"You can do anything, but not everything." ~David Allen
That is a hard statement for me to digest! I sure like to think I can! Hello out there! What happened to the last year? I think I said that last year at this time too! Well let me just tell ya!
First, this was my busiest year since starting my photography business some 8 years ago. I did more weddings than ever. Along with many family, kid, baby and senior sessions. That kept me running enough I had no time for this neglected blog. So if you quesitoned if I was still in business, I am! And staying very busy! Thank you to everyone who continues to allow me to share your milestones with you. It is so awesome to have taken a senior picture for someone and then shoot their engagement, wedding and now birth of their first child. I can't express how much it means to me to be a part of this! Being here at the Lake of the Ozarks full time now, I have been so fortunate to meet so many different people, each with their own unique story. I literally have the best job in the world!
I say this every year BUT I am going to try and keep this blog updated. I have enlisted a little help!
As if this was not enough to keep me on my toes, we decided to open up a shoppe in Eldon, Mo. You can check it out on facebook at Bagnell Trading Co. or go to www.bagnelltradingco.com. Opening a shoppe has been a learning experience for sure. It's not what I want it to be just yet but I am working and learning every day. I have been blessed with a very warm welcome from the community. This holiday season has left me feeling overwhelmed with support not only at the shoppe but with photography. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of you.
And then my husband through me a curveball and decided to expand our construction company. Lake Ozark Fire and Water Renovation and Restoration was born. We specialize in fire and smoke damage, water damage and mold remediation along with the services of new construction and remodeling we have always offered. So far, we are off and running with the help of some awesome people.
That wore me out just writing this! We have had quite a year! When we decided to move to the lake full time we came on a wing and a prayer. We love living at the lake and I know I have said it here before, but we wake up every day thanking God and feeling very blessed not only with the support of the community and friends here but also the support from our Greater KC area friends and family.
Going to take a week of some r & r with the family and then I am off in running in the new year! I wanted to take some time to update you all here. We wish you a Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for a Wonderful New Year!
