A Week in Review: Shutdown


This week has been a little strange. As some of you may not know- I work full-time for the government aside from my photography moonlighting;)But this week, I got a taste of what it would be to be a full-time photographer, because…as you do know- the government was SHUTDOWN! Aka: no full-time govy job for me!

All political opinions aside- it was definitely an adjustment to live life for a week without a 9-5. I have become SO used to having my job occupy my days, that it was so different to have those hours free…

I used a lot of those hours to focus a ton on this passion of mine (photography)- but I also was able to use some of this newfound freedom to have some adventures of my own…and it was a huge blessing. Above is a look at my shutdown week in review as seen through instagram:)

Some highlights:

– Spending a little bit of time with my sweet niece. It’s amazing to me how much she changes each week, and how I love her more each day!

– Having time to take advantage of a gym membership!

– Exploring Sugarloaf Mountain area with Joey:)

– Exhausting the red box supply. Seriously, I think we have watched almost every movie that is worth watching in that big red contraption.

– My amazing friend Jen’s bridal shower! Cutest DIY mustache shower. I can’t wait to share it with you guys this week!

– mmm Apple Crisp and other baking goodness (it’s dangerous being unemployed: you eat more)

– Watching the sunset with Joey at the Montgomery County Airpark: This is one of my new favorite spots!

AND it looks like I may have another full week without a 9-5 filling my days…More adventure awaits!

Happy Monday, friends!
