A Look Back on 28

 I'm 2 months into 29 and it's already been a wild ride.  But before I get any further into 29, I can't forget about all that God did in my life during year 28.  I sat and reflected on my 28th year right before turning 29 and never hit publish.  I'm not sure why.  But I'll hit it now and hope maybe it will hit home with at least someone, some day.  A look back on my 28th year....

LIVE FURTHERMORE - Behind The Project

I was given the great privilege of having my work featured at a local boutique called Share and Do Good in Downtown Fullerton for their monthly art walk.  The only parameters around the project were to keep the theme "Share Their Stories" in mind.  I wasn't sure exactly who the "their" part of that was as I thought about it all year.  I knew that God would show me exactly who that was in His perfect timing.

Driving into the winding Hollywood Hills on a bright Saturday morning already felt like magic.  I had never been to the Houdini Estate, the mansion where Mr. Harry Houdini, world class magician, lived years ago.  But that was the destination plugged into my GPS.  Craig and Courtney Massie invited friends and family (and photographers) to this venue to celebrate their marriage.
