SOAR Update

A few of you have asked about the status of my application to the SOAR scholarship program, and I should have posted something sooner. Please forgive me! I found out the day before my birthday that three lovely ladies other than myself were selected. I'm sure that the recipients will blow us away this year with their growth - I can't wait to see their blogs!

As I said in my video and in my first posting, I plan to use this as an outlet for following the SOAR exercises. They just kicked off and we have a teleconference on February 18th. So even though over 100 ladies weren't selected for the scholarship, Me Ra and her team are keeping us included!

A couple weekends ago, my friends Mike and Robin were married. Aside from their wedding being one of the most joyous I have attended in years, it was special to me because I was able to meet one of last year's SOAR winners, Jen Armstrong! She and her husband were Mike and Robin's photographers and from what I could tell, they're going to be very happy with their portraits.

After the wedding, and without my knowledge, my sweet hubby wrote Jen a series of emails asking for input and ordered me Me Ra's instructional videos. He's already been so supportive of me and I can't wait to see what we can accomplish together.

Also, a few weeks my friend and office neighbor, Connie, needed a "professional headshot" and was told that I could do that... So I did! It turned out great, I think. What do you think?

I have another blog update in the works, and since I'll be home with a sick kiddo tomorrow, I plan to get some more work done! See you soon!
