A Time to regroup....

I love this time of year...the craziness of the holidays is past and things grow quiet in our little beach town. It is my time to regroup and get ready for the year ahead. I usually like to update my website, make new business cards, back up all of my files on the computer, etc. I always feel better after doing these mundane things, knowing that I am now finally somewhat organised. I guess it is the Virgo in me that seeks order and tidiness.

I am really excited about the months ahead because I have a few cool things coming up...First, at the end of Feb. I am attending Brianna Graham's photography workshop in Raleigh, NC. I LOVE her style and know that I can learn a lot from her. She offers a nice balance in her workshops...1 day of studio shooting, 1 day on location and one day of all photoshop and post processing techniques. Yay! Next, we will be travelling to Costa Rica to visit my best friend Caroline who moved there this past year...I have been once before and found it to be a magical, beautiful place. My husband and daughter have never made the trip so I am excited for them to see how amazing it is there. They want to go on the zip line's and white water rafting, so that should be a blast! After that is the Art and Soul retreat that comes here every year which I always enjoy...

Here are a few things I have been doing lately...
