At the beginning of 2010 I set myself some personal goals. They weren’t resolutions, mind you, that would be far too cheesy. And kittens – just so you know – I would never dream of being cheesy.
Just five simple goals, ten words total.
The first one of the list was a single word:
When we neared the end of the year and that one particular goal didn’t seem to be materializing I shrugged it off. Figured I’d just slide it over into the 2011 column, all casual like so nobody would notice. No biggie – it happens.
And then, somewhere between Turkey Day and Auld Lang Syne I got an email from Alex Evjen (the genius behind Ave Styles) who invited me to be a part of The Phoenix First Friday Art Exhibit on March 4th (that’s tomorrow peeps!) at Day|Twelve – an incredible gallery space in downtown Phoenix.
So what, it wouldn’t take place till 2011. The invite came in 2010. I immediately made the executive decision that this totally counted. Mission accomplished. Goal crossed off.
The theme of tomorrow night’s exhibit is STYLE. I will be featuring images from several fabulous urban fashion shoots – and joining some other incredible artists in showcasing our work. The best part? We are collaborating in support of the Fresh Start Women’s Foundation – an organization which exists to educate and assist women in difficult life transitions. We will be collecting pens and journals all night – these will be used by women at the foundation as they move through the program and on a path to a better future.
The portraits are chosen, the frames are hung and the gallery is ready, but the really important question remains….
What the heck am I going to wear?!*
