It’s no secret that I’m always dreaming about travel possibilities. Like a drug addict, travel consumes me. I could be in the middle of an enthralling conversation with a celebrity and I’d still find a way to direct my thoughts to new destinations. Working on sponsored posts for companies like Contiki has only increased my travel obsession. Have you ever wondered what places top the list for travel writers? Contiki has asked me to think about the most popular destinations for people to travel in the New Year. While my own personal list might not statistically be the most popular destinations, I’d bet that most of the places have a spot on your list. This year, Namibia, St. Lucia, Germany, Latvia, and Austria topped my list of favorite travel destinations. Here are my top bucket list picks for 2015.

Bliss: complete happiness, great joy, paradise, or heaven

My source of Great Joy often happens when I am behind the bars of my motorcycle, heading down a winding back road following an old New England stone wall… blue skies and puffy clouds!

Not my bike... mine's much smaller but it's clearly a beautiful day for someone's ride!

‘Tis the (upcoming) season…

Breathe, just breathe, the busiest season of a photographer’s year is almost at an end…

9 Mini Sessions to go this weekend… I can make it! I can do this… I will reward myself with a MASSAGE!

How’s everyone else surviving? What do you do to make it through this amazing, busy, rewarding, nerve-wracking season of photography?

My non-Photographer friends don’t understand why this is such a crazy time (yet, they want their photos done as well LOL)

So… now that the crazy (in a good way) is winding down. What do you do to build your business for the slow season? Are you a photographer mom like me who looks forward to the wind down so you can WIND up to the Christmas season with your families?

Personally, I will be making my list to Santa… I’ve been good.

I will tell you a secret… I LOVE LOVE LOVE the next holiday! Thanksgiving, and here is why.

Thanksgiving is all about just that, being Thankful. Spending time with your family, EATING. No gifts to give, no costumes to sew (or resulting 10lbs from candy eating). No eggs to dye. Just family. Ohhhh… and mashed potatoes! Love me some mashed potatoes… (add another 5lbs… lol)

OK… I am putting it out there…

I, Stephanie, am signing up for the 365 Photo Challenge. I take photos EVERY single day, so the real challenge will be remembering to take the time to POST them on here… I am actually going to create a NEW page within this site specifically FOR this purpose!!!

So here goes… I will begin this challenge next Sunday!!! Somebody better kick my butt if I miss a day!

Who wants to keep me on track?
