So I have so many dreams for my life here on earth! At times I get super frustrated because my dreams can't come true when I want them too! I can't wait till the day when I can become a mother....most of my thoughts are about having a baby! I use to never day dream about my children growing up but lately i almost look more forward to the days when I can just play and hang out with my kids. When they have their own lives and their own opinions. I'm sure when that day comes I will look back and think why did I look forward to this day again?!
My next big dream in life is to be a Photographer! I know I'm like every other Mormon girl out there. I have no idea if this is my true art in life but I can't wait to find out! I have been dreaming about this for years now! I look at photographers for hours at a time. To me it is art and I can NEVER get enough! I LOVE it! I love the colors, the textures, the expressions on peoples faces, the stories that pictures tell, and how they make me feel something in side. Its a passion that I have. I look at Rebekah Westover Photography like everyday! I LOVE HER! I even got to watch her work atone my besties weddings! I told her how much I loved her work.....its like a have a crush on her cuz she is so FREAKIN good and i just love her style and crisp images. I know this a random post but I just think about this all the time and its nice to put my thoughts on an empty canvas. I dream of the day when we will be able to be out of debt and be able to buy THE camera I want! I know the day is coming soon and I get so excited/nerves just thinking about it. Will I be good at this....will I really enjoy it or is just something that i dream about to fill my mind. I really don't like to tell people I want to do Photography because I usually don't get the most positive response. I understand that everyone wants to do it but that doesn't mean everyone is good at it and I really believe deep down that I may have a chance to be good at it! Even if I'm not that good at it...I will love it and I know that I will have my supporters who like what I do because they LOVE ME!
The third thing i dream about all the time is traveling and seeing new places. Oh how I love to TRAVEL! I also found myself spending hours on the computer looking up places to go and cheap vacations. I just can never get enough! The other day Sterling and I were talking about how I have some money on my credit card that we are trying to pay off. Well its from my trip to Europe. When I bought my ticket i was still in school and of course i just didn't have 1,000 bucks laying around so naturally I used my credit card. To me i can't put a price tag on the trip so i of course did it with out a 2nd thought. Sterling asked me if I regretted that trip! I told him I would have done it the same way every time. That trip was a once in a life time trip. I had the time of my life and I will never forget that trip with Andrea. Plus I told him it helped me realize that I was in LOVE with him! Traveling is just one of my passions! I love to look at all the different places and all the colors and people! Uh I want to hop on a plane now! Plus I want to travel so I can take a billion pictures of
new things and always have those pictures to look at forever!
|Greence was the one place I was so sad that we didn't get to go here when we were Europe. It was far and we just didn't have the time. One day Ster and I will go here!|
|I would love to HIKE HIKE HIKE and then HIKE some more in New Zealand. The outdoors here just look amazing. I would to take a back pack trip through the mountains with my hubby here.|
|Oh I dream about how beautiful and relaxing Hawaii is. I want to go back so bad. I'm pretty sure i have planned at least 10 different trips to go back but one day it will work out. I will get to show Sterling why i fell in LOVE with Hawaii!|
Paul is one lucky man...Andrea is the best travel companion ever! These video's show why we always had so much fun traveling together! I just love this girl! Plus when i decided to eat a snack bag of Oreo's for lunch that i stole from Lake Powell since i had no money.....Yes Andrea pulls out a can of Tuna which she too brought with her! We were meant to be friends for eternity!
For now I will just dream. My day will come. I just wounder what I will get first.....a camera or a baby in my belly? Um its fun to think about what is to come in my life but I also need to slow down and enjoy the life that I'm living now. Heavenly Father has a plan for us and I know in due time if its right I will get to do all the things I dream about! I just need to focus on my great life now! I have a bad habit of looking forward to the future and not enjoying my life while I'm living it! So i will enjoy my time here in Salmon and I will love every minute of it!
