January 2018

31 days into the new year and already so much has happened!

From basketball, the Women’s March, snowstorms, studio photography and some breaking news, the fun never ends in East Tennessee.

Some like to begin their new year on a blank slate. Personally, I like to set goals for myself of what I would like to accomplish in the next 12 months. At the end of each year I reflect on what worked, what didn’t and what I can improve on. Fortunately/unfortunately life happens and things get tossed up and goals/plans/ideas change.

Either way, life is an adventure and I love every minute of it. Here are some of my favorite photos from the past month.
