Some people have been writing very sweet, overly-generous comments here about my pictures. You all have no idea what that means to me. I feel so insecure about photography, honestly. I look on Flickr and I cruise through all the 'Most Interesting' pictures and I feel small. I hope some day I can take pictures like that...
I've got a new obsession lately. Ever since that evil personal trainer got ahold of me, I've been a little insane about working out. Especially running though. I never ever thought I'd be a runner again. I haven't done it since college on the forest trails in Flagstaff.
I hadn't missed a day of working out since last Wednesday, so I figured I needed a day off today. So I splurged and went shopping, which I never do, and bought 2 purses, a hat for the beach, and a new wallet. Then home to pack. First dinner though. Then I started to feel uber guilty for not having worked out. So I collared the dogs, and took off running. On a full stomach. I need a vacation from working out. Seriously, I think I've gone a little overboard.
In other news, I completed my last photo class assignment. The theme was View Your World. It was two parts: people in your world and places in your world. I submitted some of the fire pictures I took of the guys working. I also took pictures of my mom, who is so gorgeous. I couldn't take a bad picture of her.
That's her dog Shadow with her. Anyway, I wish I got more of her features. Beautiful.
I'm a little rambly today. I'm just having a hard time focusing my brain on any one thing.
Oh, and Ryan is STILL sick if you can believe it. He's got things growing in his throat, and today he still had a fever. Its been almost a week. Poor guy! Sure hope he kicks it before we have to fly this weekend...
OK, if I'm a good blogger, I'll write once more before we leave, but you never know...
I'm Amanda. I'm an engineer in an industry full of men, a professional wedding and family portrait photographer, a firefighter's wife, a traveler, and a dogMa.
