So, I rush out the door this morning ready for ... yet another day at work. Tired, didn't sleep well, and sore... from all of my "excruciating" haha workouts that I've been doing at the gym. I'm walking, no... running out to my car (because here lately I've been late to work, oh, everyday) and I'm like wow, its COLD. I have a cardigan on top of another shirt and I'm thinking... its September 24th, and it feels this good? So, I jump in the car, in about a 10% better mood because of the weather. I turn on my car... 61 degrees outside. LOVELY :)
I get to work... and the 10% just goes downhill again. So, I've determined, now matter how much you love your job... its still a job as time goes on. You still have to put in your 9-5 hours, you still have to show up, and be happy that your there. Granted, I love designing and taking photos, but the monotony of a job and the no windows thing here is killin' me. So, if I ever freak out on you when I see sunshine... that's why. For now, I have my little sunflowers sitting my desk as my reminder of the outdoors.
But, the whole thing about college. Can I just say I LOVED those days when we went down to Winthrop Lake and just chilled. Skipped class and just sat on the grass by the water... walked around, and did nothing. Those were the days... fall reminds so much of Winthrop... and as much as I ever complained about being in school and ready to get out; I miss it. I miss it dearly. Yea, money and a paycheck is fantastic, but I'll never get over the 4 1/4 years of my college life :(

So I took a little stroll during work to downtown Greer... only to find that they actually were setting up for a Wing Fling festival. But, I did get a couple cool shots of the plants there. And, also, one of my favorites: iron. I love iron work and I'm so fascinated with it. Enjoy!
So I've recently gotten into designing wedding invites, one of my favorite things to do. I guess, its probably because I'm SOOO ready to design my own. I think i've officially been waiting for 8 years to do so. But anyways, I'm working on getting a website up of all of the freelance I'm available for. One day, I'd like to have my own stationary/card shop that I design wedding invites and basically the whole package - save the dates, response cards, etc. AND, hopefully soon I'll be purchasing (or either a Christmas present, maybe) a Letterpress Machine. I don't really know that I have the room for it in this small apartment, but luckily my little man has a room in his house just for me... for art :) So, if you know of anybody selling a reasonably priced letterpress machine, I'd love to talk to them.

I got the opportunity to photograph at Frazee Dream Center, a place where kids with lots of uncertainty in their life go after school. These kids get to learn manners, behavior, games, and they get tutored. It was such an eye-opener to see how sweet these little kids really where. Check out their site. They've really got a lot going for them there. Frazee Dream Center
