Life is good

My husband installed some shelves for me in our office this weekend so I can get my photography stuff organized, my little girl is currently napping peacefully, I have a pot of yummy vegetarian chili simmering on the stove, and the temperature here in CO reached 70 degrees today. Life is good. 🙂

I’ve got some things to write about in the near future but I’m waiting until I have some more time and more information before I do it.

In the meantime, I have to say we had a nice weekend around here. I got my shelves put up that I wanted (and didn’t even have to beg for them). Jody, Ava and I went to a park on Sunday for a mock photoshoot so I could get in some more practice with my new lens. My photos weren’t spectacular, but I am happy with some of them, and, as always seems to happen when I go out for a shoot, I learned a lot. 🙂
Here are a few (cuz I always gotta share):

We had friends over for dinner and played a bit of Balderdash last night. It was a lot of fun. I’d never played Balderdash before, though I’ve heard a lot about it. I wish we would’ve had more time to play, since it seems like we were just really getting into it when they had to leave (it was nearly 11 p.m.), so we’ll have to try it again another time.

Tomorrow Ava and I are going to a welcoming party for a friend’s new baby boy. 🙂 I’m excited to meet the little guy. On Sunday I’ll be doing a newborn photoshoot of him and their family and I’m really looking forward to that.

I’m slowly but surely getting my stuff together for this photography business. Jody keeps encouraging me to delve in and really get going on it, but I know my comfort level with my technical skills better than he does and I’m not to that point just yet. I hope to be able to get serious about it this spring and summer, but I’m realizing I’m going to need some outside help with Ava – perhaps a mommy’s helper to spend some time playing with her while I work during the week.

That’s about all for now. Time to go enjoy some of that chili. 🙂
