I can't wait!!!
I've worked my 7 days in a row, now I'm off for 7. I am chomping at the bit to get lotsa stuff published to my website. I'm going to bed in a few minutes, after working all night, I don't think I'm up to working on it right now. But after a few hours sleep, I'm going to start working on it. I'm so excited about finally doing this!.....Now, I just need some sleep.....

I feel as if I've done nothing but run for 3 days. Fri was Courtney's wedding. Sat I spent 4 hours shooting an outdoor wedding, then came home to change and head out to meet friends for dinner. Sun, I met friends at the park and did family portraits for them. OMG, it was so hot-hot-hot. I remembered to take a ginormous bottle of water with me on Sat, after passing out the last time I did an outdoor shoot, but didn't take one Sun. I started getting really sick as we were trying to get to Starbucks to get someplace cool and get something to drink. I was shaking all over, had trouble catching my breath and my pacer was going nuts. Thank goodness Steph found an elevator and we rode up to Starbucks. If we'd had to walk the stairs, I probably would have passed out again. That would have been embarrassing! I don't know why I've developed this extreme intolerance to heat. I've lived here my whole life and never had this problem, at least, not to this degree. I hate this!!

I spent about 4 hours in Saluda today shooting a wedding. I've done one for my sister when she got married, and took some shots for my niece yesterday, but this was different......mostly b/c I didn't know these people before today. I had such a great time though. The people were all very nice, just decent, earthy folks, and they all seemed to have a good time. The bride and groom were such a cute couple, but looked so young to me. I hope they'll have a long, happy marriage!

My niece is getting married today . I'm so happy for her, and for him. He's a great guy and has come to be a very well loved member of our family. I just can't believe she's old enough to get married. Wow....where did the time go? I love her so much, more than I could ever say. She 's my heart, my life has been so improved because of her existence. I wish them every joy and happiness. Love you baby, Both of you!

I attended a funeral yesterday. The mom of one of my best friends passed away early Tues morning. She was a sweet lady and, judging by the number of folks present, was obviously well loved. I spent a good part of my youth at her house, hanging with her daughter, Gee (nickname of course). She looked very pretty and at peace. Life wasn't easy for her (& her kids), but they always knew they were loved. It was hard to say goodbye, but good to know she was no longer in pain and in a much better place. They played only one song, and I think it was probably the most beautiful rendition I've ever heard....I'll Fly Away sung by Johnny Cash with only a guitar to accompany him. It was incredible and I've been singing it since.
Goodbye, Ms Long. I always loved being at your house as a kid and you showed me how wonderful having a mom could be (mine passed away when I was 7). No matter how many rules we broke, you always scolded with a slight smile on your face and with a gentle loving hand.
Goodbye, for now-we'll miss you.
