Grateful on Thanksgiving {mine}

This time of year warms my heart, as it does many of us. I love the fact that everyone is a little more kind, loving and generous. The Spirit fills us, that's for sure.

This time of year is extra special to me. This Holiday season marks the end of my second year of my little photography business first taking flight. When I first found this passion I never in a million years thought that anyone else might want me to take their photographs. I am so grateful that you do! I love, love, love it!!! So as I head into my third year please know how grateful I am to all of you for your support and love. 2011 is gonna be great I can feel it!!

I am also so grateful for:

-my freedoms and liberties.

-all of you who continue to support me in so many ways, little and big.

-my families overall good health.

-my home.

-a best friend who loves me for just being me.

-my mentors. Who let me pick their brains, shadow them, call them in almost tears, and for their willingness to come to my aide and help me out and continue to encourage me.

-my family. We may not be perfect, but we are still a family and in these days and time that's saying a lot. I love them to pieces!

-my hubby who supports me and my crazy dreams. It's not always easy, but I wouldn't want to be on this ride with anyone else. :)

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!!!

the red coat {Redlands Family Photographer}

I love the holidays, almost everything about them. One reason I love Christmas so much is because of all the red that I get to see splashed around. Next to pink it's one of my most favorite colors. So when my cutie-pie niece showed up in her little red coat I almost died. What a doll! I have to admit that I saw that same coat in the store and passed it up for my little one...big mistake. Well maybe we can borrow yours Leilani...after all cousins share, right?

Love you guys...thanks for the fun!
