Aaaand I’m back.
Hi everyone! Remember me? Gosh, I hope you still do.
I’ve been on a bit of a mental vacation lately. For the past month. Or so. But now I’m back and I’m ready to start sharing (almost) everything about my life with the internet full of strangers! Yay!
So what have I been up to on my mental vacation? Lots. I can’t even remember half of it, so you’ll just have to bear with me.
My trip to New York with my mom was a blast! We play Tourist very well, she and I. We stayed at the Marriott East Side in Manhattan and had quick access to everything touristy on the island. We walked up and down 5th Ave every day, window shopping, people watching, museum going, food eating, and many other -ing words. I’m still working on the pictures (yes, still…a month later). If you’d like, you can check my New York 2010 Flickr set. I post pictures little by little. So far I have two of four days done.
Shortly after I got back from New York, Danny and I took off for a quick trip to Palm Springs with his family. His mom and dad’s birthdays are only three days apart, so this year we celebrated by spending some time in the sun, lounging by the pool and eating good food. A vacation from my vacation was exactly what I needed.
After that, I was in Santa Barbara for three lovely days and two insane nights with 9 other girls whooping it up (literally!) for Laura’s batchelorette weekend. What a blast, and what an amazingly fun group of girls! We terrorized Hotel Oceana and the beach, but I think the hotel employees loved us. We hung out at the hotel, went wine tasting, gossiped, laughed, ate our weight in phallic cookies and had some good quality girl time. I took next to no photos. Bad aspiring photographer! Bad!
In between vacations, I’ve also booked three photography gigs! A wedding in October 2011 and two Making Strides events at the end of this month! I’ll be flying up to San Francisco and San Jose two weekends in a row to photograph the teams that participate in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events. HUGE thanks to my friend Justin for thinking of me!
September has been good to me!
Here are a few random shots I’ve taken over the past month.
