Pacing myself

This past week was packed with lots of great photo sessions.  I have been editing nonstop ever since.  I am thankful for the awesome opportunities I have been given.  I love that I have a job that does not feel like work to me.  I love that I have a job that fulfills my need to create.  I love that I get to be home with my dog by my feet and Dave in the other room.  Though I love it and feel like I can do it all day, I am learning  I need to pace myself and take a little time to relax in between sleep and sitting at my desk.  When I need a break I need to take a break.  If I need an ice cream, I need to go get an ice cream.  If I need to go to the gym, well, that is another story...

This is one of my favorite pictures of my boys! :)

A blog about Mondays...

Monday, the worst day of the week for most people, has always been my favorite day of the week.  I have never been one to keep a "conventional" schedule.   I am a night owl, who enjoys work on the weekends.  Before pursuing photography full time I worked as a waitress/bartender.  As you can imagine, the weekend shifts are the best shifts.  I was always off on Mondays.  It was my day to do whatever I wanted and it is a day that Dave and I have off together.  Luckily photography allows me to still enjoy my Mondays.  I may have a meeting or a photo session here or there, but for the most part it is still my day to play! :)

I had a beautiful wedding on Saturday and rested all day Sunday, by Monday I was ready to get out of the house! :) Dave and I decided to take one of our mini road trips.  This one was full of random adventures... We had Mexican food, visited three parks, held hands, walked by a raccoon sleeping in a tree, kissed, daydreamed, drove by a llama, laughed, and sat in comfortable silence all while traveling over 200 miles through 4 different counties.  We took in every last inch of our surroundings and enjoyed each other all day long.

These are our iPhone photos of the day.

Trying out a new app on Dave.We started in Eden Park.I thought it was cool that my shoes matched  the architecture.

We stumbled onto a wildlife habitat.It is always nice getting lost in Boone County.

Ahhh, Spring

All of the waiting is over, Spring is finally here!  Since it was so nice out yesterday, Dave and I decided to take a long drive down Rt.8 along the river.   It was nice to turn everything off and just appreciate each other and our surroundings.  The sunroof was open, the breeze was warm. We cruised at our own pace chasing pockets of glorious late afternoon light, my idea of a perfect day.

While we were out enjoying the day Dave snapped a few photos of me for my website.  He really is becoming a great photographer, don't you think?

Sunshine Finally!  Ahhhhh!
