Catching Up: Photography, Life etc.

It’s been three-ish weeks since my last post. Life got a little busy for a minute there.
I’ve also been enjoying the busy-ness and the summer.
So Danny is gone training, which I’ve touched on before, but he will be visiting over the 4th of July weekend. So that’s awesome.

I’ve launched my small business -> www.carolmariephoto.com

I’ve had a few session so far. They’ve been free but I wanted to build up my portfolio. And so far it has been good.
Of course I’m really enjoying it. It’s so fun trying new things and learning along the way.

I’ve been hanging with Annabel and I have seen some of my friends who I haven’t seen in months.

It’s been a good past couple weeks but I really do miss Danny and I know Annabel does too.

Sibling Photo Shoot

So for Mother’s Day my friend wanted to get some nice photos of her and her brother for their mother. She wanted enough to create a small album and get some framed. I ended up taking 280 photos! It was a lot of fun. I am by no means a professional but it was great practice and I’m glad she trusted me to do it. These are just some of them.

February Sum Up

February was kind of a quite month. Probably because of the extremely cold weather and snow storms.

turned 24

read:¬†Tess of the D’Ubervilles, Serena, Wild, The Shining Girls, In the Woods, The Likeness
(hit the half way mark on my reading goal for this year, I should up the ante)

booked a hall for the wedding

built a bookshelf with Danny

birthday party with my girlfriends

weekend

Although Danny was gone through the whole weekend it was still a good one. My friends came over on Friday to celebrate my birthday and I spent all day Saturday hanging out with Annabel and reading. It was the first day in months that I didn’t leave the house. I also finally painted the bookshelf that Danny built for me. Sunday I went shopping with my mom and sister. We got some wedding ideas and found some good deals for wedding stuff.

I can’t wait to get the bookshelf in our bedroom!

Annabel fell asleep on me while I was reading.
It’s so hard to train her to stay off the furniture because she is so needy and cuddly.
And cute so I can’t say no.

She also was sleeping with her paw on my hand.

Having everyone over on Friday night really wore her out.
She’s so cute when she’s calm and sleeping.

my birthday ‘party’

This is the second birthday I’m celebrating while with Danny…And the second one he missed because of the Marines.
At least this year he’s in the same country as me!

So since he was going to be gone for the whole weekend I decided to have a little
birthday get together with my girlfriends.

I had a lot of fun and I’m so glad I got to see them – it’s been months!

Annabel of course had a ton of fun and was completely worn out.

I can’t wait for Danny to get home from drill!
