Nerve Wrecking

As scary as it was - and I totally rambled and fumbled my words - I will do another - and get better!

Did you manage to tune in??

INSPIRATION? My Mommy!

Having a mommy - as positive - happy - bubbly - just BRILLIANT - as mine... 

is such an inspiration. 

She's an absolute delight to be around. 

Whatever she is faced with ( in life ) - she tackles it head on 

with a smile! 

Mommy is one of the little pieces of the puzzle that made me WHO I am!

She is an inspiration. 

She inspires me to dream - and catch those dreams. 

She inspires me to be happy through the toughest times.

Dreams Take Flight 

As soon as it was confirmed that I had been accepted on to the Dreams Take Flight team - as one of their Photographers for Disneyland - I hunted high and low for my Donald Duck.

Donald Duck has always been my favourite - and I think it’s because I could mimic his voice (or at least I thought I could) - but I  tried before I arrived at Disney and I can no longer do it . . . I just sound like a dying duck instead!

It was at exactly the same time that we had moved - so I was going through every box anyway - but I could not find my Donald Duck!

I did however find a letter from my little friend - thanking us for her treasure chest and Donald Duck - so clearly I thought she needed it more than me!

How much for a BOUDOIR Shoot?

Today we get our KEYS! Woohoo!

In three days - we get to move into our forever home!

New home.

New office.

New [outdoor] studio.

No more dull beige walls to stare at when I’m in thinking (ok - distracted) mode - I don’t even have a pot plant to look at!

But it’s ok - because in just a few days - not only will I potentially have a beautiful floral arrangement sat pretty on my shelves - but I will have a whole forest of trees to gaze into - as I ‘work’!

And I’m sure my work motivation will kick in once the novelty of new has gone - and it has sunk in that this is it - our dream has come true!

Here is an AWESOME list - to help you find the perfect GIFT!!

At 33 years young (and six days - already!!!), I was expecting to go out for a few drinks with my friends - shopping with hubby - and a ‘family’ dinner with our Canadian family.

To CELEBRATE...

I wasn’t expecting prezzies!

Well, maybe from my hubby, hehe!

But not from my friends - my ‘family’ - or even my mommy (because I have told her several times that she really doesn’t have to - but she wants to - and I can’t say no to that).

I have received such beautiful gifts this year - my antique tea set is now complete - I have brand new (bright white) converse - and plenty of nail polish colours to get me through the seasons!

Thank you so much - I LOVE them all!

Think it. DO it!

Thinking out loud! 

This morning - I woke suddenly from my sleep. 

My dream was basically an episode of the Walking Dead - abandoned buildings and deserted towns that I would move on from - leaving those that I just met, behind. - leaving in my Mini Cooper that climbed stairs and packed up into my pocket when I had no need to drive. 

I ended up stood with my mom and dad - in an office full of women who gathered and listened intently to my daddy as he raved about my achievements - and the model wine bar I’d made at school. 

But there was another man in the room too - and he was stood inappropriately close to me. I didn’t know this man, but yet he had his arm weighing down across my shoulders. I felt uncomfortable.

Face YOUR Fears

Face YOUR Fears - like I did!

Twenty-one years ago - I was abandoned up the Eiffel Tower!

And 38 years prior to that - Audrey Hepburn apparently got ‘lost’ up the tower too!

I was shopping for souvenirs - and when I came out of the store with keychain in hand - my school class had gone.

They can’t have gone far - surely?!

But they had.

I searched for them - and found no-one - they had left me.

At twelve years old - I was stood alone - in a foreign country - up the Eiffel Tower!

They are just EXCUSES!

They are just EXCUSES!!

They ARE just excuses!

Yesterday was a pretty productive day…

I finished up a boudoir edit - and burned the images to a beautiful personalized disc.

The Client Appreciation Party got re-organized due to the change in location - and I think it’s going to be even better now!

Oh - and I started working on my first BOOK!!
