Another item on my to-do list, however, has now been completed – adding more tulle to the pink tutu I made a while back. I bought some hot pink tulle to add to the light pinks and I love how it turned out. I couldn’t wait to take some photos, but the wather was NOT co-operating (i.e. – 30 degree with the windchill). I agree with my 7 year old’s sentiment “I wish windchill did not EXIST! Except maybe in the summer…” Ditto! ANywa, I forced her into the tutu for some photos, but I’m not all that happy with them. What brave girl, though, going outside for a few shots before school. BRRRR! No, I didn’t torture her, she was outside for about 1 minute and I snapped the photo. She wasn’t even cold (she says) but I was. And no, my daughter is not blue I just used my billboard action for a fun look for the last 2 photos. I kinda like it. I can’t believe this child will be baptized in a month. CRAZAY! I have full confidence in her, though. She’s fantastic. She is already pestering me about fasting on Sundays now. *sigh* to be that excited about going hungry…..
So, if you actually read blog titles you may be wondering about the last part. Remember when I was having a “wo is me” moment a while back? Well, I had another one. I blame it on hormones, but it was still unwelcome! BLAH! I got to wondering (strictly through negative thinking) if I should have ventured into the professional photography thing. I felt ready to pack it up, pack it in! I suppose it was amplified by the fact that I haven’t been loving the shots I’ve been getting around here lately, feeling slightly isolated here, having my 18 month old crying non-stop for hours (still not sure why) and maybe a bit of the “winter blahs” creeping into the picture. Did I have any valid excuse for feeling that way? Absolutely not. In fact, I had had a great day with some gals from the ward, but somehow I ended up feeling so down by the end of the day.
