Dang. I. Am. Tired.
Ok, let me see if I can fill you all in on the past two weeks…Moved out of old studio on Franklin Street into new studio/lingerie boutique on Oak Street, and the listed the old studio on AirBnB. Those several words do not nearly entail all that has went into this procedure…nor the sweat, tears, and aggravation it caused at times, but neither does it tell of the friends I have surrounding me that have pitched in tirelessly to accomplish this with me. My husband has been such a rock star during this and climbing the ladder for me, because if you know me, I don’t do heights…I am also scared of heights for others that I see on them lol….anyway, I am such a blessed chick!!
On August the 24th I had already had plans to take my 16 year old son to a little, before being a junior in high school, mama/son trip to Asheville. This was all planned before I decided to move/open lingerie/rent out old space and I did have second thoughts about going. I could have explained to him that I just didn’t have the time right now, and, being the most freakin awesome kid he is, would have shrugged it off like it was no big deal. I went anyway and left all my work and stuff I needed to be doing, and I am so so so so glad I did. We had the best time (well…I did anyway, he tolerated me lol). I realize so much more that life is short and fragile and so finite and my son will only be readily available to me just a couple more short years. It was a priceless trip, and guess what, all that stuff was still here waiting for me when I got back, and it is getting done.
We had our first shoot in the new studio Monday and it was amazing!!! September is almost full, but due to some reschedules there are a couple spots that have recently opened up. October I will only be working at the hospice home on a very limited basis to be able to be at my lingerie shop more and to talk to potential boudoir photography clients. The grand opening for the lingerie boutique is going to be September 10th from 1-6 and I am going to have some specials going on that day.
Now…I am going to be able to have some time to kick back, but probably not until October. Good thing I thrive on a full calendar because I sure have one and love every minute of it!!!
