Doing. Lots of running around like a chicken with my head cut off. It’s officially the “busy time of year” for our family…and some extra opportunities have added even more to that. One of the fun opportunities was being asked to talk on the Etsy Hour at our local radio station. I almost made it through the whole hour without crying, too! (Don’t ask. I get nervous and tears start streaming.) I can attest to the trick of pinching between your thumb and first finger to keep back the tears. It really did work for me. I basically bruised the crap out of myself, but no tears.
Appreciating. People who entrust us with their wedding memories. Bennett and I photographed a gorgeous, sweet, intimate wedding last night for two of our local friends. It’s really neat to be on this side of the camera for such an event. Wedding photography is a lot of work, but fun work. We’ve been lucky to only have wonderful couples so far and it makes it easy on us to do our job!
Designing. Our booth for Oglebayfest, which starts on Friday! This is the biggest show we will be selling our handmade goods in and I’m a little nervous about the amount of work we will be doing in preparation the event this weekend. I feel bad for Louis because his parents are going to suck at parenting all week long. Lots of overtime and late nights will be spent trying to build our last-minute stock.
Humming. A song that I can’t talk about yet. Isn’t that sketchy of me?
Expecting. A really fun couple of weeks. The announcement is happening tomorrow and I’m excited to come out with it. So excited. Like….pee my pants excited. Just wait!
