After sadly responding back to Sarah’s email with lots and lots of sad faces last winter informing her that I was already booked for her wedding date, I sent her off a list of names and wished her all the luck in the world. You don’t have any idea how sad this truly is to not be able to be in two places at once #IwantITall … but you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
Sarah didn’t give up on me though. In the midst of going full time at the beginning of the summer, Sarah was there wishing me luck, promoting, and sharing the love. How could she just be this sweet. Chris and her got back it contact with me late summer and that was that. They wanted, no … insisted that they fly me down to DC for an e-session with them. Flattered, of course, I quickly responded YAAAAAA.
Even though this has definately been the CRAZIEST & busiest year of my life, I have loved every minute and feel so fortunate that my dream is finally coming together. When you run a business its all on you. You do things the way you want to, YOU make the rules, YOU answer all the questions, YOU are the creator and there is no ‘handbook’ for starting up. With the world of technology changing there are so many apps, gizmos, gadgets, helpful websites, websites that seem helpful that just add more time to your workflow, math, bookkeeping and constant changes coming at you. I finally am feeling like I have a handle (well I’ll say better handle, not to jinx myself) on whats at hand.
While meeting my deadlines of all my clients (because after all that’s what is most important to me) i have fallen very far behind in Blogging my most current work… which is now overwhelming to think about. I also realized that when a good friend told me that I have much more current work that should be up, front and center, on my gallery page…. that I actually haven’t updated my “portfolio” in a year…
Everyones gotta start somewhere, and it seems to me that since I always seem to take the bumpy, and much less travel road, I just have to fill my gas tank back up and hit the gas!
Heres some of my Favorites from earlier this week :)
