today i want to share with you my version of Jen's week 4 edition.
these pages are titled YOU.
jen shares an amazing story of her need to create and how that has progressed throughout the years.
if you have not read it yet, you should take some time now.
i know it will touch you like it did me.

her inspiration included having a photo shoot done for these pages.
well...i cheated...and just dug up some recent photos of me and let them tell the story.

part of my story includes lots of she'isms.
she decided to be the best she ever.
she felt the need to create.
she knew creativity would be part of her life.

my photos included moments of being in the midst of other creatives.
this photo above was taken  by maggie at crystal cove in orange county.
experiencing an amazing breakfast together with heidi and the team.
capturing a moment in time.
a time that means so much to me being with these other amazing creatives.

i loved her prompt about finding photos that describe you and your creative life.
there were so many ways to interpret this.
i included a photo of my blog.
a chalk art piece at my church expressing the need to tell my story.
my first thing in the morning cup of coffee, and pen and journal. always. so me.
the number 7. because that is a huge part of me right now with my growing family.
my list of 1,000 gifts.
the  declaration to make pretty stuff.

one of my most favorite moments at CHA in Anaheim with Maggie having fun with the camera.

what strikes me so much about this particular exercise in creativity...
while jen wrote so much about where her creative story came from...
my photos and words were more about where i am right now.
the reality that i am right now where i need to be creatively.
and the hope that there is more to come. but the need to live in the now is so important.
and i am so excited about that.
