Let’s just get straight to it. This year has been straight up crazy. Even today, I feel like I’m still racing to complete 2015. I moved to Texas, got married and started shooting weddings. Three things I said I’d never do.
Moving to Austin has brought out the best in me. It’s forced me to break through all kinds of anxieties and face up to beliefs about myself, my career and my relationships. Pursuing photography full time has opened all kinds of doors and helped me form friendships with other small business owners who are both inspiring and a huge comfort. Moving has also made me realize that despite my awkwardness, making friends and keeping friends shouldn’t be difficult.
Needless to say I’m ready to run into 2016, while still celebrating what a great year 2015 was and still is! Tonight Mark and I will be celebrating both CT and EST midnights. No end of the year post is complete with out some goals for 2016. Let me know if we have overlapping goals and how you stay on track.
Here are mine:
