Life is good (even w/out Photoshop)
Wow Labor Day already! I have to say that for me, this was the LONGEST summer ever! Maybe because I was HUGE in April and the weather was really warm then? I am just so ready for fall clothes and a little chill in the air. I am also so ready for a regular back-to-school routine. I have been trying to squeeze in some reading and writing and it has been tough with all the busyness we had around here!
We just got back from an awesome trip to our dear friend Kinsey’s beach house in Connecticut and we also went to visit another great friend Donna and her family in Baltimore. Didn’t I tell you how much I love the East Coast? The boys were so happy visiting old and new friends. So this Labor Day weekend we had one of my BFFs over from Brooklyn with her kiddies and Isabella (she’s back!!) for a wet BBQ (why does that always happen to me?). I continued to be nice to myself and felt really inspired to learn some new things as well. Check it out:
I am embarrassed to tell you that as much as I love photography, I have never played with Photoshop. So I tried it this weekend and after hours of making beautiful images…HUGE FAIL! I also tried to re-design this website on my own and another HUGE FAIL. What else? Oh, I wrote this long blog post because I hoped to end your suffering and negative thinking…blah, blah, blah and we had a power outage!! The whole town! Not even a storm!!! Ahem, I did not save my work. I’m sure it was the Gods of the blog universe sending a message to literally pull the plug on that one. Sigh.
My summer end was a bit of a bust but that is the balance of life. No real crises of course! Just a few let downs. All in all, I learned and I was able to write this piece with no fancy photography, no new design to wow you, and no lecture this time (ha!). I will squeeze in that when it is time to say, “the hell with it”, then the hell with it. Surrender and see all the other awesome stuff that was accomplished.
Hope you had a wonderful Labor Day! Talk to me! SEE how many words are in ALL CAP and how many times I used the word “huge”? I’m excited to be back. I’ve missed you.
