I finally got to wear this dress I’ve owned a year, the first time it was worn by my sister for her family shoot I photographed and she rocked it so well. I was a little late heading up to Flagstaff to see the leaves change, the aspen trees were already bare but I still loved the look – light passing through the bare branches and so much light flare – none of these enhanced – legit sun flare done right! Good job Mr. Wonderful.

How’s your season of life going? I’ve been great at un-busying myself but then the work does pile up – which is fun, really! It’s going to be a packed end of 2017 but I’m ready for the challenge and to go out with a bang, this year has been so good. Plus, blogging really slows down in the new year for businesses figuring out budgets and other things, so I’ll take my little rest time then.

Can you believe the holidays are already here? And speaking of, I celebrate another trip around the sun! I always feel like turning whatever age it is can be uneventful because the entire year I already think I’m that age since my birthday is in November. Does anyone else do that? I hate that I do that, it’s like I never enjoy the age I actually am and I forget but then again maybe it’s easier to turn the age since in my head I’ve already been it for the past 11 months haha.

No matter what, I’m tired of saying, “I so old,” because I’m not. I might be the oldest I’ve ever been but I know I’m not old. Remember when we were little, even through college we always looked forward to birthdays? They were milestones, all the way to 21! I think the reason we start to freak out about the birthdays after or feel old is because we put pressure on ourselves to be in a certain place in our lives by that age.

Speaking from the short experience I have of getting older I’ll say this – it just measures time. There are 50 years olds who seem younger than 30 year olds, it’s a state of mind and take it easy on yourself, what a marvelous thing it is, to live and grow old with our friends and family.

Trying to decide what to write to make myself sound interesting.

    Mr. wonderful is getting better and better at taking photos! He has a really good teacher :-) in fact, he could probably quit his day job.

      His patience and direction is pretty amazing behind the camera, especially since he used to have a -2 interest in photography 6 years ago haha!!

    These pictures are stunning! Good job Benjamin! Of course it helps that you’re a model.
    Maybe it’s something to do with November birthdays because Michael does that too. He’s been saying he’s 37 all year! Actually he’s been saying he’s almost 40 since we got married *eye roll* so silly!

      Thanks doll ;) It might help but it can also be annoying I’m sure haha. Ugh, it’s like I never remember the actual year I was, I’m always planning ahead. Bummer!!! I need to just stay where I am, my friend scolded me for that but I can’t help it. I would never round up to the next decade, but for men it’s probably different.
