I Quit My Job

What???? I did what??? Yes, you read that correctly. I quit my job. I have 1 week left. It will be a big change but one I am very excited for. First, I get to be a full time mom. That has been my dream basically my entire life. Second, I get to help my husband grow his business. I watched my parents work together on their business and now I get to do the same. Third, I am going to be giving more attention to my photography. I am focusing mostly on births because that is where my heart is. I have loved doing weddings but the world is full of incredible wedding photographers. There is a growing need for birth photographers and I love it. I am so excited for this next phase in life.

And a picture, just for fun!

Yesterday we celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary. I can’t believe that we have been married for 4 years already. I’m sure I will say the same thing every year but it is amazing how fast the time really does fly. I couldn’t imagine life with anyone else. And since I established last week how much I love music, I will share the lyrics to one of my new favorite Lady A songs. I think they sum it up pretty well…

I don’t know how many stars fill the sky
I know we’re here, but I don’t know why
Maybe there’s some other life out there
But as long as you’re here with me, baby, I don’t really careThere is only one great mystery
I keep searching for the answer desperately
Tell me, tell me baby, tell me please
What did I ever do to make you fall for me?

Don’t know what happens when we leave this world
But I know I’ll go right on loving you girl
I’ll close my eyes and drift off into the blue
And if I go first, I will wait for you

There is only one great mystery
I keep searching for the answer desperately
Tell me, tell me baby, tell me please
What did I ever do to make you fall for me?

I guess I’ll never really know
How I deserve someone that loves me so

There is only one great mystery
I keep searching for the answer desperately
Tell me, tell me baby, tell me please
What did I ever do to make you fall for me?

Happy Anniversary Love!

Yesterday was Joe’s 27th birthday. He doesn’t like to make a big deal out of birthdays so it was very low key. Example: dinner was frozen pizza! (At least it was Digiorno) I got him something for his exhaust (I couldn’t begin to tell you what) and the 5th season of Burn Notice.

When I asked him if he wanted a cake he said he wanted chocolate cake with chocolate icing. I was thinking, ok, I probably need to get a grandma’s recipe. He said nope, I want the Happy Birthday Jesus cake my mom makes! (Backstory: on Christmas Day my mother-in-law would make a birthday cake for Jesus) Turns out this cake is from a box and canned frosting! Love it! So, I make the cake. I frost the cake. We load up and head to my parent’s for the weekend. Halfway there I look down and my cake has split right across the top! Birthday fail. Oh well, it still tasted good!! Lesson learned: don’t rush the cooling process. Be patient.

Another year older, another year closer to 30.
