Sometimes in life you earn, and get, a restart. I'm on the cusp of one, after spending the last ten (great) years caring for my mom. She passed away in early 2015 and after months of nothing but a soul sucking heartache that I cannot describe, we finally started making plans. Plans for us, plans for our future.
She wanted me to "really live" to "be happy" to travel (I have wanderlust) and "take lots of beautiful pictures to remember it all." So, that's EXACTLY what I'm going to do, because mother knows best.
Wednesday 9/23/15 we leave for Colorado; my hubby, my girl, the love of her life, and my dog. I bought a full frame Nikon back in April that doesn't even have 1,000 clicks yet. There's millions of photographers who would love to have that camera. But, my world just sort of stopped bc I don't know what it's like to not care for anyone but myself, and that transition has been tough.
BUT, that Nikon isn't leaving my hands anymore. I'm truly blessed to have ONE SHOT at moving to a place that I am absolutely and completely at peace in, where I feel SO good inside & out I'm like a different person, and I plan on documenting every bit of it. Doesn't hurt that Colorado is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, either.
