    Labels. No matter how much we want to shy away from them, it’s a way of life. Collectively, they help us define who we are and separately, they each contain a snippet of a facet of our lives and personalities.

    When I first started my photography business, my logo was hanssie trainor: photography. Even back then I knew I could not be contained under one label, hence the colon. (The colon is used before a list or an explanation that is preceded by a clause that can stand by itself) and I knew that photography was just one thing that defined who I was. And now after 3+ years in the business, I’ve evolved and come full circle, back to using the colon to help define who I am – a multi faceted, ever changing person, that wears many hats and has many life experiences.

    This blog has always been about my life but with a focus on my photography, but now, there will be a shift to focus more on my journey in the "IN BETWEEN" from my former life as a wife and mother to life as a single gal and single mom living life passionately under my own terms with photography thrown in as well. I'm just a girl trying to figure things out and deal with baggage and confusion in the dating world. I'm putting it all out there --the good, the bad and the ugly. I hope you’ll join me for the ride.

    I'm kissing a lot of frogs..and blogging about it.

    (P.S. Yes, I am still commissioning for fashion/editorial work and for weddings/ portraits)

I Really Do Feel Like a Single Mom…

…but the good news is, I put a deposit down on an apartment yesterday! Wahoo! It’s the size of a postage stamp but it has an ocean view and is literally a block from the beach.

The rest of the day was spent running around getting an oil change, looking at houses/apartments, homeschooling, going to the bank, getting cashier’s checks, signing papers,  looking for a babysitter AND a dog sitter, writing three articles, other work related stuff, getting a Christmas craft, looking for a winter coat and dragging a sick child with me to do all this.

And I realized in the midst of it all that **THIS** is what a single mom feels like.

But…I found an apartment. And so I will focus on that. And eat a lot of chocolate and try to avoid the two bottles of wine on my counter.


The Dog Ate My Blog Post…

So, yeah, I totally missed posting yesterday. Between the new job and house hunting, it’s been ridiculously crazy. I’ve been waking up at the ungodly hour of 7am and it’s been go, go, go until 2am (Sunday night). Yes, my life has been like this before, but this time there is a big difference.

I LOVE what I am doing. I am excited to get up each day and put in a 15 hour day. It’s exciting to love your job and I do.

Now, house hunting… I just want to stick up my middle finger at finding a perfect house to rent, in the perfect location, on a budget, that a large dog.

So, I didn’t actually forget to post a blog yesterday. I just didn’t have anything else in me to do anything except fall into bed and sleep at the end of the day.

So, for now, you’ll have to accept the excuse that the dog ate my blog post.
