Hello friends!! I am missing writing regularly in this little corner of the internet. I know I keep saying it, but this fall/Christmas photography season has been so busy. Which is awesome. Because I love what I do. But I will say, I let myself get so overbooked this season that I’ve had to give up three of my favorite hobbies. Since busy season began I haven’t gone to the gym or read a book and I’ve hardly been present on this blog. I miss those things. But I know that as this busy season winds down, I’ll miss the fast pace of the photography world. So I’m trying to be sure I enjoy it while I can before the winter lull sets in.
That’s my current edit list. Only six more to edit! I have a handful of sessions still coming up later this month (as I photograph a session, it gets added to the edit list which is why those aren’t on there yet), but for the most part – busy season is ending. My goals for this week are pretty straight forward: finish all editing early, respond to emails, go to the gym at least once, and attempt to catch up on at least some blog reading. We’ll see what gets accomplished!
So I have had to re-prioritize my hobbies, but that’s just during the “day time working hours.” Our nights and weekends are still packed full of social life, volunteer work, and of course… LOTS of Christmas right now! 🙂
Us outside Opryland Hotel in Nashville this past weekend. Their lights are incredible! And all their decorations are huge! Look at that bow nearly as big as I am that is an “ornament” on an enormous tree!
Us with our friends, Stephen and Julia, at the Opryland ice display. 2 million pounds of hand carved ice kept at a chilly 9 degrees! So pretty! There was also an ice slide that we went down where I felt completely undignified (you lay on your back with your feet in the air which reminded me of a trip to the OBGYN, ha!), but it was SO much fun! 🙂 We had lots of laughter this past weekend. 🙂
I want to blog about ALL things Christmas related, but that would be several posts worth. So instead, let it be recorded here that our holiday season has been and is currently packed full with evenings around the fireplace, Christmas caroling, making cookies for our neighbors, Christmas parties, lots of twinkly lights, Advent readings, a couple of trips, lots of time with our families and friends, and a ridiculous amount of delicious food. I mean, really… what more do I need to say? Tis the season, my friends! 🙂
What Christmassy things have you been up to lately?
What are the first things to go when you get busy with work or life? For me it was the gym & reading. I’ve been attempting to hold on to blogging a little, but it has been pretty pitiful lately, ha!
