Long Overdue

August 16, 2012

This blog post is insanely overdue. This past year has been a rough one and once I stopped with the blog, I never really knew how to pick it up again. Well, since there probably isn’t a “right” way, here we are. At 2:30am. On a Wednesday night/Thursday morning. After an overnight flight from California.

Last year my fiance and I broke up. My best friend, who was alive by a miracle, got married and then passed away unexpectedly a few months later. My aunt became ill and passed away only a few weeks after that. My cousin got in a giant mess of legal trouble. My best friend had her baby 2 months prematurely and was living at the NICU. Things just fell apart at the seams and keeping up with the site was not in the cards.

Luckily the dust has settled and it hasn’t all been negative. I shed 40 lbs and plan to keep going (I always thought the “exercise relieves stress” thing was a joke but working out really saved my sanity on many occasions). I’ve met amazing new people and reconnected with old friends. I’ve been able to take trips this summer which hadn’t been possible previously. My favorite band reunited for a week of shows and I was able to shoot them. I saved more kitties. There’s been plenty of fabulous shoots. And I’m sure there’s plenty more to come.

Yup, there’s been huge ups and downs and lots of loss, but somehow I’ve survived and I’m back and ready to rock this place once again. There are lots of sessions to be shared so stay tuned!
