Thank You

The other day I was gifted with this post from my Dear Friend Anne Lorys.  My heart is filled with such gratitude and I am truly honored to be the recipient of such a beautiful tribute from her.  I met Anne a year ago in Texas and soon found we both shared a passion for photography which has led to a wonderful friendship.  Over the last few months I have gently nudged Anne into taking her camera off of the Auto setting and shooting in full Manual mode. She had some misgivings (like we all do at first) but I kept encouraging her to just give it a try.  I am proud to say that Anne just recently completed her first magazine photo shoot (Manual mode) and the pictures are gorgeous! With Anne’s desire and talent the sky’s the limit for her:)

I am dedicating this Valentine photo to Anne and all of you who continue to follow your own dreams. Keep Shining:)

I want to say a huge Thank You for all of you that took the time to leave such sweet comments on the new site. Your support means the world to me. If you would like to email subscribe or RSS feed, I have added a link on the left sidebar. Or you can follow along on Twitter or Facebook which is also available~ Blessings, Carol

I am headed over to the Raised In Cotton Blog to post more:)

    Beautiful photo, Carol.
    I’ve been to Ann’s blog a few times and know I’ve been inspired while there visiting with her.

    About dreams, we’re truly nothing without them. Let us all dream on!
