Where did the time go?

Filed under: News,Personal,Photography — chantal @ 1:04 am

I can’t believe Christmas is just five days away! Where did 2007 go? Time really flies, and the past several weeks have been a whirlwind for me.

Wednesday was my kids’ last day of school before Winter break. I’m really looking forward to spending time with them, sleeping in, baking cookies, watching movies while we all pile on the couch snuggled under blankets. My mom always jokes about how cuddly my family is….we’re always under a blanket!

Here’s a shot of my kids I took last Wednesday. Cherie had just lost her first tooth!

Aside from the large amounts of quality family time I plan on having, I do have some other things I plan to accomplish. I’m going to put together a sample book from my 2007 photo shoots. I’m really excited about that…kind of like a yearbook for my first year in business (first 6 months actually). I also have some biz-related work to finish up…to be ready for the 2008 Wedding season. I’m so excited for next year, I have some really awesome Weddings already booked and I’m looking forward to booking more in the next few months!

I also have a few things I plan to blog within the next week. I can’t wait to share some more of the photos I took at the Westerville Holiday Spectacular. And I also plan on posting some of my favorite photos from the past year that never made it to either this blog, or my Photoblog.

In other news…

The Free Wedding Photography contest is going well. I can’t express in words how amazed I am at the amount of votes that have come in so far. There have been over 2,000 votes in the past 24 hours alone! So since I’ve received several requests for an update, here is where it stands as of 1:00am:

Cupcakes 80%
Brownies 18%
Cookies 3%

(I realize that equals 101, but that’s what the poll results say….we’re talking percentages here.)

Anyway, obviously there’s still quite an enormous gap between the couples, but remember, we still have 11 days left of voting. ANYTHING can happen.

🙂

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
UPDATE 1:50pm, Thursday:

Cupcakes     90.59%
Brownies        8.31%
Cookies              1.1%

Unbelievable!!   There were almost 3,000 votes so far today already.  Honestly, when this contest started, I didn’t even think we’d get 3,000 votes during the entire voting period!  This is really exciting!!

  4. I’ll second that. Your kids are adorable.
    Chantal, I would also like to say thanks for offering your services and having this contest. I’m so excited. Whether my daughter wins or not we just may have to hire you anyway! 🙂 I have so many wonderful friends who’ve participated that hopefully this gets you some exposure too!
    Enjoying the contest!
