So while I love having two separate sites to showcase my portrait work versus my wedding work keeping up with two blogs is pretty much impossible for me.  One always suffers.  I think that if you read my blog and enjoy my work you want to see all of it in once place so I’m…

    This list is fantastic and inspires me to create my own! I would LOVE to help out with/participate in many of the above goals…they all sound intriguing. And I’ll be honest…I especially like number thirty :) Is it odd that I feel honored to have made your list?? Haha.

    Thank Laura, it was tougher then I expected. I figured I had all kinds of things running around in my head that surely I could fill the list easily but that wasn’t the case. Happily I’m putting the finishing touches on several of my goals so I plan to get those updates posted soon!
