Casablanca New Zealand

Away my lovely Wanderlust friend goes to her far off New Zealand destiny, where she can be free as the graceful fairy she is within.

Fluttering in new blissful beginnings, being one with nature, dancing with the breeze, and feeling the sand between her toes. Finally being able to take flight in a place that has been calling out to her in a coastal, kiwi reverie.

Never far from my thoughts. Perhaps the younger sister I always wished to have. She opened my heart up to mindfulness, learning gratefulness for every gift bestowed on me, and opened my world up to things I once thought were impossible or just a pipe dream.

Having her as my friend, makes me a better version of myself.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile, touch our hearts, and we are never, ever the same. 

One day we will be reunited after time, and divided by a sea of experience. Artists with many stories to be told and retold.. I believe we met in a whirlwind of kismet, yoga, hot Mad Hatter tea and pixie dust. No rhyme or reason, just two people who whimsically relate in ways others might not understand.

"Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them, but you know they are always there."

Photo Blog Start Up Rant

So here I am writing about my start up process. I will be honest many of my successful and talented friends have blogs, but I myself have never even considered making one or had the drive to sit at my computer and type about stuff. My sparks of creative thought come in all forms, but I best express myself through the art of photography. I choose a visual path, rather than a verbal one. Although thinking about it now, they go side by side.

Today I purchased something special that just resonated with me and the incredible lessons I learn daily from my mentor Sue Bryce. She is all about taking daily action in your life, and taking steps toward what you want everyday by writing your positive affirmations and goals down. I absolutely love this, because I am a person who wants to give myself wholeheartly to everyone from clients, friends, family and just people I meet in passing (anywhere from David's Tea to The Dollar Store) from a place of Love, Respect and Gratitude. 

My gift to myself is what is called 'A Wish Jar.' A mason jar with a lid that says Wishes...May all your wishes and dreams come true. So the idea of this amazing jar is to write all the things you want to come to fruition. It comes with 100 wish tags, and a cute pen you leave in the jar to write your messages on. What a wonderful idea to write well wishes & special messages in this jar. I can keep it in my studio and even get my closest friends and loved ones to add to it. My Slovak grandmother was in my head when I saw it in the store saying dobrý dobrý Christichka, you must purchase this and make magic with it' I have a feeling my kids will fill it up with wishes of getting their future pug. Frankly I might too. ;)

So today I start my new journey of blog writing with my hipster WISH JAR, a photo journal and a promise to keep setting my photography intentions for my business every single day.

One of Sue's favourite quotes that I plan on framing on my wall in my studio. 

"What we vividly imagine, ardently desire, enthusiastically act upon, must inevitably come to pass"   ~ Colin P. Sisson

Ta Ta for now!
