Birthday Celebration Week

Hip Hip hooray, today is my birthday! I love my birthday, it’s MY day, and it makes me happy.  I’ve heard some friends say that they don’t care about their birthday anymore, but I think it’s because others in their life don’t do a good enough job of making them feel special. With my birthday week, I want to CHANGE that, I have some fun suggestions that we can all do to help make others feel special on their birthdays! So I’ve declared it my Birthday Celebration Week, with lots of fun planned!

So far, I haven’t cared too much about getting older, because I’ve had so many life adventures as each year passes. I love to travel, and I decided this year I’d venture off to Tennessee for my birthday, so that’s where I am today!  Follow along on Instagram to see the fun as it happens.

I am SO very excited to announce that I’ll be celebrating ALL.WEEK.LONG everything to do with BIRTHDAYS!!! I’ve got some surprises up my sleeve, and I can’t wait to share it all with you!

I’m starting the party off with some Giveaways! If you haven’t heard, I love to help people Say NO to Auto on their fancy cameras. I wrote a few little books, have taught workshops, and last year made my workshop on Video! I’ve also teamed up with a talented business lady to co-write another book for those of you that want to start a photography business–watch for that, out soon.

What’s a birthday without presents? Besides all the fun that is coming your way this week, I’ve got some giveaways for you today!

************BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY**********

I’m going to give away 36 e-books, because today I am 36. The winners will choose between Say NO to Auto and Get Focused, depending on your skill level. I’ll also give away 6 Say NO to Auto video workshops.
