Life Changer

I started blogging back in 2007.
Wanted to redesign my blog and bought a copy of Photoshop Elements.
After a few months, others came to me for graphic design projects.
A few years later, I launched my graphic design studio.
Bought a rebel to take better photos to post on the blog.
Upgraded to CS3 & most recently, CS5.
Visited a few bloggers across the country in November 2009. That trip included a 2 day stop in Chicago.
Decided that I would move to Chicago, where I knew no one.
Packed my belongings and arrived on August 1, 2010.
Upgraded to a 7D and started booking photo shoots.
Made some amazing friends through blogging.
Invited Alaina to my Christmas party in 2010 where we met for the first time.
Photographed Alaina for Glitter Guide.
Alaina and I met for coffee to discuss a possible project in August 2011. Yes, I’m talking about The Everygirl.
We traveled to NYC in November, 2011.
My apartment was featured in Rue Magazine in January 2012. 
We launched The Everygirl on February 22, 2012.
Did another shoot for Glitter Guide.
Traveled to Boston for the first time a few photo shoots including the home and office of Erin Gates.
(her home tour goes up next week)

I’ve been in Chicago almost two years, and move to my new apartment next week. I’ve met people I never would have met, launched a new business, and have had some of the most wonderful experiences in my life the past few years.
All because I started a blog.
