I am heading back to the Outer Banks with my brothers and some friends (leaving at midnight tonight) and I cannot wait to go back. My time there last year was especially significant, because that Friday I had locked up my office for the last time, and that vacation was like the horizon for lord-knows-what that lay ahead. I was as scared as I was excited, and that has been a feeling that has stuck with me all year. That thrill of not knowing what lies ahead, the fear of not having a steady income, the exhilaration of knowing I'm doing something that "people don't do." Life is such an adventure.
Speaking of adventures, I didn't get to go anywhere cool this week to take pictures, due to aforementioned excessive to-do lists, so instead I made a photo set of my favorite forest photos:
|"Into the Woods," available in my Etsy shop.|
I also finished a (much belated) birthday gift for a friend of mine who lived in Hawaii for a few years:
|"Alohabloom," which I also added to my shop.|
So all of that is finished, I got all of my orders shipped, errands finished, visited my very pregnant friend one more time since next time I see her, she will have an "outside baby," as she calls it. Now all I have to do is pack and drive and then relax, tan, and perhaps enjoy some adult beverages. Responsibly. Walk the beach, take some pictures, smell the salt air and feel the warm sand. AND no hurricanes in sight. Party time :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and week and HAPPY FALL!!!
