I guess it’s not so much where I’ve gone, as where I’m going to. After months and months of trying to come up with the right remodel plan for our house to give me more space to shoot, a house just 5 houses down from us was going up for sale. We jumped on it before it hit the market, and have been in a whirlwind of real estate transactions ever since. We are so excited for the new space… much bigger kitchen and a whole room dedicated to be my studio… all without leaving our neighbors who we couldn’t imagine leaving. It really couldn’t be better.
With one tiny problem. I have been queen of bargain prop shopping over the last year or so. Today, I’ve already packed 8 large boxes with my props, and I don’t think I’m even half way done yet. None of the boxes are liftable anymore (at least not by me). The only thing keeping me going is the beer and ice cream that are clear requirements of any large moving job. That and the fact that I HAVE to be done with the kitchen by tomorrow night, as the floor-sander-dude is coming to the house this week to redo the floors.
If I end up with an hour or two free at some point this week, I have some great posts that just need to get written up! Otherwise, see you in the new house!
PS: Our existing house will be on the market in early September. It’s got great light for anyone just getting started in food photography!!! Tell your friends! Plus, trust me, I can’t think of a nicer block to live on in Seattle if you like to hang with your neighbors.
