Hello loves, its Abi here from "Cupcake Photography" filling in for the darlin' Candice! I'm super excited to be able to guest post here on "Teatime Thoughts".
 I'll be talking about what inspires little ol' me.

I racked my brain on what truly inspires me and I thought of 3 main things. Here we go:

1. Volunteering
My biggest inspiration is my volunteer work I do with my church. I have met so many amazing people who are just so thirsty for answers. To think of all the horrible things happening in this world really hurts my heart. If I can give someone the hope of prayer and guidance, the time I spend on volunteering is so worth it! I try so hard to make sure that I put aside time every week. Guiding those in my community to find answers to their problems and every day difficulties is the best feeling in the world. There is truly no other gift greater then volunteering for others.

2.  My hubbers
When I got married almost 2 years ago, I was a little nervous. We had many friends who were recently married, and they had these horror stories about their first year. We heard that our first year would be the most difficult, and that we wouldn't be able to stand each other. Needless to say, our first year of marriage was wonderful. We communicated with each other, encouraged each other, and we were there for one another. I now have friends who are dating and ready to take the next step to marriage. They ask me, "Is the 1st year of marriage really that scary?" The answer is, No. It doesn't have to be scary. Marriage does not have to be that difficult. My hubbers is an inspiration. He inspires me to try harder, and to get up when I have fallen. My husband Ivan has truly brought the best out of me, although he will argue other wise. He says that I have done that for myself. We are going through this simple life of ours together: 
happy, sweet, and totally in love.

Instead of spaghetti, we use a tortilla chip. ha!}

3. Photography
My biggest inspiration as a photographer are my lovely clients. I really enjoy what I do. I love being able to capture a moment just held in time with the press of a button.
Being able to make someone smile with the photos I take, is such an amazing feeling!I have worked so hard on my business. I probably think about it more then anything else. I have so many ideas that run through my mind, sometimes I can hardly sleep. Not only do my clients inspire me, but I am apart of this amazing blogging community- I can't get enough! Every time I see my blogger friends & their beautiful photos, this just inspires me to create magical pieces of Art.
