Alright! So here it is, the scoop on where in the world The Trendy Photographer has been! Its been 10 months and 4 days since my last post.. but not without good reason!
The past 10 months have been spectacular, magnificent, a season of change and pure delight! I’ve spent the past 10 months (and more) figuring out who I am in this new place and learning to call it home. Moving to Charlotte, North Carolina or as many call it The Queen City, has been the happiest, most exciting experience of my life. I’ve learned so much about myself and the world around me. I’ve gained a great sense of independence and freedom, and with that comes a whole new level of personal growth.
I have gained professional experience and found out exactly where it is i’d like to go in my career, and made so many connections with truly good and successful people along the way. I’m now a senior in college, which is by far the happiest thing I could type.
I’ve also found great solace and spiritual refuge in joining the local church. This church is rooted deep with passion and love and I’m so happy to grow in it.
The people I’ve met and friendships I’ve made have added so much to this experience. I think that’s usually the hardest part of finding a new way.. but I’ve been so lucky.
All in all.. I’ve just been happy.
In that, I did lose something. Time. I notice beautiful and inspiring things all around me here.. buildings, landscapes, people, experiences, but outside of noticing those things on the surface, I lost the motivation to write about them and share. I think when we get truly happy, somehow we get lazy as well. We value the little extra time we have so much that we actually end up doing nothing with it. We want to be in our place and shut ourselves off. (or at least I have)
I’ve said many times at the end of a long week how I wish I could just find the time and inspiration to get back to the blog. After an incredible summer of adventure.. I’m going all in!
Thanks for sticking around..
