Rarely do I actually get to do my hair and make up for work since I work so early, but I worked later today so I was excited!

Beautiful sunrise that I got to witness this morning through the drive-thru at work! Customers were definitely in a better mood because of it!

Day 10

The sunset from my house this evening.

I apologize as you can see that this was multiple photos put together, but I didnt have a ton of time to piece it together as I need to get to bed since I have to wake up at 2:30am for work!
P.S. The sunset was way prettier in person, this photo doesn't do it justice!

Day 7

This is Jessica.  She is a new Shift Supervisor at my Starbucks and I got the privilege of taking some portraits of her to create a flier about her recent promotion! :-) (I'm in charge of partner recognition at our store...).

Day 1

Excited for what this year has in store. :-)

365 Thousand Words: About This Blog

If you hadn't caught on from the title of this blog, I decided that I want to try to take one photo a day, for a year. Now, I have thought about doing this for a long time to simply provoke me to take more photos to improve by photography skills. But, that's not why I'm doing it. I simply want to document this year in the best way that I know how, through photos. This year is a big year for us. Getting married, finding a place to live, finding "real" jobs and everything along with that. Dirk and I decided when we got engaged to focus on enjoying our engagement instead of focusing so hard on the wedding and letting it stress us out.  We want to focus more on our relationship and our upcoming marriage than our wedding.  And when having that focus in mind, planning the wedding has been so much more fun!  I've loved being engaged and am so excited for this next year. So... Here is to documenting this amazing year through photos!

P.S. yes, 95% of these photos will probably be from my iPhone! :-)
