summer projects

yay! summer is finally here, and maybe now I'll post more often (are you sure once every month or 2 isn't enough? :)

had some wisdom tooth issues at the end of the school year, so it's taken some time to feel good and feel like I'm on vacation. This is the first summer in quite a while that I have no obligations except those to family, sewing, and home improvement projects.
I did have a rush order that required a bit of a marathon sewing session mid-week, and I missed sleep entirely one night, but after 12 hours of sleep last night I feel refreshed. (gotta do a 12 hour sleep every once in a while- sleep does make us look younger, right?) so no guilty feelings here, I deserve it!
my daughter just graduated from high school - I won't go into all the emotional details of having an 18 year old right now, but I'm looking forward to spending some time with her this summer, before her adult life goes and gets all serious.

We are planning trips to the zoo, mini- golf, late nite runs to walmart- her idea, she loves doing that for some reason- and possibly a trip to the east coast to visit family. (The 2 of us haven't taken a plane trip since she was 4, so it's a bit overdue. I just do not travel by plane very often, not my thing. ) We also are planning some more fashion photo shoots, since the ones we did together last summer turned out so incredible. I used one of her shots for my new business cards. I am the designer/ stylist/ casting call director / location scout/ reflector holder, and she is the photographer. We make a great team, and I think it's great experience for her future career in photography.
here's a picture from my late night sewing marathon for a bride who's getting married TOMORROW in Tennessee! She is having a rustic/ southern barn wedding and wearing cowboy boots:) sounds perfect from one southern girl to another - enjoy your special day sarah!
