My sweet mom sent me a Starbucks gift certificate after I got my wisdom teeth out a few weeks ago and I just remembered. What a great way to start the weekend. She sent the letter from “Winnie the Pooh” and even signed it from him (I have had a winnie the pooh that my grandma gave me when I was one, and still sleep with it do this day. #needtogrowup). She also put two dog paw stickers on the outside of the envelope and wrote my dog’s names next to them...like she could really trick me and make me think that my dogs actually stamped it. I love my mom.
The other day was SO nice out that I decided to walk to get lunch at work. When I was walking back I passed a guy waiting for the bus drinking coffee. Then the bus came. Then he just placed his coffee cup on the ground and jumped on the bus. I thought “Really?!!?” So I walked over to pick up the coffee to throw it away and happened to see the cup had this written on it:
IF YOU ARE GOING TO LITTER, MAKE SURE THERE ISN’T A “TAKE CARE OF OUR PLANET” MESSAGE ON IT! #firstworldproblems
I’m not going to lie, part of me thought I was on a show where there were video cameras and they just wanted to see if I would do the right thing and pick up a strangers trash. I mean, I would have thrown it away anyways. But I did look around for cameras.
I’m going down to see my boyfriend this weekend. YAY! Since they spend HOURS warming up, I plan on taking a trip in to Charlotte to find some awesome places to take pictures. Any recommendations?!
Someone at work yesterday told me that her wedding photographer cancelled and asked me if I wanted to do it. I said, “YEAH!' Then realized I have never done a wedding by myself before and got super nervous. Yikes!
Now that I’m really getting in to wedding photography, I’m starting to think that this is really what I want to do in life. I might be jumping the gun, and I know I’m new at it, but I figure if I’m going to do something I might as well do it right.
So I spend the past couple of days thinking of business names, how I want to get my name out there, setting up a website, portfolio, etc. Any suggestions on business names would be appreciated! I was thinking Susan Louise Photography (Louise is my middle name, originally Louisa from Sweeden :) but I can’t figure out if that’s cool and hip, or sounds like a 70 year old. Thoughts? Be honest!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
