Work in progress

I’ve always loved the idea of blogging, but I have an attention span like my 3 year old. Plus, I never felt the NEED to blog. But here lately, I’m starting to do things, for me. And if not one person reads my blogs, I will. I will look back on the days and the things going on in my life and laugh, cry, or do what I have always done in my journals….WHAT WAS I THINKING? I have recently gotten back into the modeling scene, and I love it. I love being able to meet others in the business that love art and fashion as much as I do, if not more. I have become friends with one of my photographers, Chris Bartelski, and his killer wife, Allie. I read HER blog the other day and she posted her “life list.” It inspired me to make one of my own. After all, I want to live life to the fullest just like everyone else. I hope my list inspires others to make one of their own. It’s my motivation for the future.
