what the future has in store for us.

Life is a funny thing. It turns upside down when you least expect it with many possibilities and adventures.
One of these adventures, for me, was Mortal Muses.

It has been so much fun to be part of such a wonderful inspiring community which never failed to amaze me.  You pushed me to get out more, shoot more, become someone during this year I wouldn't have been without you.  Every participant contributing to the pool, every one commenting, just makes me so happy for what we have created here.  A positive community about sharing pictures, inspiring each other and cheering each other on.

As I joined one year ago, I thought Tammy might be crazy to ask me to contribute.  I agreed and here we are after one year that changed us all because we came together, made something as Mortal Muses work so wonderfully. I am so glad I got to know all the muses. You know there is growing more in a year than just the passion. Friendship, kindness and sometimes love. Yes, I totally admit it. I love every muse. Contributor or not.

Slowly we leave the first year and enter the second with many hopes and expectations in the great things there might come. But just as life works I will be devoting my free time after graduating as a pediatric nurse to a new job. Some might say it is even more meaningful than any job in the world.  As you might know from my blog or flickr, I will be expecting my first child in late December.  This is so exciting and adventurous for me.

Although I need to devote myself fully to this new job coming up, I will not be completely gone from everywhere, I promise. You can still find me here and there and if you feel like talking, send me an email. I will be glad to hear from all of you. In life I think many things are changing and maybe some of us need new adventures, new projects, new loves and new inspiration.

Things are changing and so is every one of us all in the world. It will be different, but good. Time to grow, to be made into the person we need to be.

Now onto greater things...
I will be handing my spot as a muse to a new contributor, making room for more inspiration by wonderful Gilly. I am honored to have her take my musing spot because she is such a lovely, inspiring soul and you will all have so much fun with her. It will be a new beginning for me, for us (the muses) and you as our community. Great things will come, I just know it.

It is hard to say goodbye and I leave with tears and a smile, yet I know life will be good, like the pictures below by Austin.Lee.Barron and by sdanddoublee.
