It’s beautiful.

I love all things lovely, and valentines day just happens to be one of my favorite holidays.  Will and I have already decided that we are going to a marriage seminar at our church, followed by a sweet date at home.  Nothing too fancy, but very “us.”  He’s going to cook for me, and I’m going to wear a pretty dress.  I love Valentine’s day.

And February for that matter.  It’s already given us a small taste of Spring in the warmer temperatures.  Granted, most days are still in the 40’s, tomorrow will be in the 70’s!  Oh I’m so happy.
“February : the second month of the year, considered the last month of winter.” I like the sound of that.

February is also the month for dreaming.  Weddings and sessions are slow, and I keep it that way on purpose.  I am dreaming and organizing, planning on many new changes to Nancy Ray Photography this year.  I look at my calendar, with all the weddings, sessions, and travel, and I get a little overwhelmed.  February is the time for me to stop, breathe, and get my systems in place so I can have a balanced life when the craziness arrives.

So here are my February goals…

Paint my master bathroom
Celebrate Valentine’s Day
Have a lovely time at the Sutherland Bridal Show
WPPI + Airplanes and Blazers + MTH reunion
Begin working on my brand refresh
Get my emails down to zero
Finish a Novel
Shoot my first 2011 out-of-state wedding
Organize my new iMac (folders, photos, apps)
Deliver lots of wedding albums and mark almost all 2010 folders as “complete”
Design and order samples from my new album company
