Relevant 2011: A Blogger Photographer Dream Come True

I woke up this morning scrambling for a list. It pays to be prepared when a new month is snorting at the starting line and people are watching on the sidelines to see if you'll win.

May has broken out of the gate like a swift horse raring to taste the finish line; eager to leave the rest of the world in the dust. My feet firmly planted in the stirrups, I'm clinging on these reins and bending in to the wind. "She's not going to buck me off", I tell myself.

The fast races come in moments, in days... weeks and months. The racing blurs the view of bigger pictures - life always in motion, meaning caught in a saddle-to-hoof dance.

Every now and then we get to stop and cheer, though. Today was my day.

You would think I just won the Kentucky Derby.

May's racehorse might be sprinting down the track without me (list undone this morning and a calendar bursting with urgent things to attend)... but right now I'm standing in the winner's circle with my bouquet of flowers, happy grin from cheek to cheek.

I'll find a way to enter the race for May today... after the cheers subside.

Right now I'm giddy with the news of a trip to Pennsylvania in October. A trip where I can see bloggers friends I love, PRACTICE WHAT I LOVE [shoot people!], and be filled by messages that are relevant to who I am and what I do...

Just a Jesus-lovin' blogging gal with a big camera -- taking pictures at Relevant for Dayspring: May joy and October dream come true.

Just wanted to swing by and congratulate you on the sponsorship -- so exciting, and I know what you mean about the Kentucky Derby. I woke my husband out of a deep sleep to dance on the bed with the news. He thinks I'm absolutely nuts, I'm sure, but was happy I was happy.

And I'm happy you're happy. :) Hope to meet you there. Congrats again!
