Free Friday

Today didn't start out so great for me. I was tired, had to get up early and had way too much on my mind. I have also been feeling a bit discouraged and frustrated here lately with some business things.

Today has gotten better for me. I delivered a print order to a mother of the bride and it totally made my day. Good reminder of why I love what I do. She was still gushing over the images and how beautiful she thought they were.

On the way home, while stuck in traffic my sister called to remind me that today was "E" day at Delish. Well, I was at the 6th street exit so it made sense to stop and pick up my free cupcake today and get out of traffic. I have been wanting to try one of Delish's cupcakes for a while now. Following them on Twitter doesn't help my cravings either!

Um, wow. Love me some cupcake. They truly are 'delish'!

Did I mention I also got a free Spicy Chicken Sandwich from Chick-fil-a? Yeah, free Friday.

It's not just free stuff that has made my day better. It's being here at this desk, in my home, doing what I love. I realize that even if we make mistakes with our business, get frustrated or discouraged or fed up - it's ok. It's our business. We start over, try again and push through.

We've been riding a high this week with the new site and blog launch, an amazing session on Tuesday morning and the Weddings Unveiled show on Wednesday. I definitely don't want to loose that feeling of excitement - ever - that I have when it comes to our business. It's a feeling that anything is possible.

Happy weekend!


  1. YAY! I've been meaning to stop by Delish too. I missed when they were having free days for "A" names. But I do have a living social deal from them I can't wait to use. Mmmmmm.

  3. These photos are great! It's an ode to the perfect little dessert.

    I am glad your Friday ended well and that you are learning the ropes of being your own boss. Have fun!

  4. I want a free cupcake! :( When is J day? LOVE the new site.

  5. What a great treat to end the week on. I think cupcakes always make the day go better. Glad you day ended on a better note.

  6. We all have bad days now and then and having a business is a big challenge. Overcoming the challenges is both exhiliarating and worthwhile. You both do such beautiful work that I am sure everything will balance out. The new site looks great! God bless you and all you do....oh, and how do I find out when "M" day will come around?

  7. Thanks for your encouraging words Mary! I follow Delish on Twitter, that's when they announce the letter of the day. :)

  8. I'll let you know when J day rolls around. They announce it on Twitter. :)


Leave a little love...
