Ephesians 2:10

"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

Tonight I went for a drive. I had a mission, but took more time than usual driving because amid the nasty weather all day, everything was... sparkling.
I love Thanksgiving, but I love the week after Thanksgiving more. Why? Because that's when all the lights make their way on the trees, people decorate their homes in fresh garlands,and gold and silver trimmings. Every front window faintly has twinkle lights adorning their christmas trees through their curtains and you can almost smell the spirit of Christmas. The excitement of this season is exhilirating in itself, but this year it's absolutely impossible to not grin from Lia Sophia adorned ear to ear. :)

Last week was one of the most stressful of my year. But I didn't buckle, I kept on going because 1. I want this so so much. and 2. I was having way more fun than I let on. Last week, in between 10 second moments to breathe before the phone rang again, answering 25 emails a day, the flu, and forgetting to eat until 9:30 at night ( i know.), I realized that I was so happy. I have never never never loved a job. I have never pictured myself doing the same thing for the rest of my life, and not cringing. I have never felt so incredibly fulfilled professionally. And tonight, on this drive while looking at all the lights, I praised God for this.

I pulled into WalMart and was still grinning. I took out my list and shopped for what I needed for home, and when I got all that I got to the bottom of my list and I bubbled with excitement. It read:
Paint for Studio.

I am proud and grateful to announce that jt Photography will be opening a storefront on Jan. 1, 2009 at 137 E. Main Street, Van Wert, Ohio. We are located 2 doors down from Balyeat's, and though it looks like nothing much right now, we will be working hard the entire month of December to be able to open and share our new home with you by Jan. 1st.

Thank you all so much for a wonderful year.
