I'll Take the Amateur

French, from Latin amātor, lover, from amāre, to love.

Anytime I thought of the word amateur I thought of a beginner, novice or someone who just does something as a hobby. But another root word, as I learned from the great Dane Sanders, is love. And for that lesson I am grateful. I love what I do and love everything I'm learning. I'm determined to always keep a passion for what I do, love the process and the people. And darnit--I will. =) So here's to the rest of my life, where I will always take the amateur route.

And just cause a post is always better with a pic and I love her: My little animal.
