silly …aka ‘my week’ [13/52]

What’s silly is the way time is flying lately and I just can’t seem to catch up to myself.

This week, I’ve been busy editing photos (for forever it seems!) from last weekend’s fundraiser. Here’s a little (non-identifying .. heh) peek from over 300 photos …


It was a day of curling, followed by a dinner and dance, all in the name of helping out a local family recovering from horrific tragedy.

I took a LOT of photos :)


In between all of that, I’ve been working on new logos …

and websites …

And earlier in the week, I came home to find some love in the mail from my girl, Lori at Whimsy Studios

How silly cute is that?! Even the envelope is adorable!  THANK YOU LORI!!! :)
As soon as I get my hands on a cute frame, this will have a place of honor by my desk.

And I topped off the end of the week with a visit to my new stylist, telling her to “do what you want” with some sort of new hair color. The dingy dark blonde I was sporting felt so blah and flat to me. I wanted some fun.

What do you think? (kindly ignore the tired, baggy eyes – she couldn’t do anything about that)

There was a time in my life where you’d never in a million years catch me uttering the phrase “do what you want” when it came to my hair. No way. That would be silly ;)

It was quite liberating.

and now? please excuse me whilst I get back to work.

No rest for the wicked, y’know.

    First I love your new highlights – they really suit you. I have so much fun taking the photos then I get home and look at how many I have and often become overwhelmed. Like with Canada Bloom – oh dear 300 something that day!

      ugh, I know, right?
      I usually keep it to the must haves, but there was just so much going on all day and night. I started shooting at around 10am and finished at around 9pm.

    Love the multi-level hair color and do I detect a hint of red in there that brings out your lovely eyes? In other news, we still have a fair amount of snow on the ground and last year around the same date, we were having a freaky heat wave, 25 Celcius and there was not a spot of snow left! We can’t even take the winter garage down yet as it is stuck in ice and snow!

      Absolutely love it! Thank you!
      I had sent you an email and wrote on your FB wall when I received it, but I wasn’t sure if you’d gotten either of those since you usually respond pretty quickly :)
      THANKS LORI!!! :)

    I love the highlights and really, really love the cut. I’m ready to tell my stylist ‘do what you want’ with the cut. Sounds like you had a busy week – I’m glad you had time for a little fun (even if it had a purpose!)

      Yeah, you have to be ready for it, for sure.
      When you get to that point when you think it just could NOT look any worse, that’s when you do it ;)
      (and still cross your fingers … LOL)

    My husband loves curling. He sits for hours when it’s on, especially during the Olympics. Your hair looks great and makes me wish I didn’t cut mine off!

      hmmm … I don’t know about brave.
      Crazy comes to mind, though ;)
