A few months ago, some friends and I were hanging out and we started talking about taking a photography class. Normally when things like this come up over drinks, it sounds like a great idea, but does not come to fruition.
When said friend brought the idea back up via email a few weeks later, I jumped on the opportunity to strengthen my "photography skills". I've always thought about doing this, but probably wouldn't have pursued it on my own. We decided on a day and time and got ourselves registered. Last night was our first class, and to say that I was excited is a complete understatement.
The teacher was awesome, very passionate about photography, and easy to understand. Of course last night was just the intro, so lots of camera exploration and lecture, but over the next seven weeks we have so much to cover. There's even homework! I can't explain how exciting this is to actually use my brain again! :)
Also having a night away each week where I don't have to feed, bathe, and put kids to bed is an added bonus. I'm thankful my husband is supportive. I'm thankful the tuition cost isn't an obstacle. I'm thankful for friends that share my passion. This is one happy girl right here.
