Middle of the Month

And there is lots to report. Ellie and her cute team have danced in two more dance competitions. She and her team are so beautiful. I am amazed at how much they are growing each time they dance, truly they inspire me. Yesterday was their best one yet, even with the dancing gummy bears...long story.

I had another photo shoot. I took some of the best pictures. I learned a valuable painful lesson. I am never going to find myself in that stupid place again. All of that has really got me thinking about this photography biz. I want it so bad! My friend Jeri said it's time to just jump in and do it, because really, I am only going to get better each time and really, why not? gulp. I am learning that I don't like the work part much about photography...the creative process, yes, the work after, not so much. I guess that is what is going to make the decision for me, can I handle the work part?

I have been spending more time outside lately. It has been good for my soul. I have been walking around barefoot outside taking pictures of all the flowers in bloom and working on my sun flare. I love this time of year!

I am wearing smaller jeans. My gap cute jeans. This makes me happy. Hoping to keep moving forward with that, my body is finally changing, and that is what matters.

I am looking forward to our trip here. It is seven weeks away. I am also looking forward to the beach. I hope we get there this week, even if it is only to look for shells and put our feet in the water. I love the beach. Here is a photo of me and Ellie on the Jungle Cruise in Disneyland two years ago, and one of my little tiny cinderella girl. My how time flies!

Spring is shaping up nicely. We are looking forward to a fun week for Spring Break. I have some fun things planned. I will let you know how it goes!

I agree with me. Jump in!

I forgot to tell you that the sun flare you get is different with every single lens! How fun is that? My best flare lenses are my long zoom, and I like what I get from my 50 and 85mm too.
