I am a bad blogger...

I am such a bad blogger! I just forget to add new entries, or I don't have anything I feel is worthy of sharing...

But last weekend, I attended a photographers workshop in South Carolina with my friend and business partner, Rebekah. It was a long drive made even longer because of bad weather and accidents along the way. The rain was coming down so hard, and the fog was so thick, that we never even saw Knoxville as we drove right by the downtown area on I-40! It took us NINE hours to get to Columbia, South Carolina. It should have been a 6.25 hour drive, according to Google Maps.

Once we arrived and met the rest of the group for dinner, we enjoyed ourselves. We met some wonderful photographers from Connecticut and Florida (hey, Laurie and Leigh!), and from Johnson City, TN (hi, Wendy!) and from other places I can't remember (hi, girls!). We even met a lovely young woman from Dubai (you're gorgeous, Dana!).
As part of the workshop, we photographed some children at a local farm. Here are a few of the images. It's really hard to get good images of a child when there are 20 photographers crowded around all saying "look over here!"

Tag! I'm it!

I was actually tagged twice--once by Katie, and once by Rebekah. I've just been so swamped I haven't had time to respond.

So, 8 things about me...hmmm...does anyone really want to know? Too late!

  1. I changed my major in college 4 times and never did finish after I got married and had a kid. I regret that I didn't finish, but not enough to go back and do it now, 20 years later.
  2. I was born in Florida, lived in Georgia for a year, and have been in Tennessee since I was 9 years old. Yet, I still don't consider myself a Tennessean.
  3. I have had 22 different addresses and changed elementary schools 6 times. And my father was NOT in the military (the oil business). My parents are retired and still move every couple of years.
  4. I actually don't have much self-confidence--I just fake it. (Really, it's true!)
  5. My husband and I attended high schools in the same county, and knew a lot of the same people, but didn't meet until college in another city.
  6. I have three wedding dresses. One I wore for my first marriage, one I bought when engaged, but we broke up before the wedding. And one I wore to marry my current husband of 14 years.
  7. I have only been to two other countries--the Bahamas and Canada. I would love to travel a lot more!
  8. I would love to do adventurous things, but I am too chicken! I also don't like going without the creature comforts--things like air conditioning and indoor plumbing!
OK, boring enough?

So now I have to tag 4 more photographers...
