A Year of Changes
365 days ago, Jed and I were up late at night getting ready for our morning flight to Nepal. I cannot believe how life has changed since then. The biggest journey of our lives started a year ago as we boarded a flight to bring Nima home, not knowing what challenges awaited us. Not only did we meet our beautiful daughter, but we also met so many people who will be lifelong friends. Nima is the most amazing thing that has happened to us and I feel so blessed that God would entrust us to raise her. She is such a joy and blessing, but I can’t believe how fast time is going. I am trying to cherish every moment.
Tonight I am writing this from the studio. It feels like “old times” working late at night. The difference is there are two other renters in our gallery tonight working and trying to get their spaces ready by September 1st. Our business has evolved into something amazing and more manageable, but it is still difficult to see other people in our ”old space” painting walls and making it their own. I have been quite emotional lately. I have fears of losing the perspective I learned while living in Nepal. Fears of getting swallowed up by my business again. My two days of working at the studio have turned into 12-18 hour days trying to finish our space. I am excited to show you our “new” studio. I have a renewed energy about photography. BUT, I am also ready to stop breathing drywall dust, having garage sales in 100 degree weather, and working till the morning hours. I am ready to spend the majority of my days with my daughter. Tomorrow we leave to visit our friends at Animoto in NYC. It will be a nice break from the studio and a wonderful time seeing some great friends. Enjoy the rest of summer and stay cool :) I hope to post some more images soon.
