Before and After Amelia and Lexie

I used a Nikon P90 and I used Picnik for the edits. Hoping for better quality pictures next week, as I finally got a Canon 50d! Can't wait to try it out :)

Just a suggestion. At any given point in time you decide that life is going really well- Dont, i repeat, DO NOT let on that you believe things are grand. It will be in that very moment that universe will shift, recognize your happiness and throw you a curve ball..i.e. push your condo closing back a week, three weeks, three months? Instead, keep just a half smile on your face and pretend like you’re miserable with the rest of ‘em… just to be safe.

This morning I was sent a very inspirational email and it totally got me thinking about how grateful I am that things in my life are going so well. I will close on my condo before I turn 25. The thought of home buying has always seemed like something so far away- so i'm proud of myself that I'm doing it now- and while i'm still single. I have a job in radio that allows me to meet some of the most interesting people on the planet- AND get to share my days with the best coworkers ever- most of whom have become like family. This new found photography business is booming. If you would have asked me a year ago if I ever thought this would have happened, I wouldn't have had a clue. What a whim it was to try it out- and get such positive feedback. Three months later- I've managed to book 9 shoots and my first wedding at the end of May! I have a great family- who have become more than just parents and a sister, but more like a rock of support that i'm not sure I could get by without. Life is amazing. Sometimes it's nice to just step back and realize that all of a sudden, out of nowhere, and maybe even totally unexpected- you're living a life that is almost, the best possible scenario of you.

As quoted from the forward from the lovely miss Sabrina- "Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear."

Ikea= heaven

So- the lighting in the condo is less than desirable. I decided a trip to Ikea in Concord was a MUST! And boy, was I right! Talk about some good deals- I got all three of these light fixtures for under $100. The track light will be replacing a HUGE ugly light over the bar seperating the kitchen from dining room. The middle chandelier will be taking an outdated ceiling fan's place in my master bedroom and then the last fixture will be going up in the dining room. *disclaimer- the light bulbs will NOT look like that in the last picture!

Happy Easter to you and yours! I have a busy weekend ahead of me- A photoshoot this afternoon with sweet little Amelia, and a very anticipated trip to IKEA tomorrow and an engagement shoot in the evening. We will be celebrating the holiday next weekend with my sister, brother-in-law and nephew in town. Things are progressing well with the condo- only 25 more days until move-in! Keep your fingers crossed for me that the last few steps go through without a hitch :)
