I have to laugh when I think about where I was a year ago. I won’t say that things were bad… just lots of uncertainties. I started 2012 very scared. I was terrified not knowing what each day would bring or when work would come in. Never did I imagine such a fruitful first year of freelancing. Nor did I expect to travel as much as I did. Italy, Kentucky, Ohio, Oregon, Maine. Maybe that’s why these last 12 months flew by the way they did. Lots and lots of traveling.
2013 is looking to be an exciting year. There are projects in the works, trips planned, and the arrival of a new family member (my sister is due in March). I’m still getting used to the life of a freelance photographer, but I don’t think I’ve ever been happier than I am now. And I can’t wait to see what’s in store.
I know that lobster isn’t as cheap for everyone as it is for us in New England, but if you happen to splurge on some crustaceans to celebrate the arrival of the new year, I think there are two ways of preparing them: 1) with butter and lemon or 2) this bright and beautiful salad with fennel, avocado and citrus. One is a lot healthier than the other (it’s the salad), which means you won’t feel guilty if you have a couple slices of chocolate cake after (or a bottle of champagne… because if you’re going to eat lobster, you must have champagne. It’s a fact).
