Find the Good: 100 Happy Days

Happiness is a beautiful thing…sometimes for short periods and sometimes for really long periods. Happiness happens to us, yes. There's also another way...we can choose it!  Choosing happiness as a lens through which to see our life can be transforming.  That's what I want for my life.  And…Life happens…that's just life, and some days can feel rotten.  I can still choose to find the happiness. Love instead of fear. I can choose!

I’ve been thinking…what would happen if every day for 100 days I just focused on the amazing gift of life, the simple moments, and little things…instead of what’s wrong, the struggles, the daily nuisances?
It doesn't mean I'll feel perfect all of the time; it just means every day for 100 days I am going to find SOMETHING to celebrate!

Then on the 100th day I am going to have a party to... and I celebrate the gratitude!

If you want a practice of gratitude, joyful enthusiasm, love, friendship, and fun, feel free to join in here!! : )

The more positive vibes we share, the more positive we become ourselves.

And if you're someone who is already super happy and positive then you should definitely join to help share your awesomeness with others!

Take up the challenge! Click here!

p.s. I thought I should note, the only thing you commit to doing is deciding to look for good every day for 100 days. You don't have to do anything or post anything, but if you want to share it then go for it!♥ That's it!
Love, Dawn

So Blessed By 2013

This 2013 has been an amazing year! I was busier than ever--with new clients and several past clients returning with new family milestones. I photographed beautiful seniors and families, attended a fantastic photography workshop in Park City, UT, I worked to heal knee and neck sprains…and a broken heart as I learned my step-mom passed away. My work has been nationally recognized and used in locally in a magazine, I welcomed a new puppy to the family, and my girl started her senior year! 

I feel this was a blossoming year for me as an artist. I found my style, my groove. I am always creating and asking how God wants to use me. Where, when, and what. The "how" 
is always a surprise. In the past 2 months, I've taught both art and photography classes to young people. It was a dream, but yet it surprised me. What a beautiful surprise it was!

I grew as a business owner in 2013, and learned a lot of valuable business owner lessons! I changed my business model--and continue to see a difference!  I’ve created very special relationships with my clients, and continued to grow with past clients that have believed in me since day one. And now the kids are coming to me to schedule their own portraits!

I work hard and play hard. I love my life's work artist and teacher with my daughter following in my footsteps. She is my inspiration and it’s so wonderful to work together on sessions when we can.  My husband, my best friend and supporter, has been my biggest cheerleader. It's his unwavering love and deep commitment to my bliss!

I am blessed by being able to create meaningful art for cool people. I am so supported and inspired by my friends, family, our community, fans, and band family.  Words cannot express how continually grateful I am for everyone and everything. Thank you for blessing my life.  I cannot wait to see what 2014 brings!

Love, Dawn
