Welp! Today is my birthday! Yeah for birthdays! Every year, I do a post on my birthday and it's totally a time where I reflect back on what I've accomplished and where I want to go! (I know, I know - of course, Eliesa. You would set goals on your birthday...) Really though, I think it is the perfect time to measure my hopes and dreams, because that is what this life is about right? I just looked back on my post from last year and I must say, I am pretty darn proud of myself, because I can check a lot of those things off my list! I have to say though, for this post, I decided to go back through facebook, my phone, twitter and my blog to gather pictures from my favorite moments this year and my mind is blown a bit! I can not believe the amount of new things I have experiences, the amazing new relationships and friendships that I have made and just how much I have actually DONE this year!

I do want to give a BIG thank you to all of you who continue to check into our blog, and truly support everything that Team Photogen Inc is up to! It really means the world to me that there is so much love out there for us and I hope we continue to give that back!

So, onto my goals. This next year, I want to...

Pound the Pavement: I'm always talking about 'taking things to the next level' and everything is perfectly in place! Every time you move up in the world, you start from ground zero again! I'm excited to continue building new relationships and branching out on a national level!

10 &10 Plan: I have this goal that I think will be amazing! It's going to take me a while to get there, but I want to shoot 10 amazing, jaw dropping, destination weddings per year, along with 10 kick-ass-cool editorial gigs. Stay in Touch: This is a returning goal from last year. My friends do mean the world to me and I life is always busy, but I need to keep trying to make these relationships a priority! And I just want to hang out more!

Travel: I still want to take that 3-4 week trip.

Boss Lady: As our team grows (10 of us now!), my roll in leading our companies becomes even more important! I'm trying to build a culture and I want to be the absolute best I can for my crew and my clients!

Workshop: Yep, it's happening. January 2011, some greatness is about to happen. I've been putting this off for about a year and it's finally going to become a reality!

Remember That I am Only One Person: Everything I do is for you. Everything I do is for my team, clients and industry. Everything I do is to inspire. Sometimes I need to remember that I am only one person, but that I am fabulous.

Continue to Inspire: This is what keeps me going. This is the beauty of what I do. Each and every day, I have the opportunity to inspire others. How amazing is that?


So, please, Join me in celebrating one incredible year and an even more fabulous one to come!
