You know you’ve done something right when the guests of an event you photograph regularly email you to say they’re excited you are going to be there. Next week, I pack up to head to Colorado for the 5th annual 50th birthday party of one of my favorite clients. I’m so excited because the party is a ton of fun every year, and I love that I’ve become part of the expectation of the event.
I’m also looking forward to spending time with several friends, many of whom I haven’t seen since I moved back to Arizona last summer. It should be a great trip.
Alissa is ridiculously excited to fly on the plane. We got her a new suitcase and she’s been begging to pack it ever since we brought it home on Monday. She’s also really excited about flying on the plane – her first plane trip was on her first birthday, so I’m sure she doesn’t remember it at all. I love the enthusiasm she has for explaining to people that we are “going to Colorado on a plane.” Oh the innocence of being four.
I’m looking forward to the break as well. It’s been a trying couple of weeks (months, actually), but I’ve managed to persevere. I keep hearing something about Mercury in retrograde having something to do with it, and if I believed in that kinda stuff, I might actually look forward to Sunday.
