Hello there! How was your week?
Doing something new for Fridays. A recap of sorts and sharing a few links that you may enjoy. Fun, insightful, creative, silly things. Let’s see how it goes!
Happy New Year! Hope your first week of 2018 has been going well. Did you know yesterday was National Spaghetti Day? Let me tell ya, spaghetti and meatballs is my favorite meal – comfort food at its best! So this made sense to celebrate. But check this out – I didn’t know what to have for dinner last night. It was too cold to go outside and buy anything; but wising up, I remembered what I had in stock. After googling some cool recipes that used meat and spinach, I decided to make a meat sauce to use with pasta that my mom cooked up earlier.
Here’s what I did:
I love taking pictures.
Capturing moments, settings, awesome views, facial expressions. It’s so cool to me. It reminds me of choreography and theatre staging. Having a theme or concept in mind, and working on achieving the right shot at the right time. I love it. So, I’ve been dabbling for a few years, but at the end of last year, I made the decision to step it up with my photography. After I took my friend Ica’s workshop in January, it was on!
Y’all know my theme for the year was “Challenge yourself”. Learning more, doing more. Bringing my camera along with me and experimenting with lenses. Stepping out and sharing my photos on social media. Actually telling people that I take pictures. I haven’t always been good at promoting my work or informing, but I’m growing into that confidence. And I have some awesome friends who have been so encouraging all year. So, if you’re reading – thank you!
Because of my commitment and awesome favor, it has led to some cool opportunities, which included my first paid gig.
