Is a word that I would often times disregard in some fashion or another. But, not anymore. Opportunity... Was once a word that I would think of as "it would come again" And. "I can wait until the "next time" to do this, or to go see that." Well, maybe I could wait until the "next time." But,  that may not always be the case. It could be to late. 

Just today I was invited by a friend to spend a day in Vancouver, Canada at some point in the very near future.  I have really come to the realization that this life is short enough as it is. I should welcome all opportunities and take them all in with a big smile! I am not letting this opportunity go down.  I have a whole knew positive outlook on life now.  Things are changing. For the better. Many, many opportunities are coming. 

So. When opportunity comes knocking at your door, go for it!

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. -Thomas A. Edison

 Never  lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting.  - Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Wonderful Opportunity

We (as in our 4-H Club) had the wonderful opportunity to go up in a helicopter or plane and tour the Skagit Valley. It was an amazing experience, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity. The photos were the fun part.  Totally different then being flat on the ground - it was fun!  If you ever have the chance to go up in a helicopter/small plane, DO IT... :D

A Quote

Just thought I'd share this quote with you .

E.B. White once wrote - "I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor the world. This makes it hard to plan the day."

Portrait Time

I had the opportunity to photograph a friend and her siblings last week. It was a fun session and I hope you enjoy the pictures. Here are a few of my favourites.

The Cutest 3 Year Old in the World

Anna Belle is one of the most cutest, adorable and sweetest 3 year olds I have ever known. She is like a dear little sister to me. I am so thankful Anna lives down the road. (The lighting was rather harsh during this photo-shoot, but here are some of the okay shots.)

I am the statue of liberty. 
Her smile is soooooooo precious.  Don't you agree? 
I am a ballerina. 
...And, she is quite the natural model too!
1, 2, 3, Leap for Joy
The End....

Hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!
