Woo Hoo. So glad it is Friday, and not just any Friday, Film Fest Friday. I volunteer as the treasurer for a phenomenal environmental organization based out of Nevada City, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL). SYRCL’s mission statement:
“SYRCL unites the community to protect and restore the Yuba River. Motivated by our love for this watershed, we advocate powerfully, engage in active stewardship, educate the public, and inspire activism from the Sierra to the sea”
This weekend is the 11th Annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival, which is taking place tonight through Sunday in Nevada City and Grass Valley. I am always soooo inspired after the Film Fest to make changes in my lifestyle, even if small, to help make a difference for our planet and environment. Like using less plastic, remembering my reusable bags when I go grocery shopping, conserving water, eating locally grown food whenever possible, etc. etc. The little changes to our lives do make a difference. I am convinced. So go get inspired and watch some amazing films this weekend!
I thought I would share the portrait I did for the 2013 Wild and Scenic Film Fest Team and the program,…they are truly amazing people!!!
I also took some fun portraits for my friend Erin this week while she was taking pictures for Treats (a super yummy ice cream and treats store in Nev. City)… Erin is giving a lunch talk next Tuesday at Sierra Commons on Blogging. I am excited to go be a part of it! I know I can certainly use more info on blogging. She is a blogging queen!

Happy Friday y’all!!!
