I've been in the keys for almost four hours. We have an unexpected wedding guest called hurricane sandy, making the power go out every 20 mins, I'm in my hotel room with a drink and seriously so happy! How is that possible?! I've probably seen 7 of 70 people I've been dying to see. Hoping everyone gets here soon and safe. Such nasty weather

I'll update later

Love ya ;) j

This has been a weird night...

I had a really REALLY rough day :( and seriously needed a glass of wine! I printed out some prints from the wedding to give the couple at work, they came out gorgeous! Brittany & Jesse got back from Jamaica so I decided to see if they wanted to meet up. His mom lives in the same neighorhood as my mom, so after work I went over there to give them the pictures. They invited me in for a drink :). I decided "WHY NOT" It was so lovely. His dad kept filling up my wine glass, and I am such a freaking light weight...how embarassing! I got a chance to talk to her though, which was so lovely :) I'm def going to call them up when I'm in Washington DC

I just ordered some pizza, I'm hungry with a migrane! and I'm going to start editing pictures :)

Tomorrow's Friday & Pay Day!

I had a "this sucks being an adult" moment the other day...I found out I was getting dropped from my moms insurance, and now I have to pay 50.00 a month out of my paycheck for medical and I don't get dental so I need to look around for some prices. Oh well, thanks mom for taking care of it for this long. I have until January 1st, and then I'm dropped..so yep.

One more day of work and it couldn't go faster. It's been very slow! My boss isn't here, I'm doing his job plus mine and still find myself bored. I didn't get much sleep last night. Clear bear decided to wake me up at two then four...then six. I hope it's not her way of saying hey I'm sick.

The fourth of July was great. Woke up and went for a vanilla chai, came back and spent an hour again at the pool. It's all I can take lately. Another child ruined my experience...so I left. We went to Elliot's parents for a BBQ, then downtown to see fireworks. We got there super late, and considering there was 40,000 people I was surprised there was any walking room, we watched from main street not the park. We met up with Elliot's friends later at the blue owl. Nice break up in the week.

Gotta. Go to work love ya guys lots

Woohoo im sick & Abby is sick. Calling in sick and taking her to the vet. I'm kinda mad I called animal services and they told me she had a hair ball more then likely. She purrs constantly but this morning her purring sounds like gurgling so im sure this is going to be expensive. I have no forms yet for her, I haven't adopted her yet. :/ ugh I hope they don't charge me the new kitten fee on top of medicine. She's too young yet to be adopted.

Enjoying my last bit of the weekend, inside but still enjoying it. We ventured out to the store to get some groceries, big mistake! There was so many food tasting booths, so we spent way too much!

Saturday literally exhausted me. Caitlin got me to sign up for this "Pure Barre" workout class. Never trying it, and knowing how out of shape I am made me nervous. The class itself was awesome workout of pilates and yoga, lots of pushing yourself to the limit. I couldn't do a lot of the exercises but I tried my hardest and pushed myself. I can certainly feel it today. I am SO sore, all over. Heating packs are my best friend today, that & Vanilla tea. I'm going to continue signing up for the classes and see what results it gets me. I went to a family friends house afterward. I had taken pictures of her 13 year old who has been trying to get into modeling, so I was showing her the pictures. They were extremely pleased with them and the comp card examples. Of course I'm not charging them, as the mom has helped my grandpa out so much in the past year, just being there for him when he needs help that this is the least I can do to show my gratitude to her. It would be so SO worth it when I found out an agency signs her. That's all I need! Nothing more.

My mom and I went out to lunch & then wala! I got my teeth laser whitened. They look ten times better then they did before. I am super happy with the results. I have to really focus on staying away from coke products, unless it's a special event. Baby shower shopping also, I didnt find much. I think I need to go out again shopping. Came home and laid down the rest of the day as the storm rolled in. I had to wait 24 hours before eating or drinking anything dark or it would stain my teeth. No thank you. So I'm a little hungry right now...

Oh yeah! I am so pysched. I just got another wedding. December 7th, South Florida Museum in Bradenton. It's a gorgeous venue, that I've never shot at before. 150 people in attendance. Bring it on! I'm going next week to check it out.

Later dolls xo

Just signed up for purre barre class tomorrow 930am. I am officially scared. I am in horrible horrible shape so I can only imagine how awfully painful it's going to be.and what an embarrassment as well. We will see. After that I have to make my way to a friends house to show her little or should I say very grown up 12 year old the pics I took of her to make her modeling debut. I think I need another shoot in a different place as well to add but we will see. Then lunch at urban flats & baby shower shopping. Also have to put some bags of old clothes together to donate to goodwill, oh yeah and my whitening teeth apt! I so can't wait.

Tonight we played it low key. It's raining. After driving around downtown we decided to for go eating out grabbed some Chinese and went home. Finished the hangover two and watching life as we know it maybe dear John after. The kitties are all about mom tonight. Don't know the deal but all over me!

Sooooo bummed out right now. It is pouring and it will be all weekend until they leave. We'll have a tropical storm by the weekend and possibly a hurricane on the way. One thing about FL I hate, it rains every day at 3pm you can literally count on it...and the threat of hurricanes. Luckily I've never been in one, that I can remember. So I'm hoping for a break in the rain, sometime this weekend so I can squeeze them in, I also have a six month baby shoot Sunday morning and its 100 percent chance that day.

My weeks been alright, but I'd love for it to be Friday which is tomorrow. :) & it's pay day. I have to go get a baby shower gift for next weekend with my mom and I have a work out class on Saturday morning. Not much else if it rains..

What about you guys

Breathe..Only one more day of work until the weekend. I never appreciated my weekends until this job. Now I...basically live for them! I can't wait to sit on my butt on Friday night and watch a movie I've seen a million times, I can't wait to get up and go to Brittany's bridal shower on Saturday & eat some great food then go shop with Elliot and FINALLY get him some pants. Sunday..fathers day, see my grandfather who I just adore to pieces. What a great man. :) and wedding plan with my big cousin. It's going to be a great weekend...

well that's if this kitten doesn't stop jumping off high things...I feel like she's going to break her little legs one of these times!

Not much to say today, just that the weekends coming! :)

So I suppose I should post in this, since you two so clearly beat me to the punch.

Life is good & I'm impressed with how good I've been doing the last six months. Not to say I don't miss living with my mom, but I'm loving being on my own with Elliot. Our little townhouse needs work(cleaning wise) but it's our happy little home. Four months ago, we adopted two kittens Clara & Emma. I love driving up to the house and seeing them in the window waiting for me to come home. Last weekend, I was at the animal shelter I got them at, helping my mom pick out a cat after picking out a gorgeous tabby for her named Mabel, I saw one I couldn't live without myself. Little Abby is a 8 ounce black and white kitten..only 3 months old. So I think 3 cats are enough, no more for me :)

It was my year annvy at my full time job in April. I am back and forth about how I feel, but most days I'm so happy to even have a job and get a paycheck every two weeks. AND I gota raise last week so I must be doing something right. I'm still photographing weddings on the side, but it's really slow at the moment. I miss the extra income for sure, and updating my site. I hope it picks up, I'd love to do it full time and work from home. We'll see.

Elliot & I are going on four years in October. I absolutely love him<3. He puts up with me, I put up with him, we work well together. He's my better half for sure. I'm so blessed to have him in my life. We are celebrating our annvy in the Keys this year. My cousin has recently announced her engagement. I am beyond ecstatic for her. She's getting married at a state park in the Keys a day before our four years together. As long as she doesn't have our 'day' I'm good ;). I am beyond honored that I get to take part in the day as she asked me to be her PHOTOGRAPHER. I'll post plenty of photos from that on here and facebook for you guys to see.

Well that's all for now. The house is a mess, I have pictures to edit and laundry to continue. Love you both<3 Sleep well

wow it's been so long since i've last written in this journal. where has the time gone? or should i say what website has my time gone to? facebook, you are the devil. i use to love writing down my every move or thought and now that i'm older alot more becomes less open for the world to know and i only share the bare minimum amount, when needed. i'm a college graduate now :) i thought the day would never come, but it has and i now want to go to grad school. photography is still my absolute obsession and probably will be until the day i die. i have my own business doing wedding photography as well as beach family portraits. i love wedding photography but would love eventually to get into directing movies or doing a fashion magazine. i'm still living with my mom, and now 3 cats. i still have the same boyfriend of over two years. ill be 24 in a month n a few days..it's 2011. i can't wait for all this year has to offer.so bring it ;)

new years resolutions as follows
1.tone up
2. work out more
3. eat healthier
4. be a better person

I'm so sadly a hopeless romantic. Here it is, storming outside, me laying in bed (at my own house) on a Saturday morning which is completely weird in itself, and all I can do is miss my boyfriend. Please let me find something to do the next two days, so I don't feel absolutely miserable about him going to Ft Lauderdale to the Polo Comp. You would think with finals next week, there'd be so much to do but there really isn't. ....Just this still life as a metaphor, I am putting off until the last possible minute. PUT A FORK IN ME IM DONE. My brain is fried, and studio work is the last thing I want to do. I think, for this semester I am beyond proud of what I've achieved. I've really tried and took the extra step to make myself known at school with my work, as well as worked on my web site(which hi! is almost done) and am trying to find someone to print my beautiful business cards.

As of next Thursday, I will officially have six months to go until I will be a college graduate ;] It's taken me five years to get to that point, and I am more then ready to experience the stress the real world has to offer. Elliot has finally decided we should move in together in May, which makes me so happy. Key West in two weeks. NC in 3 1/2-4...Life is coming together for me, slowly but surely.

Now for the start of the christmas cookies & childhood home movies with my best friend(since I was 3 <3333) and my mom.

November, November, November.

Three weeks of doing no photo projects, oops! my own fault of slacking. I thought doing all Liberal Arts projects would make things go that much faster with these last two months. Everything would be done, and I would be less stress. HOWEVER I should never ever underestimate my professors and their tricks of trade of giving us more to do then we can possible handle, but I will take the shortly assigned projects, smile and do them. & Come evaluation,watch out. Speaking of school, and having only 7 months from graduating I have decided to not only take thesis and portfolio(have to) but throw in Graphic Design, just because....maybe a little Buddhist Art History.

Someone enlighten me on this. If someone invites you and your boyfriend to their boyfriends Halloween party and you say "I don't know I have to see", then it ends up turning into a "No" do you think your friend should be mad and never talk to you again? I never promised I would go, I never even left you hanging saying "We will see" I gave you an answer. I didn't have a costume and would feel uncomfortable being around a bunch of people when I wasn't even in the spirit to dress up. Then the next day, texts you saying "Come downtown for Halloween" so you do, only for them to never show up and never even text you back. Let's be mature? If you have an issue with how I handled not wanting to go to your party, tell me. Don't stop talking to me? Isn't that the true story though, that the people that you want to be your friends won't talk to you, and the ones that do you don't want to talk to them in the first place.


1/2 to graduation. Key Westin''*; North Carolina o0 home sweet home o0o and finally 2010

So life is absolutely wonderful, but what else is new.

I am in the process of having my business card created, I bought my domain name and am designing my web site. Everything is going perfect at the moment. I shot my first wedding out on Longboat Key for a family at their mansion of a home. The cermony was beautiful then following was the reception buffet lunch with caters. I recieved almost $300 for 3 hours + editing. The family was so sweet. They end up loving my pictures, thank god. A good reference for later =) My friends Lisa and Kaleb that I go to NC with (friends of Elliot's moms) are having a October wedding at a church followed by Marina Jacks(this bay front restaunt downtown) Classyyy. I get to take the video for it. I'm being trained on doing that in my job now anyhow, so it will be easy. In December Elliot is the best man in a Key West wedding right before Christmas, I'm obviously the photographer for that =) We might work it out so we get to stay at the Bed and Breakfast for me doing the pictures. Soo Exicted

In other news; senior year starts in a few weeks. Holy shit. I'm a senior. I will be out in the real world May 7th, 2010! I'm ready, ready, ready to graduate. It's going to be amazing. I think Elliot and I are either going to Hawaii for 2 weeks or Europe for a couple weeks for my graduation present. I will need it, after thesis and portfolio and the pressure of this year.

Not much else here, I'll keep you updated =) xoxox

Goodbyes have always been hard for me, especially when I am not sure of when I'm going to see the person, if ever again? I know it is apart of life, but in this case I wish it didn't have to be. How do I go about this? This person I am talking about, she has easily been an inspiration towards my schooling, my passion of Photography and just in general telling me to keep trucking when I've had the worst day possible and don't feel like being at work any longer. She is geniue and the type of lady my grandma use to be. I think that's what makes me so fond of her in the first place, she is like another grandma to me.

Well, I did my best in saying bye tonight, with the tears ready to pour out, I didn't cry luckily, "Have a safe trip to Utah, Please keep in touch" handing her my note, hugged her bye n I walked away. It's so much easier to write in a note, all the things I appericated. and that is that, I am now left in a complete utter mess here, and she is moving away to Utah with her family who she should be with in the first place. Only two more days and I am on vacation, I'll need it after today.

:sigh: :(

Junior year is done after next week. I'd like to say "Wow time flys, but it really doesn't".. I feel like I've been in school for five years. In going to this school, I have seen the best of me, and the worst of me up until this point in time and everything in between. I have wanted to quit several times, but won't let myself get to that point, I want this so much and I'll have it by this time next year =]. Senior Thesis show tomorrow night! to see what I'll be up against in the outside world, and more so what Tom 'oh chief of the PDI' is looking for in these year long senior projects.

Other news, Internship is going rather well. I feel awkard at times but it's all good.. like the other day when I was minding my own business in the office, decided to take a quick five minute break and choke down the leftover salad I had gotten from Whole Foods, I scramped in the kitchen to the fridge as I open the fridge...out of the side of my eye I see boobs. Boobs? Wedding photographers boobs. She was walking around I guess sunbathing outside NUDE. Keeping in my mind that this is her house, I went back to the office in the back of the house and sat there confused at people and why they do the things they do even in the privacy of their own homes, when other people are around. :sigh: The afternoon was spent photoshopping sexy pictures of the bride taken with the flowers she walked down the aisle with, in her ass...well her stretch marks off her chest and the other nonsense I had to see. But aside from seeing those beautiful creations I play with her adorable poodle puppy, sent out some blast emails, answer the phones, going to shoot some beach weddings soon..

Elliot is the apple of my eye. It's amazing how I still get butterflies every time I see him even after 5 1/2 months of being together almost everyday. 6 months on Monday, and I think we are going to try out the Melting Pot. I'm soo thrilled, because I've never been there or even had fondue before. Hopefully this cute feeling lasts me for a while.
