Oh wow I truly have so very much to be thankful for and really am seeing this more every single day. I must introduce my brand new grandson though. Maxwell Talmadge was born on August 19th. I love being a grandma! My granddaughter who is five makes me smile so big every time we get to spend time together. Last night I took here to a college football team at the university where I am majoring in art / photography. She had the best time and so did I. I just love to watch her enthusiasm for life. At that age every thing from the game to getting to hug a cheerleader that she didn't even know was amazing to her.
I don't have time really to go into detail about the not so good stuff that brought me here. But that's ok cause I do not look back often. I will say I was in quite a funk when I first moved into this little apartment last August but over this past summer something really snapped in me and I've felt better ever since.
This is a quote that I love:
“Don’t only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine.”
― Ludwig van Beethoven
I am indeed exciting about my craft, my passion which is photography. I am excited about how much I am being given the opportunity to learn at Jacksonville State University here in Jacksonville, AL. Honestly I am just pepped up about life in general and it's been a long long time since I could say that.
I have however gotten off track with my Spark People program so today I start fresh with trackng my food, getting my water in and meeting goal for fitness minutes each week.
