It's a new year and I've been a busy, busy girl. I just got back from visiting my friend Caleb in the San Francisco area and leave for Ireland a week from this coming Friday. Where has the time gone?!
For my birthday this year, I got an amazing gift: a Canon 40D. The camera and I are taking our time getting acquainted, but after using it rather prolifically on this most recent trip (about 600 shots in three days), I can tell you that this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Beauty is manifesting itself in so many new and exciting ways in my life right now -- things that I've hoped for and waited for and cried out to God for are coming my way. Empty hands are being filled to overflowing. My heart feels so very full that these stories will take some time to unfold and to tell as I search out the words that will aim to describe all that's being unveiled right now.
Here's to a year of immense and unparalleled beauty ... thanks for joining me for the journey.
