It's the little things....

I wasn't having a very good day yesterday....I was feeling overwhelmed with editing, guilty for being so busy and not being with my family, sick with a super bad headache, stressing over finances...I literally crawled in bed at around 3pm and stayed there...all night.

During that time I took a long nap, did some praying, watched American Idol, hugged and snuggled with my kiddos (it was short-lived, they are almost 10 and 13, they don't seem to enjoy it as much as I do! ) and stayed off my editing computer...just went online on my was needed, time for a break...

When I woke up this morning, I was still feeling a little "blah" Headache is still lingering and I'm leaving for Cali next week not to mention that my "to-do" list is taller than me! How in the world can I get it all done??

Then an amazing thing happened...well, actually a few of them!!!

After my sessions this morning (first birthday and baby plan 9 month session) I sat down at my computer to try to get a little work done. I went to email first and I received an email from The Organic Bloom offering to be a sponsor for my was a big pick-me-up! Then I got on FB and found out that I was in the running to be the FL featured photog on a vendor big pick-me-up! Then I sorted through emails and fb messages...inquires for weddings, workshops, messages from clients saying "thank-you"...I started feeling overwhelmed again but in a good way...overwhelmed with gratefulness, in awe of what GOD has done for me, so blessed, so humbled by it all and yes, those of you who know me...I sat and cried like a baby...yep...the ugly cry too...

This journey that I am on is so unreal...I still can't believe what is happening...God is so stinkin' good to me and my family, I don't feel like I deserve it, who am I that HE is mindful of me...WOW...that is all I can say...

Until next time...



  1. I can't think of a more deserving person. Congratulations, Julie!

  2. Love you sister...You deserve it!!

  3. I cried just reading this! Thank you for the reminder, as I get drenched in work sometimes and the guilt of not being with my family as much. I need to remember how grateful I am that God has paved the way and given me the opportunities He has. He will never give us more than we can handle. I truly can not tell you how much I appreciate how raw and vulnerable you are!
