Weekend Recap

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! Even though I had the weekend “off”, I spent 20+ hours redecorating/reorganizing my office space.  The great news? I found new chairs!!! Wohoo! Thank you all for your suggestions because it turned out GREAT! I cannot reveal my new space quiteeeeee yet as I still have a couple more key details on my list that I need to accomplish before debuting it. 🙂 I’m SIKED to share the work I put into this space because I finally feel like my branding is coming together!!! If you were to see my winter to do list right now, you would think I’m CRAZY! Maybe I am but I have a vision for where I want my business to go and this is the time I am going to make things happen before the crazy spring wedding season arrives. 🙂 Today, I don’t have any weddings or portraits to showcase for this week … feels like the FIRST! I do have posts lined up for this week to keep it interesting and I’m hoping to debut either my new office space and/or my parents bedroom on the blog! Yay!

Here’s a sneak peek of my office space! 🙂 More to come soon on the blog once I have the other details put together!
