Happy Caturday!

I know it’s been a while; update coming later today (fingers crossed)! In the meantime, hope you enjoyed the cuteness. 🙂

Shots from Monaco

I drove down to Monaco with a friend recently and I got to grab a few pictures while we were down there. Sadly, it was a little overcast so the light wasn’t great, but I think these turned out okay:

Have a few of Lucy playing with string:

And this is why you should never try to make your bed with the cat in the room:

“Move? But I’m comfy here.”

Happy Friday, everyone! 🙂

Back in August, I did a little shoot with Blue, partly for fun and partly in hopes of getting some pictures I could submit to a photo contest (which I did enter, but sadly did not win). The result was nearly 200 pictures, and it was hard narrowing it down to just four. This horse is ridiculously photogenic.

I did a few fairly traditional portrait shots:DSC_0383cs

“Neener!”

And some “artsy” shots:

That last one is my favorite.

Meowy Christmas!

Twilight and Lucy hope your Christmas was purr-fect!

“Why yes, I am actually comfortable like this.”

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas, and may you all be very, very blessed this coming year! 🙂

Employment. I Has It.

I mentioned in my previous post that I had a new job. However, unlike the various temp/seasonal jobs I’ve been working for the past 5 years, this one is decidedly more long-term.

It started innocuously enough: I got a call from the temp agency asking if I was available to work at one of the local artisan nougat places the following week. Not having worked since before my trip to the States, I said yes. The first week went smoothly and they asked me to come back the next week, and then the next. At the end of the third week, the boss called me into his office and said, “I have a proposition for you.” He went on to explain that one of the employees was taking a parental leave on top of her maternity leave, and asked if I was interested in replacing her during that time. My reaction: “Um, wow.”

Funny how we’re always asking God for stuff and then get all surprised when He delivers. 😉

Anyway, as of mid-September I am officially an employee and will be staying for the next two years. After that? Who knows. In the meantime, it’s nice to finally have some real financial stability.

Also, just to show that God doesn’t do things halfway, my hours are such that I can still go to the barn and ride 2-3 times a week. Add to that the fact that everyone is super friendly and the place is overall pretty quiet, and this is basically the perfect job. Not to mention the nougat is really good. 😉

Playing Catch-Up, Part 1

Hello everyone!

I meant to post this much sooner, but between my new job and recent events, it kind of got pushed down the priority list (okay, and I’ve been procrastinating too).

Anyhow, December (and therefore winter) may be upon us, but these pics from June should warm you right up. They’re from the barn’s end-of-the-year show, which was a ton of fun and featured some pretty awesome costumes:
