So, it's been August since my last post. If you don't know me in real life, you may not know what I've been up to. Luckily, I'm about to tell you!
I decided photography was something I honestly love, so I decided to pour my heart and soul into it. I started learning as much as I possibly could and practicing as much as I could, all while trying to train for the St. Jude half marathon and work 40 hours a week. Needless to say, I was busy.
I started taking pictures for friends and family in order to practice, then a few other people asked me to take their pictures as well, and it's just kind of grown from there.
Several people were interested in photographs for their Christmas cards, and here are a few of them...
Lots of other great things have happened and are happening, and I can't wait to share it all with you! I decided to get started early on my resolutions for the new year, and blogging is one of them. I'm not doing so hot with trying to eliminate soda, so I figure it's a lot easier to blog.
If you are interested in checking out my photography pages, my Facebook page is here and my website (which is a work in progress) can be found here. Give me some love if you have the time!
I've decided I'm boycotting overtime shifts. I picked up waaay too many (as in, one per week) for the past 3 months, and I'm over it.
Sure, I get paid more money, and that is super fun. But in exchange for the money, I have to give up my time. And that means I have less time to spend doing the things that I love.
For example, spending time with this sweet girl.
I have spent time with her every day for the past 6 days and I still can't get enough.
Spending time with her also means spending more time with my sister. We've been planning Anniston's birthday party and our complete Fall wardrobe. It's been great.
I also got to have a girl's night with my best friends in the whole wide world, who live far far away and I haven't seen in a few months. It was way way too long, I missed having friends.
Also, I get to run. While enjoying it!
I was still running while I was so busy, but running is so much more fun when I'm not super stressed.
The only downside of less overtime is less shopping. Which I'm working on dealing with. I'm trying to develop a "Fall Shopping Plan" and attempting to "only purchase what I really need". As my sister and fellow shopaholic stated, spending time together is not good for our wallets.
But getting to see this sweet face more often is so, so worth it!
