Okay, little blog of mine….I am going to try to be more committed to you, even if you are the only one who sees this. I was chatting with a friend not too long ago about blogging and she encouraged me to get going with this a little bit more. I told her, but I don’t always have that much to say about photography and what I’ve been up to. She said that’s okay! Just blog about you and what YOU are up to…so that’s what I’m going to do! 🙂 Some of it will be about photography, but mostly…it will just be about me and my life as there is so much more to it than just photography. Plus, I figured…if anyone is going to read this…it will give them a little better insight to ME! Maybe we’ll have something in common, maybe I’ll make someone laugh…or cry 😦 , or we’ll just become blog friends. In any case…I look forward to sharing with you. I figure, I’m on this computer enough in the evening…I can find a couple of minutes to jot in a blog!
What you may not know, is that I am a full time teacher. I teach math at the Job Corps in St. Paul and have been there about 4+ years. I really enjoy my job, finding it challenging and rewarding and have made some pretty good friends in my co-workers. I also have a husband of just over a year and 3 step kids…none of my own. Between the 5 of us…life stays pretty busy. After work when at home…I like to play with our dogs…Ozzy and Hitch, as well as garden. I also spend time at the barn where our two horses are boarded. Cowboy is my 11 year old paint that I’ve had since he was 7 months old and Munchkin…we got recently. He’s a 14 year old paint pony who I used to have at camp with me for many years where I ran the riding program in Minocqua, WI (Clearwater Camp!). I also give lessons out there and have a horse I’m working for another boarder. Aside from all of that…I try to keep my photography business moving and growing. It’s not as busy as I’d like it to be…someday I’d be thrilled if it took over as my full time job, but we’re not there yet. Oh, also….my husband and I like to ride his Harley…we just got back from a fun trip to northern MN with about 30 bikes total. We also snowmobile, fish, cheer for the Packers (well, he cheers for the Vikings…blaghhhhh), support the Wild, spend time at his parents lake cabin about an hour from here and our cabin in northern MN.
So…life is good, life is busy…this is just a start. Maybe I’ve already said too much….but at this point, I think I’m the only one seeing this! So, anything goes! LOL
Have a good night…I’m off to bed!!
