Blog Love: the best of blogging and business this week

Sarah_112314-15

First up, can I gush over how pretty Vanessa made my feel with these pictures?? I've never gotten non-circus headshots before and it was so easy and fun shooting with her. I'm super glad she's starting to expand her big into photography and used me as a test model. Now I just have to decide which photo to use as my avatar! In addition to staring at photos of myself, I spent the majority of this week working on something awesome for all of you. It was going to be a quickie digital download and then I kept writing and writing and it got bigger and READ MORE >>>

I have no idea where this week went! I think I spent most of it training and then on the couch recovering from aerial classes, watching RHONY, and stuffing my face to generate energy for the next class.

I've always been someone who has known where they are going, who has thrived on feeling purposeful and setting goals. I've worked almost non-stop (happily) for the past few years, but for the next two months, I won't have any raging deadlines or an overflowing inbox to keep me on track. And that is making me really fucking uncomfortable. Right READ MORE >>>
