I have seriously been so grateful for all of the work that I have been honored to have. No, for real. I can't believe that all of my clients are so beautiful inside and out and have allowed me a glimpse into their world as a family, as a couple, as a person. More than anything, I am grateful that I was able to go to Chihuahua and to California to visit those that I haven't seen in more than 6 months.
You know, it's weird sometimes because I forget that I live in an entirely new place. Sometimes, the streets are familiar to me and I completely lose the notion that I am not from here... Could be that Tepic is just a friendly place and so it makes me feel like I've found my home. My husband and I talked about this a while ago and all the places we've lived and how Nayarit just feels right.
We feel like it's just right for us. Perfect weather, great people, cheap drinks (haha), and lots of things to see and do. I don't think I've found a downside yet... maybe the rain? It rains almost every day here. Since July, we have probably seen 3 weeks without rain. But I can't really say that's a downside, the rain is refreshing and since it's never really cold, it's perfect.
Everyone should move here haha! I know I sound like an advertisement, yet I suppose that when you truly fit in somewhere, you feel that way about the place. If I could sum up this place with one word, I believe the only word that would do it justice would be Ambition. I feel like Nayarit is full of ambition that overflows this small state.
A little update on what/where I have been this past few months:
- Got to see family in Chihuahua
- Photographed an intimate and beautiful wedding while in Chihuahua
- Photographed a very important engagement session :).
- Took a bus ride to California
- Went on a camping moto-ride with my sister to Joshua Tree and made new friends!
- Celebrated my mom's birthday
- Got to photograph 9 beautiful families! Yay!
- Flew back to Nayarit to be with my hubby and pup (whoo hoo!)
- Flew out to Cancun to photograph another beautiful wedding (coming soon!)
I felt like I was on a world tour, haha. I am super grateful for all that God has allowed me to do for my clients and for those who are dear to me. There is nothing more gratifying than that!
No black friday shopping for me, thank goodness! However, I will be working on a wonderful wedding and a few other things today and sip on some good coffee all while listening to the rain outside, pup at my side.
