Just got back from our little excursion to North Georgia. I like to joke with Jon that we are senior citizen vacationers because we LOVE a good lazy and relaxing vacation. Going up to the mountains for an extended weekend with no plans and plenty of groceries to stay in and cook is perfect. Instead of planning each day to the hour, we can just let the day go and do as we please. Take naps, read, play card games, cook, sit in the hot tub, watch movies, adventure outside. Whatever floats our boat. I am a HUGE theme park person, but a quiet trip to the mountains is one of my new favorite ways to vacation.

This week I'm starting back full-swing at my 9-5 job and with Maiedae. I'm a little anxious about transitioning back into everything but I'm absolutely ready to take this year on. I'm especially excited about this weekend because Jenny and I are flying to California to attend a video workshop and visit one of our best friends from college. I can't wait!!

Snapshot(s) of the Week: 1// New vinyl from Christmas. 2// Black and white flats from UO. 3// Jon on our New Years Eve date in the city. 4// Morning view from our cabin in North Georgia.

The Study of Light - I just started this e-course as one of my learning points for the year. I really want to challenge my photography skills this year and learn how to really work with lighting. I'm so excited to dive in and start some artist portrait work following her tips from the e-course.
