Busy, busy, busy…. This month has been spent:
…enjoying this gorgeous view while in Florida. The Breakers Hotel review coming soon.
…taking our baby girl to the pool.
…looking through a camera lens. I took on several large photography projects for The Dating Divas blog. They are launching several amazing products over the next few months- here’s a peak at my work:
Anniversary Printable Pack
Couples Group Date Night
Printable Summer Activities Pack
Babysitting Co-op Printable Pack
…reading these articles on motherhood:
- Are You Lonely, Mama? …so true! Love her perspective about the seasons of life.
- Why You’re Never Failing as a Mother …really interesting to think about how parenting has changed across generations AND how it is easier and harder at the same time.
…taking stock. By Kara Anne sent out an email with the subject, “Is June the fresh start you need?” This one-liner got me thinking about my OLW for the year, as well as my 30 During 30 Goals. #12 on the list was to make and send 30 cards. I wrote down a quick list of projects that came to mind and realized that not only had I met this goal but exceeded it by quite a bit! 2014 has demanded an outpouring of creative products. My goal for the reminder of the year is to figure out how to lighten my load, focus on what’s important, and let the rest take care of itself. Easier said than done!
…visiting my Grandma after her fall. I hope Olivia inherits her grit and determination!
…writing many blog posts. Curious what goes into a post? Read THIS and THIS for a thoughtful breakdown. When I got into blogging, I had no clue that you needed to be an amazing photographer, eloquent writer, expert WordPress user, marketing genius, and part-time HTML coder to be successful. I am far from where I’d love to be in this industry BUT I’ve made great strides with my photography skills over the past year.
…learning why I hate cilantro! And, I picked up a new phrase: single-nucleotide polymorphism.
