So long 34! To be honest, I couldn't be happier about turning 35. Something changed drastically in me during my 34th year, for the better. Now, at 35, I'm happy, I'm hopeful. I'm able to take a portrait of myself looking right into the camera and not want to cringe when I look back at it. I've come into my own. I now see more of the person God intended me always to be. Don't get me wrong, I'm not there yet, I have a long way to go in this sanctification process but I sit here after 35 years and I'm actually looking forward to everything else He wants to cleanse me of. I'm grateful that after 35 years, the people that are closely in my life, I can say I truly love and adore and admire. I've also as a result of all that love, never been more inspired in my photography. This year...I'm so excited, more excited than I've ever been for a year of life, and I can't wait to take it all in. Cheers to 35. xoxox, m
