It feels like it has been forever and a day since my last real post here. I apologize, but to be honest there just hasn’t been all that much to blog about. Little Man and I are doing our same ole routine. We have such a good time together. I’m working on teaching him his ABC’s and his colors. We have lunch “dates” every week. We like to go to Barnes and Noble. He plays with the big Thomas the Train set in the children’s section, I grabbed something from Starbucks and a book and we just sit for a while. I love to take advantage of free entertainment. If only they would put a table back there, then I could drag the computer along and I would be set.
Hubby starts class again on Monday. Time to start this A-School thing over again.
He’s extremely excited. He’s only got one roommate this time. A foreign exchange student from Lebanon. They get along pretty well and I think hubby may have found made a lifelong friend. Hubby has always had an interest in foreign culture, so I think they’ll have a lot to teach one another over the next few months.
Time seems to be ticking by at a pretty steady pace for us. It’s already August 6. Where on EARTH is time going? Not that I mind, by any means. We’ll be getting those glorious orders in the next month or two and I can start house-hunting. I am ecstatic. I’ve already got a vision in my head of what kind of place I want and how I want it decorated. I’ve got the furniture I want picked out and I know what colors I want to do. I can’t wait to be back in my own house with my own stuff. Decorated the way that I want. Surrounded by our stuff. With our little family.
The Photography Business has been in a lull for the past month or so. This unbelievable heat wave we’ve been dealing with has driven away clients. And to be honest, I haven’t been that frustrated because it has been so hot. The heat index the past few days has been in the lower 120’s. It’s so hot you can’t even breathe. Even in the afternoon. Little Man is so pitiful. He loves to play outside, but when we go out, he won’t stay there but a few minutes. He’s so hot natured like his daddy and he can’t tolerate it. We went out the other day to play and he was just drenched in sweat. Poor guy. I’ll be glad when it cools off enough that I can start taking him back to the park.
I booked my first wedding!! It’s set for March 2011. And it includes Traveling. The Groom worked with Hubby in St. Pete, and we got to know him pretty well. I only met his fiance one time, on the day that we left Florida, but she was so sweet. We started chatting on Facebook, and she decided she loved my work and now I’m shooting their wedding. I’m so excited. It’s in Mobile and I’ll get to travel from wherever we move back down here for a few days.
I’m thinking of opening an Etsy shop. I’m just not 100% set on the idea yet. I would love to sell some of my art work, but there are hundreds of photographers on Etsy selling their photographs, and I’m just not sure it would be worth it. I mean, you have to pay to list, so what if I don’t sell any? I may wait a little bit longer until I get some more still life and whatnot built up. We shall see. What do you guys think? Would any of you be interested in purchasing some of my work? I don’t list much of it on here, but you can view some it on my photography blog or on my Flickr. I could do a few giveaways I guess…hmm. Food for thought.
Anywho. I guess that is all for tonight. I swear I’m going to get started writing again. I promise. I have a little notebook here by my desk that is overflowing with ideas of things to write about. I just haven’t done it yet. ::Fail:: I’ve been enjoying down time and I’ve been giving so much of my creativity vibe to my photography. But I miss writing. A lot. I forgot how much I love it. Then I sit here at the computer and the words start flowing and remember that photography is my other passion. I can’t decide [nor will I] if I adore photography more than writing. Maybe they are equal.
