Being selfish....

I spent 1/2 a day just doing something for myself recently-something most people do all the time, something they may even take for granted that they even get the opportunity to do it....going to the salon.  I know, crazy right-but I never get my hair done.  I have not had it cut in two years, I had it colored about a year ago.  It had gotten terribly long, so long that I finally took the scissors to it myself, rather then take what precious time I needed to focus on my business-and focus on myself.  Pathetic.  I wasn't raised to be a high maintenance type of girl, I am simple and easy to please for the most part when it comes to caring for myself.  I like simple, easy & quick.

So I did just that, got a simple hair cut & a simple color.  I took off about three inches myself before I went to see my new BFF Aaron who took off an additional 9 or 10.  I feel great, and I look even better-younger I was even told.  Yay me!  Oh and goodbye to the four gray hairs too.

It just made me realize, or it reminded me that it's okay to be selfish every couple of months.  I swear I was so excited I almost went and got a pedicure!!! LOL!  But alas, I remembered it was WINTER and I am wearing BOOTS 1/2 the time anyway.

But getting this done, made me realize how much I have let go in my life.  How I have given up on my passion for just shooting what I want-I am shooting of course, but doing what other people want, making the extra money-but my creative side isn't shining.  I've become more indecisive and not very passionate about my work.  So I need to kick myself in the butt and get refocused and get myself and my business organized and back on track.

It's funny how life can derail you from....well, life!  GO FIGURE!

Keep me in your :)

Quote of the day, if the top is to sappy for you:  "If I cut you off, chances are you handed me the scissors".  I am tired of being handed scissors!!!  Love & be loved!


I feel like I have been MIA for a while now, and I guess to be honest I have been.  Just a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to shoot my last & final wedding for 2014 (on 12/13/14 actually) and I have been a. busy culling and editing those images b. shooting other sessions after the holidays c. the holidays and d. just life in general.

I don't know I do it, well I guess if I thought about the fact that my legs need to be shaved, I could figure out what gets neglected in order for me to complete the above for mentioned.  Gracious.

I had a fantastic holiday & I'd love to write a blog post about it when I have time, but for the time being-let me just post a photo of one of our outings.


Peace love & happiness!
