My SacBride Magazine COVER has arrived!!! AND a look back 10 years.... is finally here!!! The SacBride magazine in which my picture graces the cover has arrived!!! (REMINDER: This cover will not arrive in stores OR online until around MARCH!!!) Thought I would take a picture of them in the box I got them in.  It has been about 5 years since these boxes have been arriving at my doorstep...WISHING the cover this year would FINALLY be mine!

Last year I came close...tied for third place. That was actually very significant in a less obvious way, and only to me. So I will share the reason with you...

Before I started advertising in SacBride 5 years ago, I was looking through the magazine and thinking HOW cool it would be to have my pictures in there. And who is this photographer I KEEP SEEING ALL OVER??? I have to admit, I was a bit jealous...will I ever be that GOOD??? Well can you take a wild guess at WHO I TIRED FOR THIRD WITH???? YES YES was her! So even though it was a tie AND 3rd it held a meaning for me of an accomplishment...not the 3rd place part, but to be honest...more about where I am this a company and a business.

So as I was taking a look back at Christmas cards and letters of the past, I came across a letter I wrote and sent out to friends and family TEN years ago announcing my NEW BUSINESS venture into photography.  It had an adorable picture of my oldest (she was about 5) in her little ballet outfit during dance class in black and white. Along with the picture I had the lyrics of a new-ish song at the time, "I Hope You Dance".

In the spirit of Christmas and beginning a new is to a look FORWARD. I will post my youngest daughter, now 5, in her ballet outfit, this past month, at her first dance recital. AND my favorite parts of the lyrics the "I Hope You Dance" song. Here is to 10 more years and to YOUR endeavors in this coming new year! EnJOY!!!


May you never take one single breath for granted

Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens

Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances but they're worth taking

Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out reconsider

Time is a wheel in constant motion always
Rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder
Where those years have gone

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance....
