Empty Shell

I thought about you today. It's been a while since you've randomly popped up in my brain, but I know you're always there. I still love you, and miss you more than you could ever possibly know. Life is busy, which is nice because it piles stress and to-do lists in my mind, which pile on top of the thought of you and the pain that I get in my heart.

I remember how we used to be. I would just forget to breath around you. I was too busy to breath. I wanted every second with you to last forever, and I was afraid that if I let even one breath out, the moment would slip away. And you know what, it did, way too quickly.

I have been so blessed in my life to have so many people come in and out of my life, for whatever amount of time, and have each person mean so much to me. Even though they all meant so much to me, they all meant something different. I learned something from each one of those people, and there is a special place in my heart for them all.

Your place, I keep sacred. Hidden. I don't like to go to that place as much as I used to, because now that place seems empty without you. I feel like my soul was left behind, to follow you because it felt lost without you.

I've found my way in life without you, but it just doesn't feel the same. I have survived without you, like I knew I would, but it's not the same. I feel like an empty shell of of the person I used to be, walking around in a broken body. I know that this is the way it has to be, but I wish it could go back to the way it was.

I just wanted you to know that I thought about you. I still do. I always will.

Stuck in a Rut

Happy April! Boy things have been busy lately! It's funny how much your life changes after marriage. It's like there is a part of you before you were married to ENSURE you had time to blog/plan/buy. After it's like that part slows down an awful lot and gets replaced with other stuff like photography/new job/travel. lol At least it did for me. Not that blogging isn't important, because to me it means so much and does so much for me. It lets me express myself when I might not have anyone to listen. Even if no one reads my post, I still feel so good to get the thought out.

I feel like I've been stuck in a rut creatively. Like I have no ideas to do creative shoots, and I almost don't want to? It's a weird feeling and I don't really like it so I hope that changes. Photography is such a passion, and regardless of my own creativity for personal projects, my clients always inspire me. :) 

April is going to be a busy month. We have our upcoming trip to Mexico (aka honeymoon 5 months later) with my bff Becky (and helping her as a second shooter for a super awesome destination wedding). I have a lot of cleaning to do around the house. Spring cleaning to be exact. I've been neglecting my house, so I feel bad. Now I need to cleanse and purge, so I'm excited to get it all taken care of. I have 4 days off for Easter from work, so that is what I plan on doing.

J's birthday is on the 10th, so we'll be in Mexico celebrating, which is nice! I can't wait. Only a few more days and we can have a nice vacation from this cold weather we've been having in Alberta. And it will be nice to get away from the giant ball of stress that's been following me around, targeting my back.

For this weekend, I have so editing to do. I have to get rid of our old van that's been sitting in our parking spot since it died almost a year ago... lol. I have to get my hair done. That's one thing I hate about having red hair... it fades so quickly! It's been 6 weeks since I got it done, and next time I'm making my appointment for 4 weeks not 6. It looks horrid right now. And then we're going to go look at puppies. I wanted to get J a dog for his birthday since he's wanted one for a while now. Oh and we're going to look for a new place to live too, so that's exciting!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
