In the Year of 2009

I cannot believe this year is over. It was a big year for me, personally and professionally. I–officially and For Real–launched my business.

whimzie - Great work, Monica! I was trying to pick my favorite but it's really too hard. I guess if I had to choose, I'd pick the one of the bride and her dad where you see the tears on her face? Love that one!!
