Lately...

I haven't been as good with blogging this summer as I should have been, but I needed a little hiatus for a while. Things were super busy. Mike with school, me with photo shoots. We haven't slowed down in the slightest, but I think I'm ready to be back to blogging regularly.

We've been doing pretty well lately. Mike is entering the final stretch of school, with only a year, 18 months left. Yay! It has been a long, hard road, and we can't wait to move on. I'm so proud of what he's been able to accomplish with all the massive obstacles he's had to face. He's already had several job offers in recent months with people who want to hire him when he's a bit closer to graduation, so that's been encouraging!

As for me, it's the same old stuff! I did my first wedding in August, which I was pretty nervous for, but as soon as I got there, as my mom puts it, my "photographer mode" kicked in, and I realized I had no reason to be worried because not only were the bride and groom awesome to work with, but I know what I'm doing. It was a long day, but so much fun! I've already booked two more weddings during Christmas break, so things aren't slowing down anytime soon with everything that comes along with weddings and mixing a bunch of family shoots in. I love it though. I'm so blessed to be able to have a job which also happens to be my passion.

We've also been hanging out with Mike's family a lot, which has been amazingly fun. It's so nice to live this close to them. We picked Sabrina and her family up at the airport today (they went to Disneyland this week...with the exception on Nate), and while Mike and I were sitting the in park and wait, we let Nate out of the carseat for a bit. 
Yes, we were supporting our Cougars deep in Ute territory. On game day. Surrounded by cars sporting Ute paraphernalia. It was awesome. We start 'em young. We are a Blue Blooded family. Here's to hoping we get some revenge for last year. Go Cougars!
