I Can't Sit Still

I don't know about you, but sometimes I get so excited about something new that I want to do ALL THE THINGS and do them RIGHT NOW! But I'm also in a season where I realize that slowing down and taking a breather is a good thing. It's Spring and the sun is shining here in Southern California...I need to remind myself to soak it in and experience renewal rather than just relish in the rush of daily life.

SADDLEBAGS

Ah, age. You are a such a little brat.

Every now and again, I’ll catch a reflection of myself and see a big batch of grey hair…and I call my salon immediately. Likewise, I might notice my frown lines deepening…not because I frown a lot, but rather because I squint due to too much sun. In those cases, I slap on some deep moisturizer and call my facialist for a little microdermabrasion.

However, I just saw something HORRIFYING that I don’t know how to control. It’s new and it’s NOT pretty.

I shot a wedding earlier this month and my second shooter sent me her files today. And I saw the nastiness…deep, dark circles under my eyes. WHERE DID THESE SADDLEBAGS COME FROM and HOW LONG HAVE I HAD THEM?

See how sad and pathetic they are?

Anyone have any solutions? I need to put a REAL smile back on my face…not one like this scary fake one…and one that makes me look younger than I am. And I’m pretty sure it won’t be real until I get rid of these bags! ; )

WHERE I BLOG

My friend Kate, the Centstational Girl, is having a linky party today on where we blog. And because I’d jump off a bridge if my friends were jumping, I’m linking up!

The photo to the right is my GIGANTIC home office. {smirk} Yes, the tiny shoebox that I call home does not have an office, nook, or even built-in. Rather, I have a corner of my bedroom where I do my blogging and run my photography business. It’s tiny, but it works.

When I initially decided to make this corner my office, I knew instantly that I wanted a mirrored desk. It had the degree of “bling” that I was searching for. I had a few options to choose from, but was STOKED to find this one for a killer deal at JC Penney of all places! They have a great furniture department and this desk was hand delivered.

The convex mirror came from Aaron Brother’s and the shelves came from Target. I HATE THOSE SHELVES. They were so challenging to hang properly, and man, they fell out of the wall about seven gabillion times as I was trying to hang them. The accessories came from all sorts of stores. I really love the vintage cameras and the bust. I renovated the chair as a part of another linky party last year – woo – and the iMac is my newest baby! I LOVE this sucker!!!

So, there you have it. I blog in the corner of my bedroom on a mirrored desk with my FABULOUS computer. It’s not flashy, but I couldn’t be happier.

Where do YOU blog???
