What’s Happening

My life has been busy. Like so busy that I kind of forgot I have a blog. Here is the super fast recap.

  • The Etsy shop has been up and running for about 6 weeks. I didn’t realize how much work it was going to be, BUT, I’m loving finally having a way to sell my personal work. If you love flowers, beaches, landscapes and pretty things, then check it out. I’ve had 2 sales in the first 6 weeks (woohoo!) and my goal is at least 10 by the end of this year. Why so low? Because I know Etsy shops take time to get off the ground. If I make 10 sales, I’ll be psyched. If I go over that, I’ll be over the moon.
  • Photo session season has picked up. Which means I’m getting to play with lots of cute babies and families, celebrating lots of love, and just editing away. I moved to a new gallery system, which has been getting some rave reviews, and I’m just overall super busy. I’ve already had several shoots, including my spring mini sessions two weekends ago, with several more on the horizon!
  • My allergies are in full swing (like so many people) and I feel like crap 99% of the time with them. Needless to say, I was lazy and didn’t exercise for a solid two weeks. And I also chose to eat whatever I felt like. I’m back in the exercise groove, and re-starting Couch to 5K for my thousandth time today. I’ll finish it the week I leave for Spain. So it’s a good time frame and a good goal!
  • Stay tuned for a couple of reviews coming on the blog courtesy of SweatPink. I love being part of this community and can’t wait to bring them to the blog!

And that’s about all for now.

Happy Tuesday!

My Thoughts (aka Ranting) of today

If I seem to be MIA for the next few days, it’s because I’m prepping for my best friend’s wedding this week.

Yep. My first friend and my longest-known friend (27 years!) is getting married this weekend. Needless to say, there is a lot of prep stuff to do here before I travel to Maryland to see her marry the man of her dreams! So if I disappear… you’ll know why!

Okay. On to my thoughts… currently.

First, how long does a navicular stress fracture take to heal? Does anyone know? Because I’ve been in the boot for 3 weeks and I’m already itching to get out of it. I wasn’t even a runner before I got injured and now, all I want to do is run. Seriously. As much as it sucked that I injured myself exercising, all I want to do now is exercise. Like I can promise the second I get the go ahead from my doctor, I’ll be hitting a running shoe store, getting fitted for new shoes and hitting the pavement. Or the treadmill… depending on what the weather is like when the boot comes off.

I feel like I’m crawling out of my skin to do some serious cardio. It’s driving me INSANE. Literally… I just want to run around. I also want to wear two shoes again. I miss wearing two shoes. I also currently can’t find any of my left shoes, which is strange and totally unexplainable. I mean, I put my shoes on and take them on off in the same place. So not sure how that’s happening.

And the whole boot/one shoe look is totally not stylish.

This boot is seriously cramping my style.

This boot is seriously cramping my style.

I know … positive thinking. But I just needed to rant. I go back to the doctor tomorrow and the first thing I’m asking, well probably the second thing, is what can I be doing for exercise. The first will be ‘So are we any closer to getting this thing off?’

Hopefully, I’ll have an update, but if I disappear until next week, it’s because I’m traveling!

Enjoy!
