Addiction Is…

Aw, rats. Ok. Ok. I know I said I would stop buying books. But it was a library book sale and obviously libraries need money and who am I not to help?! Here is a picture of the books I hauled home. I also scored some records, but neglected to snap photos. I was super excited for, what I will call, a vintage R.L. Stine book. Also, super excited about The Indian in the Cupboard. I find the more I go shopping at book sales the more 90s books I bring home! I am getting super nostalgic as I get older. As I walked around with the book about the singers of the 70s, the clerk suggested a book about MTV, which I promptly wrote down on my to-read list. Was excited to learn about that title! Until the next time….

I can tell this goal of mine, of writing a few lines for every photo, is going to be very hard or super annoying. But sometimes when we are pushed, we can produce some great results.


Leaves and humans have a lot in common, don’t they? Sure do. There are billions of leaves and billions of people in the world. Each leaf is unique and so are we. Leaves mature and fall off trees and disappear. Humans age and pass away. Every year, new leaves return. Every year, new babies are born. We can learn a lot about ourselves from nature.

What Blog?

Life gets pretty hectic, right? On the main page of this website I have a nice graphic that says READ MY BLOG!! Well as I am scrolling through my blog I see only photos with brief headlines or sentences!! I must write more!! NaNoWriMo is coming up real soon. And, I am super excited that my library is offering a dedicated time slot for writing. We know that nothing creative ever gets done at home!! When I go, I might just do some blogging or at least think of something to write about! Perhaps I will dust off my old notebook with the pretty floral cover, which is full of unfinished stories based on my photography? Ugh, so many creative projects and not enough hours in the day!

I recently attended a brand therapy event at my library hosted by Rachel Dunham.  She was really great. Since I have officially retired from wedding photography, I have really been wondering what to do with my art and all things inspiration. Can I channel it into a new business? I really don’t want to sell my photography since the market is so saturated. Where’s my niche? Is it a book? A journal to inspire others? I kind of like that idea! But where to even begin?!?!

If anything, ’tis the season to figure it out as the daylight is shorter and the temperatures are colder.  I am already thinking about 2020, resolutions and being more productive. 2019 was not my year but I have high hopes for the next one!

Until then….
