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.

catching up

Annabel enjoyed her Saturday morning news.

And of course her and Danny had play time.

I painted this shelf and our flowers are doing awesome.
Their scent is so strong!

Danny’s nephews are too cute.

We had a family party.
We played volleyball for hours.
It was pretty serious.

This is our attempt at a family photo.

She’s the best.

It has been one year since I moved out of my parents’ home and into Danny’s.
(Which is now ours).

I moved in two months (exactly) before Danny came home from his deployment with the Marines.

I can’t even describe how the time has gone. It feels like I just moved
and yet it feels like it’s been years since Danny came home.

Within this year we’ve finished a deployment (well he did – you know what I mean).
I started a new job and we got Annabel.
Got engaged!
Along with a ton of other little things.

It was definitely the best decision ever.

I feel 110% at home there.

Danny is awesome – our life together is awesome.

the end.

Key West: Part One

Wednesday:

Wednesday was our traveling day.
Two flights and a four hour car ride.
We got to the hotel around 11:30 pm so we went straight to bed.
It was weird driving into Key West at night because once we woke up in the morning I was like “I wonder what Key West looks like”.

Our hotel room was really cute and I loved where we stayed.

Thursday:

 Thursday we decided to check out the beaches. We wanted to see which one we liked the best and would return to.
We found a nice one with lots of actual beach and wasn’t ever really crowded. Plus free parking! Can’t beat that!

There was an amazing restaurant right on the beach.
We ended up going there twice and I got calamari in marinara sauce. AMAZING!

That night we went to the restaurant located at our hotel. It had a rating of 4.5 stars and I would have given it 100.
Best seafood I’ve ever had!

Friday:

We got up early to go snorkeling.
Danny loved it.
I did not.
I chickened out. I’m actually shocked that I got out in the ocean at all.

I was thinking they were going to take us somewhere shallow. Nope.
As soon as I got in the water I panicked. Literally.
I have anxiety issues to begin with.

So I got out as fast as I possibly could. I really didn’t want to ruin it for Danny by hanging on to him the whole time.

After snorkeling we did some cite-seeing.

Wedding Wednesday: Bridal Show

A couple weeks ago my mom and I went to our first bridal show. We were successful, we booked a DJ and put a down payment on tuxedos and found a potential invitation place. We also went to a new church that morning to check it out for the ceremony, but it’s out. It was a Catholic church but it is not the one. We were also able to get a few things for the reception. It’s nice to check some stuff off our list, and to have some plans. I think we’re working at a nice pace. 1 1/2 years until the wedding! We’re doing good.

And this is our lovely photo strip we took at the show.
