Reflections of 2014! I’ve been meaning to write a long, sappy post about how 2014 changed my life & how it was the best year yet & ow I thought 2013 was the top of the hill & how it’s just gotten better from here but I simply can’t put my heart into words… well, not any words you wouldn’t get bored of reading… So, for your viewing pleasure, I have compiled my year into highlights!
Starting with DECA:
The business competition I competed in with two of the best friends I could ask for (& many more wonderful people at the conference). We got 2 first place awards & got to travel to Orlando and Washington DC! It was amazing to turn our idea into a presentable project & our feedback was nothing but encouraging & amazing! ‘Appsalute Me’ Forever!!!!!
Then we Traveled to Europe:
My first taste of Europe has got me absolutely hooked. So much so, that we have already planned another trip for this summer! This year we studied at the Czech University of Life Science in Prague! We also visited Humboldt University in Berlin & The Art Institute in Vienna, Austria! It was breathtaking, & wonderful, & humbling to say the least. & Im certain I left a piece of my heart in Praha…
Europe Round II:
This time we traveled to the land of my ancestors (well half of them), Italy! Or as we fondly remember it: ‘eat-ily’. We ate pasta, drank wine, & explored Venice, Florence, Tuscany, & Roma! It was a magical, mysterious, & miraculous adventure & I’m so fortunate to have shared it with Zachary & his family.

2014 will forever be the birth year of my actual company. It’s when my ‘.wordpress’ became a .’com’ and it’s when I officially printed my own logo & business cards. It’s when I started to come out of my earthy-landscape comfort zone & into the world of portraits (like these below)! I can’t express my gratitude for my amazing & loyal clients who use my photos for artwork, christmas cards, yearbook pics, & more! Thank you all, & I hope you all know how much this artist appreciates being able to express myself through my lens!
Last but not least, my sunshine. There are no words to describe this love except for it’s a book I never want to stop reading, a roller coaster I never want to stop riding, & a blissful heaven I never want to leave. Thank you for making me believe in fairytales again, you are my dream come true.
