the last day of August

Today is an exciting day for our family…we closed on our new house!!! We’re beyond thrilled about it. Brent has actually only been to it one time – the day we decided to buy it. Sarah and I have been lucky enough to hang out there quite a bit during all the inspections and tests and such. Every time I go I’m more in awe of how right it is for us at this time in our lives. It is exactly what we wanted and exactly what we asked for. If any of you follow Big Brother (and I’m embarassed to say that I do…obsessively) then you’ll understand when I say that yesterday I was so thankful for our new house that I caught myself praying outloud Jameka-style. Whoa. Maybe I need to find something else to do three nights a week during BB.

So we close today and start moving in tomorrow with the help of my dad, Sue, my Aunt Wanda and cousin Lisa. So excited!

And one more cool thing about this last day of August that I want to tell you about. When we first moved to Huntsville I was feeling really overwhelmed about where/when/how to start with my photography business here. I spent almost a year building my portfolio in Colorado and I really feel like I’m ready to make an official go of it here. But with the new baby coming and not knowing anyone and needing a place to live and on and on and on I was just at a loss. I finally decided to put myself on a timeline and assign achievable tasks for each month, beginning with August and ending with my planned launch month – March, ’08. Well I’m happy to announce that I accomplished both of my August tasks and one of them includes creating my website! I want to run it by a few people before I actually put it out there for the world but for now, check out a sneakpeek…

That first image actually cycles through five different shots. This one just happened to be up when I did the screenshot…and she’s one of my fave cuties of all time! If you’re a photographer I’m sure you recognize this right away as a winklet template and I know some people thing they’re the spawn of Satan but I’m thrilled to finally have a web presence (well, almost) and I’m excited to share it with all of you…SOON! 🙂

I love love love it. I want to create a site soon, but I want to get this baby here first, because I’m not sure after he arrives how soon I’ll jump back in!!

I also just responded to your message on 2Peas!

Congrats Erin on everything. So excited for you and your family!!

JenniferSeptember 1, 2007 - 7:03 am

Oh boy! Another fabulous Erin creation to check out daily when I should be working!! (One girl at work even asks periodically how Sarah is doing). Guess that means no posting for a few days until you get settled…Hope it goes well!

carolSeptember 1, 2007 - 7:27 am

I just knew things would go well for you and Brent on the house. I am a BB fan also so I can relate with the Jameka thing. I guess it is just a way to escape from the reality of the real world.

StephanieSeptember 1, 2007 - 9:21 pm

yay! I also am guilty of having a winklet template!! I love it now that I figured out how to use it! 😉

Can’t wait to see the finished product!!

True confession – my mom and I watch BB too. Oh the SHAME!

SapphireJuly 16, 2014 - 8:48 am

Thanks for writing, yes the blue dress she has is ainamzg. I know that she got it custom made in India. If you are planning on going to India I am sure one of the shops can make you a similar dress. I hope that helps.
