Well, February seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye.
I feel like I’ve been out of touch this month from all my bloggy-duties. Apologies.
To say I’ve been “busy” this month, would be a gross understatement.
After several big signs from the universe, I finally took the plunge and started my own photography business
Everything is still in the very early stages, but you’ve got to start somewhere, right?
Most of my free time has been spent tweaking the website, looking into photo labs, wrapping my head around marketing and packaging, and setting up introductory meetings with potential clients.
It’s a bit terrifying, but I feel like the timing is kind of perfect.
I never imagined I would consider myself “good enough” to be an actual photographer (you know, the kind that people actually hire); but if I don’t believe in myself, who will?
I still have a lot of growing to do. I’m looking forward to where this year will take me; as far as professional development is concerned. I’m excited for the journey.
Since we’re in the final stretch (month) of winter, I find myself needing to keep busy in order for my cabin fever to stay at bay.
These cold days are driving us all a bit stir-crazy. JBird and I have been doing copious amounts of painting and baking to help make our days a bit more enjoyable.
This week, I’ve been motivated to really clean and organize the house.
I dragged bookcases around the downstairs, went through most of our rooms and filled several garbage bags to the brim with items to be donated. I’m in full-on Spring Cleaning mode.
On top of the new business, and all the cleaning, I’ve also been working on bringing together an Alternative Schooling Panel for this year’s Natural Parenting Expo.
I’ll check back in, in the beginning of March.
Until then, there’s much more work to be done! (like about 7 loads of laundry)
