Off Season: The End

I think it's time to call it: off season is officially over. This week I have a bridal show, an anniversary session, and a wedding. And next week is just as busy. (Speaking of the bridal show, check out the gorgeousness above from People's Choice Winner Emily Weddings. Much more of the beautiful Crystal Clear Event to come!)

I'm really excited for wedding season to be gearing up, but it's a little sad to see the off season come to an end. As expected, I still have more things on my list that haven't been marked off. But all the important tasks got accomplished and I'm excited for what's to come in the next few months. I only have one date available in May and June!

So this morning while I drink some tea and put a hot pack on my shoulder, I thought I'd write a few little notes to the off season.

Dear Two Hour Coffee Dates, I really hope you're not a thing of the past because I always feel so encouraged and inspired, but I know it sure will be more difficult to squeeze you in when there is a looong list of work to be done!

Dear Light-stand, Thank you for the painful reminder of how heavy you are. I will be sure to take good care of my shoulder this week and I will always choose valet parking when it is an option. No more lugging you around the Oceanfront.

Dear Yoga, If my shoulder is any indication, I'm going to need you to step up your game if we're going to make it through the wedding season in one solid non-achy piece.

Dear Office, I know your decor and organization was on my off season to do list. I apologize that your closet is still a jumbled, unpainted mess. But you have pretty new canvases. You can't argue with that.

Dear Google +, You were that item on my to do list that I glared at every time I saw you. I have enough on my plate balancing a blog and two social media platforms. I had no interest in trying to manage a third, but I had heard so many great things about you. Needless to say, I was really happy to see that you're being phased out. I've never been so happy to cross off something I haven't actually done.

Dear Christmas Break, I am so proud of myself for taking a solid 2 weeks off for Christmas and New Year's. I really wasn't sure that was possible. I look forward to seeing you again next year.

Dear Online Client Questionnaires, You're my new best friend.

Dear Quickbooks, I'm still a little confused by you, but I'm very happy to have you at the party.

Dear Off Season, Have a great summer. And stay in touch! (Insert other stereotypical yearbook quote here.)
