Welcome back to the second edition of No Mom Talk Monday here on the new [and might I say, improved?] Mommy Matters blog. Thanks to those of you who linked up last week! You guys made my day!
**In case you aren’t familiar with No Mom Talk Monday, the rules are quite simple: You simply write a post on whatever your heart desires just so long as it doesn’t pertain to your children. The purpose behind No Mom Talk is to give us mom’s a break from parenting 24/7 and get to just being individuals.
I have really been itching to get back into photography the past few weeks. I don’t know if it has to do with the beautiful scenery, or the long photography related chat I had with my new neighbor and fellow photographer yesterday…but I’m itching to get my camera back in my hand and dying to utilize the resources around me. I kind of allowed myself to be drug down by my husband being gone for so long and then all of the moving and whatnot has taken priority over everything else. So now that we are semi-settled and our household goods will be here in the next few weeks, I’m hoping to spend some time out shooting. There is a lot of beauty on this island…a lot of opportunities for creativity. And I need to take advantage of that.
I have finally got an office area again! No more blogging, reading, editing, etc. at a table! Our new living room is big enough that the hubby and I were able to put a desk for each of us toward the back of the room. He’s going back to school, I’m going back to school, I blog, he studies…there was no way we couldn’t have separate work spaces. It just wasn’t happening. So, we each have a corner and are planning to get separate book cases [one for his medical stuff and one for all of my blogging-writing-photography-home décor-insertotherhobby stuff]. We love, love, love our new home and I can’t WAIT to show your guys photos.
I took some “before” shots the other day but haven’t had time to upload them, so watch for those to come at any time. Maybe even later today if I can get around to doing it.
How about you? What have you been up to this weekend? Did you do anything for yourself? Hope you’ll join me for “no mom talk” this week. The link is active until NEXT Monday, so if you link up a day or two late, don’t worry!
Happy Monday all!
