Summer Is Almost Over


Even though a gazillion years has passed since I've been a public school student, I still get the urge to go and buy new clothes, school supplies, get a haircut, an eye exam, teeth cleaning, physical, etc.  It is all so exciting until I realize that it's not me getting on the bus at 7:15 am, but my new middle schooler ~ I'm a bit anxious.  So off we go......  starting the madness of making the appointments and purchasing the items on the list.  A little shopping therapy is good for the soul (and anxiety).  Who says I can't have new school clothes either?!

Within the chaos of it all I was fortunate enough to do a job for the amazing Julie Prudden with Keller Williams Realty Platinum Partners.  If you'd like more information on this gorgeous property located at 461 Riven Rock Place in Lee's Summit, Mo. please contact Julie at the information below.

Back To Work.......Trying Anyway

Vacation is over.  Summer is in full bloom.  I have a cold.  Seriously, what's worse then getting sick in the middle of summer?!  Blowing your nose constantly, walking around with tissue stuck up your nose, sneezing so hard that you knock yourself over or wet your pants ~ all my mommy friends know exactly what I'm talking about, and if you don't you will soon enough!

Thankfully the work on my calendar this week was all real estate related (well, hello old friend) and I was able to hide behind closed doors, in the AC and away from the public, until today when the deal was signed, sealed and delivered.  Now I go through the process of gradually letting go, helping in small ways as they're moving in and then all of a sudden.......they're gone.  It makes me sad.

Up next is a short week of photography and a visit with Grandma.  But for now I must pass along an important technique to my 4 year old little girl.   "Sweetie, it's easier to let the tissue dangle from the nose then to make an actual tissue bullet, like big daddy."  And is one too young to learn to cross her legs when she sneezes?!



Here are more pictures of that crazy, cute baby nephew.

Thank you http://juliegrahamphotography.zenfolio.com for putting up with my ditzy, medicated head last night.

Cheers,

And We're Off........

I guess it's really, truly official now ~ my website and blog are up and running. I've done a lot of work in the last 2.5 years that includes reading, classes, workshops, observing, falling on my face, becoming beyond frustrated, and on occasion creating something so beautiful that I was inspired to keep going.  I think if I'd known exactly how much money I'd spend, the time in front of my computer, and how much ravioli my children would eat, I'm not so sure I'd have taken on this endeavor.  However, my pocket book is bit leaner, my backside a bit wider and my children are as healthy as Chef Boyardee.  I'm very happy to be where I am today and with no regrets.

My photography business will be an entity in itself, always evolving and changing to fit in where I am and what I'm doing.  At this time I'm focused on real estate photography.  I have a heart for realtors and builders, and know all too well how difficult it is right now.  I'm also aware of the ever changing ways to market a home and build your business at the same time.  I am still licensed to sell real estate in Kansas and Missouri.

I'm sure you thought I'd post a photo of an amazing home for my first blog post, didn't you?  Nope, not so.  Meet the newest addition to our family (no, no, silly.....not me and big daddy), and what better way to introduce my new website and blog then with a cute, cuddly little baby?!  This little guy is Tyler Ross Williams, aka, "Ty", aka, "Nephew Extraordinaire".




Thanks for taking the time to read my first post, visiting my website and/or referring some business. :)
