You know how in college when it had been a couple of semesters or even just a summer since you’ve written a paper and then you get that first dreaded assignment to write pages and pages after months off? That’s a little bit how I feel right now…a wee bit nervous. I’ve been on a bit of an unplanned blogging hiatus and I hope that those of you who stop by often will forgive me! 2012 arrived before I knew it and I was ready to rock this year like nobody’s business. Unfortunately, 2012 had other plans for me and I spent a ridiculous amount of time being sick and sometimes when the going gets tough you just have to give yourself a little break and that’s what I allowed myself to do with blogging. I’ve been working the whole time and all is well now so I’m just going to pick up where I left off and make up for some lost time. I have been working on some absolutely wonderful things that I can’t wait to show off! You also may notice that there have been some changes around here. I fairly recently redesigned my whole blog and I’ve really fine-tuned a lot of it lately. There’s a new, neat little STUFF I LOVE button on the top right page of this site where you can browse through some of my personal favorite things and get to know a little more about me. More fun stuff love will be added as we go because we like fun! The ABOUT MM section is fully redone and there are some fun facts in there about yours truly, as well as a brand new INFO & PRICING section. So, if you haven’t looked around for awhile, you may find something new!
Ok! Phew! That feels better. Back to the heart of why I blog…to show off the amazing people I have the pleasure of working with! I recently got to spend some time with Bonnie & Marcus down in Laguna Beach for a fun little shoot. I met Bonnie in Kindergarten and haven’t seen her since the second grade…until this day. My job is pretty cool like that. She looks exactly the same. I don’t know how that’s possible, but it’s true! I’d recognize her in a heartbeat. Of course, I’m a bit of a freak of nature who remembers pretty much everyone I meet, along with their name and anything else they may have told me. I might run into said person a year later when they’ve forgotten all about my entire existence and still I know their name and half of their life story. Sometimes it freaks people out. Sometimes I’m told it’s a gift. I’m sure it falls somewhere in between.
It’s such a cool thing to get to meet up with people from another time in my life. I knew Bonnie as an adorable child and now she is the mother of a little boy right about the same age we were when we met. It was really fun to see the person she’s become and chasing Marcus around was bunches of fun. He gave my my workout for the day! Aren’t they just so cute?
I stuck around after Bonnie & Marcus left and admired the sunset with a friend from Arizona. It was one of those amazing days where it was just unreal and it made me glad I stayed still long enough to enjoy the beauty all around.
