do what you love..

Admittedly, I was a little petrified when Ryan called me and asked me if he could film me for his new series, Do What You Love (a series about women doing what they love in conjunction with Gap's 1969 Jeans collection). I'm not a big fan of being on video... I tend to get REALLY awkward. But Ryan is a friend and incredibly talented so I decided to brush that aside and go with it.. and trust him. I'm very excited to give you another glimpse inside my world. I think Ryan did a beautiful job of capturing the studio. I feel so blessed that I truly get to do what I love every single day. For those who have the same dream.. I can't stress enough that it really can be a reality if you set aside any fears & dive in with a whole lot of work and determination. I hope the series inspires you to do what you love!
