This week has been pretty uneventful compared to our norm. After Bill took the CPP exam on Monday, we stayed an extra day in Fredericksburg TX (woo-hoo!) then drove home on Tuesday. Anyone who knows us is probably aware that we travel so much we rarely take an extra day anywhere – we just want to get home. Needless to say we had a great day, even if Bill had to spend half the day on the phone.
Having grown up in Alberta and just a few hours from the Rocky Mountains, it has taken me a while to notice how pretty the Hill Country in Texas is. The drive home was beautiful – I enjoyed the view while Bill talked on the phone. I am starting to believe that the sky really is bigger in Texas 🙂
Anyone who has worked with us knows that I like to compartmentalize my work to some extent. It can be very difficult to go from shooting a wedding one week to a 3 week location job the next, then back for 1 wedding, then back to corporate work. I used to book anything at anytime until I realized I was driving myself crazy. A few years ago I decided to regain control of our lives and block certain months for specific types of work. It has worked well and we have regained some sense of normalcy in our lives – we have actually had 4 weekends off so far this year! I guess my point with this is that opening October 2008 up to anything is going back to the way I used to take bookings, but I am feeling a little nostalgic this week so I think it should be fun and interesting to see what happens!
