dreaming awake

yesterday i was surprised by wonderful images from this gallery show.
i knew Tracey of Shutter Sisters was putting something together for the Mom 2.0 Summit.  incorporating our images in some way.  never in my minds eye did i imagine this.  i have never had my images hung anywhere before, not even a coffee shop, let alone a gallery show.  heck i barely ever print any of my own images except ones of the kids, and even then never anything larger than an 8x10 ever.  so seeing Tracey's photos of the show overwhelm me.  it continues to bring me to tears.  i am bursting with all kinds of emotions.  pride, awe, love, excitement, joy, and yes disbelief....  me?  a mom with a camera and a passion that was only recently realized?  yes me.  and other moms just like me.  
this is taking me time to process.  i keep clicking back and gazing at the images.  big, framed, beautiful pieces of ourselves hung on beautiful walls in Houston TX.  
making this even sweeter is the fact that i am sharing the walls with friends
big big love going on here.

so, dare to dream!
really, go ahead!
because dreams really can come true.

I know, I KNOW! When Tracey approached me I was excited, nervous, happy, honored... I could go on and on. But I know what you mean. It is one thing to take the pictures and have our own connections to our work - but to have someone else look at it, think about it, and say "yes" is a very empowering thing. Congrats to you :)

That is awesome, Kristin! It must be an amazing feeling to see your work displayed in such a grand manner! It deserves to be. No doubt! You need to have some big ones made for your house now so you can feel that way all the time. Oh and thank you for the reminder to dream big! Congrats to you!
