Elesia.jpgI love meeting new friends. Especially friends that can challenge me and who really want to understand how I see the world. Friends that can be remarkable with me…..and that is sooooo sooo how Eliesa is (Ms. Photogen Inc to many of you!) :)

She came over last week and she shared. To to say that I had the time of my life would be an understatement. We shared coffee, fears, inspiration, stories, ideas and even some Brie for lunch. We talked about the photography industry, crafting (all because of my obsession of course), social media, and blogs. And we tried to wrap our minds around what makes our life complete….it was rad. Simply rad.

Eliesa gave me the kick-in-the-pants I so desperately needed to launch myself into this 2010 year. We made goals, not just clean-the-house and walk-the-dog-tomorrow goals but LOFTY ones….big ones (in my eyes). I was able to dream about my large house on a farm someday with many pugs and an abundance of gardens….we talked about what makes me happy and who I am at the core of Emily. Gol, It was awesome!

I really, whole-heartedly believe that photography is just a piece of how I see the world…a piece among knitting, sewing, crafting, attempting to cook, gardening, and loving! I LOVE that I am able to make my living at a job that I am head-over-heals about and I also LOVE that being an artist is something that I am able to do every day…….

It wasn’t surprising that I saw MY FAVORITE quote from Henry Moore in Eliesa’s little book….

If you are ever in need of a good conversation, Eliesa is your girl! Her business is thriving and she is inspirational to her core! Thank you E for everything you shared…..myself and my business are better because of our time together! :) Honestly.

    And we want the same kind of house — on a farm with gardens. Oh man.
    Sounds like you had an amazing time with Eliesa. Awesome.
