the sun is shining... it's actually deceiving, because it looks so beautiful out, but it's literally freezing! i'm all cozy and warm, because of my smart husband. he went out and bought the edenpure infrared space heater, and for our situation, it's working wonderfully! i'm toasty in the coldest room in our house. we've tried about 4 different space heaters, and this one is definitely the best. we haven't turned on our furnace yet, and it's keeping the temp at at least 70 degrees. nice.
crazy busy birthday month! today is my cousin erika joanna's birthday. happy birthday er! i hope you have the bestest day ever....wish i was there to celebrate with you!
right now, my days are filled with shoots and editing....BUT, i'm making a conscious effort to spend quality time with family and friends. by quality time, i'm talking about not looking at my watch and arriving late and leaving early. trying to be relaxed when i'm with my peeps....like i have all the time in the world. and it's working! i'm still getting my work done and it's all good. i think the thing that's changed, is that i'm not spending my time on the computer looking around at a million sites a day. that's what had to give. i still check my friend's blogs...but rather than twice a day, i might check a handful in the morning, and some i'll just check once a week. it's really freed up time. i spend time on the computer editing, but not so much surfing. so today, i'm going to lunch with friends and i'm going to savor the time...and not feel rushed. i have 2 shoots this afternoon, so i'm going to bust it this morning to get as much work done as i can before lunch! what a deal! a day in the life of the all-American woman, right? we all juggle, that's for sure. i'm just hoping i'm juggling the right things!
tom and i met s, b, e & h last week, and not only did a fun shoot, but got to have dinner together. what a sweet, sweet family. oh and the kiddos adore my husband. i mean ADORE! and he eats it up.
because becca is my dear friend, i feel comfortable experimenting with crazy light. the sun was setting behind them, so i shot away. i love the effect!
i love the way that e is looking at s.
and the car is amazing. it was lovingly re-done (not sure that's the correct gearhead term) by b's brother...and family. it was her beloved deceased bro's car. he is one of the reasons b is SO driven to work for jdrf. i admire this family more than i can say.
the car was quite the showstopper. we had lots of thumbs up and people actually stopping and just standing around staring! tom included.
thanks for the comments and emails about upcoming classes. i'll keep you all posted!
have a great day and God bless!
