I remember the feeling I had this time of year last year. I had only been in Cambodia for a few weeks. I was alone. I had missed Thanksgiving with my family and was about to miss Christmas. It was a confusing time. There was a sense of feeling lost and strangely grounded at the same time. One foot on land and one foot mid air. I was certainly frightened and confused. I wasn’t sure I had made the right decision to come to Cambodia. But there was also this knowledge that everything will eventually work out that made me feel okay with not being…okay.
And now it’s been a year and life is good. Amazing even. I am beyond happy. I work with an awesome group of healing art therapists. My clients are Cambodian children who have gone through trauma and they are powerful, insightful, strong. I have wonderful wedding clients for 2012 and I can’t wait to document their weddings and party (not too hard) with! I have a wonderful fiance (oh did I not ever tell you about our engagement?) and we’re planning…well, planning on planning our wedding in 2013. So I can’t complain about life. It has been so good to me.
Plus, Sonya of Bliss Creations emailed to let me know that Mary and Hugh’s wedding has been published in a Hong Kong magazine called “In.” It’s been a little over a year but happy anniversary to Mary and Hugh. I’m thinking of you two. It was a wonderful day and I can’t get over how lucky I was to have the honor to document your love.
