a new and personal season


Happy spring to ya!

North Carolina feels like it went straight from winter to summer this last two weeks or so...and today feels like winter again.  I may have sat in the sun a little this past week to try to get rid of my ever so paleness that comes with hibernation.    but today...is spring  It's cold and rainy and we may even have a fire going and a cat in my lap as I write this.  happiness.

About this time last year I was wrapping up my final days working at Duke University.  I can't believe it's almost been a year since I have left.  I can honestly say I have never looked back and don't want to either.  Even though I have had days of anxiety questioning my photography business, I don't miss the demands of a 9-5 job, really 7:30-5.  I've enjoyed setting my schedule, deciding how many clients I want to take per year-Lord willing, having more quiet time with the Lord each morning, time to run, coffee/tea, thrift shop and lunch dates with friends and of course taking care of my little family which may only consist of a husband and two cats...but taking care of them is important to me and to the health of our marriage.  I still look at Joe in amazement of being okay with me leaving a good {assumed stable} job and believing in me that I could do this thing called self-employment.  

Last fall Joe was interviewing for a new job and was prompted with sort of strange interview questions such as; if you could have dinner with any 3 people who would they be?  How cool would it be to sit down with Jesus and his disciples? Another was who was your role model?  His response was, "my wife"...? My mouth kinda dropped when he told me the story.  But why am I your role model? For taking a leap of faith {post here}, starting your own business and doing something you love.  I am truly the luckiest woman to have a man who has more faith in me than myself most some days.  I love you to the moon and back Mr. English.  

truly, truly I do...
