Everyone has been sharing their midsummer adventures, well summer is just getting started around here. We will soon start experiencing 100 degree weather on a regular basis, it will last through school starting and start to cool down in time for Christmas. Classic 6 month summer in Texas. Went swimming for the first time this year in my last post, and then today we went and bought some small fireworks and smoke bombs for the first time for Rory to see.
So we're taking advantage of the nice cool day and drawing with chalk on the front porch.
I've been dying to try using prisms and crystals in photography, so I finally got around to ordering a couple. And because my neoprene camera wrap has been missing for about 3 weeks now, I found this one with a matching camera strap that suits me. I also purchased some extra batteries, and a new memory card, moving on up from only having one of each for the past year.
My first Quinceañera client!
Spring is on the way, I await the arrival of wildflowers. We've already had a few rainy days, and supposedly the bluebonnets will arrive early this year. It's International Women's Day, and I slept in, then my old friend Meg that I haven't seen in ages came over with her boyfriend to visit for a while. After that we took my mom out to dinner at her favorite restaurant. Rory has become quite unruly when eating out recently, but for the most party she's pretty well behaved.
I photographed a small wedding yesterday, and the bride ran about 50 minutes late. That meant no pre-wedding photos, we were literally racing the sunset, but managed to squeeze in the short ceremony and the big family photo before calling it. And now my drive is full again so I have to transfer some things before I can import those...
Before March is over I want to have finished my community service, Aurora's Easter photos & paint the carousel horse for spring sessions. I also plan to pick up as many shifts as possible to replace the money I spent on A Perfect Circle tickets! I'm incredibly excited, I haven't spent this much money on myself in a long time, and usually that means getting a tattoo (because at least that last forever) but seeing them is really on my bucket list. Especially since the rest of my favorite bands have either broken up or past on. I'll be seeing them in April, right between Taylor's birthday and mine so it's kind of perfect.
