Julie Lyles Carr: Happy

Wednesday, November 30, 2011


I've been fretting and wringing my hands and second-guessing myself for weeks.

But today I decided it had to be done.

It has been my incredible honor to serve as Executive Director of Legacy of Hope Austin, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving children with special needs and their families. While there are many ways to compose an annual report, I wanted our contributors to see what we've been up to. And the best way to do that is through photography.

So I've been shooting pictures and gathering others' photos and trying to compile it all in some sort of comprehensive way. But for weeks I just kept getting weepy every time I would try to edit.

Seriously. Seriously weepy.

I'm just so overwhelmed by the events of the year, the incredible people we've been able to serve.

Seriously weepy.

I thought Mike might be able to keep me on page, help me keep my nose to the editing grindstone. I pulled him over to look at the progress of the annual report as I edited photographs and copy.

He was no help. At all. Because he got weepier than me.

But finally, finally I finished. And I can't wait to get these photo books in hand. And pass them on to the generous folks who have helped make all this happen.

So here's a peek at what I've been up to, the reason for some sleepless night and some crying jags and some mounds of undone laundry.

Well. To be honest. I'm not sure I can completely blame my laundry procrastination on my non-profit work.
