The last few weeks have been kind of insane – new house, family in town, house guests, starting our giant renovation, a chest cold I haven’t been able to shake for a month, elopements, portrait shoots, and editing. Oh the editing. July was supposed to be my quiet month – and in terms of weddings, compared to June, it was. But a lot of life happened this month, and today I feel like I’m fighting so hard to catch up, but I keep getting pulled back under again. I’m just… overwhelmed. And exhausted. I’ve had one of those mornings where I look around and wonder – “Why did I think it would be a good idea to run my own business again?” These thoughts are, of course, fleeting. As is the exhaustion, I know. But that’s hard to remember when you’re deep in the trenches of wedding season sometimes.
We’re about halfway through wedding season now, so today I am reminding myself – and you – to just keep breathing. I think I see the light way down at the end of the tunnel somewhere.
