Geesh it feels like forever since I've blogged but I have a good excuse. I've been super busy. I promised myself that this yr will be my hustle yr. Sure I'm used to hustling and getting things done but I will admit that I slowed down a bit after getting pregnant last yr so I have a lot of catching up to do. I've been jotting down my to do list for the next 5 months and it's LOOONNNG!! But I love it that way. It makes the days go by faster and it gets me motivated to keep progressing in life and that's exactly what I want 2010 to be for me. I want to focus on progressing in life with my spirituality, family, friends, finances, career and any other arena that I may have left out. ;)
Anywhoo, back to the reason why I'm blogging right now. It's finally here!!!! I'm on the cover of the January issue of Military Spouse magazine and the issue is finally out. YAY!!!! Well, actually I'm sharing it with Chace, he's in my tummy, lol. I still can't believe I actually got to be on the cover of this magazine. What's even more amazing is the response I've gotten from family and friends. They've been soooo supportive. I don't know why I'm so shocked that they would be, they've always been great people. I guess I'm just humbled by the whole experience. I felt so at home and so at peace with getting the opportunity to do one of the things I love to do. If I could wake up and go on photo shoots, a film set or a commercial shoot just for a few hrs every day for the rest of my life as my job, I would be ever so happy and ever so grateful.
I'm loving all these pics from the shoot. I have to give shout outs to a great team. The photographer Liisa Roberts is absolutely AMAZING!!! The jewelry was done by Jane Metcalf who is a creative genius with jewels and the cute maternity clothes were provided by Hot Mama Maternity. I must say that these are by far the cutest maternity clothes I've seen. I don't remember having such cute looking clothes when I was pregnant with Mekhi or Ethan. Last but definitely not least, I have to thank the amazing Dhyana Leung for making my face look absolutely flawless and making me feel glamorous.
We got to shoot at a gorgeous home located in Lanakai, HI with spectacular views of the ocean and lusch grounds everywhere. It was the perfect summer home and within walking distance from the beach. I had the best time ever with these people and of course I would love to get the opportunity to do more shoots. Now that I've put that out into the universe, hopefully it'll happen for me this yr! :)
