"If you aren't willing to look stupid, nothing great is ever going to happen to you. - Greg House"Today, I told someone I was 26 and a half. I don’t know what drove me to say that and the only reason I’m even aware of that fact is that my kitty’s birthday is also in April and she’s 6 months. I’ve been pretty out of it lately but there’s a lot happening in my life – most of it anxiety inducing because apparently being an adult means I’m going to get rid of safety nets, get a little crazy and drive people around me crazy.

October 17, 2011 is the day I sent in incorporation papers for PQ Productions and have cut my last safety net so that I can focus on my business 100%.

November 14, 2011 will be the day I give my first presentation at a conference on personal branding & blogging.  (If you’re in the area, you should definitely come to CrushIQ. Don’t miss the early bird pricing!)

By the time 2012 rolls around, I may have completely made my dreams come true or have failed miserably. All I know is that I won’t regret a minute of it.

I’m incredibly lucky to have a fiance who gives me his full support, even though things may be a little scary right now.  My best friend has been patient with me, and I’m so glad I’ll get to see her in December because I need some quality time before time gets away from us and the next thing you know, she’s by my side in her Maid of Honor dress on the happiest day of my life.

I have come a long way from who I was 6 months ago, let alone a year ago. I can’t even think about what a mess I was 2 years ago and how I fought tooth and nail to keep my head above water.

So, at the halfway point between 26 and 27, I’m without a safety net, except for the love and support of the ones nearest to my heart, and all the passion in the world.

On to the fun stuff…

On the wedding front, Andrew & I had our engagement shoot last week. The lovely Rachel from Hello, Gorgeous Photography drove down from Jersey with her assistant, Meghan, and we had a BLAST. Here are a couple of my favorite teasers.

This is my absolute favorite.

  1. 1) Cute engagement shots! You guys really look so happy – especially in that first one.
    2) I’d like to get back to counting your age in half-year increments. It makes me feel like a kid, *plus* then you get to celebrate your half birthday.


  2. Congrats on all the good stuff that is happening for you!! You and Andrew are adorable 🙂
