As the sun sets on another week, I can’t help but reflect on a few things.
At this time last week, I was hurriedly changing clothes, curling my hair and jumping feet first into the inaugural @artofthecowgirl event.
It was incredible.
I made new friends, learned more than I would have ever imagined, and had an incredible time doing it. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my passion for art/creativity while simultaneously empowering women, and building partnerships.
If you’ve been around here long enough, you know that I’d not be where I am today if not for my better half, @zach.ducheneaux. His sacrifices make it possible for me to be me. We are a team and a darn good one. He has believed in me when I couldn’t believe in me. And wouldn’t let me quit when I was ready to throw in the towel.
This photo isn’t in focus. The sun cast a soft enough glare that the camera had a hard time focusing. Mostly because I was in a hurry. The moment was fleeting.
I was trying capture what I saw at that moment — the setting sun, the soft loft of Cosmo’s fluffy, Winter hair, golden, dreamy light and her breath hanging in the air.
I don’t care that this image isn’t in focus, because life is not perfect. A lack of perfection is what makes life beautiful. Realizing our blessings makes life beautiful. Finding the opportunity and positivity in every situation make life beautiful. The sooner we embrace those things the happier we will be. Trust me. It took me years to learn this. But if I can learn it, so can you.
Thank you for letting me share my imperfect life, images and ramblings with all of you. ♥️
