{Pace} It Forward

“You never know when one kind act, or one word of encouragement, can change a life forever.” Zig Ziglar

An act of kindness and many words of encouragement from one person has changed my life. When I started on this journey, I had reached out to Juli who was more of an acquaintance at the time. We had known each other but hadn’t quite “connected”…yet.  I had told her of my plans to go down this path and a shoot I had coming up. She offered to meet me to show me some things and her one act of kindness started something so big for me I cannot thank her enough. I now have a mentor and friend that I couldn’t be more thankful for. What one quick meet up has turned into, has honestly changed my life in so many ways.

I didn’t know Juli’s father but I do feel that this kindness that she has, comes from him. Her father was someone special to my husband when he was a kid, he held a very special place in my husband’s heart from a summer at their house. And the stories I hear from my husband, ring with kindness.

It’s truly kismet what has happened with us. We went from a few helpful hints, to working together, being neighbors, and great friends. I truly feel blessed to call Juli my friend and mentor.

And to tie it all up in a nice pretty bow,  she gave me the honor of doing a shoot for her and her amazing little family.

All I can do, is plan to {Pace} It Forward.
