I have updated my site athenaphotography.com and also Cyrus' site.
I want to thank my friend Jen at Jenco Creative for encouraging me to design & created the new look myself, while giving me help and support as needed . It was extremely helpful having her say "not good enough, Athena, try harder" "Do this ...not that." Jen would point me in the direction and I would run with it. Thank you, thank you, Jen
Also a thanks to Dave at saltStudio for his reminder to keep it simple and for his constant ability to make me laugh.
liveBooks of course, I love their sites and the folks over there have been so helpful to me. Thank you Kathy, Jerico, Margie, and the others that helped make my site happen.

my world is way better with you in it • May 2009

Justin and Rick, Rocky Mountain Development Group, bought the Wilma building where I have my vacation rental property. I am enchanted by the Wilma building, love the Victorian theater, and I'm filled with gratitude that I'm involved in the buildings new future. Rick and Justin purchased the 1920 building in 2007, turned the building into sellable residential and office condominiums, restored the the building inside and out, and here they stand in their future office located on the river front level. These boys (men) are smart, healthy and good humans (not to mention dog lovers) and my world is way better with them in it.

Thanks to all the artists involved and the Montana Skatepark Association for making this event happen.
