So one reason why I’ve been so quiet lately is that Jamie and I have been planning a big Silent Sundays vintage hunting trip/shoot, and we’ve been getting stuff ready for it. I’ve also been a little bit sick, and also we’ve had some things happen that I won’t get into here. It was a good/bad weekend. I did get to see my sister Ashley and her husband Danny and my nephew and niece really quickly on Saturday, so that was definitely a highlight. Also today Drew took me to the doctor and I got the staples taken out of my arm, and honestly those things poking into my skin was hurting more than anything else, so there’s a relief.
Right now I’m excited to leave tomorrow for our trip. Jamie and I are hitting up a ton of thrift/antique stores in 4 different states, two of them which will be completely new to me. We’ll be staying with her parents on the Mississippi coast and might even go to New Orleans for a quick little trip. It’s supposed to rain all week but we’ve got our fingers crossed it will clear up a tiny bit on Thursday for a shoot we have planned with a model I’m extra excited to work with.
It will definitely be a whirlwind trip, but hopefully we’ll get the chance to take a bunch of pictures along the way!
PS: We’re in Mississippi now! I’m updating the Silent Sundays blog each day with some photos from our trip, but I’m sure I’ll be writing about it here too.
