Portland, Maine Photographer :: I miss…

Day 12- What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life…)

I’ve said this to Steven so many times over the past six months, but for some reason that has been buried deeply in my subconscious, I really miss living in Skowhegan.

There was just something so exciting and peaceful about what it meant at that point in my life. It was when me and Steven started to live together, when we got married, when I finished my final year of college, and when Steven decided to go back to school. It represented a time where there seemed to be so much balance in my life, and my friends were so much closer to me. I miss being in college. If I were still in college, my summer vacation would’ve started just a couple of days ago.

But alas, I am a big girl now.

I still have five weeks until summer break. But it’ll fly by.

I miss being able to go to Hannaford, and then walk over to Wal-Mart if something was cheaper. They were in the same parking lot, after all. I miss practicing my slacklining there. I also miss having quiet neighbors. I miss knowing exactly where I’m going all the time.

That was just such an awesome time in my life.

Right now is also an awesome time in my life 🙂 Just a different kind of awesome.

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!
