So, I know I've shared a studio pictures two days in a row, but how can I not use something this cute as my photo of the day when it came out of my camera?

Day 46

Technology can be so wonderful at times.  I have been blessed this year by a Bible study I am doing long-distance with my best friend, who lives over 600 miles away.  (Yes, I looked it up).  Even though it would be ideal to be able to hang out in person, it's still a good feeling to be able to study together, pray together, and to share our lives with one another via modern technology.  Today I even learned to use headphones with a built in speaker, and I didn't even have to hold the phone!  :)

Part of my weekday morning ritual is to stop by Sonic and purchase a large Diet Dr Pepper.  It lasts me through the morning.  It costs me $1.07, and so far this year, I'm still using a gift card that I was given for Christmas to pay for them.  (Thanks Travis & Rachel!)

Day 32

One of the benefits to having your own business is setting your own hours.  My studio is closed on Mondays.  Since I work many Saturdays, it's nice to have a little time at the beginning of the week to get organized, do my grocery shopping, etc.  This morning I started off by having an un-rushed breakfast with a friend.  It was so nice to just take the time to sit and visit over a cup of coffee.  It got my week off to a good start!
