In sixth grade we had to write a career report on what we wanted to be when we grew up.
I was absolutely positive that I would attend Auburn and become a veterinarian.
I got an A+ on the report. Which may or may not have had something to do with the calligraphy and decoupage on the cover. But my vet plans easily evaporated as I realized the vast amounts of science and math that would be required.
Funny how that wasn't really an option as I rode my bike to the local library to research careers on the microfiche machine. No Google in my day, friends.
Drew on the other hand was a case study in serenity.
She calmly, quietly corralled my band of wild ones exactly where they need to be without them even knowing it. Then she let them be who they are. Who we are. Nothing stresses her. Nothing worries her. She switches cameras, lenses, locations, and light with ease. She knows the exact perfect moment to bring out the gummi bears.
Somehow through all of her peace and grace, she keeps snapping away and gives us these forever moments. Bathed in sunshine, love and pretty light.
Like I said. This right here? My dream job. Pretty fun that I get to do it for those I love the most.
Now what should we do next year?
