It's been awhile...

Life has been so busy. We lost our sweet Zoee two weeks ago. That was a really tough thing for our family. We really miss her. When I come in the door and I don't have her waiting for me right there, excited to see me and her chain jingle-jangling...when we are cooking and she's not right at our feet waiting for either things that drop or for us to throw her some scraps...when I get up in the morning and we don't follow our everyday routine of going outside together and then immediately feeding her (cuz if you don't feed her immediately she lets you know) many things we are all missing about our sweet Zoee.

I have opened the Camera Art studio in Hillsboro and we had the Portland Bridal Show last weekend. Wow! What an event that was! It was my first time setting up the display and having to figure out how to do that. It comes with about 6 panels and you only need 4 to set up our 10 foot booth. I discovered after setting it up the night before that I grabbed the wrong pieces that fit the 10 foot booth size. With the amount of time we had left, we decided to take the one piece off the end, take it home and do surgery on it. We got done at about 9pm, an hour before our time was up!

We are beginning to book weddings for the 2010 summer season and I am excited about the brides and grooms that we will be capturing the memories for on their special day. I hope it is a busy wedding season for us.

Well, that's it for now. Back to work.

Glad to hear the bridal show went well! So sorry about Zoee... I know that is a really hard thing to go through... Blessings to you and the family.

So sorry about Zoee, I know how hard that is. I still remember my Spanky dog after many years of her being gone.

How exciting that you are getting bookings, you will do great.

I'm so sorry to hear about Zoee. How sad it is to lose a wonderful pet. We currently have two dogs. Jennifer is 15 and I don't know how much longer she'll be with us. She can't see very well, can barely hear and I think she's got a little doggy dimentia.

Our other, Lucy is about 12 and she's getting to where she's haveing a hard time getting up and down the stairs, problem being you have to go down the stairs to be let outside in the back yard. Not sure how that will be when she really can't make it on her own. I don't think I can carry a 50 lb. dog with my bad knees. I carry Jennifer down every day, but she's only about 5 lbs.

On a happier note, I'm so glad your photography business is off and running. I hope you get lots of bookings!
