BIG NEWS!

I need to inturrupt our regularly scheduled blog to announce something.

I left my job today to go full speed ahead with my photography business. I know this blog is supposed to be about weight loss and stuff, but this is just too much a part of my life to keep it totally seperate. I've talked only very briefly about being a photograher, so I don't think many of you know.

I've been working part time at a really stupid, horrible, no good job for the past 2 and a half years. It's been sucking the life out of me and leaving me totally uninspired to create anything of value. I USED TO work in the housing/construction industry doing a project mgmt/desk job (totally not me, I know) and since the downturn of the economy, business has been well...slow to say the least.

Last Friday my boss was like...how about you take next week off. So I was like, the WHOLE week? We had no work coming in and he can't exactally pay me to twiddle my thums (aka blog) haha. Long story short, Scott and I decided it would be best for me to just quit and focus on my business full time. I'm thrilled, excited and a bit scared. Full time photographer? Yes please!

So this morning, I went in and was like, I quit bitches!!!! Just kidding. I was far more ruthless than that. Actually I was very pleasant and it went well. So now I'm a free agent. Whooo Hooooo!

So after I quit, packed up my desk and got home, I took a deep breath and got to work finally setting up a business Facebook account. You know what would be awesome? If you'd "like" me.

Don't be shy if you're not a Colorado resident. I travel often and am always looking for new clients in new cities!
