our life lately // my P365 & other random bits

hey look, it's my semi-monthly post!  the last few weeks have been full of sun, work & more sun.  it needs to never go away, ever.  we've gotten outside every chance we can & we're all working on some legit tan lines.  so far, so good.

i shot my first wedding of the season a couple weeks ago (check it out here!) & am pretty excited that it's all business pretty much every weekend from here on out til the fall.  i mean, it's good & bad.  when i'm busy with work there's this whole big part of me that gets filled up.  i still get butterflies before every shoot but when i walk away with a couple memory cards full of awesome images i practically float my way back to the car & then it's like a junkie needing their fix until i get on the computer to start editing.  weird?  maybe.  but photography is a huge outlet for me & creating awesome images is my fix.

my half marathon training is stalled.  let's be honest, i lost motivation.  thirteen miles is no joke, you guys.  the training requires you to run a lot & it just wasn't happening.  i'm running a five mile race this weekend & am pretty excited to test myself on this shorter distance rather than freaking out about my body lasting for thirteen.  but seriously, where has my motivation gone?  clean eating, cutting junk out of my diet & getting in shape have all been low on my priority list for months now & i gotta figure out why.  how do you get back on the wagon when being off is so comfortable?  aside from all that feeling a bit uncomfortable in your own skin thing, it's pretty easy to just eat junk & be lazy.  in fact, it's nice every now & then.  but ugh, it's gotta stop.  so here goes nothin.  today was clean eating day one & it was less than perfect but practice makes perfect, right?  that's what tomorrow's for.

and with that i'm off to bed!  i'm meeting my bestie/running partner/life partner for four miles tomorrow morning at 5:30.  aaaand that's gonna come early.  here's a little photo dump from the last few weeks of our goings-ons.  you can follow along in real time (aka: i update much more frequently) on both flickr & instagram.

enjoy!

  3. gosh, i just love your pictures. i lost my photo taking mojo and have totally regressed. i totally forgot how to shoot manual {correctly}. *sigh* chasing two boys is no joke and i just don't have the energy. i need to start a 365 so i can hopefully get back to taking semi-decent pics!

    1. I completely know how that goes. I am pretty easy on myself and let myself miss a day here & there. I might end up not shooting a day a week or so! Somedays I use two pictures though so it all evens out in the end, right? and yes, it's so hard to keep up that creative mojo while you're trying to keep two little humans alive while you're out & about too. I TOTALLY GET IT :-/

  4. Good luck on your race tomorrow! I'd be over the moon if I could even run 5 miles!
