While slaving away at holiday card design earlier this week, a knock came at my door with a wonderful surprise behind it. Amanda M. had just received her acceptance to Brooks Institute, arguably one of the best schools in the country for photography. She stopped by with her mom to share the news just after she opened the envelope. I've known Amanda for about 5 years. I first met her when I was her Young Women's leader at church. It is amazing to watch these girls grow up before your eyes. I'm so proud of her and know she will do amazing things. Go Amanda!!!
