last night

last night i had an interview for a nanny position over in midland. the family was so sweet and they had the cutest kids! the interview went pretty great, but they were looking for someone that would be around for the next 3+ years, and that was not in my plans, so the meeting ended sooner than planned.

for those of you that are just getting to know me, i plan on moving out of michigan this summer. i am going to be moving to one of the united states biggier cities, but i am not sure which one exactly yet. i will find out more in the next few months.

after the interview, steve and i went to barnes and noble. we sat around for a couple of hours. i was caught up in a few interior design books and he read some books about zen and buddhism. beside the fact that the interview didn't turn out as planned, i still had a great night!

have a cozy sunday afternoon!

the last few days in michigan have been pretty sunny and it feels sort of like spring outside. i am really loving it...makes me feel a lot more motivated than usual.

  i've been enjoying listening to sigur ros lately; i love them! what bands have you been listening to?

i booked a good handful of photo shoots for this month! i'm excited to do more work with my modeling photography. i am not really sure the direction i want to take with my modeling photography exactly and how serious i want to get into it, but i think the more i work with photographing models...i'll figure out if it is something i'm more passionate about versus senior portraits. i feel in ways they kind of work together for me, though. the better i get at mastering a modeling headshot...the more skill i have for making a basic senior headshot look amazing! thus...i get booked more! i have a photo shoot tomorrow; i am excited! if anyone ever wants to check out any of my work my link is:

tonight steve and i have having dinner at our friends, alyssa and doug's, apartment! i am excited! i love when we all cook meals for each other.

it is snowing ever so slightly right now; i think it is beautiful.
