(This is Elena making what we call her “Daddy face.”)
On todays agenda: Finish painting some shelves red for the girls playroom, bake chocolate chip cookies, have friends over for burgers, walk around the neighborhood and meet some neighbors, take Alice for a long walk at the park (done!), plant more grass in the backyard, find a local bookstore to buy cardboard for the girls chore chart, and, oh yeah…school with Elena.
I hope it to get it all done, if not, oh well. There’s always tomorrow!
I’ve been spending a lot of time and creative energy on our photography business lately, I wanted to see and try it out. So far, I have to be honest, I’m really not liking it. We haven’t had any jobs yet (it’s only been three days since we launched) but I feel that my head is in another place. I spend so much time planning and thinking about what I would do for a newborn shoot, wedding shoot, etc that I end up giving my girl the tired, leftover, un-creative parts of me. Boring.
The good news is, I’m not in this photography thing alone. My friend will soon be back and take over almost everything, except photo editing which is my favorite thing of all. It truly is wonderful to have friends.
All that to say this: I refuse to give my creative energy to anyone but friends and family, for now. Some women have it in endless amounts and can spread it all over church, family, friends and complete strangers, but I just can’t.
So, hello girls! How about we do some finger painting today?
