it's been quite some time since i've posted. i miss it around here, i swear i do! so much has happened in the past few months. so many good things.
last year i made a commitment to myself to work on things that i've struggled with all my life. i found a great therapist who i adore and i thank her for helping me grow into the person i am today. but not only do i thank her, i thank taylor and my family for their support, but most importantly i thank myself. a huge pat on the back to me for working my butt of to have all that i have today. having genuine pride in yourself is a beautiful feeling.
everything is coming together and its exhilarating. everyday brings something new and exciting. in the past few months i went from being very unhappy at my work, to absolutely loving it. and not just by luck. i learned how to be assertive, take charge and find my voice. not too long ago i was ready to move on to something new. i won't get into to much detail but i know that no matter my decision i would have ended up just fine. but i decided to take a leap of faith at work and speak up. since then i've been promoted, got a healthy raise, traveled to toronto for a photo shoot, met some famous photographers, traveled to new york with my boss for a week.... i'm so very happy with where i am at in my career and it is such a freeing feeling coming from someone who was so doubtful about the future for quite some time. everyday is a challenge, but i love the people i work with and i wake up in the morning excited for a new day.
my personal life is moving along just fine too. i've found a new love - pilates - and joined a studio up the street from my house (i'm obsessed). it seems taylor and i get closer and closer everyday. just when i think there is no way for us to get closer, something happens that brings us together. i feel i can talk to him about anything - and it took me a long while to get to this point. we talk about things that are new and uncomfortable, but its a safe place and i love him for that.
all in all, life is great and i can't wait to see what 2013 has to offer. i'm still thinking about what my new years
here are some bits and pieces of my life in the past 3 months...
