Happy 4th Blogiversary!

Wow, four years.  A lot can happen in four years.  A lot HAS happened in four years.  There have been many times where I have thought that maybe keeping up with this blog was too much and that really I should let it go.  Despite the fact that I have been horrible at posting, I am at the point where my blog has a lot of sentimental meaning to me.  I can look back over the years and see both growth in myself, in my family, and in my photography.  Because of this blog, I have been able to make friends from places far away, some where I have yet to step foot in.  Sitting here, I can tell you that I am so thankful for this little corner of the internet world where I have been able to just "talk".  I am even more grateful for those of you who have been following me on my journey to . . . somewhere.  Ha ha!  You all have helped to make this adventure so much more fun and meaningful.  Thank you.

So where do I see myself and this blog going in the year ahead?  Well, I finally opened up my photography business here in Wilmington under the name The Reverie Tree, so that's going to be a big directional pull and hopefully a great motivator to create and make photographs.  There are projects that have been floating in my head for years that really need to come to fruition and I hope we'll start to see that happen this year.  I'd like to get published somewhere.  I've got my eye on a few places I plan to submit to and hope to one day grace the pages of.  Probably the biggest thing I want to see happen this year is a way that I can give back to my community.  Locally.  Nationally.  Globally.  Not because it's what everyone else is doing, but because I have a lot to be thankful for and I feel a great need to see that any talent that I may possess be given back in some way.  So much of the time I think we get caught up in the hype of giving that too often we lose sight of what's really important:  a genuinely deep experience where one's heart is not just moved, but changed.  I need this to happen, not just for myself, but also as an example for my daughter.  I want her to grow up knowing the importance of making positive changes in the world around her, and especially in the life of another because I truly believe this is what God intended us to be here for.

Thank you again for coming to sit down to a cup of tea with me, and letting me share my reveries.  :)

  1. Well done Kat! Four years since you set the blog up! Wow! How time flies. Mine had a very quiet 5th birthday in February. So glad to hear you've taken the plunge into pro photography. You are a brilliant photographer. Always liked the warmth of your images, both visually and towards your subjects. Love the business name btw ;)

  2. I think it's been 4 years we met through the blogs too? Happy day! It's always a pleasure to see your photos, what you write and see that you are evolving, growing and we are witness of the growth. I came back to read this post and see your portfolio which looks great.
    All the best,

  3. Rich! I thank YOU for gently PUSHING me to
    start blogging. Ha ha! Seriously, it was your
    encouraging words that urged me to do it.
    And I'm glad that I did. You're like the
    "father" of the blog. Ha ha!

    Zee! Yes, it was after seeing your blog featured
    in the second issue of Artful Blogging that I
    reached out and made a few comments to your
    beautiful work. And because of that, I now have
    your beautiful friendship. It's amazing how far
    we've all come. :)


Just so you know. . . you've already brightened my day!
