Christmas is coming so incredibly fast. as i travel through this christmas season i keep stumbling across images from the past. this was three years ago in kentucky. we went to do photos, i thought i had a brilliant plan. we went to a christmas tree farm @tifforelie had found a couple years before. the place is perfect, but i, in my blind excitement forgot you have to take the tree if you cut the tree. this tree ended up thrown in the back of my car and driven two hours to my office. in june of the following year i finally threw it away.

Today i launched my email newsletter. i’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but was scared for some reason. i’ve found that i talk myself out of doing most everything...to the point of keeping myself miserable, holding myself back, and messing myself over constantly...all because i have a fear of failure and a fear of having my own voice. luckily i’ve spent the past few months surrounded by the most supportive and amazing friends. friends that have encouraged to authenticate my voice, live authentically and fearlessly and to return to loving what i do. i appreciate them and you endlessly. the newsletter is based on the idea of sharing positive stories and news and essays. being a warm welcome to a wednesday each week! to sign up please follow the link in my profile. there is a bar at the top of our website. i do hope you’ll enjoy it. this photo is by me in california during my @bhphoto road trip back in february.
