I'm back from vacation all rested and relaxed. Things didn't go exactly as planned but it was a wonderful vacation. I wasn't looking forward to going back to work, but it is certainly easier after having time to rejuvenate! I have a few photos and a story to share but I have had an exhausting weekend. I will be sure to update you later in the week.
I wanted to let you know this month's prompt is up at Forward Progress. This one was easy for me. It is about reaching a goal or making steps toward reaching a goal. A few posts back I mentioned my dream of being a better photographer. I felt it only fitting to do a layout about one step I'm taking toward realizing that dream. Here is my layout:
The journaling reads:
"On My Way...to realizing a dream. It starts with one step...one.. single..step...and then...and only then...can you take flight! Karen Russell Photography Class June 2009"
Most often the first step toward realizing a goal is the hardest. For me, I kept using my lack of knowledge as an excuse to just stall out. Because I am trying so hard to make 2009 the year I get in touch with my inner wants and wishes, I felt it time to take that first step...taking a photography class. My first attempt left me on the VERY long waiting list. But I persevered and finally got in. Class starts next Monday...and I am beyond excited!!!!!
I hope everyone will take the time to visit Forward Progress and see what the rest of the team has done with this prompt. And if you have the time, please play along with us! I would love to see what you create. More importantly, I would love to know what goals you are working toward achieving.
P.S. How 'bout my new blog look? I think it is sooooo happenin'. The wonderful Shaina took charge and VOILA! I have a new look!!!!! If you've been toying with the idea of updating your blog design, I HIGHLY recommend Shaina!
