Wedding season = less blogging, or so it seems.
Remember when I said, "maybe I could do this photography thing for a living?"
Remember when I said, "wouldn't it be SWELL if I got to the point where I was REALLY busy with weddings? So busy that I would have little time for anything else? Like blogging?"
You don't remember that?
Well, I am there. (I'll wait until the cheering stops. That is, when I stop clapping for myself.)
The good news is that I am entrenched in wedding season, meaning every weekend brings at least two weddings, and it doesn't let up until October. SO AWESOME. Really couldn't have asked for a better year.
The bad news is that every time I think, "I need to update the blog!" I realize that if i have 15 idle minutes, I should probably be editing photos!
Thank heavens for my mom, who has been here for the entire month and has taken the children for days at a time, to Camp Marlin Road where they have morning swim, long nature walks, art time with Auntie Becky, afternoon swim, dance party clean-up, slushies and cupcakes. Every day. (go ahead, world, be jealous. I am actually jealous of myself, it is that good.)
I would ask her, "do they want to come home? Do they miss me?"
Her response, "um, no."
Last weekend I was on the cape for a crazy fun wedding (peek coming soon) and spent the night with my favorite Queeneys. Rebecca and Mike were there too, so that she could finish the mural in the boys room that Nan had comissioned…
A little background–Nan loves a particular Shel Silverstein poem, and wanted to have a mural painted in the room that Liam will soon share with little brother Desmond will share. Nan comissioned Rebecca to do the painting, and after lots of back and forth on what illustration she thought would work, they decided on an image from "The Giving Tree" to accompany the poem. Rebecca described the mural to me, but I was not prepared for what it actually looked like in person. When I had the first look at it, I GOT GOOSEBUMPS. It is That amazing. I got to help with a little painting at the end, (Rebecca pointed out that she and I like to have our hands in each other's creative endeavors) and I still am amazed when I look at the photos….
The Artist and a VERY happy customer
the view from the hallway
a little love for Desmond…this kid is going to become one of my favorite photography subjects, I just KNOW it.
Want a mural for yourself? drop an email to Rebecca and let her know you saw it here…
(and I TOLD you you were going to shout, DIDN'T I??)
