Ok, I never said I was good at this blogging thing. However, I have been busy. We are stilling trying to sell the old house, and we've been making this place home as well. I've done some portraits, event coverage, and personal projects. I even created, submitted, and got accepted to display a piece at a local gallery event.
I have been building on new friendships and experiencing new things. I even have a side hobby to my photography hobby now. I've been collecting vintage slides from consignment shops and scanning them. One of the most interesting one is a set from the early to mid 70s on the USS Okinawa. I found someone that was photographed because his name was printed on the slide. I contacted him and sent him the box of slides after I scanned what I wanted.
Our house finally feels like home. For the first several weeks I felt like a guest that was very comfortable going through drawers and closets. We can't wait to get our old house sold so that we can afford to continue making the new house our own. We have trees to remove and we want to add a privacy fence. There's an "Amber's Corner" waiting to be established in the back yard. We have images of a fire pit, Edison lights, and seating in our heads for this area. We want an outdoor retreat to entertain guests and to enjoy as a family.
Well, that's about it with me. I hope everyone is well.
