Spending the day laying low... I don’t know if it’s the cloudy, gloomy weather, the dust I stirred up while cleaning my closet yesterday (🙈), or something else, but I woke up feeling all kinds of run down this morning. Trying my best to honor my body’s request for rest, even if that means a low-key day before a huge launch. Resting up today, so I’m feeling good and ready for tomorrow’s super exciting day!!! I can’t even believe branding photography experiences launch in less than 24 hours! Who’s excited?! 🙋🏼♀️✨🥳
On today's episode of things I decide to do on a Wednesday morning: I started putting my clean laundry away this morning and ended up pulling all my clothes and shoes out of my closet to be sorted, reorganized, donated, or sold. HELP 😆 I'm not the kind of person that loves cleaning or home organization (I REALLY wish I was), so when inspiration strikes... I definitely have to take advantage of the moment! (Looking at this picture now... I'm thinking my desk may need to be next on my de-cluttering list!) Two hours later, I have two full bags for donation, sorted out quite a few things to be sent to @thredup & put all of the other things back into my closet in a way that actually makes sense. I was so surprised to see just how many things I had laying around that haven't been worn in years... I can't even remember the last time I did this, and I'm feeling so happy to have a closet that is a lot more organized! This afternoon and evening will be spent getting in a quick workout before hopping on a call to dive into all the fun timeline and portrait details with one of my sweet couples before their wedding & later, I get to live chat with my brides in our Facebook group! What are you up to this Wednesday?
I'm going to sound like a broken record, but I can't even believe that branding sessions will be launching at the end of this week! 🎉 PINCH ME!! I cannot WAIT to share these with you! I'm in the final stages of finishing edits on text, checking and converting links & scheduling emails and content for the big day! Something VERY exciting arrived in the mail last night that made this whole launch feel SO much more real! Any guesses as to what it is?! (Here's a hint that might just give it away: The sweet gal in this photo is featured on the cover 😉) More to come later this week, y'all!!!
Wishing this guy the happiest 94th birthday! 🥳🎂🎉 Forever looking for excuses to share images from my time photographing my Mommom & Poppop on their anniversary because documenting my family is one of my favorite things to do! So thankful they humor me and allow me to do so! 💕
It is a BUSY week here at CKP! I'm prepping all the final details for Friday's Branding Experience launch all while prepping for next week's doubleheader wedding weekend! Catch me behind my computer, prepping allllll the fun things this week! PS if you want exclusive, early access to all the branding experience goodness, tap the top link in my profile and select the top link on the page! I'll be sharing all the pretty details with this crew on Thursday night. AHH I CAN'T WAIT 💕
I took *most* of yesterday off, and y'all... it was a TREAT. I didn't do anything special, but I DID take pretty much a full day away from writing! Let me explain... I've been putting so much pressure on myself to get all of the details together for next week's branding experience launch (WE'RE ONE WEEK AWAY, PEOPLE!!!! 🥳🎉) all while producing a log of blog content to keep me going well into the next couple of months. It's been so much fun but also A LOT of writing and a lot of time spent alone at my desk. What starts off as being tons of fun on Monday can turn to being pretty brain draining and lonely midweek. Your girl is a true extrovert, so sitting alone at my desk in my bedroom for days at a time as I do during this time of year is well... pretty draining. One of the hardest things about running your own business is knowing and recognizing boundaries. We wear so many hats each day. I find I have the hardest time understanding when a moment of rest is more beneficial than a check mark on a to-do list... can anyone else relate? I was feeling pretty drained and discouraged when it came to #allthethings, so instead of forcing my way through it yesterday, I took a break. I do understand that I'm very lucky to have the opportunity to take breathers as needed in this season, and I'm so grateful for that. Instead of feeling burned out this morning, I'm feeling excited and READY to wrap up my tasks for this week. I'm slowly but surely learning my boundaries, as hard as it may be some days 💕
