More than you ever cared to know…I may have taken the ‘about me’ page one paragraph too far.
*Married to my high school sweetheart for 11 yrs *Attempting to raise 3 kids (ages 9, 6 &3) College Degree: Mass Communications from Mankato State *Height: 5’3 *Weight: Like, what it says on my drivers license? Or the truth? eeeh, not going there. *Religion: Lutheran *Nationality: Irish *Politics: Conservative…yet clueless at the same time. *Blood type: O+ *Handedness: Left *Camera: Nikon D700 *Best vacation spot: Trunks Bay, St. John’s. *Position: 1st base (kidding, those who know me know I can’t throw to save my life). *Favorite Movies: Dirty Dancing & the Hangover *Special Skills: Pouring a perfect margarita, playing piano, meat slicing & making jokes at funerals (an unfortunate side affect of constantly wanting to lighten moods).
I like to eat dessert after every meal. I like to creep on clients using facebook (don’t be afraid). I like having weekends off to go up north with my fam. I like turning every day conversations into something totally inappropriate. I like using my mom as my own personal ‘guide to life’…she’s better than google. I like seeing my children do well in school…I’m so proud of them…and mildly concerned that there was a switch at the hospital (these things happen). I like going to conferences and workshops for photography…finally, some schooling that doesn’t put me to sleep. I like girls night out (or GNO, for those ‘in the know’)…isn’t it time for another? Ladies? Oh, and I like my job…a lot.
I don’t like having conversations with deep, philosophical people…all the head-nodding and mmm-hmmming on my end is exhausting. I don’t like mushrooms and peas…they are not welcome here. I don’t like bathroom scales…they make me hyperventilate. I don’t like when people write obscure facebook status’s…if you have something of substance to say, say it, otherwise shut your pie-hole. I don’t like getting older…the years are starting to whiz by at an alarming rate. I don’t like being early for anything other than work…if I show up early to an event, I will find something to do in my car until I absolutely have to get out.
Was I supposed to mention my photography journey somewhere on this page? Let’s just say it’s been a long, twisty road filled with a lot of white wicker. Getting to this point in my business has been so exciting…God has blessed me with a job that makes me happy to wake up every morning, a beautiful studio to work in every day and amazing clients and friends that allow me to live my dream. I almost burst into song just now.
