do comment or email!!!! Please!!!!
