the joy in the journey

The past few months have been an incredible roller-coaster of happiness, sadness, stress, triumph, comedy and tragedy. I suppose that is life, in a nutshell, but things have definitely been heightened for me and my family since the end of 2011.


Good things are happening in 2012, though. Next week, Evan and I will be moving to Milledgeville, as he got a job in the library at GCSU. Yay, Evan! I will miss Athens, but I will be coming here regularly starting in the fall.


My path in photography seems to constantly move in new directions that I never anticipated. I never, in a million years, had any intention of going to grad school, much less for photography, but that is where I now find myself, and honestly, I couldn't be more excited. I am looking forward to being introduced to new styles, new ideas, and working with new people. New is GOOD!

    I like the metaphoric image, but I believe you will be walking out of monochrome into a technicolor world...just like Dorothy. Good luck in this next phase of your lives....
