Some good friends of ours, Glen and Riarna, came over for dinner one day and Riarna brough her camera. We had a great time running around, laughing and having all sorts of fun, while Riarna took random shots to help us get some new family photos. I hope you enjoy these shots as much as we did. You can check them all out on my Flickr page.
Many times we set a goal or dream we would like to achieve, then when something changes, we abandon the dream thinking it wasn’t meant to be. You have to realize that sometimes when you state a dream, you haven’t really thought it through 100%. Sometimes it takes the process of time and change to figure out what the achievement of that dream really looks like. Sometimes new information necessitates a new approach. It may not be exactly what you thought it would be, but it is still your dream.
