Back in the Saddle

Mike & Caitlin - Wedding DayHey… hi… hello. It’s me again. With all of the best intentions in the world to maintain this blog and post on a regular basis this year, once again, that glorious, beautiful, amazing thing we call “life” pulled me out of the saddle for a while. What was it that could cause me to abandon my fans, friends, and followers, you ask? Well, I got married… that’s what. So who feels like a meanie now… hmmmm?

That’s right… the reason I’ve been radio silent for the past few months was due to the constraints of my schedule, which went a little like this: wake up, do wedding stuff, eat breakfast, go to work, do some more wedding stuff, get off work, do some wedding stuff, head home, eat dinner, do some wedding stuff, stare at the computer screen waiting for motivation to write a blog post, probably have to answer a wedding email or question or five, then stumble into bed and do it all over again.

But, the payoff was definitely worth it in the end. The girl and I tied the knot on October 5th at what Vanity Fair magazine would call “the event of the season” (if they ever visited Peoria, Illinois) and then we headed south of the border to beautiful Cancun for a 10 day honeymoon at one of the most gorgeous resorts I’ve ever seen.

A Much Needed Reboot


Being down there where the hardest decision each day was whether or not to sit next to the pool or the ocean, I was able to do something I haven’t done in a very long time… turn off. Turn off what, you ask? Everything! My brain, my stress, my worries… thoughts of finances and plans and tasks and lists… just off. Simply off.

Like resetting your computer when the fan is running too hot, this “off” period gave me a much needed reboot and I’ve decided to get back in the saddle with regards to my photography. It doesn’t hurt that my schedule has opened back up as well without all of the wedding planning going on.

The first order of business is to get caught up a bit here on the blog. I’m going to be spending the next week or so doing some spring cleaning of portfolios, writing posts, and uploading some new wallpapers, seeing as I missed, you know… every month since July. Whoops!

So, if you can bear with me, dear friends and followers, for just a little while longer, I promise a plethora (that’s a great Scrabble word, ain’t it?) of fun blog posts and images. Until then…
