Half Way There! {25 & 26}

"Saltwater Dreams"

Yay! I'm back! Did you miss me? I missed you guys! It was really hard not creating anything for so long, but the house is almost done and ready to put on the market. The only thing left to do is install the new floors, which will happen this week. And I have exciting news! We found our dream home! We have gone into contract for a new construction home and will hopefully be moved in by Christmas. Which gives us plenty of time to sell our current home. I'm so excited! I just can't wait. We'll probably have to move twice before the year is over, but this will be our forever home, so no more moving after this! Not sure where we'll live in between homes...I guess we're gong to be homeless for a little while. lol

I actually have TWO images to share with you this week, which puts me back on schedule and half way through this project. Whoo hoo! The first one is called "Saltwater Dreams" which symbolizes rising above a sea of doubt to reach for your dreams. When I last left off, I was swimming in doubt. Feeling a little burnt out, I was at a lose for ideas and began doubting my ability to complete this project. Apparently a break is just what I needed because I have had a flood of new ideas this week! To get this shot, Henry and I got up at 5 a.m. on July 4th and went out to the beach. We had so much fun jumping the waves and splashing around. It was by far the most fun I've had shooting a project.

The second one is called "The Queen" and was a randomly inspired image. A couple of days ago, a queen bee (or wasp? I'm not sure) got stuck on our screened porch. We tried to shoo her off, but she wouldn't leave. I've had to rescue many creatures from being trapped on our porch like dragonflies, lizards, frogs....even a bird once. But I wasn't about to pick her up and carry her off the porch. She was HUGE!! And a little scary with that giant stinger. So I kept my distance and hoped she'd find her way off our porch, but unfortunately she didn't and eventually died. This isn't the type of image I normally create, but I was inspired by her and it's not often that you come across something like this, so I couldn't waste the opportunity. This is probably the creepiest image that I've created, but I actually think it's quite beautiful in a way.

I've already started on the next project and I'll be sharing that with you next week. As always, thank you for following my little adventures. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
