As I sat here, tonight…working away as usual…I felt a breeze come through my office window and I realize that I haven’t looked outside almost all day! Sad, I know. (well, except for the 3 minutes I spend outside chasing down my mail lady because she forgot to take the boxes I was mailing!) I suddenly realized that it was a totally incredible, gorgeous day out…and I didn’t even notice.

It made me think of how interesting it is that a wedding photographers life is soo chaotic in the summer…it’s such a contrast to all the laid back, hang out time and loads of fun that everyone else is having! It’s kinda funny, actually! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my job and would NOT trade it for anything in the world….it was just a funny revelation I had to day! I really love the summer, though! It’s such a great season! I love flip flops, comfy clothes and wavy summer hair…and hanging out at the pool with friends…having cookouts with my family by their lake, hamburgers & corn on the cob, 80 degree nights, watermelon, long walks in the evening, etc, etc.

I just love it. It’s funny, the older I get (at a ripe old 26! ha!), the more I just love chillin out. I used to totally be a go-go-go….busy busy person, always doing a million things a minute, always had tons of things planned…and lately, I just love chillin out! I’ll take ANY opportunity I can get to go to the pool (although it pretty much never happens) because I get soooo excited about just doing NOTHING! I know I better not get used to it because when I have kids and still run a full time business on my own, I won’t be chillin out AT ALL! For now, I’m going to LOVE IT as much as I can! πŸ˜‰

Sorry to carry on and on with my personal ramblings…I just hadn’t done a personal post in soo long because I have been soo consumed by business….so I was feeling deprived and needed to just share that with all of you! πŸ˜‰ So, thanks for listening…..
